screencast mpeg mpg video screen-capture linux xvidcap

Download xvidcap
xvidcap is a screencast application for Linux. It allows you to capture either parts of the full screen of your Linux desktop. This makes it an ideal tool for making either demonstrations of software - such as tutorials or for documenting installation of different software packages. The screen capture is actually done by saving each frame as an individual image - this is then sent through a transcoder which produces a complete MPEG video file.
