How to make screencasts using FLOSS.
How to make screencasts with SimpleScreenRecorder
Whether you’re wanting to make a video tutorial, capture an interface quirk for a bug report, or looking to show off your gaming prowess, there are a bunch of screen-recording tools available for Ubuntu.
While apps like GTK Record My Desktop and Kazam are popular they are not necessarily the best. Results can vary. Kazam in Ubuntu 14.04 is still quite buggy if you don't use the default settings for everything, even if it looks a promising application.
The Qt-based SimpleScreenRecorder isn’t as well known as those above, and while it doesn’t reinvent the wheel, or redefine usability, what it does do it does well. Very well, in fact.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:maarten-baert/simplescreenrecorder sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y simplescreenrecorder
