I'm trying to change my configuration so that the default ctrl+alt+shift+r also records audio. I've used this code:

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.recorder pipeline "queue ! videorate ! vp8enc quality=10 speed=2 ! mux. pulsesrc ! audio/x-raw-int ! queue ! audioconvert ! vorbisenc ! mux. webmmux name=mux"

In my console, and it works ok, it just doesn't stop once I hit ctrl+alt+shift+r again.

Any help would rock!

  • This isn't an answer, but here's the upstream bug for this issue, including comments on the audio-doesn't-stop issue: bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=665548 – mattdm Nov 3 '13 at 16:09
  • @Costa has this problem been solved? Is it still a problem for you? When you posted this question 5+ years ago it was about Ubuntu 12.04 which is EOL or another EOL version of Ubuntu. I wanted to flag your question as not reproducible but would like your input first. Thanks. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Jul 24 '17 at 1:22
  • @WinEunuuchs2Unix I would love it if this worked, but it still doesn't. I'm happy to retry, but it requires a restart. Let me know if you need that. I'm on 14.04 now. – Costa Michailidis Jul 24 '17 at 4:19
  • @Costa I'm not sure why you need to restart. Can't you test in Ubuntu 14.04 and reword the question as needing it to work under 14.04? This way the question is no longer about Ubuntu 12.04 which is EOL. I don't use screencast so cannot help you solve the problem. I'm just on a project to close unanswered questions for EOL Ubuntu versions. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Jul 24 '17 at 4:37
  • @WinEunuuchs2Unix okay, so right now on my system (14.04 gnome ubuntu) ctrl + alt + shift + R starts and stops screen recording, but doesn't record any audio from the microphone or from the system (like playing a YouTube video during the screen recording for example). – Costa Michailidis Jul 24 '17 at 18:48

An alternative is to use this Gnome Extension EasyScreenCast, it uses gnome-shell's screencast

It handles audio and many more options

You need to choose what audio source to record from, as shown here:

  • I think the user (as well as myself) would like to make the tool to record the sound the computer produces - the one that comes out. Hence the answer will be more informational if it'd tell that in the example of the screenshot, one should choose the output port to use. – Doron Behar Nov 10 '20 at 9:03
  • @DoronBehar In the screenshot above, I have 2 of them, Built-in... and GK104..., which respectively are, my motherBoard's jack audio ouput, and my HDMI connected TV. If I connect my microphone, then it becomes a third option available to choose from. So in other words, the sources displayed in that list, are all the inputs (microphones) and the outputs (speakers) available in your system. – Madacol Nov 11 '20 at 0:40
  • Done!, sorry I misunderstood your comment twice! – Madacol Nov 11 '20 at 0:49
