vncrec -h for list of available options.
To stop recording send
SIGINT (press ^C).
You can also use
VNCRec::Recorder class in your ruby code.
require 'vncrec' r = VNCRec::Recorder.new(filename: "myvncsession.mp4") r.run # loop do # sleep 100 # end

you can specify encoder you want by passing .mp4 or .flv, etc. If no filename
vncrec assumes raw. There is also a way to
record raw video by specifying filename with extension .raw. This way FFmpeg is
NOTE: you should use avconv (from libav-tools) on some debian systems. Please, make
a symlink, e.g.
ln -s /usr/bin/avconv /usr/bin/ffmpeg.
