 Video sometimes stutters

 by hellocatfood on: Feb 4 2010
Score 50%

Great software. It's the only one that actually gives me a decent framerate and workable interface!

I'm having a few problems in that when I press record, even if the framerate is set to 10/15, my windows start to move a lot slower. Are there any bug reports that I can send?

Also, as suggested by some people maybe you could add a plugin that launches key-mon when the program is loaded

Thats normal because recordmydesktop(the recorder) sends many requests to X (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X_Window_System) and that takes some time.

It's ok, it seems it's because of the ATI graphics card. It doesn't provide hardware acceleration for libfb, which is what most desktop recorders use: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gtk-recordmydesktop/+bug/509111

Thank you very much for this nice tool. I really like it, maybe I'm able to find a packager to get it on future kubuntu releases. Would be great to install it through the normal package management.

(Unfortunately I'm lack of knowledge and time at the moment to package it myself ... )

Keep on the good work!

Btw. There are some more dependencies ... findKDE4Internals.cmake module is in kdelibs5-dev package (K/Ubuntu)

Hi Justi,

Thanks a lot for this new excellent release.

As soon as Ubuntu Lucid Lynx is released (that is, at the end of April) I am going to test RecordItNow on it (I will work on the Gnome desktop).
I would like to translate its GUI into Italian, in order to send you the Italian strings :-)
Naturally, I am going to write you in case I find out some little bugs to fix.
Most of all, I am going to sponsor you the remaining part of my sponsorship for RecorditNow :-)
In the meantime, THANKS again for your work

Best regards,

 Keys loggin

Is the Testatur-monitor tied to the main window or can it be separated?

I would love to see something like the KWin effect showing the pressed shortcuts. Or plasmoid what we could place to panel and it could show the shortcuts (like Ctrl+Shift+A) on it. Then it could be placed to own panel what be placed top of windowses and get it been visible all the times without main window of this application!

What is Linux and GNU/Linux?

It is a completely independent library.

It would be easy to write a plasmoid, but I have no idea how it could look like...
any ideas/mockups? :)

 Default Bitrate is to low

 by argeleb on: Aug 4 2010
Score 50%

The default bitrate of the recordmydesktop plugin on the encoding page of 45.000 is too low. With this setting, the produced video only had a few frames (3 frames or so, i mean different pictures, the video length is ok though).
After changing this setting to the maximum, i was able to create a screencast with more pictures.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
