GPL licence? where is the source?
Tested successfully on brief run under Windows 7 SP1 x64, but Capture Area hard to understand - why just one set of co-ordinates plus width/height and how to calculate latter instead of manually inputting x/y co-ordinates for each of top left and for bottom right? Setting capture area with mouse doesn't seem to work, at least with frame of video output of WinFF 15; mouse drag capture area interferes. docs.txt says how to disable graphics overlay to enable video recording from a media player but can't see how with ffmpeg etc for which WinFF is gui. Seems overall stable.
It is nice, but it "forgot" where I left the windows, or the values that I always use to take my videos. So, I added a memory system that memorize the position of all its windows on the desktop, as well as the settings that were used the last time a recording was made (maybe... don't ask, I won't tell), as well as a resizing preview, for when the preview window (or screen) is smaller than the capture area. I'd like to send the code to the original writers, but the email jonasostby at sourceforge.net, that was listed in krut.sourceforge.net/ , doesn't seem to work. If someone wants to try it, contact me at spamholder.fake at gmail dot com .
Fantastic project. Source was pretty easy to compile. Works from the CLI. Doesn't crash or require install like every other recorder. Easy to mux or re-encode using ffmpeg. I definitely recommend this project.
