What software do you guys use?

I know that Darren is planning to do a behind the scenes at some point (all of the cool content they keep coming up with keeps pushing it back), but maybe you could satisfy my curiosity (and other people's I'm sure) by telling us what hardware/software you use to create the show. I have seen other vidcasts that use the mac stuff, but I know that Darren uses PC-based software for Hak.5 and I would love to know what it is.

On that topic - does anyone know of good screen capture software for Linux? Camtasia studio rocks for the PC, but if you are trying to do Linux live screen captures, is there something out there that can do it?

I am planning to start my own vidcast in the next few months and would like to be able to demo Linux utis as well as windows ones and would prefer not to have to just focus a vid camera on an LCD panel to do the screen caps

Linux is classed as PC. Not being a Linux user myself I wouldn't know...

P.S. Sorry this pic just had to be posted... I haven't found anywhere else to use it yet.

Well, I'm not sure if this is an industry standard but a group of people have dubbed what you want to do as screencasting (follow the link for more software). You've got a couple of ways you can do this.

1. Run VMware, QEMU, or some other emulation program and capture the environment using Windows software.

2. Run TightVNC or some other remote desktop program and capture the environment using Windows software.

3. Run Wink, Xvidcap, or some other native application and capture the environment or window natively.

4. Figure out how to do X11 forwarding from your Linux system to your Windows system (I use PuTTY, OpenSSH, and Xming) and capture the X11 window using Windows software.

I am planning to start my own vidcast in the next few months and would like to be able to demo Linux utis as well as windows ones and would prefer not to have to just focus a vid camera on an LCD panel to do the screen caps

Make sure to let us know when it's out. It's always good to have more good content to watch.

If all else fails, you could spend a few bucks on a VGA to composite/s video connector or set up TV out in Linux (nvidia ftw), output it to VCR or some other recording device and use that. That'd also let you show bootsplash, various console apps in the console, and bootup/shut down sequences.
