Is there a way to record my screen, as well as the internal audio? Like, if I were recording a game, it would record the screen, and the sounds from the game.

For games specifically, you could try glc: see my answer for this question. –  user76204 Jan 6 '13 at 19:52

Maybe is RecordMyDesktop something for you? It has the ability to record your Screen and Audio, but I'm not sure if it supports games.

You can install it with sudo apt-get install recordmydesktop. If you want a GUI, you need to install one of the packages gtk-recordmydesktop (GTK) or recorditnow (QT).

It's quite hard to use it with Games unfortunately, I found the OpenGL recorder quite bad last time I tried it –  MrVaykadji Mar 17 '14 at 16:41

I am using recordscreen.py script that launches ffmpeg or avconv with appropriate options to save screencast to a file. I am not sure about recording games, because real-time video compressing is hard even without game in foreground.
