Hello

It is nice to see this kind of application written for KDE4!

I have some suggestions after testing it:

1.Changing working folder in recordmydesktop plugin is not working for me - changed folder is not remembered

2.Add an option in preferences to remember last used settings - I mean size of recorded frame, time before recording, muted or sound on

3.Option to set application used to preview recorded video/screenshot directly from recorditnow

4.Add to recorditnow option to record video directly from webcam - as a third plugin

5.Option to delete recorded files/screenshots and clean working folder directly from recorditnow

Thank You for Recorditnow!

>> 1.Changing working folder in recordmydesktop plugin is not working for me - changed folder is not remembered
That is a bug, already fixed in the git repo, thanks for report.


>> 2.Add an option in preferences to remember last used settings - I mean size of recorded frame, time before recording, muted or sound on
Implemented in the git repo

>> 3.Option to set application used to preview recorded video/screenshot directly from recorditnow
RecordItNow follows KDE`s global settings

>> 4.Add to recorditnow option to record video directly from webcam - as a third plugin
on TODO list

>> 5.Option to delete recorded files/screenshots and clean working folder directly from recorditnow

Is there any plans to make a plasma widget?

I have made a mockup long time ago about this kind feature what would use the recordmydesktop, but it was targetted first for webcams only. But it would have the recordmydesktop support as well.

but why not just have plasmoid for that as well?

with the latest source i am able to compile on kde 4.3.2

nice

but... i hope you can add some feature

this for example :

audio recording alone i mean i think you have used recormydekstop so you have used its feature to record audio too.

that is bad because recordmydesktop can give in some audio card some problems on synchronization.

i have made my own script on bash to solve this problem using :
recordmydesktop to capture video
arecord to capture audio.

and it works fine with nice synchronization.

if you want see it youi can see here

http://www.cli-apps.org/content/show.php/arecordmydesktop?content=102911

please add this feature using another way to capture audio will make happy a lots of people
