Recorded avi shows no video on playback (posted in Help, but no response)
I am new to this, but install seemed to go OK. However, when I record a streaming video I want (wmv), and do the playback, there is no video, whether in the Camstudio player or Windows Media Player.
First attempt was with the MS codec, second with MPEG4 codec. Neither produced video--only audio.
It's possible that you need to temporarily disable Hardware Acceleration in Windows before recording - that should cure the problem.
To do this on Windows 2000/XP, go to the Control Panel, choose Display : Properties : Settings : Advanced : Troubleshooting. Set the Hardware Acceleration slider to None.
For other versions of Windows, go to the Control Panel, choose System, (and under the performance tab), choose Graphics : Advanced. Set the Hardware Acceleration slider to None.
Hope that helps
P.S. If this works and you're able to use CamStudio, please consider donating to keep development alive.
Unfortunately, I have Vista and An Intel graphics driver (Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family) that does not allow disabling acceleration.
As far as I know, it's not possible to record a video playing in a media player without disabling hardware acceleration.
Info direct from Microsoft:
(Scroll down the "Capturing Video During the Screen Capture" section)
Although I'm happy to revise that opinion if someone can show me how.
Your only other option is to disable hardware acceleration in your chosen media player, which may or may not be possible depending on your chipset and if the option exists in your media player.
Other than that, no joy I'm afraid.
After thinking about this for a bit I dug around and found this solution:
WARNING! This involves editing settings in your computer's Registry.
DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS UNLESS YOU ARE EXPERIENCED WITH REGISTRY EDITING AND WITHOUT BACKING UP YOUR ENTIRE REGISTRY FIRST. I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY DAMAGE DONE TO YOUR COMPUTER - ANY PROBLEMS, IT'S YOUR OWN FAULT.
that method doesnt work anymore i think, not for new computers at least
