recordMyDesktop is a program that captures audio and video data from a Linux desktop session, producing an Ogg-encapsulated Theora-Vorbis file.
recordMyDesktop's main goal is to be as unobstrusive as possible by proccessing only regions of the screen that have changed.
To compile the program you have to go through the regular drill:
~$ gzip -d recordmydesktop-x.y.z.tar.gz
~$ tar -x recordmydesktop-x.y.z.tar
~$ cd recordmydesktop-x.y.z
~$ sudo make install
You will need the development headers for the following:
As well the regular headers, plus the ones for pthreads (both of which you should have if you have compiled anything else before).
Of the above, the most likely to be missing are probably those of libXdamage and libtheora but any recent linux distribution should offer an easy way to get them.
