    Good to know. By the way, I'm not volunteering to package it up for Dapper. I have no problem building stuff from source, but I don't have any experience with creating a proper deb file (with all the dependencies and such). I just figured that whoever did volunteer would need to know from where to get the code.

    By the way, the project's homepage doesn't work without javascript being enabled... That is generally not a good thing.

    I removed the version I installed yesterday, and installed the 2.6 CVS-1 version (CLI only).

    Installed fine. Ran with:

    andi@andi-laptop:~$ recordmydesktop --quick-subsampling --zero-compression
    Initial recording window is set to:
    X:0 Y:0 Width:1024 Height:768
    Adjusted recording window is set to:
    X:0 Y:0 Width:1024 Height:768
    Your window manager appears to be beryl


    Detected 3d compositing window manager.
    Reverting to full screen capture at every frame.
    To disable this check run with --no-wm-check
    (though that is not advised, since it will probably produce faulty results).

    Initializing...
    Recording on device hw:0,0 is set to:
    2 channels at 22050Hz
    Capturing!
    Shutting down.Saved 134 frames in a total of 444 requests
    ....
    Encoding started!
    This may take several minutes.
    Pressing Ctrl-C will cancel the procedure (resuming will not be possible, but
    any portion of the video, which is already encoded won't be deleted).
    Please wait...

    Encoding finished!
    Wait a moment please...

    Cleanning up cache...
    Done!!!
    Goodbye!


    Ended up with an out.ogg file of 138.4Kb.

    Which really doesn't seem right (surely that's WAY too small for a video file?)

    @d3v1ant_0n3 indeed the file size is too small

    I solved the libasound2 problem by getting the dev files for it...even got the gtk frontend to install...it's great...records my Beryl or Gnome sessions fine....but....

    It only plays them back in a Beryl session...same thing as a previous poster's is experiencing...Mplayer opens and then shuts down in a Gnome playback...any clues as to why?

    well, ok, i realized i screwed up my sources list at some point so i got that straightened out and had to upgrade nearly two hundred packages...done now..installed libasound2-dev and i am still getting the sae error as before when trying to install the deb. just giving up for the night. i'll check this thread tomarrow afternoon to see if there are any developements on the issue.

    Good night to all,

    gorilla_king :

    If this command:
    Code:
    apt-cache show libasound2 |grep Version
    shows any less than 1.0.11, the package can't be installed.
    If you are on edgy, you should already have it. If you are on dapper according to
    http://packages.ubuntu.com/ you can get it by enabling the backports repository.
    libasound2-dev is only required for compilation.
    I can only go around guessing how djsroknrol installed by getting the dev package.
    Maybe he has backports already enabled and installing libasound2-dev forced the upgrade on libasound2 too.

    But, perhaps you should wait until someone makes a package for dapper.
    I wouldn't want this program to become the reason for anyone breaking his installation...


    yabbadabbadont :

    I know I should get rid of it alltogether and use php. It's certainly
    within my long-term plans, but I don't spend much time with it (obviously)
    so it'll have to wait...

    Also, to get the latest compy of the code you need to run these:

    Code:
    cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@recordmydesktop.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/recordmydesktop login
    (empty password)


    Code:
     cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@recordmydesktop.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/recordmydesktop co -P recordmydesktop


    @d3v1ant_0n3:
    According to this:
    Done.
    Written 10911001 bytes
    (10360192 of which were video data and 550809 audio data)
    You've written 10 mb's. It's a straight count of fwrite returns and I cannot imagine why it would be wrong.
    What I can think though is that you checked the wrong file. After the first file is written(out.ogg),
    subsequesnt sessions will not overwrite it( in the cvs version).

    Instead they're stored incrementally like this out.ogg.1, out.ogg.2 etc.

    So if you used the command line all the way, check again what files you
    have in the directory you launced the program from(probably your home).
    There's also the --overwite option which will not change the name and will erase any previous ones.


    @djsroknrol:
    On a normal gnome session try this :
    mplayer -vo x11 out.ogg
    and then this
    mplayer -vo xv out.ogg

    And write back what happened(if it played the video).
    Check also if the file "Experience ubuntu.ogg" in the /usr/share/example-content/ folder gives you any of this behavior.
    This way we can make sure it's not something related to your configuration.





    Did I miss anyone? Just woke up, so I got to go make some coffee...
