When recording a specific window by recordmydesktop, what should I do for investigating "windowid" specified as a "windowid" option?

Open a terminal and type:

xwininfo -display :0

As an alternative, you can use this one-liner:

recordmydesktop --windowid `xwininfo -display :0 | grep 'id: 0x' | grep -Eo '0x[a-z0-9]+'`

  • This is brilliant! In my case, I had to omit -display :0
