Kazam is another great screen recorder. It's graphical, easy to use, and has a ton of features.

To install it:

1) Open a terminal (click on the raspberry icon in the task bar, go down to Accessories, and then click on Terminal)

2) Type in sudo apt-get update then sudo apt-get install kazam

3) To run it, you can launch it from the taskbar (you'll find it under the raspberry icon in a submenu) or type in kazam from the terminal.

    I follow steps that you make it above, and I got an error like this: pi@raspberrypi:~ $ kazam /usr/bin/kazam:32: PyGIWarning: Gtk was imported without specifying a version first. Use gi.require_version('Gtk', '3.0') before import to ensure that the right version gets loaded. @user96931

recordMyDesktop is here for you. It captures what you are watching on the screen and also saves all audio input/output.

You can use it by the terminal and also it has a GUI like the image below:

enter image description here

Update repository:

sudo apt-get update

Install the package:

sudo apt-get install recordmydesktop

Start recording/capturing:

recordmydesktop myCapture.ogv

To stop the process hit Ctrl + C and then it will save a .ogv file in the current path.

More configuration on man page of this package.

  • That didn't work well for me. Although I was able to record the screen, the video ended up with a lot of pink added, not with the actual screen colors... also, I had to disable sound, because the sound card was not recognized... Commented Oct 29, 2020 at 15:08

Vokoscreen works well on Raspberry Pi OS.

sudo apt install vokoscreen

VLC was not able to play the default format MKV recordings Vokoscreen makes for me, but you can play them with ffplay (part of FFmpeg):

ffplay -i ~/Videos/screencast.mkv
