Screencasting on Fedora [20]

To start with, did you know you can record a screencast on Fedora just by pressing CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-R?

No?

Me either. How fantastically easy is that?

Once you’ve pressed the keys, you get a little red circle in the top right of your screen that indicates recording is on. When you’re done, just press CTRL-SHIFT-ALT-R again to stop.

The file will be automatically saved in your <user>/Videos folder with a name along the lines of:

Screencast from 17-10-14 11_57_52.webm

Importantly, this DOES NOT record audio.

Well that’s annoying.

And neither did I.

Sigh.
