So I have been working on Kazam and I have decided to get a pre-alpha out there so that people can see what I am trying to do, maybe get interested, offer help, file bugs etc.
Bear in mind this is really just a pre-alpha, loads nof stuff is not working yet. At the moment, the start window is working (though video and audio can only be from screen and what is currently playing) the countdown window and indicator are also working, as well as the recording (though a dirty implementation) and the finished recording window (apart from the edit selector) is also working.
At the moment, Kazam is not really useful as it outputs a large lossless mkv file, that is not useful for uploading etc. But again this is a pre-alpha!
If you really want to download Kazam and have a look at it, please do the following:
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
bzr branch lp:kazam
This will open up the start window. From here, just press record (activate audio if you want), the countdown will start, the indicator will appear and once you finish the recording, you will have the option to save your screencast.
As you can see I would like to start getting help for this project, so if you wish to help, please have a look at the code, download and test as above, file bugs.. whatever! If you have any question, comment below, use Launchpad answers, contact me through Launchpad or find me on freenode (and471). I will be able to find something for you to do! 😀

(If you are going to re-blog this, all I ask is that you stress that it is a pre-alpha and that is isn’t really working for public use yet, only for developers 😀 )
