Im unable to record videos in webm format with any screen recording software on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I have tried using Kazam, Tibesti, Eidete etc. All of them failed to record webm videos.

Do you have any idea what might be the problem ? I can play webm videos though.

I was not aware before today that I can not record webm videos. Today I have installed a new screen recording software called "Eidete" which only records in webm. After installing that and messing with various settings I finally find out the problem is with WebM format.

Any help is greately appriciated. I have made a post on how I have installed "Eidete" screen-casting tool on Ubuntu 12.04 x86. The link is here: http://www.cappredia.blogspot.in/
