SimpleScreenRecorder: a powerful application to record the screen in Linux

SimpleScreenRecorder is an application based on the QT for screen recording on Linux , and even though the name tells that it is simple (simple) but it is not so! It comes with features more than other similar applications , it is very easy to use, and its default settings are suitable enough to make you not need to change them .

You can record the entire screen , ( with support for multi-screen multi-monitor) as it can track the mouse , and applications with OpenGL ( you can use it to record games) .

You will notice that the user interface is easy and simple which enables you to choose the video input, and choose whether you want to record your mouse , or if you want to record Microphone , or adjust the frame rate .

- Features of the application :

Recording the entire screen or part of it, and recording games directly ( like Fraps program in Windows).
Synchronize audio and video correctly.
Faster than ffmpeg / avconv and VLC.
Reduce the video frame rate if your computer is too slow .
Smoother in video and better performance on computers with multiple processors , where the small delays that occur in the video in any of its components during the recording does not work on other components of a slowdown .
show registration Statistics  ( file size, transfer rate , the total time of registration , the actual frame rate , etc. .. )
Possibility to show the preview during recording.
And more ...

 Please note that the property of recording that supports OpenGL still in developed stage, so it may not behave nicely.
