I am looking for an open source desktop recorder for Linux that will do the following:
1) allow me to preset a screen size, with hotkeys to prompt the recording window
2) allow me to drag on the desktop to set a recording window size on the fly
3) will save the files in a small format, with good (not best) quality, but with files that aren't huge. Snagit for windows is a good example of that, videos are only a few megabytes per minute.
Open Broadcaster Software will not work on my PC by the way, crashing for some reason.
