Hi, Can anyone tell me how to record the simulation that I run on Gazebo and rviz? I am unable to find any documents suggesting the solution.

Ubuntu - 120.4 precise ROS - Groovy

I use package recordMyDesktop to record a simulation. If you check it on Ubuntu Software Center, you can find it out. Please look at this web.

As it is easy to download and install it, please try it!

Try Filmora Scrn or Joyoshare Screen Recorder. They can record almost all desktop activities in high quality. OBS is good as well, but sometimes I got black capture window issue.

You can use screen grabber utilities or run command line tool s like ffmpeg. Maximise the output you want to capture as these tool grab complete screen. I use following command:

ffmpeg  -f x11 grab -s <screen resolution> -r 25 -i 0.0 <output file name>

Screen resolution parameter  is display dependent e.g. xvga . Use ffmpeg man page for more information.

I am trying to install this - RecordingOpenGLAppsWithGLC. But I am not able to follow the instructions. It says After Building.. Now how do I build it?

I have not used it earlier. I use ffmpeg. Simply use the command which I mentioned. I have tested it a number of times.

ffmpeg can grab a specific area of the screen, not just the entire screen. It's quite a complex and long command line, though. I created an alias for it. I'm away from my Linux box or I'd paste it here.
