    Xvidcap: 1.1.6

      This is prolly the new "minimize to tray" feature. Look at the system notification tray for an led meter icon that displays capture rate and right-click there, or disable the feature in the general options.

      Hi, I also use xvidcap 1.1.6. But when I start the record Button there is a black tray-icon. When I make a right-click xvidcap crushes and is gone!

        more info needed here:
        what distro/version, how did you install xvidcap, which parameters.
        Have you tried 1.1.7rc1?

    • Nobody/Anonymous

      Distri: SIDUX-Debian (daily upgraded) and I installed it with the package-installer "Synaptic"
      My xvidcap version is 1.1.6-0.1. I haven't seen 1.1.7rcl on my package installer and I can't manually install any programes...


      • Nobody/Anonymous

        I have no idea who built that package and how. Could you find out who the package maintainer is from synaptic and get in contact with him?

    • Nobody/Anonymous

      Synaptic is an apt based package-installer. http://www.nongnu.org/synaptic

      It reads my sources.list an makes installs like "apt-get-install"

      That's it...

        been using distros based on Debian since 2000 and know synaptic quite well.
        What I meant was: Last time I checked, there was no official deb for ubuntu or Debian as such.
        Certainly, I have NOT created any package for Debian, only ever for the ubuntu version I chance to use at a given point in time.

        So, if you install a deb through synaptic, somebody else has compiled that, and I have no idea what he or she did. There are a few options to chose from when building. Therefore, you should try to get in contact with your package maintainer and he will contact me if he thinks that's not a packaging bug but an upstream bug.

        You should be able to find the package maintainer by running "dpkg -s xvidcap".

      Thank you! I will mail the maintainer...

      I found the Problem!

      If you disable the audio-recording funktion, then XVIDCAP will work well!
      But I want to have the audio funktion enabled...


    • Nobody/Anonymous

      This is why it crashed when Audio is enabled to /dev/dsp:

      The program 'xvidcap' received an X Window System error.
      This probably reflects a bug in the program.
      The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
        (Details: serial 2473068 error_code 8 request_code 161 minor_code 1)
        (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
         that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
         To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
         option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
         backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

      HI I used xvidcap in gutsy gibbon with few problems but will not work in hardy heron!

      when I click to record anything (xvidcap) programe just shuts down!

      need better codecs though

      I installed new version from repositorys


      • Nobody/Anonymous

        From what repositories? AFAIK xvidcap is not in the ubuntu repos, is it?
        Also, try to start xvidcap from a terminal and see what error message shows up.

      Xvidcap is in ubuntu 8.03 repos (sudo aptitude xvidcap):

      Version 1.1.6-0.1ubuntu1:

        * Merge from debian-multimedia (LP: #120003), Ubuntu Changes:
         - For ffmpeg-related build-deps, remove cvs from package names.
         - Standards-Version 3.7.3
         - Maintainer Spec
      Sadly it does not work. Program freezes.
      I downloaded the 1.1.7rc1.deb and... wow...it works!

      I have noticed that the 1.1.7rc1 installs Imagemagic-package, the ubuntu-repos-version does not.
      Funny thing is: Update claims that the ubuntu-version is the new one! (And wants to update :-()
