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


Application Options:
-a, --audio
Record audio from the default input device. This only works if the output format
supports it and will otherwise cause an error.

-c, --cursor
Record mouse cursor

-d, --duration=SECS
Duration of animation (default: 10 seconds)

-e, --exec=COMMAND
Instead of specifying the duration of the animation, execute the given COMMAND and
record until the command exits. This is useful both for benchmarking and to use
more complex ways to stop the recording, like writing scripts that listen on dbus.

After byzanz-record is finished, the recording is written to FILENAME. The format is
determined by the filename extension. The following formats are supported:

byzanz 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.

flv Record to a Flash Screen video. This recording method is lossless. Use it if you
want to postprocess the file in other applications.

gif 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

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.

webm Record to a WebM video. This format consists of VP8 video and Vorbis audio streams.
