I have downloaded and install recordmydesktop, Now the program runs well.. but.. when I hit on record.. it creates this out.ogg file, now when I try to play this file with mplayer I get nothing.. no sound, no video.. what am I doing wrong?
ok.. I gout sound by running.. recordmydesktop -o out.avi, this seems to work.. but the sound sounds really ugly.. anyways.. as far as video.. I have yet to get.
recordMyDesktop captures only in ogg/theora+vorbis. Changing the
extension to .avi doesn't have any effect on how the program runs.
But if this change enables you to play the sound, then the problem
is probably lack of proper codec support in your playback software.
So, check if your files are playable with another player.
vlc (http://www.videolan.org/) is a very good one.
Also if you are using gentoo, make sure that you've compiled mplayer
with theora support.
