Subject [jira] [Created] (GUACAMOLE-4) Implement session recording
Date Thu, 19 May 2016 01:58:12 GMT
Michael Jumper created GUACAMOLE-4:

             Summary: Implement session recording
                 Key: GUACAMOLE-4
             Project: Guacamole
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: guacamole-server, RDP, SSH, Telnet, VNC
            Reporter: Michael Jumper
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 0.9.10-incubating

*This description of this issue was copied from [GUAC-236|],
an issue in the JIRA instance used by the Guacamole project prior to its acceptance into the
Apache Incubator.*

Comments, attachments, related issues, and history from prior to acceptance *have not been
copied* and can be found instead at the original issue.

-Once screen sharing work has been completed, Guacamole should have the foundation necessary
to support recording of a shared screen.-

As originally stated in a [forum post|],
the only mechanism for this previously was to record raw Guacamole protocol data:
If you want to make a video of a Guacamole session, the best way would be to record the Guacamole
protocol between guacd and the web application (along with timing information), and translate
that into video.

As mentioned in comments on this issue, mechanisms exist for recording VNC directly as well,
but as these will involve additional VNC connections (and thus more bandwidth), handling the
duplication of connections within guacd would be more efficient. This is, in fact, one of
the main driving forces behind screen sharing at the Guacamole level.
