VLC Tips and Notes

To record video/audio using the webcam in Ubuntu 15.04 (and on my computer):

  1. Go to Media → Open Capture Device
  2. Click on Capture Device tab
  3. Capture mode – set to Video camera
  4. Video device name – set to /dev/video0
  5. Audio device name
    1. to capture sound from the webcam, set to hw:2,0
    2. to capture sound from the headset, set to hw:3,0
  6. Video standard, left at 'undefined'
  7. Click on the down arrow button next to the Play radio button
  8. Click on Convert
    1. Display the output doesn't work for me, so leave unchecked
  9. Profile set to Video - Theora + Vorbis (OGG)
    1. I prefer open codecs, but this works too:
      1. Profile set to default: Video - H.264 + MP3 (MP4)
  10. Choose a Destination file (i.e., the name of your recording)
  11. Press Start and record
