    Need to record the screen - how do i do it?

    I originally posted this in a different section but realized this is a better section for this:


    I am working on a screen capture program to record the screen to a media file (avi/flv/mp4 etc) or transmit the screen across the network for live viewing.

    How do i access the display contents? Are there any APIs i should be reading? Any system calls? Please advice.

    How would YOU do it?

    The project has to be purely C++ and shouldn't use python as do some other projects.

    So far I have:
    Figured out how to make the GUI using Qt
    How to transmit data across a network

    I understand this question may be a little broad. I'd appreciate any pointers you can give me on this.

    Thanks in advance,

    Raja Sekharan
