Does anyone have a guide for screencasting Supercollider/sonic-pi sets on Linux?

@aadil I've used OBS for audio+video capture (supports both full screen and single-window in X, don't know about Wayland) with JACK to connect from audio things on Linux. Pretty sure SC uses JACK, not sure about sonic-pi (does sonic-pi use SC underneath?).

Debian package is `obs-studio` with executable `obs`.

@mathr so do I just add jack as an audio source in OBS?

@aadil yes and personally i rename it to OBS instead of "JACK input client" which is too generic for my taste (it's what appears in eg qjackctl patch bay)

@aadil
Simplescreenrecorder captures the desktop and it has an option to capture jack audio output, just make a preset and recall it, i use it a lot with tidalcycles. If you get to rec a multicam setup, OBS does it great

@pierstu Thanks for the tip! Will definitely check it out since I'm having issues with OBS

@aadil
Did you check your libavcodec and ffmpeg settings? Extra codecs maybe?
I use stock h264 with mp4 output, audio is 320 kbps aac
