There is this:

It is a gnome shell extension. It is made available via an icon on the top tool bar (at least in my case). I found it pretty easy to figure out.

There is also

recordmydesktop (in the official Fedora repository), which can record both video and audio (see )

and from the rpmfusion repository:

You can give OBS Studio a try. You will need 3rd party repos installed ( rpmfusion or uniterpms ) and run in the terminal:

sudo dnf install obs-studio

Gnome has a build-in functionality to take a screencast - for basic functionality no additional software or extension are needed.

All you need to do to start the screencast is pressing Ctrl+Alt+Shift+r. You will see a little red dot appearing in the panel next to your other indicators. The video will be saved in ~/Videos/ in the webm format.

Stop the screencast with the same shortcut.

Additional information can be found on the corresponding wiki page.

Good tools but there are a limitation about the 100 seconds to recording.

Best regards, Daniel
