The Publicity Cabal has decided that it would be nice to record our
sprint review presentations.
We concluded that instead of recording whole sprint review call it would
be better to make
separate screencasts of the presented features. This approach makes each
shorter and noiseless.
I have made a few tests and making screencast is fairy simple on Fedora.
utility is already installed, I just installed GUI version
gtk-recordmydesktop. Then I looked at
for a couple of configuration
advices. I prefer to
use 25fps as it gives more fluid experience. The video file then grows
quite big though, so set it
based on the length of your presentation. Screencast I did has four
minutes and video file has
been around 70mb. Only tweak I had to do is to lower my mic sensitivity
to avoid background
After you record the screencast, It is possible to upload it as it is or
if you want to do more editing
you need to use some video editor (Avidemux). If the video file is too
large, you can use HandBrake to
compress/convert it. Make sure that compressed video is still watchable:)
Here is my Username/Password recovery screencast:
I will put this guide also to our wiki.
