    Phoronix: Ubuntu's Mir Works Towards Screen-Casting Support

    Mir, the display server currently powering Ubuntu Touch and will be on the desktop side with Ubuntu 14.10, is working on its screen-casting support...

    Sounds like a nice feature to have built natively into Mir itself.

      I hope they include or expose the ability to capture screen video and audio(assocaited with that screen), so Mir can have a built in FRAPs or have a FRAPS made for it easily.

        I really hope Mir-grabbing support can be written for FFmpeg. It would be nice to record a OpenGL games and applications.

          screencasting in display server? shouldn't this be in compositor? both wayland and mir already treat clients like sinks if i understand correctly, which would also mean you could enable screencasting in any compositor simply by using infrastructure they work on

            Not if you want to support casting full-screen apps.

              NSA

              Under the current NSA-infiltrated world, are there safety measures that stop institutions such as the NSA from using such recording features to spy on computers?

                It's called a firewall and good safety measures.

                  Have you seen the presentations on how fully the internet and many tools have been infiltrated?

                  a firewall is not enough and good security measures would involve checking that your computer case has not been compromised along with any wires, ports or connectors. Or any custom additions to the motherboard. Removing any wireless connectors and then not plugging it into the internet.

                  Even then chances are the system can be compromised.

                  The NSA slides promised that most technical equipment was compromised especially iphones which would be infiltrated "all the time, every time"
