SimpleScreenRecorder is a Linux program created to record programs and games.

My original goal was to create a program that was just really simple to use, but as I was writing it I started adding more and more features, and 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.


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) but OpenGL recording is disabled on Pandora.

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).

Can also do live streaming (experimental).

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.

I'm working on adding some missing codecs, volume of audio recorded is fine on my pandora..check volume controls on xfce, adapting interface is a little problem for me because don't know well QT, i need some help from an expert.

One more question... I know SMPlayer2 can display what you see from a webcam using tv:// as an URL -> Can Simple Recorder record that output ? Have you ever tried?

Some feedback : 1) audio recording works but the volume is almost inaudible, even at max volume on Pandora on playback. ANy way to fix that ? 2) can you tweak the interface to make it fit on the Pandora screen ?
