byzanz-record - record your desktop session to an animated GIF


byzanz-record [options] FILENAME


Byzanz records your desktop session to an animated GIF. You can record your entire screen, a single window, or an arbitrary region. byzanz-record allows you to make recordings from the command line. Graphical users may want to use the panel applet instead.


Application Options:

-d, --duration=SECS
Duration of animation (default: 10 seconds)
Delay before start (default: 1 second)
-c, --cursor
Record mouse cursor
-a, --audio
Record audio from the default input device. This only works if the output format supports it and will otherwise cause an error.
-x, --x=PIXEL
X coordinate of rectangle to record
-y, --y=PIXEL
Y coordinate of rectangle to record
-w, --width=PIXEL
Width of recording rectangle
-h, --height=PIXEL
Height of recording rectangle
-v, --verbose
Be verbose
X display to use

Help Options:

After byzanz-record is finished, the recording is written to FILENAME. The format is determined by the filename extension. The following formats are supported:
Record to an animated GIF image. Use this if you want to record a mostly static screen with a limited amount of colors, such as using a file manager or an office application. This is the default and will be used if an unrecognized extension is used.
ogg, ogv
Record to an Ogg Theora video. This format supports audio. Use this if you want to record dynamic contents, such as video playback.
Record to a Flash Screen video. This recording method is lossless. Use it if you want to postprocess the file in other applications.
Record to Byzanz' internal debugging format. This is useful for benchmarking Byzanz or if you want to convert the recording to multiple formats later. You can use byzanz-playback(1) to convert the file.
