recordMyDesktop Reviews

A necessary application

I love and use gtkRecordMyDesktop, but beware there are problems that I have experienced time and time again.

Cons:
1. With sound recording enabled, video becomes unsynchronized after a couple of minutes.
2. It is unable to record FULL SCREEN games (like every other Linux recorder I have tried sadly)
3. Only records in .ogv (no option to change this)

Pros:
1. Supremely simple and easy to use User Interface.
2. Has a plethora of good functionality and changeable settings at your disposal.
3. Hardly feel any performance setback when recording (tested on my measly low specced HP laptop).

The best combo I have found when recording games is to use gtkRecordMyDesktop for VIDEO only and outRec for desktop sound recording. Combine these two, and I'm good to go.
