PostPosted: Sat 29 Dec 2007, 08:40    Post_subject:  xvidcap: A screencapture utility  

http://xvidcap.sourceforge.net/#intro

Quote:

a small tool to capture things going on on an X-Windows display to either individual frames or an MPEG video. On Windows machines there are commercial tools like Lotus ScreenCam or Camtasia which do a very good job esp. for the purpose I was needing such a tool for: Software documentation, esp. installation procedures and such.


I've uploaded this as a .pet here, (1594kbytes):

http://rapidshare.com/files/79831890/xvidcap-1.1.6-i486.pet

To run, Menu->Graphic->XVidCap, or enter xvidcap in a console. Entering xvidcap -h will give an outline of usage.

I've used Camtasia in past and well its more advanced than xvidcap but this tool Can be extremely helpful for puppy users, we could have a whole line of videos for new users, it would be nice if we could edit frames eg. adding text on the screen. videos that could be made

Installing puppy
-full install (including partitioning the hard drive)
-usb install
-frugal install

Setting up a printer

Setting up wireless networks

setting up windows shares

Setting the time

making a pet package

installing a .sfs package

making default applications, like changing Seamonkey to Firefox as the default browser

Then placing a sticky post in the "How to" forum

Nope not yet, its a shame would be very good to have, They could be linked to help menu, and main puppylinux.com page, the wiki etc. If I had more time I would make them but, I'm always too busy with building a release or packages, etc. If your not overly extended , feel try to give it a try Smile Maybe once somebody gets the ball rolling others might join in Smile

no work for me in puppy 431 because it didnt create a menu entry. i run from console and it says: compiler did not align stack variables. libavcodec has been miscompiled and may be very slow or crash. this is not a bug in libavcodec but in the compiler. do not report crashes to FFmpeg developers. if i try to play the cap it says /bin/bash: xine: command not found.
not that i need a screencap utility in puppy linux. i really just want to figure out how to stereomix because iman00b and i find nothing about stereomixing.

OK, I vaguely recall there was a problem with menu items not appearing in the menu, with p431, but have no idea whether it was ever resolved. Instead you can just drag the xvidcap .desktop file, in /usr/share/applications, onto the desktop, and it will run from there.

Regarding the missing xine problem, just run this command in a console:

Code:
ln -s /usr/bin/gxine /usr/bin/xine


I definitely got it to make a video in p431.

I don't know if this will help or not but I have xvidcap-1.1.7_i386.pet stored at the location below.If it doesn't work out for you,you can always
send it to the bit bucket.
