I have to record my desktop screen for at most 30 minutes using command line parameters.

I have an Adobe Air application that works fine with VLC player, it records the screen, but on Linux only — it will not work on Windows.

I need an alternative for that, i.e a command line open-source video screen recorder for Windows.

What you are looking for is a Screen Recording program.

My Screen Recorder Pro 3.1 supports command line usage (Not Free)

Is there any other Screen Recorder Software which supports command line usage ? – Muhammad Irfan Aug 26 '10 at 7:42

CamStudio is free.

What you're looking for can be called screen recording, screen capturing, or screencasting software.

VLC can record the desktop, though sans audio.
