Vokoscreen is a relatively new screencasting application for Ubuntu/Linux. Aside from recording your desktop, the application allows you to perform a handful of screencasting-related actions such as using the webam, capturing sound (i.e. using the mic), zooming and so on.

Among Vokoscreen features are:
  • Recording actions (Star, stop, pause)
  • Tabbed GUI
  • Magnifying glass (i.e. Zoom)
  • Selection options (e.g. Fullscreen, window, free selection)
  • Webcam/Mic support
  • Video codecs (Mpeg4 & H264)
  • Multiple video formats (Mkv or Avi)
