Byzanz - free opensource Desktop Recording (command-line) tool

Post date: October 11, 2008, 22:10 Category: Desktop Views: 4119 Comments
Tutorial quote: Byzanz is a free opensource GNOME based Command-Line utility to capture desktop recording software for linux. This should probably be the coolest command-line utility that I have seen in recent days. Byzanz records your desktop session to an animated GIF. You can record your entire screen, a single window, an arbitrary region or even follow the cursor. Given that it is only a GIF format makes it even more an interesting proposition as the file size is going to be very small.
