Select area to record for screencasts instead of whole screen
gnome-screencast will record the whole screen when pressing
Shift + Alt + R. Instead I'd like to be able to select a specific area of the screen to record.
How would you like it to work
Instead of recording immediately, the
Shift + Alt + R hotkey should overlay a rectangle over the screen. The rectangle should be maximized by default. By dragging the corners or the edges, the user should be able to resize and position the are that will be recorded. If all is looking good, the user can click the button in the center of the selected area to start recording.
Relevant links, screenshots, screencasts etc.
