>my actual face when Windows doesn't have a first-party or open-source screen recording tool anno domini year of our lord 2014
CamStudio is flagged as malware by every AV
OBS sporadically covers the bottom right of the screen with black bars
screen-capture-recorder just plain fails to record
Windows Media Encoder is from a decade ago and has sub-GIF quality
I forget why Expression Encoder didn't work but it didn't
ShadowPlay only records full-screen, DirectX programs if you have a laptop
This is ridiculous. Do you know how easy it is to do a screencast on Linux?ffmpeg -f x11grab -video_size 1920x1080 -framerate 60 -i $DISPLAY -c:v libx264 -preset ultrafast out.mkv. If you use Wayland+Weston, it's even simpler; you just press Super+R.
Please, I really want to know. Does a screencast tool exist for Windows that
- is either from a first party (OS developers, driver developers, etc) OR is fully open-source and preferably libre
- can output lossless or virtually lossless video at native resolution at 60fps without any bugs
tried that, and mpeg2, huffyuv, ffv1...
including to a ramdisk
i use hardly any disk and cpu time, i think it's more the speed ffmpeg's scraping x11, but i'm not sure
i can for example, do 30fps even recording straight to vp8
>Huh. That's really strange.
yea, i can get it higher by scaling down the image, but still won't go up to 60
you can see here the cpu usage is even under 100 (out of a maximum of 800)
also "IORW" in htop tells the disk usage, in this low size/bitrate mode, it's using a mere 62KB/s
i'm starting to wonder if ffmpeg is lying to me
this clip certainly seems to be 60fps, despite the ffmpeg output
both 60, but that doesn't say much
i also stepped through the video frame by frame, and there's no dupes
so perhaps the only issue is the encoder not showing me '60fps' while it runs

And OBS limits the resolution to 1536x864 (at higher resolution, there are black bars where the rest of the screen should be).
But hey, why read the OP when you can just make yourself look like a retard right off the bat?
Great, thanks for the help!
I can't wait to go back to a real operating system.
