Record in-game
Long time no post, forums.

Does anyone know of screen capturing software (preferable for ubuntu or linux in general) that would be suited for xonotic videos?

the SOURCE engine has a built in recording system where you input "record" (or something) into the console and it begins recording, does xonotic have something similar?

RE: Record in-game
Also, ffmpeg can do screen recording on Linux (w/ X11).

RE: Record in-game
Why would you use that! Unless you want to capture the window borders or other parts of your OS, there's no point in not using the builtin video recorder, which works along with the engine to produce consistent framerate and quality.
