xvidcap 1.1.7 – Camtasia alternative in Linux Centos 6.4

Posted: March 31, 2013 in FX Pipeline, Linux

xvidcap is a screencast – Screen recording application for Linux.

It allows you to capture either parts of the full screen of your Linux desktop.

This makes it an ideal tool for making either demonstrations of software – such as tutorials or for documenting installation of different software packages.

The screen capture is actually done by saving each frame as an individual image – this is then sent through a transcoder which produces a complete MPEG video file.

A small tool to capture things going on on an X-Windows display to either individual frames or an MPEG video similar to tools such as Lotus ScreenCam orXVIDCap.
