File Information

Can be used to record any screen activity and output the recorded actions as video file (MOVIE.avi). It also saves the frames used to
create the movie in a jpg format frames. The images are named as
scrcapture -frame number- .jpg
For example the first frame is named scrcapture1.jpg
The recording time is almost identical to the actual cpu time.
The quality of the video is excellent, but the size is big. One is advised
to record short videos(order of minutes).For even better quality, one could replace the
png format to jpg(simply uncomment the respective commands).
                    to call the function, one types:

  movie_name: is a string representing the name of the movie
  recording_time: is the length of the capturing (in seconds)
To try, one might use the following example:
When the code is done writing the movie, a gong sound will be played
to inform the user that the movie is finished.
