Screen Recording
« on: February 26, 2013, 10:37:19 am »
From the latest java GA5, it is now possible to run the screen recording program KRUT, to be found at . It works very well and stores movies in *.mov format. It seem require some more CPU power than my T43 can offer if you want to capture a full screen video smoothly. There is however a "follow mouse" option, which can be used if you choose a smaller area to be captured. On my sample movie I forget to move the mouse at some point and for a while you can't see me writing.

Would be nice to hear how it works for people with more powerful computers.

The sample movie is here:

Thanks Melf for letting us know. I will try it.

Let's see if we can upload some eCS-OS2 screen videos on YouTube easily :)

I didn't hear any sound in the video, Do you get this message in the console window?

Other than sound not working , It seems to work pretty good.

Yes, same message. Seems as sound is not implemented in Odin, .
