gtkrecordmydesktop is not recording videos
Last modified: 2008-07-26 02:05:35 EDT
Description of problem:gtk-recordmydesktop is not recording most of the time.
When I click to stop recording it comes to encoding windows and freezes there. I
also tried to run apps in ssh -X toserver, and then recording, same result there.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.3.6-1
How reproducible: Just try record any session, fo rme it is failing 9 out of 10
It freezes in the encoding window.
It should record the video to the output file specified.
Additional info: The Fedora 7 version is working better condition like recording
in 50% times.
Thanks. I'm able to reproduce this behaviour. For me however, using
recordmydesktop (the command line) works just fine. As such I assume the issue
is with the gtk interface itself. I've contacted upstream to get to the bottom
