Background

Screencast is a video screen capture utility. It is based on Recordmydesktop by John Varouhakis. It captures the screen to a video file which is in Ogg-Theora-Vorbis file format.

Where to get it

Status

It is thought to be buggy but the following patch has allowed video to be saved to the Journal. Open Terminal and change to directory /home/olpc/Activities/Screencast.activity and replace the file pippy_app.py with this file (renamed to pippy_app.py)

(it would be a good idea to backup the existing file first, eg mv pippy_app.py pippy_app.bak)
