What Should You Use, Kazam, Simple Screen Recorder or Vokoscreen for Screencast in Ubuntu/Linux?

Top 3 Screen Recorder for Ubuntu/Linux:

I tried all Kazamm, Simple Screen Recorder and Vokoscreen and this is what I would recommend:



If you would want to go with a simple solution then go for Kazam. You simply install the software and sart using it without having to be bothered about much customizations.

To Install Kazam: 

You can install it from the Software Center by checking this link: Download Kazam.




SimpleScreenRecorder has much more features and customization compared to Kazam. For detailed configuration option for SimpleScreenRecorder, you may check my other post: SimpleScreenRecorder Configuration.

To install SimpleScreenRecorder:

 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:maarten-baert/simplescreenrecorder  
 sudo apt-get update  
 sudo apt-get install simplescreenrecorder  
 # if you want to record 32-bit OpenGL applications on a 64-bit system:  
 sudo apt-get install simplescreenrecorder-lib:i386  

Note for Audio setting: If you are  using a microphone, then please select the option: 'Built-in Audio Analogue Stereo' as shown in the image below.



Vikoscreen has similar features as SimpleScreenRecorder. The one feature it stands out from both of the above screen-recorders is it's Webcam option. If you select the 'Webcam' option then you can enable your webcam and simultaneously record yourself along with your screencast.

Note for Audio setting: Same as above.
