    gtk-recordmydesktop video playback is too fast

    Hey everyone i wasn't quite sure where to post this under, im not completely sure if its a hardware issue or a program issue. But when i record a video with anything over 7 frames per second in gtk-recordmydesktop the video playback after the recording move 2x or more the speed it should be. While the voice itself plays in a good pace.


    Also, I use the "Encode on the Fly" option, without this option my video is horribly choppy but it works at regular pace. In this sense it may seem like a Video Driver fault, or even maybe my processor can't keep up?
    heres my video lshw entry:

    Code:
    -display:0

                 product: Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller

    Also my audio:

    Code:

                 product: 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller

                 capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list

                 resources: irq:22 memory:fc300000-fc303fff
    If anyone has any idea what could be the problem please please please help! I'm trying to make high quality videos for my Ubuntu Lost Videos youtube channel but its kind of a bummer when the system your working on gives you these problems...

    What's the complete program's name ? "Neva manage" ? I can't find it on the repository and on the internet... thanks for helping.

    I think he was saying that he "never managed" to get it working with video and sound altogether

    Re: gtk-recordmydesktop video playback is too fast

    The video is too slow because, during the recording, your computer is too slow to record and compress the requested number of frames per second. When the computer can only manage, say, 5 frames per second but you requested 20, the video will run 4 times too fast.

    The solution is to reduce the requested number of frames per second, (in the advanced section of the options), or use 'no compression'.

    Works like a charm! I had it as "Encode On The Fly" but changed it to 'Zero Compression'. Although it takes a while to encode after recording, at least now it work as it suppose to be.

    Thank you very much...

    Re: gtk-recordmydesktop video playback is too fast

    I lowered the frame per second to 6, unchecked Zero compression, checked quick subsampling and finally the video is in normal speed and in perfect sync with audio.
    Looks like my Intel P6100 is not able to encode my 1366*768 screen on time and was loosing lots of frames.
    I did not notice any change to the video quality for what I am doing.
    Thanks Tinooz and all...
