Tibesti is another screen recording tool in Ubuntu Linux, compare to the classical Xvidcap recorder, it is simple and easy-to-use.

Record your desktop, speaker output and microphone at once, then output it to WebM, Ogg, or Matroska files. If you have the necessary codecs, you can even output to an AVI file or Matroska and h264. Control the size of the capture area, get a visual countdown to the start of recording, or just record a screencast of your favorite game. This is Tibesti Screencaster.
