Too bad it does not work too well. It seems to be a cool application.
I finally found the test file and tried to play it in my various players. Only 1 frame showed up.

Well

One possible reason xvidcap (as well as istanbul and ffmpeg compiled --with-x11grab) can crash is because they use oss /dev/dsp for recording and this device is always reported busy on systems that use pulseaudio. If affected, pulseaudio has supplied a workaround for this, called padsp. Try e.g.:

padsp xvidcap

http://www.pulseaudio.org/wiki/PerfectSetup

I uncovered this situation on my system by running xvidcap from the command line using the --verbose flag.

you are not obliged to look in cache.
you may check in "page code" / "page properties" with the browser, and you get the link of all images and also : flash
then
"wget -k url"

When I tried padsp xvidcap, it said, "command not found"

@ frenchn00b
I forgot about viewing the page properties from the view menu. But would that work with local files?

that's a great new link :

concerning the video, xvidcap records laggy or has problems with the frames when you play it.

Which screenshots/config would work fine for a 1.3ghz centrino?
thanks

You just can use some screen recorder, which can help you capture whatever streaming video and audio files flowed on your computer screen. I always use it to record web camera video when I was making video calls with my friends, and I will save the video and share with my family, they all said the video is cool.

Where does it save the file to?
How do I tell it to stop recording?
It should generate an icon in the notification tray; right-clicking it pauses/unpauses the recording and left-clicking it will stop recording and process the video. It will save it as "out.ogv" in your home directory.

@Duron: I don't remember seeing an icon for that.

Wow, it's been a few years for this thread. I forgot about it. I'm on a newer version of SuSE (11.4) now and I still have never been able to use any screen capture video software.

I use an NVidia driver (the proprietary one) so that I can do 3D models. I kinda remember reading something about having OpenGL, 3D enabled being not compatible with recordmydesktop or something like that. My memory is fuzzy on that. One of these days, I'd like to make a video tutorial showing some of my artwork, but for now, I just gave up on it.

Now I'd like to find a free video recording app for Windows 7 because my son would like to make a video showing what he has done in GMod.
