I'm loving xvidcap. I'm having a little problem though. I'd like to put this into a simple script such as,
xvidcap --fps 30 --quality 100 --codec mpeg4 --time 10 --cap_geometry 1920x1200+0+0 --source x11 --gui no --file "/home/chris/sessions/SCREENIE-%04d.mpg" --audio yes --audio_channels 2
Now, I'd like for xvidcap to make 10 second clips, however, it only make ONE 10-second clip and stops. What am I doing wrong? BTW, i did have "--continue" in there with no difference.
Did you have "--continue yes" in there?
Yes, I do. What I posted doesn't have it in the line, but I actually do have it now. It still doesn't work. Here is my current line.
xvidcap --fps 30 --quality 100 --time 120.0 --continue yes --cap_geometry 1920x1200+0+0 --source x11 --file "/vids/$(whoami)/ScreenCast-%04d.swf" --gui no --audio yes --audio_in /dev/dsp --audio_channels 2 &
There seems to be some regression here. But starting to debug that, I'm getting more unchecked errors.
For the time being try with --frames instead of --time
should be fixed in current svn. If you feel comfortable with building from svn please try and report your success here.
xvidcap --mf --file /tmp/bla-%04d.avi --time 3 --continue yes
