Yes, a few days ago I published an application for Linux called Screenkey. It's a useful tool to create screencasts, I was inspired by Screenflick for Mac OS and it's based on the key-mon project code. Here you can watch a demo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GqCu0wI-hc This open source project is hosted on http://launchpad.net/screenkey and anyone is ...

The best one I've found is Key Status Monitor (KSM). Most other programs only show mouse activity or only keyboard activity, KSM shows both. KSM is an open source GTK+ application used to show live keyboard and mouse status for teaching and screencasts. you can feed it a ton of different command-line switches for a different display. For example, using the ...

Quicktime X, built in Snow Leopard is a convenient tool to produce screencasts ! You're running 10.6 so it's free for you. I guess it won't be hard to record them locally and later integer the videos into the pages with a web based video player (that's what i did) ! I've used it to make basics howtos for my students.

You can install v4l2loopback. It is a kernel module that simulates a webcam. Load it with: modprobe v4l2loopback Then you need to send the video stream to the device /dev/video0 using a program like ffmpeg. In order to capture the desktop and forward it to /dev/video0 with ffmpeg, you can use the following command line: ffmpeg -f x11grab -r 15 -s ...

According to GNOME API doc, the gnome-shell (shell-recorder class) screen recorder is basically pipeline all screenshot output to a pipeline which is then encoded by GStreamer. You can use your dconf-editor application and navigate to org.gnome.shell.recorder, in this schema you will find 3 options: file-extension - default on my box to webm framerate - ...

And most importantly. How can I record only one window? If you can get the XID of the window, you can pass it to ximagesrc. E.g., if you know what the unique title of the Window is, you can use xwininfo and a little magic to get that. In bash: TITLE="Terminal Six" WINDOW_XID=$(xwininfo -tree -root -all | egrep $TITLE | sed -e 's/^ *//' | cut -d\ ...

Yes, you can use AutoHotKey. I'm sure somebody else could whip this up in no time, but I can at least imagine a possible structure to the script: Define a Suspend hotkey and start suspended, so that you can use your keyboard when you don't want to be mashing. Alternatively, or in addition, use #IfWinActive to restrict the mashing-keys function to the one ...

What you're looking for is a program called Camouflage. From the home page: Do you have way too many items on your desktop? Do you hate cleaning up that mess? Camouflage is the right utility for you. It hides all the icons and leaves nothing but the pure wallpaper. It goes in the menu bar and you can show and hide icons at your will.

I like iShowU and Screenflow. I believe the default output of iShowU is mov but ScreenFlow has various export options.

What distro are you using? I've had success with WebCamStudio under Arch combined with the Livestream web-based "studio." It's been a little while since I've used it, though. http://www.ws4gl.org/ What are you trying to do exactly? ffmpeg compiled with x11grab can record the desktop. I've had limited success pushing that to Ustream, but again it's been a ...

Closest thing I can find to off the shelf would be Gabby, but that's going to require Roku box(es). The Linux solution you link to illustrates some of the issues you're up against. True plug 'n chug requires all the functionality in those scripts to be incorporated into a DLNA digital media server. I don't see any with that kind of capability. Hmmmmm, ...

De-verb is a plugin, not a standalone application. It requires a Host to run in, something capable of running RTAS, VST, or AU. Audacity (freeware) can run VST & AU plugins. Some Video editors can too, but I don't know which ones on Windows, other than what Google could tell me - such as Magix Movie - though I have no idea whether it's any good or ...

Camstudio should be able to produce much smaller videos. It depends on the video codec used. Jawor's Xvid codec is often recommended. But with 4 hours you will probably exceed the 2 GB file size limitation. I suggest to take a look at Open Broadcaster Software. It's a very powerful open source recording and broadcasting software and uses the highly ...

This is probably a shot in the dark but I have a feeling that --screen-fps 5 \ should be the problem. try to change 5 to a higher value like 50 and see what happens.

Use v4l2loopback with mplayer. Download it, compile it (make and su -c 'make install'), load the module with su -c 'modprobe v4l2loopback', then change one line in the file examples/yuv4mpeg_to_v4l2.c of the v4l2loopback source folder from v.fmt.pix.pixelformat = V4L2_PIX_FMT_YUV420; to v.fmt.pix.pixelformat = V4L2_PIX_FMT_YVU420; and do make in this ...

If you cannot make the quality better, decrease the resolution slightly, or increase the size of your fonts used to increase visibility, other then that I don't really know what to add!

Camstudio is a free screen capture tool that IIRC saves as AVI. It would certainly be worth a shot. (please ignore the fact that the site looks like a spammy sales page, I have no idea why they designed it like that)

RecordTS, from TSFactory, is a RDP client that can record the remote session. It exports them in AVI and SWF (Flash). It's not very cheap unfortunately. You might want to look at ObserveIT too. The Xpress version is free.

VH Screen capture was exactly what I wanted. It comes in a bundle with VH Media studio which lets you mix multiple Webcams, with Picture in picture and fade effects, which was great for what I was trying to do.

Seriously I've used Windows Movie Maker that is on my Win XP machine and I've really liked it, oh and it's free. Just open the video you've made in Win Movie Maker and there's a channel there where you can add your own music or narrate and that's what I've used to put background music on my vids.

Some audio drivers, especially those installed by default in Vista/7, don't allow you to record Stereo Mix, i.e. your output, so you might need to find and install another driver (after uninstalling the old one). http://www.stereo-mix.com/ links to downloads for common integrated audio solutions.

Compression is a natural enemy of Text. Particularly if the text is small. As SevenT2 suggested you should increase the size of your text to make it readable after YouTube compresses it. You will notice that most YouTube videos wisely fill almost the whole screen with large text, to ensure that it is readable.

TightVNC is supposed to able to record VNC sessions; however, not to a video file, but to a format only playable in the VNC viewer itself.
