A while ago I needed to screencast a terminal to a class of students in real-time. It turned out to be quite straightforward with screen(1) in multiuser mode.
Now I want to record screencasts and allow people to watch them later. I'm looking at recordmydesktop, but the innefficiency strikes me: I'm operating in text-only environment, there's no need to record every frame as a flat bitmap. Whatever codec I choose, the files will be huge and of low quality. What I need is something like script(1) on steroids: - accurately record the complete state of my terminal window at any given moment - store it as a succession of updates, each represented in a text-based format (as opposed to pixel-based) - record timings correctly - allow for a method to record speech in the background - allow for a method to play it all back in sync Has anyone heard about any tool which would help me achieve at least some of my requirements? _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
