for me I like to use a mix of “ffmpeg” and “gtk record my desktop”.the trick would be to find out witch one works the best on what hardware and with what game or DE.

ffmpeg codes

ffmpeg -f alsa -i pulse -f x11grab -r 30 -s 1680*1050 -i :0.0 -vcodec libx264 -preset ultrafast -threads 4 -y -sameq vidcast.mkv

be sure to change the 1680*1050 to your own rez.

ffmpeg huff,,this will put out a large video,,seems to work great with some game EMU’s

ffmpeg -f alsa -i pulse -f…


  1. ffmpeg i what i use the most,to bad its not as user friendly like the others, I did see a few months back a GUI for it, by clicking on check boxes it would build the ffmpeg code for you,to bad the code that it would spit out would never work tho lol.
