According to this Ubuntu Forums thread I can't use xvidcap, VLC or screencast apps like kazam.

There are several screen recording tools that will allow you to record a window (with audio), a portion of the screen or the whole screen, which includes but not limits to:

And there are probably lots of more useful tools. But this is what I have tested and does the trick for me. They are also probably in the repositories by default but I can't say that for sure.

Good luck!
