    Default Ubuntu's Mir Works Towards Screen-Casting Support

    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.

    I'm not sure about Mir but Wayland calls for the compositor to be the display server. That was one of the big motivating factors behind Wayland: to have the display server to be transform aware of the windows so no unneeded hops between the thing doing the transforms and the thing serving the final image.
