Using Gnome’s screen recording tool
Gnome 3 has a built-in screen recording functionality. To start, press
Alt+Ctrl+Shift+R and the recording will start. There should be a red icon on the top right message tray of your screen. To stop recording, press the red icon or press
The video file will be in webm format and saved in the Video directory on your home directory.
Increase the duration of screencast videos
The screen recording functionality has a maximum length limit which is just 30 seconds long by default. The default length isn’t ideal if you plan to make a lengthy video. Good news is that it is possible to increase the duration manually. Modify the following gsettings string in command like using the
gsettings command line tool as follows
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys max-screencast-length 600
600 value with the number of seconds you want.
