Get dimensions (pixels location) of the window that you want to capture, for screen-casting remote desktop , screen recording Desktop capture screen-capture with:
sleep 5 && ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 1 -i pulse -f x11grab -r 10 -s 1024x720 -i :0.0 -acodec pcm_s16le -vcodec libx264 -preset ultrafast -crf 0 -threads 0 output-file1.mkv
If Pulse audio is super-ceding ALSA, try:
If top-left bound (corner) of the window (area / region) that you want captured/recorded is not 0,0 (top-most edge of display server Desktop, then add:
to specify the left and top co-ordinate locations of the top-left of the window.
- TIP: Disable your screen saver. That -will- interfere with the video that is captured. This is not semantic, instead it captures pixels (raster).

When using mkisofs don't forget to include "

- RIP 13.7 has all of the optical disc open-source software listed below, except libcdio ("cd-info", in particular).
libCDio from GNU
offers (at least one) tool that can query (report) stats status state of optical media (CD-Rs, DVD+Rs)
libcdio-utils: sample applications based on the CDIO libraries
This package contains a collection of small libcdio-based tools: * cd-drive show CD-ROM drive characteristics * cd-info show information about a CD or CD-image * cd-paranoia an audio CD ripper * cd-read read information from a CD or CD-image * cdda-player a simple curses-based audio CD player * iso-info show information about an ISO 9660 image * iso-read read portions of an ISO 9660 image * mmc-tool issue low-level commands to a CD drive
which, in turn 
cd-info may need
--dvd switch for DVD R media, of course. (never cd-rs, I assume)
cd-info --dvd --iso9660
isoinfo -d -i /mnt/image/2014may7.iso
- is like cd-info's
--iso9660switch. (well a combination of that and ...)
isoinfo -f -i /mnt/image/2014may7.iso
- to either role/mode/command (report '-d' primary volume Descriptor (info head about volume as a whole) or list (find) "-l" contents (all files and folders)) -- optionally add switches "
-J" for Joliet and
-Rfor RockRidge extensions to / layers of the ISO 9660 volume.
cdrwtool -d -i
-toc switches (and maybe
cdrdao disk-info and
xorriso -indev /dev/sr0 -pvd_info
"pvd" stands for Primary Volume Descriptor, which reports information (metadata) about the ISO 9660 filesystem volume. That filesystem volume comprises the contents of a given, individual data track that resides on the optical medium (disc). The Primary Volume Descriptor is located (resides) in/at the beginning/top of that filesystem volume (data track / bitstream).
xorriso -indev /dev/sr0 -toc
"toc" is (stands for) Table of Contents, which is the overhead for the disc, overall / as a whole. The optical disc (medium)'s T.O.C. can be thought of as the equivalent to what a partition table is on/for other types of block storage devices, like USB flash drives, Solid State Drives, Hard Disc Drives (HDDs). The point here is, (the information that / what is reported/returned/output by that above command serves as information/data about the sessions (and tracks) on the disc (the overall layout structure of the contents of the disc).
Compact Disc Digital Audio -> .wav (windows RIFF? container file, which contains/houses PCM audio samples (content / bistream).)
This app/program/utility is used for audio "ripping" or extraction
Apparently cdda2wav is capable of providing some data about data CD-Rs (and DVD Rs too?) too -- not just audio CDs.
-J --info-only switch.
Its cdrkit equivalent (sister app) is called : icedax (which stands for: the Incredible Digital Audio Extractor).
Also try mounting the filesystem storage volume on the disc
mount -t iso9660 -o norock,nojoliet -o noatime,uid=1000,gid=100 /dev/sr0 /mnt/image/
optionally add options like "session" to choose which session (if more than one session(track) is on the disc).
The "nojliet" and "norock" mount optiosn instruct the mount command to NOT mount the RockRidge and Joliet extensions/layers to ISO9660.
ImgBurn has Read and Verify modes. It gives details stats figures
except what Windows Explorer gives (which corresponds to cdrecord -minfo (msinfo mode too?) for "Free:" free/unallocated space (capacity)
see /generate-optical-filesystems (ISO9660 and its optional extensions like Joliet and Rockridge and UDF)
according to the description of the software it may use DVD Info Pro for the stats functionality (aspect).
