Feature-rich screen recorder for X11 and OpenGL
  20 reviews

Simple Screen Recorder is, despite its name, an actually feature-rich screen recorder. The name reflects the fact that it is simple to use unlike many other free screen recording applications available. It can be easily configured to start recording from an intuitive wizard-like interface.

It can record the entire screen or part of it directly. The recording can be paused and resumed at any time. Many different file formats and codecs are supported. To perform an X11 recording, all it takes is selecting an area on the root window with the mouse, choosing an output file and pressing record, either by using the mouse or using a hotkey.

It has a Qt-based graphical user interface.

Its complexity becomes apparent in its powerful features. It allows one to record X11 screen areas and fullscreen OpenGL applications including sound supporting both ALSA, PulseAudio, JACK and OSS. It uses libavformat to encode the recorded material into a variety of video formats. Scaling the recorded video is possible as well as configuring the encoding quality for the codec chosen directly from the user interface.

This package contains the main program.

Відмінна програма, проста та дуже зручна для запису екрана. Хотілося б більш очевидний і простий спосіб налаштувати запис через апаратний кодек, але навіть так все працює добре.

Record easily the screen, with the mouse the sound or any other pre-set parameters, with the size of the screen the FPS, and so on it's a pure wonder.

Egy béna hosszasan írja a magyarázatokat de így is alig érti a másik hogy most mi van. Egy Chad bedob egy videót a csetbe ami mindent megmutat és elmagyaráz. És az egészet pár másodperc volt elkészíteni.

Mega geiles Programm. Gut verständlich und es tut, was es soll. Ich kann, wenn ich zwei Bildschirme betreibe, sogar auswählen welcher aufgenommen werden soll. Auch die Vorschau über das aufgenommene Bild und den aufgenommenen Ton ist klasse. Mein liebster Bildschirmaufnehmer.

It records very well, but it needs 3 things to be perfect: 1. it must have an option to minimize to tray and to launch already minimized; 2. it should launch on a ready-to-record state, instead of launching on this annoying useless settings windows (generaly, we only set the settings once, and we could change them later in a settings button if we needed to); 3. it should have an option to auto-save a file when finishing recording. Please, consider implementing these features!
