Thread: No Save Button or Option in XVifCap

  1. #1

    Default No Save Button or Option in XVifCap

    I've finally managed to install and run XVidCap and after I record a short video I can click the play button and play the video but I can't save it. I've checked the help file and it looks pretty straightforward except that there's a screenshot of the popup window that comes up after you stop the recording and in the screenshot there's 2 save buttons. A Save As and a regular Save button. But when my window pops up there are no save buttons?

    Using openSUSE 11.4 with GNOME desktop.

    Thanks in advance

    Did you install from Packman repo?

    If install ffmpeg you can also do a screen capture like this

    Code:
    ffmpeg -f x11grab -r 15 -s 1280x800 -i  :0.0 -vcodec libx264 -vpre lossless_ultrafast -threads  0 output.mkv
    You might need to adjust the screen dimensions to suit you (1280x800) (Change as required)

    Thanks yes I did install from the pacman repo. And thank you for the code but I much prefer a GUI when doing something like this. I'm not very comfortable using terminal yet. As a matter of fact I tried it and didn't know how to stop it, LOL.

    I just checked and it's working fine

    You know that as soon as you press play the file is saved to your /home/*username
    It is named test-0000.mpeg
    I just let it do that and then rename each one as required

    Yes I see that it works but it is a pain in the butt and you have to remember to either rename it or move it otherwise it gets overwritten. The app should work right though. I should have the option to save or save as. I'm surprised that after all these years there isn't a more full featured app available for screen video, even a commercial one.
