I have been asked to release this by a few people, it is Dpup's desktop recorder (Drec).

Please be aware that it was designed in Dpup and uses the latest FFmpeg upgrade for Dpup with libx264 and libxvid in its transcoder...

I have been advised that it does work in Boxpup but I haven't personally tested it...It almost certainly will not work in Puppy 4.3.1. BE WARNED.

gposil,

very nice little app. I can report it works with p412, booted into RAM, providing libtheora.so.0 is added.

PostPosted: Fri 04 Dec 2009, 05:07    Post subject: drec with frugal Media-Pup  

Gposil,

Many thanks for this very useful pet package.

Thanks to scOttman for the convenient link for
the Libtheora package.

I've installed drec to Media-Pup and have found
that it works well, up to a point.

When recording a sizable stream, once the total
raw data capture approaches 180 MB, I get a
browser crash. I'm thinking this may be related to
memory available for data storage, since drec has
a built in default to root for the temporary files.

Although I can specify a hard drive location for the
finalized converted file, unfortunately, it isn't possible
to select a hard drive location for the raw data
storage (pre-conversion) as well.

Would it be possible to modify drec to permit
mounted hard drive locations for all operations?
Hopefully this would solve the 'crash' problem I'm seeing.

I'm not at all certain that what I think is happening
as described above is the real problem. Perhaps
others have experienced similar problems and have
found a solution for a frugal Puppy install.

I'd really appreciate getting any feedback with ideas
for overcoming my problem, or suggestions to
try various things to get it going full capability.

Whilst I haven't experienced the problem you mention, I have Drec recordings of 400+Mb and haven't had a problem yet, I can adjust Drec so you can choose the location of working files...

I'll get to it soon and post it here...

Gposil,

You're very kind. Many thanks.

I was running my frugal install of media-pup from a small
partition (1.8 GB) so, thinking that perhaps this might pose
a limitation, relocated my install to another drive partition
of 20+ GB.

Then I ran drec again to see if it made any difference, but,
alas it made almost none.

So the browser crashed, as before, and I continued to
allow drec to finish conversion of the data it had captured.

When it reported completion and success, I looked all
over the filesystem but could find no trace of either the
raw data files or the converted file. (Reported 800 MB)

So, now I'm thinking that drec may be incompatible with
media-pup (4.1.2r) so next I'll try it with some of the
other derivatives.

Have you any idea which of the derivatives might work
best?

Edit:

Sometimes, in retrospect, I'm absolutely amazed at
the 'denseness' of my thinking process.

Why not just try Dpup? Why didn't I think of this before?

See what I mean?

I've just downloaded Dpup 477 and will give it a run.




Looking forward to the 'modified' drec which
will enable setting locations for all the working
files!

Drec updated with working directory setting...see top of thread.


Remember for non-Dpup users, Drec requires a recent ffmpeg, with x264, xvid and theora support. (Dpup already has them)

Cheers

drec-2.0-i686-dpup.pet works straight out of the box in upup458 perhaps we could have the upgraded drec 2.1 from dpup as a pet?

Subject description: With Precise Puppies
 

Drec 2.0 still works perfectly in 2014.Here with brand new Pupjibaro based on Precise Puppy. The size is light, in spite of full screen is captured. I don't know how to capture only a part of the screen.
Post-processing is long enough. A file .ogv is temporari stored untill process end. Then video extension becames .avi (my choice)
On the screenshot here below toutou.avi is ready for use. Toutou2.ogv is in video labratory being processed. Depending on the length, it could last 10 minutes. Be patient. It's worth of it. The videos are getting really very light.
I use Desktop Recorder version 2.0. Version 2.1 had bugs with my computer (when choosing the sizes of video)
If menu does not exec, use terminal, dpuprec

Subject description: Choose an usual GTK+2 theme !
 

Drec is the most genial tool on earth !
"Please be aware that it was designed in Dpup and uses the latest FFmpeg upgrade for Dpup with libx264 and libxvid in its transcoder...
It almost certainly will not work in Puppy 4.3.1. BE WARNED. “

Gposil (creator of PPDB)

Drec works for all distros (mine) excepted ... Precise Puppy (5.4.3) ... Slacko 5.3.3 ????
Icewm seems to stop Drec, because ok on same distro with JWM (PolarpupQT_005)
A developer should get dpuprec running all distros, rather than creating new ones.

15 mns later : Choose an usual GTK+2 theme ! not yours added to Precise Razz
It's now quite perfect.
Choose 'root' as repertory of storage, because others change description depending distros,
Window manager seems essential too.
