Call for testing: SimpleScreenRecorder 0.3.11

I would like to announce a call of testing for the 0.3.11 version of the unofficial SimpleScreenRecorder snap. SimpleScreenRecorder is a feature-rich screen recorder.

How to install

Get it from the Snap Store

or, in a terminal:

# Install the snap #
sudo snap install --channel=beta simplescreenrecorder-brlin

# Connect the snap to optional security confinement interfaces #
## To allow access to ALSA devices ##
sudo snap install core
sudo snap connect simplescreenrecorder-brlin:alsa

# Launch the application #

What to test

  • Can you properly launch the application?
  • Can you properly record a video using the application?
  • (If you have a non AMD64 device) can you run the application without issue on non-AMD64 architecture devices?
  • Do you notice any problems during running the application?

How to contribute

Here’s the source repository of the snap:

Please report any issues regarding the use of the snap to the snap’s issue tracker:


I just installed the snap on Ubuntu 18.10 and had no issues, the snap installed correctly, I recorded a couple of videos and watched them after.

Works fine here in Ubuntu Budgie 18.10. Recorded a couple of videoes and played back with no problems using the default settings. I did not get any sound however, coz I’m using pulseaudio and not alsa. Dunno if you can connect pulseaudio interface to the snap to get it working?

The pulseaudio interface is connected by default. Can you record audio normally with other pulseaudio applications?

Did some more testing. When I selected source: “monitor of built-in audio digital stereo (IEC958)” from the dropdown, the sound recording worked perfectly! :+1:

That rather looks like a bug as it is actually a virtual monitor device of an audio output device.


Thanks for adding unofficial snap, and marking it as unofficial. I appreciate that some have time to package snaps.

I just noticed, that there is video complaining about multiple versions of unofficial snaps, mentioning simplescreenrecorder as an example, but without reporting about that at forum. But when I looked, there were only 2 old versions of simplescreenrecorder snap. That is not so many.
