a bit about Free software, a bit about graphics, a bit about design, a bit about photography, a bit about gadgets, a bit about life and many more
I told you already that today I am in a screencasts creation frenzy, so here is one more, a screencast about creating screencasts with Istanbul (this one inspired by a talk on the Fedora marketing list):
I notice there was a bit of a lag:1) when you were drawing the happy face , etc2) When you were choosing the font from the drop downCould you please post what hardware you are running and if it includes a designated Video card? and if so what kind and are you using a binary driver?Thanks
I just have one question, how do you propose non-Linux users watch the videos?I'm running into this problem. Showing friends/family how to switch to Fedora, however, I have to do the ogg thru mencoder to avi switch. Not a problem, just curious if you have another solution.
@anonymous: the problem is Istanbul... it uses a high compression ration which is quite a lot of CPU intensive. For a much smoother experience one can use gtk-RecordMyDesktop with video quality at 100%.As for my hardware specs -on boaard Intel graphics, but it is all about CPU and compressing the video.
@brett: put your friends/family on VLC on Windows, is much better as a general purpose video player (will play anything you throw at it, including OGG Theora). That until Firefox will be able to play OGG Theora out-of-the box, we need videos on this format to help the Mozilla guys with the initiative.
