If you mean the x11grab backend, then yes.

I could probably use (I am not sure whether I could properly synchronize 
that, though),
but this process (application -> x11 -> ffmpeg) would involve an 
unnecessary stage;
the (virtual) X display. I would like to omit that, to reach better 
throughput, lower latencies and more easy synchronization of the frames.

Thank you for your help:
