Vokoscreen Is Incredible

Some time back I went on and on about a screen capture tool called Kazam, and up until now it seemed like the best. Now there is better, introducing vokoscreen

Today while I tinkered with an old game called YsFlightsimulator  trying to configure it in Wine on Linux, I decided to attempt a screen capture just to show how well it was running.

4 Captures later I was annoyed to find the choppiest and slowest captures I’d ever attempted. This isn’t my first barbecue, I know about setting frame rates and which formats to use… it was just no good.

So I started Googling for solutions and came across an article about Vokoscreen. I usually don’t put much stock in articles that sing the praises of one software over another unless there is some serious proof.

In this case a you tube video taken in a fairly graphically intensive demonstration on someone’s Linux desktop gave me enough enough evidence to try it.

I’m getting cynical in my old age as I expected nearly identical results.

I was floored. The first test came out crystal clear, and I’m posting that video right here.

I went ahead and tossed that video into kdenlive to make a quick tutorial just to show that apparently even on the first take it was glitch-less and smooth.

This will be optimal for most video tutorials.

If you do screen captures in Linux, grab Vokoscreen.

In a related note yes YsFlightsimulator is available for windows and if you are running a recent wine version grab it and run cpu rendered mode for a quick no muss no fuss flight sim. (Pay attention as it installs, and ignore the recommended settings that don’t place the cpu rendered mode on the desktop.)

(If you find the trick to getting it to run in the opengl or direct3d modes let me know!) I do suspect it’s a direct x issue.

YsFlightSimulator available here.

  5. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
