[TOOLS] Simple Screen Recorder

Unread postby meveric » Tue Jul 12, 2016 3:16 pm

Simple Screen Recorder is a program written by Maarten Baert http://www.maartenbaert.be/simplescreenrecorder/

It allows you to easily record your Desktop and all programs running on it (including games).
It uses ffmpeg to do so which means it runs on software encoding and therefore run on all platforms including ODROIDs.

I tried this application on the ODROID XU3 (XU4) and it's working very good, especially in 720p.
If you want to do a presentation of your work on your ODROID but lack a Gaming recording device for over $100 (like me) this is the way to go. You can record everything you do on the screen including playing 3D games.

As usual you can install it from my repository jessie/main package list with:
Code: Select all
apt-get install ssr-odroid

You can find the sources on Maarten Baert's github page if you're interested in it: https://github.com/MaartenBaert/ssr/
Donate to support my work on the ODROID GameStation Turbo Image for U2/U3 XU3/XU4 X2 X C1 as well as many other releases.
Check out the Games and Emulators section to find some of my work or check the files in my repository to find the software i build for ODROIDs.
If you want to add my repository to your image read my HOWTO integrate my repo into your image.

This one's a keeper, the purpleness is FFMPEG recording was making me blue. There's another that was straight from the debian repo that also worked but it was not optimized for high resolutions. Thanks!

I'm running Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS on an Odroid XU4. I'm updated/upgraded except for
Code: Select all
chromium-browser, chromium-browser-l10n, chromium-chromedriver, chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra

but I'm getting the following errors when I run
Code: Select all
sudo apt install ssr-odroid

Code: Select all
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 ssr-odroid : Depends: libgl-odroid but it is not installable
              Depends: libglues-odroid but it is not installable
              Depends: libavcodec56 (>= 10:2.6.9) but it is not installable

              Depends: libswscale3 (>= 10:2.6.9) but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

is chromium the package that is holding this back?

No, it's because it's packaged for debian. See if you can find the native ubuntu version
