    Default Screen recording with java?

    Hey guys. I was just wondering, the Robot class has a method to take a screenshot of the screen, would it be feasible to use this to make a screen recording program? Or is there a better way in java? I really want my own screen recorder because I want to be able to change its functionality. I haven't found a screen recorder I like after searching for quite a while.. and it would be a fun project to try to make. I don't know how I would save the video file, but I'm sure there are libraries for that.

    Unfortunately this wouldn't really be feasible. I'm sure if you google the subject there are some third party libraries that would help.
