Screen/window recording for Plan 9. WIP.

Currently wrec records one input (as /dev/screen or /dev/wsys/X/window) as an animated gif at a specific FPS.

There are some challenges hence WIP:

  • currently mouse pointer isn't visible
  • mouse button presses aren't shown
  • key presses aren't shown
  • no sound is recorded
  • it would be nice to record a stream as a mov container with qtrle for video track and something for the audio track

It seems like the only way to do some of these things without patching rio is to provide it with wrec's own mouse and keyboard files that are filters on top of kernel's device files.


Clone, run mk install.
