I'm trying to record a video on a reasonably fast machine (quad-core Xeon), but I can't get recordmydesktop-0.3.8.1 to capture more than 1 frame about every 3-5 seconds. I have disabled compositing, I have made sure that the DAMAGE extension is enabled. I have tried capturing the whole desktop, a specific screen area, and a specific window. I have tried with sound on and off. I have tried recording to disk, and recording to RAM. None of these result in acceptable frame rates.
- 4-core Xeon 2.5GHz
- 10GB RAM
- Gentoo 64-bit
- nVidia Quadro w/ proprietary drivers
Any ideas what I could tweak to get recordmydesktop to work properly?
I have similar problem. I tired recording speed painting but it was really slow.
I'm using: Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit
AMD X2 Athlon II 215, 2MB 64Bit 2.7GHz
4GB 800MHz Dual Channel RAM
VGA ATI Radeon 4650 1GB
Hello, I have a similar problem - the screen does not seem to be being captured - CPU usage is nowhere near maxed out. I have used this system before (a long while ago) to successfully generate video sequences
I am running opensuse 11.3 - could it be the encoding stage? The img.out file is generated, and I get 79 "FRAM" entries in the generated file.
Python 2.6.5 (r265:79063, May 6 2011, 17:25:59)
[GCC 4.5.0 20100604 ] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import re
So the frames appear to be different, and there are quite a few of them - Could it be the encoding step? Does rmd provide any API for dumping these "FRAM" elements to something like a PNG?
OK, so its this bug:
Can one of the maintainers please apply the patch "patch to use sane defaults", or release a fixed stable tarball??
