    Universal screen recorder powered by GStreamer

    Installation

    sudo npm install -g gst-rec
    

    Requires GStreamer-1.0 with gst-launch-1.0 binary and following GStreamer1 plugins: base, good, bad, ugly.

    Usage

    The application is intended for use from terminal with gst-rec command.

    With default configuration gst-rec will record desktop and save it to /tmp directory. Default configuration can be overwritten by ~/.config/gst-rec.json config file.

    Examples

    # Record 25 fps video and scale it to HD resolution:
    gst-rec --video width=1280,height=720,fps=25,scaling=true
    
    # Change encoding preset, video container, output file location and set custom filename:
    gst-rec --preset ultrafast --format mp4 --file 'dir=/my/custom/path,name=My Awesome Recording'
    
    # Record desktop with audio from pulseaudio sink:
    gst-rec --audio device=alsa_output.pci-0000_00_01.1.hdmi-stereo.monitor
    
    # Show list of system audio devices:
    gst-rec --list-audio-devices
    
    # Record to `~/Videos` directory as MP4 file with AAC audio from dev0:
    gst-rec --audio device=dev0,encoder=faac --format mp4 --file dir=~/Videos
    
    # Run GStreamer tcp server to allow connecting from multiple devices:
    gst-rec --output server --server host=127.0.0.1,port=8080
    
    # Create http server in addition to tcp server for devices that only support it:
    gst-rec --output server --server port=8080 --http-port 8081
    
    # Send scaled video output to `stdout` and receive it through `ffplay`:
    gst-rec --video width=960,height=540,fps=30,scaling=true -o - | ffplay -fflags nobuffer -
    
    # Run with default options, ignoring custom config file:
    gst-rec --ignore-config
    
    # Stream desktop to Chromecast using `castnow`:
    gst-rec -o - | castnow --quiet -
    
    # Stream desktop with audio to Chromecast:
    gst-rec --audio device=dev0,encoder=lamemp3enc -o - | castnow --quiet -
    
    # Alter default configuration and display it in JSON format (can be placed in config file):
    gst-rec --preset superfast --video width=1280,height=720,fps=25,scaling=true --show-config
    
    # Create new config file with default values:
    gst-rec --ignore-config --show-config > ~/.config/gst-rec.json
    

    Run gst-rec --help for a list of all available options.
