Screencasting is a great way to share information. I use it to show bugs to my team, to record training videos of the project management system I am working on, and even to record demos of project deliveries to clients. I use Jing to record videos from my Mac. But wanted to find something useful for Linux.
recordMyDesktop is a great Linux tool to record the entire desktop, a portion or an application. It outputs Ogg format video, which can easily be converted to AVI, QuickTime or FLV. It’s been there for a while, and is pretty solid.
What sold me though, was this video explaining how to use recordMyDesktop – and then to convert saved video into other formats. It’s easy to follow and covers all important aspects.
If you want to record screens from Linux, this is the best tool. Try it out!
