5 free screen-recording apps for Linux

Are you a computer expert stepping into the world of video tutorials? Or someone who’s looking to record and share bugs in an application? Whatever the reason or requirement, whenever you want to create a digital recording of your computer screen, what you need is good screen recording (a.k.a. screencasting) software.

Such tools are available for all popular platforms, including Windows, Mac and Linux. In this roundup, we take a look at five popular free and open-source screen recording applications for Linux: Byzanz, Kazam, RecordMyDesktop, ScreenStudio and SimpleScreenRecorder.


Version tested: 0.2.1

Byzanz is a command line-based desktop recording tool. It creates animated GIFs by default, although you can also save your recording as an FLV, OGG, OGV or WebM file. The tool also allows you to record to its internal debugging format (.byzanz); this is useful for benchmarking purposes or in cases where you want to convert the recording to any other supported format later.

Integrated into Microsoft Internet Explorer® for Windows®, netXtract delivers a breakthrough approach to document navigation and relevance determination. netXtract automatically indexes each document displayed by IE, extracts all contexts for any key term you choose and allows you to “jump” directly to the context you find most interesting. netXtract also allows you to define custom filters, or “dictionaries” of related terms by area of study, interest or business focus (e.g. medical, legal, financial, business intelligence, etc.). Build your own personal knowledge base Once you’ve found relevant information, you decide exactly what to save for future reference. netXtract allows you to build a local personal Knowledge Base of any text you select from documents displayed in Internet Explorer. You can also save to your Knowledge Base from any other application (MS Word, email client, etc.). netXtract’s Knowledge Base (KB) Manager allows you to categorize, maintain and query your Knowledge Base. Selecting any entry saved from a web document returns you directly to that point in the original online document.
