Linux Screencasting

4 posts in this topic

So I have an Ubuntu 2010.04 VM in VirtualBox at work set up for vuln-dev and pen testing. I'd like to start doing screencasting to show coworkers how attacks are performed and consequences of vulnerabilities. After unsuccessfully testing xvidcap, recordmydesktop, and VLC, I'm convinced that Linux has crappy (meaning, nonexistent) screencasting support. Has anyone had any success? If so, what's your setup?

Only tinkered with a bit, but there's an app called WebCamStudio (http://www.ws4gl.org/) which can stream screen caps along with video/audio from webcam.

What sort of resolution are you attempting and is it 'live or Memorex'.

The best way I've found is to use a Windows screencasting app and VNC into the Linux VM.

I figured out a semi-acceptable solution. I downloaded the trial version of Camtasia, which is for Windows. I can record my left monitor, which has VirtualBox running full-screen. Camtasia costs $300USD, so I'll use the trial for the 30 days I'm allowed then figure out what I want to do.
