Your KAZAM video features YUV444P pixel format which WMP may not support without extra filters. Using ffmpeg, run ffmpeg -i in.mp4 -pix_fmt yuv420p -c:a copy -movflags +faststart out.mp4 You can also use ffmpeg itself to capture screen and sound on linux. Basic syntax would be ffmpeg -f v4l2 -i VIDEO -f alsa -i AUDIO -pix_fmt yuv420p -b:a 64k cap.mp4 ...

x264 is the best-in-class encoder for generating H.264 video streams and you can use it via ffmpeg, a command-line tool, to encode to a small-sized file. Get a binary from here - opt for the latest nightly/snapshot release - and run ffmpeg -i input.mov -c:v libx264 -crf 23 output.mov The output will be the same constant frame rate as the input but x264 is ...

If you're using Ubuntu or any other Linux distribution, I'd recommend recordmydesktop. You can install it in Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install recordmydesktop Afterwards, run it from a terminal, using the desired filename as an argument: recordmydesktop tutorial23.ogv Stop recording by pressing Ctrl + C in the terminal.

Try lossless encoding with ffmpeg First, with YUV444P ffmpeg -f gdigrab -framerate 60 -i desktop -crf 0 -pix_fmt yuv444p -preset ultrafast yuv-cap.mp4 If not clear enough, ffmpeg -f gdigrab -framerate 60 -i desktop -c:v libx264rgb -crf 0 -pix_fmt bgra -preset ultrafast rgb-cap.mp4 These will likely not be compatible with most video editors, but if the ...

H264 is actually a pretty good codec for such content. Its based on motion vectors and you can define in which intervals the codec should encode a full frame, everything in between will be based on the last and next keyframe (simplifying here). x264 is probably the best h264 encoder out there and luckily open source. Probably the best way to use it is ...

I think it is mostly a structural thing. Games generally involves simple interaction with a lot of similar content. Hardware devices have a physical interface and while they can run lots of different software, the capabilities of the device are reasonably easy to describe. For general productivity software, the interactions are complex, but not so deep, ...

MKV does not store a frame rate in its container. So ffmpeg/vlc looks at the default duration of a frame instead. It sees 33.333ms and does the math, which is where your weird number comes from. For more information, see: https://gitlab.com/mbunkus/mkvtoolnix/wikis/Wrong-frame-rate-displayed To test this out, you can run ffprobe with -show_frames. I think ...

I know you looked at ScreenFlow. Were you looking at the latest version--ScreenFlow 4? It does have some vectorial shapes (they're called Annotations): Line (arrow) Line Square (filled) Square Circle Now, that doesn't get you speech bubbles and other abstract shapes. For those, you can use a text box with an image fill--unfortunately, you've got to supply ...

I had very similar requirements and eventually found on Claquette. It's an OS X app that uses a lossless codec. While it doesn't allow you to define a screen area before recording, it has a crop feature that allows you to select a region after the recording is finished. Audio can also be turned off. Movies can be exported in various formats (including h.264, ...

On OS X, seems like ScreenFlow can record in lossless (not by default, but this can be enabled in settings). Unfortunately, this application is not free. Still looking for free alternatives… Important update! This applies only to Screenflow 4.5.3 (and maybe some earlier versions). In Screenflow 5 this feature is gone. They advertise like they can do lossless ...

If you have a Mac, give ScreenFlow a try. It offers lossless screen recording which can be exported for use in Premiere or other NLE's and it's inbuilt editing is pretty good too for quick edits.

I'd say fewer people may be interested in this than in fancy electronic gadgets but there is no technical reason not to review software. It's actually a lot easier as you don't have all the complications that come with shooting "real-life" footage. There are actually quite a few people reviewing mobile apps with huge success. I'd say mostly the general ...

You have two options, one, install software on the presenter's system that can encode and send a video feed to another system. This is in-effect going to be a screen casting application, even if the feed is only forwarded to another system to be packaged. The other option is to actually capture the raw output from the presenter's system through a frame ...

BEFORE I would say onetruemedia.com It HAD a great online video editor, but that was bought out by disney and then shut down. (Disney just wanted the tools in one of their software bundles) Currently I would say videotoolbox.com Not the most intuitive, actually a very poor user interface. But it has the crop feature you are looking for, not easy to find. ...

AutoScreenRecorder (currently version 3.1) appears to allow you to record as low as 1 frame per minute in the Pro version only (the free version does not allow altering the framerate).

Apparently Youtube took some extra time to process the HD. Both are showing in HD now.

Modern video codecs are already very good at dealing with temporal redundancy. You probably don't need to do anything extra unless you're targetting an extremely low bitrate. You could probably go down to 10fps without having things look bad, and that should help. I guess you want to leave the resolution fairly high, so it's easy to read the chalk board. ...

This is an issue for me too. You need a multi-pronged technique: Choose the quietest room. If street noise is an issue, which room is furthest from the street? Many people have offices and desks, but record in a child's room while that child is at school. Arrange yourself facing into a corner (for echo reasons) and surround yourself with soft stuff as much ...

Probably because TV and CRTs scanned from the top left. Video cards store the screen buffer in this order, too, so scan-out from the screen buffer in left-to-right, top-to-bottom reads sequentially increasing memory addresses. Addressing video RAM as a 2-dimensional array extern int32_t screenbuf[480][640]; screenbuf[0][0] = RED; would modify the top-...

I can't rule out specialized hardware devices that might be able to, but 1080p video at 1000fps produces 6GBps of raw data at 8 bit color. That's 48 gbps, which exceeds the highest standards of most current connectors. Display port 1.4 is just shy of 26gbps and barely covers half of the needed data rate for a 1000fps 1080p data stream. You might be able ...

Open Broadcaster Software is a (good) Free and open source software for video recording and live streaming. Download and start streaming quickly and easily on Windows, Mac or Linux.

Cropping is carried out using a video filter. Also, a filtered video has to be re-encoded. So the command would be ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -vf crop=1824:1026 -t 39 -c:a copy output.mp4 See the docs for the crop filter for all options.

Fraps also allows you to record at any frame rate you want. Though the free version has watermarks in its recordings.

OBS is what I use to record my screen. It is mainly for streaming to websites like twitch but they put a functionality of recording the stream as its going that records in lossless. Also you don't need to be streaming to record. Better than any program I have ever used, it's free, and you can change the frame rate! Note: look up on YouTube how to setup your ...

Recording full screen, if your hardware allows you to do it smoothly, is your best option. You can always crop or mask out unwanted areas later in editing. You won't have that freedom if you crop the input at the time of recording. An exception to this rule of thumb can be made if you're absolutely sure that the area of interest is a portion of the screen at ...

The term you're looking for is 'lower third'. Here's a tutorial from the software publisher on how to do that.

ffmpeg will do everything you request. It can capture both the screen and the video input, compose that to a single image, and stream it... You should look at it... Its a command line utility, but very well documented
