Ubuntu 10.10 GNOME
None of the screen recorders I've tried are working. They either dont make it through saving screencasts, or the video they produce is messed up.
For example, gtk record My Desktop. Amazing screen quality. Amazing sound quality. However, when I watch the video it produces, there's a big problem. What ends up happening is that whenever I switched to a new tab in a web browser, or opened up a new program, only bits and pieces of windows would record, resulting in rigid and highly pixilated edges. Also, these bits and pieces of windows would seem to stay on the screen in random places.
Since this is happening with ALL screen recorders I've tried (Including Istanbul and RecordItNow,) I believe it might be a problem with the recorders' settings, or Ubuntu itself. I don't think it's the graphics cards that cause the problem. Everything else works, including the Flash bits of websites (which, on the other 10 or so Installations of Ubuntu 10.10, would randomly go grey.) If it is the graphics cards, I would really like some suggestions that do NOT include installing the nvidia drivers. This is the nteenth time i am giving Ubuntu a chance, and all the NVidia drivers ever did was make sure I could only boot into a tty1 screen and NEVER access my GUI ever again, no matter how many guides' and forums' tactics I used. I've experienced no problems with opensuse, ever, so I'm also sure it's not the settings of the screen recorders.
