Pet package of 'RecordMyDesktop' now available
I mentioned RecordMyDesktop back in post #169. I'm starting to get so I actually prefer it to SimpleScreenRecorder, simply because it takes less setting up, and to my mind, the resulting video file is smoother & less 'jerky' (although perhaps that's just my hardware!)
I've produced a .pet package of this, using all the required binaries/libs/deps etc. from the 'Trusty' build.....to create a totally self-contained app. For two reasons.....
One, I run various Pups that are not 'buntu-based, and (as I've stated many times before) I like to adhere to the Puppy maxim of 'choice in all things'. I happen to think this is a pretty neat screen-capture tool; I know many of you prefer SimpleScreenRecorder, but I just think this is nicer to use. I've tested this in Slacko 5.7.0 & Slacko 5.6.0, and it works perfectly. It also works, without incident, in Racy 5.5.
The other reason I put this together is because I've recently started using greengeek's 'VoxPup', based on Upup Raring (with experimental voice control). Okay, I know what you're thinking; 'Isn't this a 'buntu-based Pup?' Indeed it is.....but what y'all need to remember is that Upup Raring was based on Ubuntu 13.04 'Raring Ringtail', which was one of the intermediate, short-term versions between the LTS (Long Term Support) releases, which are supported for 5 years. These are only supported for 9 months, before the repos are archived, and become basically inaccessible to the public.
The upshot of this is that Raring's repos went off-line years ago (probably before I even joined the Puppy Forum back in June '14), and no longer connect, much less function. So, my 'Raring' has been set up entirely with .pet & SFS packages. And it works pretty well, too!
Do remember, as I stated above; the 'encoding' session which takes place after closure very often runs on to well over 100%, as reported by the progress bar. This appears to be perfectly normal; just be patient! I admit, it does seem to take rather longer in the Slackos than it does in the 'buntus.....but it still gets there (eventually!) Perhaps something 'extra' is required, although the terminal doesn't report anything missing. It does, however, function as intended.
The .pet for this is available from here:-
Feedback would be appreciated on this one, if anybody decides to give it a whirl.....
