So i just upgraded to ubuntu 9.10 and unlike ubuntu 9.04 its able to connect to my wireless N router. BUT if im making tutorials for ubuntu ill need a desktop recorder. unfortunately on the ubuntu software centre it wont let me install RecordMyDesktop.
I've been playing around with my settings for ages now but I cant get GTK-recordmydesktop to record anything other than my mic. Ideally I need the mic and the computer sounds to be recorded, any ideas how this can be done? I've googled around but nothing really helpful comes up. Also, if you need my hardware info, just tell me the command and i'll post the results.
Does Recordmydesktop have a file size limit? I'm considering using the Zero compression setting to keep CPU usage down, but I don't want to run up against a 2GB or 4GB file size limit. While I know some filesystems impose this limit, most screen recorders I've used have a 2GB or 4GB limit when recording, regardless of the filesystem.Is this an issue with Recordmydesktop
I am going to cover these four problems in this thread.
1.)Using gtk-recordMyDesktop and xvidcap for recording videos 2.)Saving files in ogv format 3.)Converting ogv to avi or wmv or ? 4.)Uploading ogv video to .....
First, I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and have installed gtk-recordMyDesktop and it works great. Save a nice clear video with good sound. I can play it right from my system and also from my server but I can not upload it to ...... Maybe I should say I can't upload a good video to ...... It uploads OK but it is un-viewable. Just to make sure it wasn't a Ubuntu problem I tried uploading it from Windows 7. Same thing. The next thing I tried was to convert it to another file format and even before I uploaded it, it was un-viewable. (looked the same as when it was uploaded to .....). I tried the conversion in a Windows program called AVS and I also tried doing it with VLC in Ubuntu. VLC just give me a blank file after converting. I don't think the problem is with ..... but with the file itself. To be honest with you I believe the video is high quality but I don't see how I can put them on ...... Has anyone converted ogv files to another format which looks good and can be uploaded to .....? Has anyone uploaded a ogv file to ..... and have it look good? Does anyone know anything I can try to get a good viewable file up to ...... I tried recording a video with xvidcap and get a good video and it looks good on ..... but I can't get the sound to work with it. All I get is clicking in the video. File is in mpeg format.
Here is a youtub video to show you the un-viewable video.[URL]..
I've been trying to make screencast, but I also want it to capture the sound coming from the computer; In other words, I do not mean the microphone. I tried changing the sound device from DEFAULT to pulse with no avail
I've just downloaded gtk-recordmydesktop and when I press record a split second later this message comes up: Recording is finished recordmydesktop has exited with status: 768 Description: Could not open/configure sound card. if I need to download anything extra from the repos or something I have to do in system settings.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 as a guest on virtual box installed on windows 7. I have installed gtk-recordmydesktop(rmd) using synaptic package manager. rmd do not recognize any window when I use the 'extra' visual effects i.e. compiz effects.
I like to make tutorials on several different things, and since I'm a ubuntu user now, I found Record my Desktop. The thing is, When I stop the video, the encoder takes FOREVER! I left it there for over 5 minutes and it's still at 0%.
I am currently trying to start doing some screen casting and having a problem with audio recording in gtk-recordmydesktop. The problem is that I need to record both; my computers audio card output, and my mic input at the same time. As of now I am able to record one or the other.
I'm using recordmydesktop for screencasts and currently use pavucontrol to select the monitor as the input source, as shown in many guides across the Internet, but I can't find anything on how to do it from the command line. How can I select a monitor as the audio input source for recordmydesktop from the command line?
I don't have exact same hardware so I may be wrong (or shooting in dark) here but as per my knowledge the drivers u r using r open source drivers.
If u have 32 bit Ubuntu installed I would say install [url] drivers from that link else if u r interested in bleeding edge open source drivers (sometime may go wrong as very much in development phase) look at [url]
I wasn't apparently paying enough attention as the link I mentioned found driver 256.52 and when I looked at the real nVidia site you mentioned it had version 256.53 so now I have the absolute latest version installed. I had to find the 64 bit version though, but that was easy.
And this is amazing as I only ever used the 185 version that came with Ubuntu! At first it wouldn't install and I found that you have to stop the x server, etc. but, I found this link that worked perfectly [url] I am still wondering how to get my "NVIDIA X server settings" back under System > Administration, but found if I enter "nvidia-settings" in a terminal it shows up fine.
While I was entering this I got it back by adding a new option in System > Preferences > Main Menu. So, I am good to go!
I noticed you entered a command line for gtk-recordmydesktop, could you share that? I tried it with the 256.52 driver and still had some flickering.
I've been hunting around for some screen capture software in Ubuntu, for future screencasts and out of the handful I've tried I've gone with gtk-recordmydesktop. After initial problems with recording quality, I have managed to get everything working but have noticed that on playback of any captured video, is played back at a crazy speed, the frame rate is not the issue as it is on the default 15 FPS setting but still the play back is very fast.
I noticed before my tweaking that playback was normal speed, but the quality was garbage, and I found that this was because of Compiz being enabled, and I have to run gtk-recordmydesktop with "Encode on the fly" and "Full shots at every frame" enabled in order for the video playback to not be all cut up, however ever since encoding on the fly has been enabled, this has caused playback to be hilariously fast.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 with Compiz enabled. With an nVidia GPU (8200 M)
Recordmydesktop sounds great. I installed it in F14 with both the gtk and the qt gui. Both of them start the recorder, but I can't find any way to stop it.
I really thought something like this would have some reasonable controls, like a time I could set for it to stop, on some way to stop it manually, but the only way I can find to stop it is to kill the process. If this were true then it would be junk, so surely there is some way to control it.
Either recordmydesktop produces corrupted files or nothing (mencoder, ffmpeg, kdenlive, pitivi) can open it. (How come totem can?) I need to just stick some text and some sound on this clip but nothing works.
I want to do two different things in gtk-recordmydesktop. 1, record directly from the soundcard (so no distortion from speakers or microphone).
2, record from a usb microphone.I can do (1) just using sound recorder already, but of course no video.
As far as (2) is concerned, I set advanced->sound to pulse, DEFAULT, or hw:0,0 or hw:x,y (x and y are any combinations of 0, 1, or 2). (all the hw combinations cause gtk-recordmydesktop to crash)
I have a choice between the motherboard (STAC92xx) and the CMI8738 PCI card. (only the latter sees the usb microphone for some reason). The CMI8738 shows up as card 0 in /proc/asound.
Any idea of where I can find what numbers to put in gtk-recordmydesktop->advanced->sound? I am feeling rather stupid, but I couldn't make much sense of what I have found on google.Plus. I am using fedora core 10 but with a 2.6.29 kernel and I am only running pulseaudio.Jack looks complicated, but is that the only way to go.
I recently tried out recordMyDesktop (not the GTK+ frontend, just the CLI program, I wanted to Keep It Simple this time ), and found that the videos it records/encodes show massive motion-smearing artifacts when played back. This is without the "--on-the-fly-encoding" option; with it, the video looks fine (i.e. has no artifacts other than the typical ones found in any compressed video), but it plays back too quickly (the time-step between frames is too high, thus making everything go too fast when the video is played back, even though the frame rate is low). Here's a screenshot of the video playing, showing what the artifacts look like (they're nasty!).
I've searched Google and LQ about this problem to no avail: either there were no relevant results, or it was just a post on a different forum asking basically the same question, but with no answer. So apparently this problem is either really rare, or it's something specific to my configuration, and mine alone (highly unlikely).
I've tried different options, such as --quick-subsampling, as well as tweaking the video quality and bitrate settings (--v_quality and --v_bitrate), all of which did nothing to change/get rid of the artifacts.
i just had to switch from 10 to 11 until 12 comes out, and after setting up asterisk, i noticed VERY VERY BAD sound quality, mostly comprised of severe jittering. I noticed that the way Fedora lets you work with your sound devices in 11 is way different (nicer, but obviously not complete) than ever before, and i am using the same asterisk configs as before, so i'm positive that this is NOT an asterisk issue, and does NOT really belong in this forum; however, only asterisk users will be able to replicate or identify with this issue.
Have any of you 11 users had this happen to you, and if so, did you figure out how to solve it? I'm sure that i can *try* adjusting asterisks jitter buffer settings, but like i said, it was NEVER an issue before 11... Another clue would be that i cannot get crap like gtk-recordmydesktop to produce sound (but that may very well be another issue; however i doubt it)...
Ubuntu insists on using movie player as the default for audio files. I would like to use VLC. VLC doesn't show up on the list as preferred applications for multimedia. I tried using custom with vlc %u but it doesn't work.
I have a Dell 1525 and I just installed Ubuntu on it. The Multimedia keys (previous, stop, play/pause, next) and volume control keys (mute, increase, decrease) buttons aren't working at all. Is there anyway I can get them to work?
so i don't know what happened, but all multimedia files are suddenly speed up/and-or with no sound (ubuntu 11.04 with all recent updates, firefox 4, adobe flash-instick etc.)
if i try to play a flash movie on for instance videos it's sped-up with no sound, if i play an mp3 song (i use exaile) the bar is sped up and there's no sound either, if i start an avi movie (vlc) it's not sped up but there's no sound though.
when i log in to the system the logging in jingle is not playing, so basically the sound just got turned off for some reason but according to the soundbar it should be on.
this problem started just recently. i don't know if it has to do with recent updates or that my log in re-started a couple of times after using a kde program (kmess).
