Kazam - ideal application for taking screenshots and video on ubuntu

Last update December 16, 2022 at 07:24 PM

Introducing a full-featured screen and video capture app ubuntu. This is Kazam.


When using full-time linux distribution , we encounter various problems which vary according to the pc characteristics of each person. One of the things that we realize over time is that there is no video capture application (screencast) by default. With all the free software that exists in the linux repositories, it is difficult to make a definitive choice to choose a complete capture software.

In this post, I will present the result of my research to save you time. The application I offer is Kazam. The linux distribution we are using here is ubuntu. The application is naturally available in all other distributions. See you below for details.
