sudo apt-get install xvidcap
2. After the installation is complete, click on ‘Menu>Sound & Video>XVidCap Screen Capture’ to start the application.
3. After the application has started, drag the red rectangle around the screen area you want to capture in the video and click ‘Start recording’. Now you can proceed with the actions that you want to be captured in the video.
