These set of commands start two instances of VLC.
The first command fires up a minimal view of VLC with video source "/dev/video0" (the default location of webcamera in most general cases).
The second command starts another minimal VLC instance with video from screen:// (desktop) and audio from default built-in microphone "hw:0,0". Output is encoded and saved in current directory as an mp4 file.
Recording stops when you close VLC instances.
