How do I do a Lets Play in Linux?

I have never done a lets play, even in Windows. I hear you HAVE to get FRAPS, is there an open equivalent in Linux? If not, could I run it in Wine?

TY in advance.

Re: How do I do a Lets Play in Linux?

FRAPS is according to my understand a screen recording software, and i have no idea how that is required to play a game.
There are a bunch of screen/Desktop recorders, but how wel they work with games or even wine... idk.

* recordmydesktop
* istanbul

and some others

A Let's Play...well I'm really not good at describing thing, so here.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JifTQCy0Jq0
Here's a guy that posts let's plays all the time and this is one of his funnier ones. I play the same shooter game and I want to do a Let's Play on the sequel Jedi Academy.

Watch the video all the way through.

Ctrl+shift+alt+r does the trick...for now.

That brings up another topic: DosBox is really annoying with Dark Forces. It will capture the mouse (normal) then will play normally, then when I take my cursor out of DosBox to do something else or when I quit DosBox, I can either only control window borders or the window's contents, it seems to be random which one.

And yes, Necroscope86 does have a Dark Forces 2 Let's Play.

Will it record audio from a microphone and the audio output at the same time?
