Thanks to Tibesti, creating screencasts doesn’t have to be a chore. This tiny utility lets you record desktop activity with a minimum of effort. Installing Tibesti on Ubuntu is a simple three-command affair:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ackondro/tibesti
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tibesti
Tibesti is designed to be as straightforward in use as possible. The main window provides access to the most important settings, including output format, quality, and recording mode. In addition to OGG, Tibesti supports the WebM, AVI, and H.264 formats, and the utility can capture both video and audio.
