How to Install Green Recorder on Ubuntu and other Linux Derivatives

Screen Recorder is an essential productivity tool to record your screen. There are several screen recorder apps for Linux that work well. But, at present, Green Recorder will provide you some great features which will blow your mind. It is a simple screen recorder app that supports Xorg as well as Wayland – Gnome Session. It’s built on top of Python, GTK+ 3, and ffmpeg.

However, today I am here to share the great features of Green Recorder and its Installations process on Ubuntu. So, first, let’s see what has been included in Green Recorder Latest Version.

Green Recorder Features:

  • Green Recorder supports GIF format now, which means recording will be 10x better than the standard ffmpeg recording with GIF format at all.
  • It offers you to edit the default value from the preference settings.
  • You can now edit the pipeline from the preference menu and other things.
  • It offers you to choose the audio input source.
  • Improved graphical user interface.
  • Codes are much more precise and simpler.
  • Included play button to record video easily.
