@severen Hi and thank you for the interest in this package. Although being a command line program, screencast can show desktop notifications through libnotify (notify-send), allowing a better visual control of the recording. It uses a specific oxygen icon when showing the desktop notification about the the successful finished operation, as you can see here:

Since desktop notifications are enabled by default in the upstream code, it needs oxygen-icons for working as expected with the default options.

Why does this package need oxygen-icons as a required dependency? Just curious, since it's a command line program.
