    Screen Recorder (Screenshot and Video)


    For work I use was using a program called CloudApp.

    It does a selection (drag to select area) where I can either record or take screenshot (with keyboard shortcut). It then would upload and provide me a URL.

    Sadly this program isn’t available yet. So I need to drop in a video/image into the CloudApp site. To do that I still need a program that can record your screen as well as take a screenshot (by selection).

    I know of a few that does one or the other, but would like one that does both?

    Any ideas/suggestions?

    Nothing eh. Dang, that isn’t good.

    I wish I knew how to code, I’d do it myself lol

    @noobertroon Hi! for screenshots i use shutter, and lightshot (if you’re willing to use playonlinux, lightshot is the best)
    I never tried anything for videos, i’d also be interested in knowing a tool for that…

    Thanks, using Cinnamon currently.

    That also does not look to do selections, at least not for video which I do need.

    they are a lot of tools for it if you want something with a gui:

    yaourt -S kazam

    Thanks for that. That is the one I am currently using. It does video and screenshots but its broken on Cinnamon (menu appears top left) and sadly does not provide a way to upload and get a link.

    That I can live with for the time being. The problem with Kazam is there are no keyboard shortcuts to do it. But I think Kazam is going to be the best option right now.

    I’ll make sure to check some of those out (already did a few) but I don’t think you are reading my requirements.

    I appreciate the suggestions but I don’t just need a screen recorder, or a screenshot app.

    • takes both video and screenshots
    • does a selection by mouse of what to record
    • offers keyboard shortcuts to do it
    • uploads or offers a way to upload and provides link

    So I only asked here to see if it was possible as I feel it isn’t really, not with those requirements. Kazam comes the closest so far.

    RecordItNow seems to have most of what you want…

    Will have to take a look, that was one I didn’t look at yet.

    Though, does it not require KDE? I have cinnamon…

    @noobertroon have some deps from kde but not much, will work inside cinnamon
