Soory for my bad english, i'm from Russia.
I have problem. When i push on red (record) button, program go down. All that i can do it is Control+C. And output file has lenght 1 sec.((
Please tell me, whats wrong?
OS:GNU/Linux openSuse 10.3
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?
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...
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?
Synaptic is an apt based package-installer. http://www.nongnu.org/synaptic
It reads my sources.list an makes installs like "apt-get-install"
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...

Description: Screen video capture for X
A screen capture enabling you to capture videos off your X-Window desktop
for illustration or documentation purposes. It is intended to be a
standards-based alternative to tools like Lotus ScreenCam.
Video can be saved in MPEG or AVI files format.
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...
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
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.

Exiting... (End of file)
Xvidcap is in ubuntu 8.03 repos (sudo aptitude xvidcap):
* 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 :-()
