Increase 30 Second Screencast Limit On Fedora 21

I wrote a post a little while back explaining how to use the built-in screencast tool on Fedora 20.

I’ve just noticed that the latest Fedora release (21) limits the screencast length to 30 seconds.

Nooo!

It’s okay. If you want to record for longer than 30 seconds, you can change the time using gsettings.

View the existing time with:

gsettings get org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys max-screencast-length

And set a new time (0 for unlimited) with:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys max-screencast-lenth

gsettings

Nice and easy 🙂
