SimpleScreenRecorder is a Linux program that was created to record programs and games. The original goal was to create a program that was just really simple to use, the result is actually a pretty powerful program. It's 'simple' in the sense that it's easier to use than ffmpeg/avconv or VLC, because it has a straightforward user interface. Features: * Graphical user interface (Qt-based). * Faster than VLC and ffmpeg/avconv. * Records the entire screen or part of it, or records OpenGL applications directly (similar to Fraps on Windows). * Synchronizes audio and video properly (a common issue with VLC and ffmpeg/avconv). * Reduces the video frame rate if your computer is too slow (rather than using up all your RAM like VLC does). * Fully multithreaded: small delays in any of the components will never block the other components, resulting is smoother video and better performance on computers with multiple processors. * Pause and resume recording at any time (either by clicking a button or by pressing a hotkey). * Shows statistics during recording (file size, bit rate, total recording time, actual frame rate, ...). * Can show a preview during recording, so you don't waste time recording something only to figure out afterwards that some setting was wrong. * Uses libav/ffmpeg libraries for encoding, so it supports many different codecs and file formats (adding more is trivial). * Sensible default settings: no need to change anything if you don't want to. * Tooltips for almost everything: no need to read the documentation to find out what something does.
