Marc found this tool and recommended it to Advait (who is writing this). We have used this instead of glc to capture videos from rviz.


  • better quality and color in the videos


  • entire desktop gets recorded, so will need a decent video editor


  • sudo apt-get install gtk-recordmydesktop


  • gtk-recordMyDesktop
    • follow the instructions on the gui, you might want to change location where the file is saved etc.
  • The saved video file is an ogv. Convert to something else using mencoder:
    • mencoder video.ogv -ovc xvid -xvidencopts pass=1 -o video.avi
