Linux Screenshotters

Post  Forty-Two on Sat Feb 04, 2012 11:32 pm

I've been looking for some screenshotters that record what is coming through the mic, as well as out of the speakers. I've tried istanbul and recordmydesktop. Neither records sound properly, and neither inputs from the mic. Is there anything else for linux?

hi Forty-Two

welcome!!

the best way to record screencasts on linux is to use ffmpeg in a terminal window

install ffmpeg and try this command

ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -i plughw:2,0 -f x11grab -r 15 -s 1440x900 -i :0.0 -acodec pcm_s16le -vcodec libx264 -preset ultrafast -threads 0 output.mkv


plughw:2,0 is for what usb mic input you got (assuming you use a usb mic) you may need to change it to plughw:1,0 depending on how many devices you have plugged in at the time...

-s 1440x900 is for your monitor resolution.... so change it to your native screen size

output.mkv is the file it will create.... might be easier to set it up like this "home/user/output.mkv" so you know exactly where it is

ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -i plughw:2,0 -f x11grab -r 15 -s 1440x900 -i :0.0 -acodec pcm_s16le -vcodec libx264 -preset ultrafast -threads 0 /home/yourusername/output.mkv


lemme know how it goes
