Screen recording a KVM guest (preferably VISTA) session


#1

Hi,

Is there a good way to record KVM guest session into a video?

I tried the following approach; it worked with some issues, which are making the solution unusable. I tried to capture the video (using screen recorders like gtk-recmydesktop and VLC) while running VISTA guest in full-screen. The whole session is getting captured pretty good, except the BIOS screen and initial vista screen (green progress bar). I guess, screen recorders couldnt capture properly as KVM keeps on changing resolution while running BIOS and loading initial OS.

PS: I am running VISTA in KVM guest and the host is UBUNTU 8.04.

Thanks for the response,
