Unfortunately, recordmydesktop is linux-only and I use Mac OS X. I
haven't found any port of recordmydesktop for OS X and none of the
other open source Mac options for screencasts seems to support OGG
file output. I once did an audio recording of Gregor Kiczales
( and someone converted it to OGG
format; however, he used a linux utility and I haven't found any good
OS X options for outputting OGG format audio or video.

I was playing around with vnc2swf
( to see whether I could use
that instead (it outputs screencasts in Flash swf format); however, it
only worked some of the time and audio syncing (with the video) was a
bit "problematic".
