I have been using gtk-recordmydesktop for about 2 weeks now. Great app!
One thing that would be very handy is that if I could specify a shell script to execute after a capture.
This would allow me to run my a script that does a conversion and file copy of the media files.
Thanks for the great app!
Thank you for your interest in recordMyDesktop, but I'm afraid that
I won't be implementing this feature. Running custom scripts/commands
is something that makes sense in programs performing batch/automated
operations and I don't believe that desktop recording falls under that
The main reason though, that this looks like a completely needless
feature, is that recordMyDesktop provides a commandline interface.
So it would be more logical to use that in your custom
scripts, rather than going the other way around.
I could definitely write a custom script to interface with the commandline version of recordmydesktop. I would prefer however to keep using the GTK interface which makes kicking off a script upon completion of a recording a little more difficult. I guess I could write a script/utility to continuously poll the output directory for new OGG files...
FYI, Version 1.4.0 of VirtualBox just implemented a similar feature in the GUI of their virtualization software. They allow you to specify a shell script upon boot and shutdown of a virtual machine that allows you to dynamically create/destroy tap network interfaces.
Keep up the good work!
