You need ffmpeg installed.
#!/bin/bash if which ffmpeg >/dev/null; then echo "ffmpeg exists" else echo does not exist echo "sudo apt-get install ffmpeg" exit fi echo "Name of video?" read name echo "Resolution?" read ress echo "FPS? Up to 25." read fps ffmpeg -f x11grab -r $fps -s $ress -i :0.0 /tmp/$name.avi mv /tmp/$name.avi $HOME echo "Your screencast was saved to: $HOME/$name.avi"
You can either copy and paste the code, or you can download the script from here:
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg chmod +x screencaster ./screencastr
