Silentcast is a graphical tool for recording your Linux desktop in an animated gif. By providing an easy-to-follow wizard, it makes recording easier.
With Silentcast, you can:
- Record screencasts in gif, webm, mp4
- Record fullscreen, a select window, or a select area.
- Auto-resize selected window to a given Width and Height.
After you clicking Stop icon on System Tray, a dialog pops-up and asks you whether to continue converting images to GIF or not.
