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? :) - Jul 20 2010

such a keyboard monitor is now included in RecordItNow-0.8 :)

best regards - Mar 05 2010
>> 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?

Thats normal because recordmydesktop(the recorder) sends many requests to X ( and that takes some time.

- Mar 05 2010
Your XServer is too old - Dec 26 2009
>> The circle under the mouse cursor is great but it would be cool to add an option to display this circle only on mouse clicks instead of displaying it black all the time.

That will be available in 0.8

best regards and merry christmas!

>> I have just find out a new open-source application which could be useful for getting "inspiration" for RecorditNow.
>> Its name is Key-mon and it runs fine on Linux.
>> Maybe you already know it.
>> However, the link for its web-page is:

Thanks, i will take a closer look on it

>>> - It's always the first screen that is recorded when using "record full screen" function.
>>> - The zoom function doesn't work on the second screen (using frame recording). The zoom window stay black and is [...]

same bug and fixed in the next release.
Thank you for report.

>>> [...] weirdly far away from the cursor.
>>> These are not major issues as I can still use first screen only but it's cool if it can be adressed.

Its not a bug, its a feature! :)
The zoom window can not be closer, because otherwise it would zoom in itself...
I am looking for a solution.

>>> * Would be cool to have a "cancel" option because it is useless to render the video & encode it if i think I need to redo it while recording.

Use the stop button :)

>>> PS: I've sent you the french localization by email.

Many thanks! - Nov 29 2009

>> About the zoom-in option, I only hope the icons in the screen won't be "pixeled" too much (zooming-in into imagese always gives this problem...)

You can choose between high and low quality:
But low quality is set by default, because it is simply faster on old computers.

>> I have just donated the first 100 euros (on Friday, 21.30 p.m.).
>> Well, actually they were 150 $ :-)
>>On Sunday I am not at home to do so ;-)

Very many thanks for your support :)

>> 1. 500 euros for zooming in-out (and for panning in such zoomed window);

zoom currently looks like this:
follow the mouse:
or a small window:
You can also set the shortcuts:

Activate/Deactivate zoom: Meta+Ctrl+z
zoom in: Meta:Ctrl++
zoom out: Meta+Ctrl+-

A Pan function does not yet exist, I still have to work on it ...

>>2. 150 euros for having semi-transparent circles around the mouse's cursor.
>>In short, the user must have the option to choose both the semi-transparent colour for the circle for the right and left button and the circle for the mouse displayed on the screen (see such an implementation on Camstudio 2.5 beta).
>>All these three circles are supposed to being visible ONLY later, when the user re-play the video just recorded (in order to not "distract" this guy, when is recording his video).

That's no problem if the circle can be displayed during record and not just in the video.
Otherwise recordmydesktop needs a patch.
But this can be somewhat difficult because recordmydesktop is written in C and I've never written C

Best regards and thanks again :)

>> This Sunday, I am going to donate you 100 euros through pay-pal ;-)
>> I have found out the button above which allows me to do so.

Many thanks for your support :)

>> This beig said and clarified, I would like to donate others 500 euros in case you implement the options to zoom in-out and pan.

Zoom in and out should be no problem.
Pan could be a problem with, but I'll do what I can.

>> As a boon, if it will be possible to have all the options, which are available with Camstudio 2.5 beta, to surround the cursor with a semi-transparent circle I promise I am going to donate you others 150 euros.

At the moment it looks like this:
I draw a small LED next to the mouse cursor, which changes the color (of course, adjustable
still work in progress...

Best regards,
- Nov 26 2009

I am currently working on a zoom function.
I can also try to create a pan function, but i can't promise anything.

whatever donation to support me are of course welcome.
Simply click on the donate button above.

Thank you for your feedback :)

Best regards

>> I would like to know if there is a roadmap for recordit now?
>> I think this software is really promising and I would like to know something more about its future development :-)

unfortunately not...

>> In short, it would be great to have an otption to highlight the mouse's cursor with a circle as you can do with many softwares.

Yes it was already planned and comitted to the git repo a few minutes ago :) - Nov 24 2009

yes one-click start have two unwanted behaviours:
click unintentionally on pgame could start a new xsession.
you cannot select a game( no edit or delete ) - Feb 16 2009
