A feature-rich screen recorder

SimpleScreenRecorder is a feature-rich screen recorder that supports X11 and OpenGL. It has a Qt-based graphical user interface. It can record the entire screen or part of it, or record OpenGL applications directly(currently not supported in snap distribution). The recording can be paused and resumed at any time. Many different file formats and codecs are supported.

Key features

  • Synchronizes audio and video properly.
  • Reduces the video frame rate if your computer is too slow.
  • Fully multithreaded: small delays in any of the components will never block the other components, resulting is smoother video and better performance on computers with multiple processors.
  • Can also do live streaming (experimental).

Known issue

Currently OpenGL recording is not supported by this build due to the confinement and library separation nature of snap apps.


This is NOT an official SimpleScreenRecorder distribution, refer [the snap's issue tracker]( for support.
