Hi,

is this project dead? It would be a shame because this is the only and best screen-recorder application I know of that really works as it is supposed to!

This program is not translated (specifically to spanish) or it's just a thing of Kubuntu?

On both the mouse clicks and keyboard when enabled the program wants a device specified. If I click on "search" I always get "no device found.".

Do I need to have a device specified to get the mouse click feature to work? What should the device entry look like? What would I need to do, compile, configure or add to my system to get the "search" feature to work?

Thanks

Great app... been using it for a while, but it's missing one great feature, the ability to capture just the inside of a window without the title bar and frame.

On Fedora you will get build errors related to DSO Linking. To resolve these errors, run the install.sh script one time, then edit build/CMakeCache.txt and run install.sh again.

Modify the line:
CMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAGS:STRING=

To read:
CMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAGS:STRING=-lX11 -lXext -lXfixes -lrecorditnow_plugin

The default bitrate of the recordmydesktop plugin on the encoding page of 45.000 is too low. With this setting, the produced video only had a few frames (3 frames or so, i mean different pictures, the video length is ok though).
After changing this setting to the maximum, i was able to create a screencast with more pictures.

Is the Testatur-monitor tied to the main window or can it be separated?

I would love to see something like the KWin effect showing the pressed shortcuts. Or plasmoid what we could place to panel and it could show the shortcuts (like Ctrl+Shift+A) on it. Then it could be placed to own panel what be placed top of windowses and get it been visible all the times without main window of this application!

It is a completely independent library.

It would be easy to write a plasmoid, but I have no idea how it could look like...
any ideas/mockups? :)

Hi Justi,

Thanks a lot for this new excellent release.

As soon as Ubuntu Lucid Lynx is released (that is, at the end of April) I am going to test RecordItNow on it (I will work on the Gnome desktop).
I would like to translate its GUI into Italian, in order to send you the Italian strings :-)
Naturally, I am going to write you in case I find out some little bugs to fix.
Most of all, I am going to sponsor you the remaining part of my sponsorship for RecorditNow :-)
In the meantime, THANKS again for your work

Best regards,

Silvio

Thank you very much for this nice tool. I really like it, maybe I'm able to find a packager to get it on future kubuntu releases. Would be great to install it through the normal package management.

(Unfortunately I'm lack of knowledge and time at the moment to package it myself ... )

Keep on the good work!

Btw. There are some more dependencies ... findKDE4Internals.cmake module is in kdelibs5-dev package (K/Ubuntu)

Great software. It's the only one that actually gives me a decent framerate and workable interface!

I'm having a few problems in that when I press record, even if the framerate is set to 10/15, my windows start to move a lot slower. Are there any bug reports that I can send?

Also, as suggested by some people maybe you could add a plugin that launches key-mon when the program is loaded

Thats normal because recordmydesktop(the recorder) sends many requests to X (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X_Window_System) and that takes some time.

It's ok, it seems it's because of the ATI graphics card. It doesn't provide hardware acceleration for libfb, which is what most desktop recorders use: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gtk-recordmydesktop/+bug/509111

Hello!
FYI in Lucid you don't need to compile recorditnow since I've created a package and it sits in universe now. I will upgrade it to 0.7 shortly
