How To ScreenCast your Desktop on Linux

How To ScreenCast your Desktop on Linux

After installing your Screencasting software such as KazamVokoscreen, and  SimpleScreenRecorder (I recommend the last one), install Cheese or guvcview to show the webcam window.

I recommend to install Mplayer instead of the two because you can hide borders and chose the width and the height of your taste. With the following commands you can enable a Webcam Windows on your desktop for your screencast.

mplayer -tv driver=v4l2:width=322:height=242:device=­/dev/video1 -vo xv tv:// -geometry "99%:90%" -noborder -ontop

mplayer -tv driver=v4l2:width=322:height=242: -vo xv tv:// -geometry "99%:90%" -noborder -ontop
