recordMyDesktop is a
program that captures audio-video data of a desktop session,
producing an ogg-encapsulated theora-vorbis file.
recordMyDesktop tries to be as unobstrusive as possible by
processing only regions of the screen that have changed.
The program is separated in two parts; a simple command line
tool that performs the basic tasks of capturing and encoding and an
interface that exposes the program functionality in a usable way. The
frontend comes in two versions. One frontend is written with the gtk
toolkit (named gtk-recordMyDesktop) and a more recent one with the Qt
recordMyDesktop also offers the ability to record audio
through ALSA, OSS or the JACK audio server.
