Record a movie of your screen

This simple utility records a movie (video only, no audio) of your screen.

It it based entirely on code from srs, and has been maintained as an example application to test the vpx-encode library.

Note: compile and test in release mode. Otherwise, converting the video frames is too slow for realtime encoding.


This can be installed with:

cargo install record-screen

Don't forget to install libvpx.

Video Format

The video is stored as a WebM file.
