Thread: Video/Audio Recording on OpenSuse 13.2

    Default Video/Audio Recording on OpenSuse 13.2

    I have OpenSuse 13.2, with Gnome 3.14.1. I want to make a YouTube video of a tutorial to work through some activities on Linux. Is it possible to record my screen activity and also audio via microphone? Is there an app to do so?

    Thanks,
    M Ridzon

    ffmpeg
    command line

    or

    VLC can record the desktop activity as well as some dedicated apps such as recordmydesktop

    Hi
    Desktop recording is part of the GNOME shell, press ctrl+shift+alt+r to
    start and stop. No audio AFAIK, but could be overlayed.

    Vokuscreen http://www.kohaupt-online.de/hp/

    and

    SimpleScreenRecorder http://www.maartenbaert.be/simplescreenrecorder/

    I think are the most used.

    I have seen Youtube videos about screen recording so now you have keywords for searching. I have tried Vokuscreen, works fine but is all "works for me" because seems like sensitive stuff. Is even on Windows so you need to test your self.

    There are hints about "Recording for Youtube" on SimpleScreenRecorder site. Also need to know how YT deal with videos and what not. What is "best" and all that.

    Can also try find some popular YT people doing Linux stuff. Chances are they will have videos on what they use. Look for something current not 2 year old stories.

    Has anybody ever installed SimpleScreenRecorder on OpenSuse 13.2, Gnome 3.14.1? I went to their website. They point OpenSuse users to the Packman repository. At Packman, there are 3 RPM files for the x86 framework, which is what I have. I have downloaded the RPM files, but don't know what to do next. In the terminal, I logged in as super user (su), changed to the Downloads directory, and then issued:

    Code:
    rpm -i simplescreenrecorder-0.3.3-1.4.x86_64.rpm
    But I get out failure messages:

    Code:
     Header V4 RSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 1abd1afb: NOKEY
    error: Failed dependencies:

        libswscale.so.3(LIBSWSCALE_3)(64bit) is needed by simplescreenrecorder-0.3.3-1.4.x86_64
    I have no idea what this means or how to fix it. Any thoughts?

    a couple of problems there, first you say you have x86 that's 32bit but you are installing a 64bit rpm, you probobly have a 64bit OS.
    Second do you have the packman repository setup?
    From your posts I'd say no, to get audio and video running you need to setup packman.
    add packman's repo

    Code:
    sudo zypper ar -f http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/packman/suse/openSUSE_13.2/ packman
    then list your repo's
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    then do a dup with packman
    Code:
    sudo zypper dup --from <insert packmans # you got from above>
    then just install simplescreenrecorder
    Code:
    sudo zypper in simplescreenrecorder
    you don't need to download individual files zypper will do it for you.

    ps. if you are confused ask, especially for the -dup stage as it is important to get multimedia working.

    edit.
    first check and see if you have packman run
    zypper lr -d and see what repo's you currently have, if you already have packman there's no need to add it twice.
    edit #2
    as it seams there is a simplescreenrecorder package in the main repo when installing it's best to use the --from switch
    Code:
    sudo zypper in simplescreenrecorder --from <inser packman's #>

    Is there any reason you don't want to just add the packman repo
    with zypper or yast, and then let the package management tool take
    care of the dependencies??

    I can't tell you much about the yast method, But with zypper I think it's
    like this:
    {note, happen to be running antiX at moment, so most of this is from memory}

    Code:
    zypper ar http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_13.2/ Packman
    {But check the URL to be sure I got it right}

    It's a good idea to refresh the repos with

    Code:
    zypper ref
    Then check for available versions with

    Code:
    zypper se simplescreenrecorder
    get detailed info on the "exact" packagename {from the search command output}

    Code:
    zypper if packagename
    and install it with dependencies handled via

    Code:
    zypper in packagename

    I got it installed! Thanks! Unbeknownst to me, the Packman thingy was not installed. Once it was installed, I could install the SimpleScreenRecorder, pretty easily. I'm new so I'm clueless and am just fumbling around trying to figure out OpenSuse.


    By the way...I mistyped...I have an x86_64 framework. It is in fact, a 64-bit system.
