How to increase screencast length in Fedora 21?

In Fedora 19 there was no limit for screencast (capturing video of the screen). After updating to Fedora 21, I found that there is limit of 30 seconds. After 30 seconds the recording stops automatically.

Luckily, we can increase the limit without any third party tools in Fedora 21.

To increase the limit, open terminal and enter the below command

gsettings set max-screencast-length 0

You see, in the end I have added 0 which means unlimited time. To check whether the settings is saved enter following command in terminal.

gsettings get max-screencast-length

In both commands, the set and get options change. Set option is used to set the screen casting length and get option is used to show current screen casting length in seconds.
