I'm having a problem between running gvidcap on the command line and using the gui. I use this command line with the gui
gvidcap --fps 8.0 --continue no --time 0 --frames 0 --cap_geometry 1400x1050+103+85 --file test.avi --gui no
With that command, it records fine but when I try to play the resulting movie with WMP 10 I get the following error:
Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.
Now, if I run the same command without the --gui option, wait for the gui to appear, press the record button manually everything works fine, and the movie plays with WMP 10 just fine.
Can anyone think of what I might be doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
what version of xvidcap are you talking about?
Can you provide two small example videos? One recoreded with and one without GUI?
Please also file a bug, as getting a working video should not depend on the usage of the GUI.
Btw., can mplayer read the video where WMP complains?
What file type does mplayer detect?
can you start both command versions (GUI or no) with the -v parameter and send the output?
