Entering the JIRA database values plugin in the Atlassian codegeist competition

Posted at — May 3, 2011

I just entered my JIRA Database Values Plugin in the Atlassian Codegeist competition. You can view my entry here: http://codegeist.atlassian.com/entry/167349

I uploaded a video with it to make it more visual. I was quite surprised to find it so easy to do on my Ubuntu (just updated to 11.04).

  1. Installed recordMyDesktop to do the actual screencast recording:

    sudo apt-get install gtk-recordmydesktop

    This will install a program shortcut called 'Desktop recorder'. Once running, there is a handy systray icon to start and stop the recording.

  2. Installed mencoder and used this command line to convert the .ogv file to xvid:

    mencoder out.ogv -ovc xvid -xvidencopts pass=1 -o jdvp.avi

That is it!

Don’t forget to vote for my entry!

PS: Is there anybody who knows a free program running on Ubuntu that allows to add text overlays in the video?
