Multiple regular-video formats. Simple and works.
2007-04-28 - While it works if compiled (slowly) from source, and can sync audio properly now that I've tried it again.. it can't capture a reasonable-sized screen. It doesn't even get the aspect ratio right.
xvidcap (gvidcap) - says it can record audio, and it can, but it doesn't do it right. I have to research this problem.
sudo apt-get install xvidcap
Well now, it comes with PCLinuxOS as of 2007-TR4. Cool.
\apt-get install xvidcap ffmpeg
Do I have to install
libavformats50? It didn't make a difference.
It doesn't work.. I see no movie making features. It doesn't let me pick codecs. It's busted.
compiling from source ∞
\apt-get install libgtk+2.0_0-devel
\apt-get install libglade2.0_0-devel libxmu6-devel
I'm guessing other libraries should be there.. like the ogg libraries or mp3lame libraries. Hrm.
Well, it works. Just don't try to record any video or audio.
- I can record a corner of an xterm in all black and hear my voice.
- I can record a very small area and animation is synced up nicely. Anything larger does not seem to work properly.
- Movies don't have the proper aspect ratio. What the heck is with that??
- Setting the quality lower just screws everything up somehow.
- It pauses for a while before starting. What's with that?
It cuts off the end sound and video too short.
