Screencast with a gstreamer pipeline November 1, 2005Posted by Carthik in ubuntu.
I suppose it should be possible to use all the cool tools that the gstreamer framework has to capture the screen, or an application window, and record sounds concurrently to produce screencasts.
I thought that someone should have already used the gstreamer pipeline editor to come up with such an app, but I may be wrong, ’cause I cannot find it. I even think I read about some gstreamer developer mentioning it once, but a search reveals nothing. Too bad the planet-planet software does not save old entries. I would have liked to search the Gnome and Gstreamer planets.
So does anyone know of a gstreamer-powered screencasting tool for Linux?
A screencast is a multimedia demonstration of an application, or of the entire desktop. I already know of vnc2swf and wink. The former is a pain to get running, and to use, and the latter is not a native Linux app, and is also not an open-source tool.
