So, I wanted to get some feedback before I presented my sessions at the upcoming MySQL Conference (be there, it’ll be cool). I thought… hrrm.. distributed company… I can’t just ask a couple of people to listen to me in the conference room as we don’t really have one (apart from IRC).
So… I thought.. hrrm… didn’t i see something about screencasting on the program for linux.con f.au ? Well, the answer was yes – Screencasting HOWTO. Started watching – I then proceeded to try the list of screencasting software.
Istanbul didn’t work – I got images and audio, but only when there was a change to what was being displayed… so a static slide with me talking, didn’t work. Same with a similar python script.
I then grabbed recordMyDesktop and it worked. ./configure; make; ./src/recordMyDesktop …. and ctrl-c when done.. encodes to Ogg Theora and *WORKS*
I then got to convince some coworkers to spend time listening to me speak about stuff they may already know to test it before the conf.
