Hey guys. So I switched to ununbu, and so far, I LOVE IT! There are a few small things that I dont love but overall, i like it much more than win7. Anyway, I was just wondering, for my youtube channel, I like to do coding timelapses and whatnot, and im wondering what screen recorder is best. I have RecordMyDesktop or whatever its called.. but i kind of hate it. You have to select the recording region based on a tiny little image of your desktop and its very difficult to get it right. So, what screen recorder is best? Also, is there any good replacement for fraps?

Check out Kazam. It's in the repos. I use it for all my Praxis screencasts.

I use recordmydesktop together with xwininfo in a script for all of my videos. You'll see what the script does, when you run it:
1  
2  
#!/bin/bash
recordmydesktop -windowid $(xwininfo |grep "Window id:"|sed -e "s/xwininfo\:\ Window id:\ // ;s/\ .*//" ) --no-sound --workdir ${PWD##*/rmd} -fps 60 -o $1


Well, I'll tell you what it does: You can click on a particular window, and it'll get the region of the window position and size and record that region.

Hey guys if you think this is the wrong place for it I guess I'll start another thread but do you really like linux compared to windows 7? I came from using a mac and loved it but having some java problems and my mac being around 7 years old i switched over to a newer pc with windows 7, and quite honestly I dont really like it....what do you think?

I like Linux, except that it can't run Paint.NET, and there are no equivalent programs. (Yes, I have heard of and used GIMP. It was a nightmare)

The only advantages Windows has over Linux are:
- More support. (And I think most people here have heard stories about tech support. Sad)
- More newb-friendly. But once you get used to Linux, it's fine.
- Already installed on most computers.
- Don't have to deal with all the 'open-source' garbage.

Idk why you think GIMP is a nightmare, it's pretty simple to use.
I love linux, ubuntu is awesome, but I use windows because most software simply doesn't run on linux.

I spent at least 1 hour looking for Paint.NET alternatives.

My problem with (some) open source projects is that they try to copy programs that already exist and end up being a slow, feature-lacking clone.

I realise this isn't for everything, some open source projects are good, but there is a fair amount of junk out there.

I'm all for available source, just not open source.

Linux is just kinda unstable especially about hardware related problem. Somehow I can deal with it until now and use single boot linux only.

Yesterday I installed it alongside my Windows 7 via http://linux.about.com/od/dist/gr/dstwubi.htm

It works really well and now my computer has two OSes to work with.  Having a start-up screen (text, rather) let me choose between two OSes is really cool.  Only downside I can see is that the max hard drive space for your Linux/Ubuntu OS is 30 GB.  It just means I can't really use it for lots of gaming.  It's really good for testing multi-platform though and well worth it if you want to try it out.  Eventually you could ditch Windows all the way after you've used it for awhile.

Is Pinta any good?

I'm all for available source, just not open source.

I'm sorry, but WTF does that actually mean?

Well, I guess you'd better not be using libGDX or LWJGL, or Eclipse / NetBeans, or Java 7+.  And you'd better not be using a decent web browser to look at this site, or using this site at all.  Wink

I realise this isn't for everything, some open source projects are good, but there is a fair amount of junk out there.

Works both ways!  My number one answer when people ask me what Linux offers that Windows doesn't - No longer having to pay for shit that doesn't work.  We get all our own shit that doesn't work, for FREE!  Grin

Pinta was the first one I tried. GIMP was better.

The next part, lots of people will disagree with. I accept that, but I don't want to argue over it. Keep your disagreements to yourself please.

Here is what I think of open source:

- Source is available to anyone. Good idea. Helps learning, bug finding etc.
- Free. If it weren't free, opensource would be pointless.
- Redistributable. If it's free then no harm can come from redistributing it.
- Modifiable AND redistributable. This is where I begin to disagree.

Projects should only be modified and redistributed if:
a) The project is abandoned. (Which happens a lot)
b) The project is a 'framework/base' for other projects. (eg: Linux Kernel)

That's all I have to say for now.

So, you basically want open-source without the most important benefit that open-source brings?  I thought your first comment was funny - this one's hilarious!  Wink

For a start, how do you define "abandoned" anyway?  On who's say so?

Personally, I'm all for the GitHub approach - fork, fork and fork away.  I think it's highly important that distributors are allowed to fix bugs and add features, and usually they make their way back upstream.

Taking an example of OpenOffice / LibreOffice.  Even before the LibreOffice fork, most Linux distros shipped a modified build of OpenOffice that contained a range of additional features and bug fixes.  Should that not have been allowed?  Should the fork of LibreOffice not have been allowed, despite the fact that this has resulted in the project developing much more rapidly?

Personally, I'm glad you're not making the rules!  Grin

One person's "abandoned" is another person's "finished"...

ffmpeg will do the job if you know how to mess with its parameters.
