Gamecaster Updated for Ubuntu 12.10


Gamecaster is a graphical frontend for open source project glc. It can capture real time footage of any Linux game that uses ALSA for sound and OpenGL for drawing.

Gamecaster has following features:
  • Capture HD video of Linux games that use OpenGL acceleration
  • Select a game binary or choose one of your installed games to start recording
  • Playback a .glc file
  • Encode a captured .glc file into webm video format
  • Options to change capture hotkey, video bitrate and number of CPU threads
  • Ubuntu indicator support
I have updated Gamecaster for both Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10. It includes an important bugfix that will prevent Gamecaster from crashing on launch if you use any other language than English on your desktop.

Check out a video I recorded a while back:


To install Gamecaster on Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10, run the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:niteshgupta16/gamecaster-stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gamecaster

You can get source code tarball from here.

I didn't get much time to work on Gamecaster but I plan to update it with couple of new features. If you find any issue with current release of Gamecaster, report them on Launchpad.
