Screen Recording in Ubuntu

There are so many different ways to record screen on Ubuntu Linux systems. In this article, we’ll show you the quickest possible way to record your Ubuntu screen using third-party software.

Ubuntu also provides this feature by default but its screen recording time is very less and it requires some configuration changes to increase that as per our needs.

So instead of increasing difficulty let’s do it with “SimpleScreenRecorder”.

First of all you should know what is SimpleScreenRecorder?

SimpleScreenRecorder is a Linux program that I’ve created to record programs and games. There were so many screen capturing programs available in the market, but the author of this utility was not satisfied with them. So, he decided and create something that will help him in his work and shared the utility with linux community.

First of all update the apt-get.

[sourcecode language=”plain”]sudo apt-get update[/sourcecode]
