I have been trying recently many screen recorders, since I want to record Age of Empires 2 HD matches.
Since I have to use wine to run the game, there's already a significant overhead and performance hit on the game's fps rates. So I'd like to know what would you say is the lightest screen recorder in order to reduce as much as possible the performance hit. The best I've tested so far is Kazam, which is taking quite a bit of fps (almost half) and even using ffmpeg and pulse from the command line result in even worse performance.
I am recording full hd and I have an i5-5200u processor with Intel HD 5500 graphics. Any suggestions?
Edit: I have tried so far Kazam, Simplescreenrecorder, RecordmyDesktop, ScreenStudio, OBS and FFmpeg via command line. The best performer so far has been Kazam.
