  1. the screen
  2. my voice via my laptop microphone
  3. my face via my laptop camera

What I am looking for two screen. One is the main screen which capture the desktop, which is my PowerPoint. and the another screen is my face . which its place is on top the of main screen and smaller than it.

I use Ubuntu 14.04

  • Where should the video streams appear? VLC media player is capable of recording the webcam, the screen and the microphone. But it cannot record two video inputs at the same time (that would be illogical). However, you could open two VLC instances.
