Are there any gameplay screen recorders out there for Ubuntu?

I intend to use it for Urban Terror recording.


The app that I use and love for game-play recording is SimpleScreenRecorder.

enter image description here

It's low on resource-use, and records video and sound, and as its name suggests it's very simple to use.

To install simpleScreenRecorder go to a terminal by pressing ctrl+alt+T and run these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:maarten-baert/simplescreenrecorder
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install simplescreenrecorder

note if you want to record 32-bit OpenGL applications on a 64-bit system run this command too:

sudo apt-get install simplescreenrecorder-lib:i386

Note2 the openGL recorder is still experimental but runs very smoothly and with no problem.


Instead of searching for a gameplay recorder, you should search for a screen recorder. Here's a good one:

gkt-recordmydesktop -- audio and video capture
