Creating an OGG Theora screencast with VLC on Ubuntu


 / Published in: Bash
 

It is easy to create a screencast using VLC 1.0.2 on Ubuntu 9.10.

I use dual screens with Xinerama. Setting --screen-width and --screen-height to its resolution allows to only record the first screen.

See http://wiki.videolan.org/Documentation:Modules/screen and http://wiki.videolan.org/Documentation:StreamingHowTo/AdvancedStreamingUsingtheCommandLine for more documentation.

  1. cvlc screen:// --screen-mouse-image cursor.png --screen-fps=12 --screen-width=1680 --screen-height=1050 --sout "#transcode{venc=theora,quality:10,scale=0.75,fps=12}:duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=ogg,dst=desktop.ogg}}}" --no-sout-audio
