wex installed via synaptic tonight virtualbox. unfortunately not enough memory to screencast. I will try again.
wiak, IMO, it would be better to create an app for screencast, another for webcam, another for audio.. Just an opinion..
about extensions MP4 is so common. MKV no opinion, my videos are only with smartphone.
dotpets : you mean pets ? What is differents between dotpups and dotpets ? that is OK.

NEWS: Mike Walsh has kindly created an All-In-One dotpet for weX, which
includes fredx181's portable app version of ffmpeg, as well as scrox, and weav, and
fredx181's gifenc-sel (for creating animated gifs either from within weX or run
separately). Mike says it will run on most Pups from old 5.x series and up to latest.(...)

HHEELLPP!!

Will anyone be as kind as to tell me what your weX is and does in plain English?

IBM has a "Watson Explorer", "wex" for short, at https://www.ibm.com/products/watson-explorer,
but it's obvious you people are NOT talking about a kind of "Christopher Columbus"
for data,

If it is a replacement for mplayer or mpv, why not say so off the bat?

Does it have a real web site? NOT A GITHUB PAGE, please. A real web site.

Does anyone have real screen captures to share, of weX in operation? Please, NOT
criticism or explanation screen captures, such as hamoudoudou's above; screen caps
of weX while it is doing what it is supposed to do.

Thank you for minding about us negligible little insects who know nothing.

BFN.

Hi, musher0.

In plain English (as requested) WeX takes screenshots, makes screen captures, and can then process the screen capture videos you've created in various ways, or turn them into a GIF file.

It's like a combination of PupSnap, SimpleScreenRecorder and Fredx181's GIF creator, 'gifenc-sel', which uses a simple YAD GUI 'front-end' for built-in ffmpeg functions. But a lot easier on resources, believe me. It makes use of Will's fork of scrot, scrox.....and it includes a fairly up-to-date compilation of ffmpeg, which Fred's put together.

For the combination of functions it provides, it's very lightweight, in the best traditions of Puppy.....especially since it doesn't require the Qt stuff that SimpleScreenRecorder needs. Oh, it also has the ability to embed a small webcam 'feed' into the corner of your videos...

-------------------------------------

Will McEwan's included comprehensive instructions as to how you use it. (You can't really give screen captures of a screen-capture app in operation; it could be of absolutely anything. (Think about it...?))

Nowt mysterious about it! D/l it, take a look, try it out. Let us know what you think of it, please.


Mike. Wink

UPDATE

19/07/18:- The 'all-in-one' has been re-uploaded. It now includes a third desktop entry, for starting Fred's 'gifenc-sel' directly from the Graphic Menu, since it will create GIFs from any short video clip.....not just those created by WeX. (Fewer mouse-clicks than opening from within WeX via the shortcut buttons..!)

Look for 'GIF-Creator' in the Graphic Menu.

New link is available in the original post:-

(Don't forget to install xterm from your Pup's PPM.)
