## For 64 bit machines
# wget http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el6/x86_64/nux-dextop-release-0-1.el6.nux.noarch.rpm

Once Downloaded Execute RPM

Now Install xvidcap on your RHEL / Centos Machines

# yum -y --enablerepo=nux-dextop install xvidcap

But here sometime It doesn’t work to record audio from microphone so to enable audio you run the same commadn with one parameter which will enbale audio in xvidcap for you.
