Pretty simple way to record a screencast. But i usually want to record them on xnest at 640x480. My dualscreen setup generates too big videos.

Maybe you would like to modify this script to add Support to launch a xephyr/xnest and record there at a given resolution. Also streaming support (icecast?) would be interesting.. So just piping output would work?

I dont know if youterm will come back anytime soon. All the source is out there and if you check it you will realize is a complete mess of perl, shellscript, python, awk, makefiles and C.

I would like to rewrite it in nodejs, single process to control everything and single language for everything.

What i missed in yt was the support for seeking the terminal script. Also.. I wanted to add support for this in the script viewer... But should be also done for the web.

Do we want real video in youterm? Isnt script records enought?
