Linux Screen/Video Capture ?


I would like to know if anyone knows of a quality screen capture uitlity for linux that captures ALL dynamic inputs:
-keyboard
-mouse
-window changes

and converts the captured result to a video file. I am tring to put together a Demo for my thesis as a training tool.

thanks in advance!!

The only thing I can think of is setting up
VNC and using rfbproxy to do the
recording, and later on vncviewer for playback.

HIH, or someone can come up with a
better solution ;)

Edit: OK, so I thought that's not that great,
and looked on freshmeat :) ... have a look
at http://namazu.org/~satoru/x11rec/

Cheers,
Tink

Krut Screen Video Capture

You can try Krut Video Screen Capture. I use it and it is very stable and easy to use. You will need Java to use it.

I'm not sure, but doesn't recordmydesktop do all of that?:

Krut Screen Video Capture

I tried both and found Krut to be better, although that couild be my setup (Centos 6 minimal with Fluxbox) recordmydesktop generated a lot of stuttering which made it unstable to use, whilst Krut is rock solid.
