I am using recordmydesktop-0.2.4 compiled as
CFLAGS="-O2 -fPIC" ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64
I ran the application as the following :
I got the sound working by fiddling with alasamixer capture options, but the video is still blocky
i have a sample that has been converted to mpeg
sorry to sound silly, but i did
recordmydesktop -device hw:0,1 -channels 2 -v_quality 20 -s_quality 4 -o one.ogg
and its a lot better
i wonder what was wrong before
Well, as far as sound is concerned, you are
supposed to set the mixer settings yourself, but
you already know that now. Perhaps I should add
a faq entry in the website and a note in the
Now, to the distorted video...I can only get
into assumptions, which will not be realy
helpfull. So, perhaps you can help me by giving
me a little bit more info.
Specifically, I would like to know your
distribution, your screen resolution
and the output of these commands:
~$ pkg-config --modversion theora vorbis ogg xdamage
~$ xdpyinfo |grep "X.Org version"
Also ,this somehow reminds me of a previous
problem, so in order to be sure you can do the
following two recordings and tell me what happened:
~$ recordmydesktop --no-cond-shared -o test.ogg
~$ recordmydesktop --with-shared -o test.ogg
(If these two recordings come with identical results, both distorted or both good, then it is not related to that problem.)
Sorry if I'm asking too much, but this is the
only way to make any progress.
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to report this. I will do my best to find the source of
the problem and hopefully, by the time the next
release comes out it will be solved. Meanwhile
feel free to post regarding any further questions or problems you might have.
