Description Pavlo Rudyi 2014-07-29 07:55:08 UTC
Expected results:

Analog of VirtualBox options "“Video Capture" and rdp connection to guest system.

Comment 1 Igor Gnatenko 2014-07-29 08:40:51 UTC
Yes, I'm also interesting in this feature. Something like exisiting feature "Get screenshot from VM".

Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2014-07-29 14:17:24 UTC
FWIW RDP is a separate request, but there's no use filing it since there isn't a clear embeddable rdp client for us to use, and qemu doesn't even support rdp.

That's only for example. I hope we can record by vnc or spice.

FWIW, the "right way" todo this would likely be to extend both GTK-VNC and SPICE-GTK so that they can integrate with gstreamer to provide an audio+video source that can attach to a connection. Then virt-manager would use these sources in a gstreamer pipeline to save it to some arbitrary output video format.

Comment 5 Cole Robinson 2015-03-24 23:07:58 UTC
Yeah given that there's serious plumbing needed to support this feature, I don't think tracking it here is going to be useful. If someone starts working on lower level bits please feel free to re-open this request to plumb it through virt-manager.
