#-------- FFMPEG Screencasting
# compile ffmpeg: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=786095
# proper screencast: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1392026
# Original Code:
ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -i hw:0,0 -f x11grab -r 30 -s $(xwininfo -root | grep 'geometry' | awk '{print $2;}') -i :0.0 -acodec pcm_s16le -vcodec libx264 -preset ultrafast -crf 0 -threads 0 -y screencast_out.mkv
# -y = will overwrite output file
#Note: if u have problems with preset errors,
# run 'x264 -h' look for supported presets and replace it, like
# ultrafast, superfast, fast ...etc
#Note 2: If you like to scale down your videos at the same time when recording
# add in for example
# -vf "scale=1280:720"
#============================================
# This is What i Use
# Using FFmpeg, fullscreen capture scaled down to 16:9(1280:720) for youtube upload
