I am going to start making Ubuntu tutorial videos again but this time around I will like to know what is the best format for uploading videos to my personal blog or to youtube. In the past I was using xdiv with avi container. But now I want the communities experience with this and I am looking for:
The best or most recommended/used program to edit videos that comes with Ubuntu or has a PPA for Ubuntu.
The best codec that has a very good quality but at the same time makes the video's size smaller. As point 1, it should come with Ubuntu or have a PPA for it. This is a tough one for me since I am looking for a good one that shows good quality and good size. It has always been difficult for me to find the ideal one.
The best format or container for this type of videos. I get confused between ogv, mp4, mpg and which one offers better stuff.
In all 3 cases the software should be open source and I will be using/recommending Firefox and Chrome for the websites, so it will be limited to the technology that this 2 browsers can work with (NOT IE friendly).
The videos, if this help in some way will be captured with gtkrecordmydesktop since I find it, it delivers the best quality with several I have tested. If I am wrong please, with all do respect correct me. After the video is made I will start using the editor and codecs asked in the 3 questions above.
What I will be capturing is most of the time the desktop but also some screens of Virtualbox for showing 11.10 and 12.04 installation procedures. Apart from this some games running in Wine and some games running natively will also be showed (0 AD, UFO:AI..). I do not know if this will affect what codec will be recommended but I put this here as a bonus just in case.
Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.
