Screencasting in Linux with FFMPEG

Screencasting in Linux with FFMPEG:

Open a terminal and issue the command below to start recording a video screencast of your desktop -

$ ffmpeg -f x11grab -s wxga -r 25 -i :0.0 -sameq /tmp/output.mpg

press CTRL-C to exit.

- Where output is the outcome file.
- The $ sign at the start of the command is to signify the terminal's prompt, no need to type this in.
- You can name your file and folder to where the video will be saved whatever you like, in this tutorial I just use /tmp and output.mpg as the destination directory and outcome file name.
