How do I record my desktop interaction (video) and audio directly in MP4 format?
I have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
There are a number of tools, but first you should ensure you have the MP4 codecs installed. See here for instructions.
Once that is done, there are a number of tools available to you:
to install this.
Use the following command:
This records both sound and video of my screen. I have an attached monitor, so :0.0 is that monitor. The -r 3 keeps the file size smaller by doing 3 frames per second, which causes the mouse to jerk around slightly, but is suitable for tutorials. Increase that 3 towards 30 for much higher quality (but larger file size). The -aq 50 stands for audio quality at 50%, which is suitable for listening to tutorials on your laptop, but not suitable for like a large conference, where removing the -aq option might be best.
