recordmydesktop – audio not in sync

Nice application!

Normally one could use the GUI (gtk-recordMyDesktop) but I had a small problem: audio and video was not in sync. I worked around via specifying my headset on the command line tool directly via

 -device plughw:0,0

Thats it!

recordmydesktop --width 800 --height 640 --v_quality 20 --s_quality 10 --delay 3 --fps 10 --overwrite --device plughw:0,0 -o timefinder-v4-screencast.ogv

If this does not work for you look here, here, here or try to disable compiz via System -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Visual Effects

and include –no-wm-check

Or use the command where I got the best results:


recordmydesktop --width 1024 --height 800 --v_bitrate 2000000 --s_quality 10 --delay 1 --fps 20
--overwrite --device plughw:0,0 --no-wm-check --buffer-size 65538 --freq 48000 --quick-subsampling
--on-the-fly-encoding -o timefinder-v4-screencast.ogv

To convert this into a youtube video do:

mencoder -idx timefinder-v4-screencast.ogv -ovc lavc -oac mp3lame -o timefinder-v4-screencast.avi

or

ffmpeg -i timefinder-v4-screencast.ogv output.mpg

To cut sth. from the video you can do:

ffmpeg -vcodec copy -i timefinder-v4-screencast.ogv -ss -00:00:10 -t 00:07:11 output.ogv

On blip.tv you don’t need this! Simply upload!

  1. Actually all is fine (without any other setup) if you call recordmydesktop via

    recordmydesktop –width 1024 -height 800 –v_bitrate 2000000 –s_quality 10 –delay 1 –fps 20 –overwrite -device plughw:0,0 –no-wm-check –buffer-size 65538 –freq 48000 –quick-subsampling –on-the-fly-encoding -o timefinder-v4-screencast.ogv

    After this simply upload to blip.tv. Nothing more was necessary for me🙂
