Here's a youtube video.."I spent hours writing a guide on how to record a screencast, or record what is on the desktop, and convert it. I then found out that this was is much simpler and faster and doesn't even involve opening the commandline."In order to do this you need VLC and gtk-recordmydesktop. They are available in most distributions repositories. If you want to do this in Windows you will have to use a screen recording program, but the VLC step is the same. I have had great success when using this, and hopefully you will too. As you can see I, I am running PCLinuxOS, but you can most likely accomplish the same thing in Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions. No worries. I also noticed that the video won't upload to metacafe in Linux. I found the best way to sidestep this is to install Firefox with WINE and upload it from there."If you are using Ubuntu you have to add the medibuntu repository. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu and install the ffmpeg packages. http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1194550/how_to_easily_record_the_screen_with_linux_and_convert_video/
