One that works well and is just a front end to ffmpeg is QX11Grab

You can get the git version with

git clone git://

It says dbus 1.4.12 is required but it isn't available in Fedora so I changed CMakeLists.txt like this:


It built and runs fine, only the icons on the interface doesn't show ;-p I didn't write to the author because my PC is old and I can't record much anyway but it would be worth fixing this little issue for Fedora as it's a simple and effective app.
