byzanz-record [options] FILENAME DESCRIPTION
Byzanz records your desktop session to an animated GIF. You can record your entire screen, a single window, or an arbitrary region. byzanz-record allows you to make recordings from the command line. Graphical users may want to use the panel applet instead. OPTIONS

After byzanz-record is finished, the recording is written to FILENAME. The format is determined by the filename extension. The following formats are supported: gif Record to an animated GIF image. Use this if you want to record a mostly static screen with a limited amount of colors, such as using a file manager or an office application. This is the default and will be used if an unrecognized extension is used. ogg, ogv Record to an Ogg Theora video. This format supports audio. Use this if you want to record dynamic contents, such as video playback. flv Record to a Flash Screen video. This recording method is lossless. Use it if you want to postprocess the file in other applications. byzanz Record to Byzanz' internal debugging format. This is useful for benchmarking Byzanz or if you want to convert the recording to mul- tiple formats later. You can use byzanz-playback(1) to convert the file. SEE ALSO
