When I was in Brazil last, there was some talk about making outreach
videos; perhaps this is a good option for an open source tool!

Found a nice screencasting application for ubuntu - eidete

Though the gnome 3 has its inbuilt screen recording app using
it can record only video, not the audio.

I was looking for a decent screenrecorder with voice.

gtk-recordmydesktop is good. But, we have to configure the parameters to
get video without any scattering effects.

Tried eidete. It is so good. Video is stored as webm format. video/audio
quality is fine.

Check more about it here:

Recorded a sample screencast - "intro to gnome 3" in Tamil.
check it here.

Now, you can create screencasts easily with Eidete.
