I’m trying to capture my desktop screen and audio , before I used xvidcap but after upgrading my system I can not use it and also recordmydesktop anymore these APPs hanged when I try to use them.Now I try to use recorditnow via ffmpeg recorder interface , it work properly in recording the desktop but it does not record the sound , so I tried to add below options to its command
-f alsa -ac 2 -i hw:0,0
but it just record sound at the beginning and just for 1 second. anybody can help me???
Also when I try to capture my desktop with ffmpeg directly from command line with below command I face with same problem!!!
ffmpeg -f x11grab -s 1024X768 -r 30 -i :0.0 -f alsa -ac 2 -i hw:0,0 ~/out.mpg
Thanks for reply , I read it before but it did not work for me . I face with below ERROE:
[alsa @ 0x64ec40] cannot open audio device hw:1,0 (No such file or directory)
hw:1,0: Input/output error
Also I just can find hw:0,0 in my system.
do you have any idea???
The command that you have originally used, I have only tested on openSUSE-11.3 PC with out pulse being present, so its possible for openSUSE-11.4 one needs to specify the audio codec which you have not done … ie try the following command which works for me on openSUSE-11.4 :
I have no idea why you installed so many ffmpeg apps. I know they are NOT all installed by default. Do you know why you installed so many ? Again, in GNU/Linux more is NOT better and it is often worse.
Now what I have to do??? It seems my Sound card driver has problem , how could I reconfigure it??? And should I remove all packages that did not install by default?? Actually i thought its so good if I install all packages!!!
Also before I install all these packages I faced with my problem , and according to the feedback from xvidcap or recordmydesktop and even many Apps that just record the sound I guess my sound card driver has problem.
dara-hr, with so many apps (of dubious utility - you have not explained to us EXACTLY why each of them is needed, with references proving why your view is correct), its very difficult to know what the problem might be. It could be your alsa driver or it could be the many apps you have installed. What you have in place is such a mess, I would not know where to start. I would never do this to myself. Sorry, but I have no advice.
Someone else will need to help you on this thread as the MASSIVE unncessary apps you have installed has put this problem out of my experience and out of my willingness to spend my volunteer time on. Sorry.
My ffmpeg Desktop capture is working fine. Records desktop and audio separate (two xterm terminals, one for screen (Beeld) and one for Audio) and combines it to an mp4 and then puts automatically an intro in front of it. All great.
One problem: when I quit the sceencast by hitting q in the xterm screen (Beeld) xterm quites only the screen (Beeld) not the Audio xterm.
Have tried with killall xterm but then the audio stops a few seconds to early.
I would like to quit the Audio terminal automatically a few seconds later as the screen.
I has been a while since I have tried to capture my desktop’s activity and audio. In the past I used RecordMyDesktop with good effects to generate .ogg/Vorbis output, then converted the file to .avi using a script that I have. At the time I was making videos of the early Beryl / Compiz 3D desktop effects and posting to YouTube.
I recently compiled / installed the latest XBMC Media Center 11.0 (Eden) from source code and want to record it running on my desktop. This is one cool app!
Anyway, RecordMyDesktop seems to no longer function. I have tried others, but also no success. So, let’s try this in Terminal. I am running a notebook with openSuSE 12.1, KDE 4.0 desktop, internal recorder and the speakers are a standard peripheral external set-up just plugged into my audio output plug on my machine. I have been Googling around resulting in outdated threads, and would like some assistance here.
