I've been searching a lot for a desktop recoder on RHEL 6 lately (for tutorial videos about how to use RHEL desktop for non-linux users)

But unfortunately, I didn't find anything... Just some desktop recorder for Ubuntu, none for Fedora or CentOS. (Maybe I wasn't looking where I should have...)

So there is my question, do you know any good desktop recorders for Linux?

These are my RHEL version informations:

  • RHEL 6.1

  • x86_64

  • Kernel : 2.6.32-131.4.1.el6.x86_64

ps : If my RHEL configuration info is lacking, ask me, and I'll provide them as quick as I can. Solutions mentioned in Screen capturing application for Linux do not work in x86_64.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

All the solution on the possible duplicate don't work for RHEL x86_64. Already tried them. – Anarko_Bizounours Jun 22 '11 at 9:40

I can confirm that Istanbul does in fact work on Red Hat-based Linux distributions. It may not have yet been updated for RHEL 6, but you can try building from source. The Fedora Wiki has an entire article with instructions on setting the software up for screencasting.

Another alternative to record operating systems that do not have recording software is to install it in a virtual machine and record from the host operating system. This also allows you to have a smaller workspace to record, allowing for smaller resolution videos.

Thanks you. I was thinking that Istanbul wasn't working because I use a x64_86, but now that I think about it I think it's more because of RHEL 6. I'll try this out today and tell if it work. – Anarko_Bizounours Jul 5 '11 at 6:35
