SimpleScreenRecorder for BLFS


This is an application for capturing video playing on the screen. While there are various other ways to download or capture video (browser extensions, VLC, ffmpeg, etc.), I still find this to be handy sometimes.

Another important thing to report here is that it requires things that most BLFS systems probably already have. And it can be configured to build with PulseAudio or ALSA and Qt4 or Qt5.

You will need the following packages to compile SimpleScreenRecorder:

- GCC (>= 4.6)
- cmake
- pkg-config
- Qt4 (4.8 or newer) or Qt5 (5.7 or newer)
- ffmpeg or libav (libavformat, libavcodec, libavutil, libswscale)
- ALSA library
- PulseAudio library (optional, disable with -DWITH_PULSEAUDIO=FALSE)
- JACK library (optional, disable with -DWITH_JACK=FALSE)
- libGL (32 and 64 bit)
- libGLU (32 and 64 bit)
- libX11 (32 and 64 bit)
- libXfixes (32 and 64 bit)
- libXext
- libXi

If you have a 64-bit system and you want to compile the 32-bit GLInject library, you have to install some 32-bit libraries as well. Otherwise the regular packages are sufficient.
Following the instructions in the README file, it built and installed on my first try which is a very rare thing for me and external packages. And finally, it works as advertised. Expect to have to do some experimentation with whatever audio software/hardware is in use.

BLFS is Beyound Linux from Scratch? You should have said that. I was curious about your thread, but I was unsure about the meaning of that.

But with a search I discovered that

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_From_Scratch

mentions BLFS only after writing what it is.

--------------------------------------------

For LinuxQuestions: it is pretty ugly and bad that the quote I did from the first post is a simple removal of the quote it had. It should mention the quote exists where it was - without the need to check the quoted post.

This was posted on the LFS forum, so people here know what BLFS is, so it isn't needed to explain, if it had ( for instance ) been posted to to the 'general' forum, then an explanation would have been appropriate.

/-: Oh... I am sorry, then. I did not know that! I have always seen the parenthesis part, in the threads pointed in the Zero Reply Threads messages (where I discovered this thread), was part of the thread title.

So all of those are fora... there is a bunch of fora I did not know about! From this last ZRT message, I never read or noted these: Bodhi, Slackware, Ubuntu, Linux - Virtualization and Cloud, Red Hat, Linux Mint, Linux - Mobile (Shouldn't it be in AndroidQuestions? Or shouldn't AndroidQuestions be more general, so it includes everything mobile in one site?), Linux From Scratch. And probably a bunch of others neither.

No worries. Thanks for your interest in this thread.

I've gone back to the QupZilla browser (recently ended and now Falkon in KDE projects). It's a very nice browser, but it doesn't have the large collection of extensions of Chrome or Firefox which I don't want to install anymore.

So for example, I'm having to acquire and learn alternative ways to download video and/or audio. WebTorrent-Desktop is one of those ways, and this SimpleScreenRecorder is another.

Anyway, since it compiled and installed so easily and trouble-free, I thought I should mention it here since it's not in the BLFS book and maybe somebody else might need it too.
