Infobyte: How I record my desktop

I installed xvidcap for ubuntu, and then used the terminal version with the following command:

xvidcap --file filename.mpeg --fps 15 --cap_geometry 1680x1050+0+0 --rescale 25 --time 200.0 --start_no 0 --continue yes --gui no --auto

That will capture 200 seconds of video at fullscreen 1680x1050 resolution, but scaled down 25 percent, with 15 frames per second.

Hope this helps prospective videocasters!
