The following steps sometimes result in a partial file which can't be played or some file with no sound
Media -> Stream -> Capture Device -> Capture Mode = Desktop -> Stream
- Then select destination
File = test.mp4, leaving
Profile = Video - H.264 + MP3 (MP4)intact, and setting FPS=24.
- Then press
Streambutton again. FLV player starts to count time, although
Recordbutton looks not pressed.
- Then i do some playback of web videos and window manipulations.
- Then press
Stopbutton on VLC player.
What are good ways to carry out a complete task? Where is the setup for recording audio?
Ok, this isn't about VLC but I'm guessing the real question is "How do I easily record my desktop, with audio, preferably with a free open source app?"
I gave up on obscure VLC command lines and found another piece of software called ShareX , which is free and open source.
It's very easy
- Download and install sharex.
- Run it and click Capture->Screen Recording...
- It asks you if you want to automatically download ffmpeg.exe, say yes.
- Next go to Task Settings->Capture->Screen recorder->Options
- Change the video source to screen-capture-recorder (it's a bit fast in my experience), and the audio source to your microphone (or whatever).
- Use capture->screen recording again.
- It will now even let you select the area of the screen to record!
This is much nicer than VLC. The only negative is that for me the colors seem a bit off - less bright than they were I'm not worried about it though
In recent versions you can hold
Shift to do square recordings and
Alt to snap to common resolutions.
