So why do it in real time? First record all frames, then encode them to a video.and b) the computational cost of encoding high resolution video in real time.
Anyway, it was just a question.
Not many people have that much hard drive space, and you're going to really be saturating your IO just to save it all which could add performance problems of it's own. It's definitely too large to just store in RAM.

There's something I don't quite get here. Why is a simple task of screen recording so difficult on linux and everyday simple and effortless task on osx/windows?
