Hi Set,

I just gave recordmydesktop (on Ubuntu Studio Xenial in Vbox) a spin for the first time ever. The recordings worked fine for me, although I did not attempt to record audio, or encode on the fly. I just hit record straight away without changing any settings. The saved file plays fine when opened in Parole.

Are there any specific steps you use to reproduce the bug?
