I've been having difficulties getting gtk-recordmydesktop to run properly in Fedora 12. It has a truly awful frame-rate (Maybe 1 frame every three or so seconds). I didn't have any problem running it in Fedora 11 on the same computer so I am somewhat puzzled as to what could cause this. Any suggestions?
Here are my settings if it helps:
Overwrite existing files: off
Working directory: /tmp (My /tmp partition is 2GB)
Frames Per Second: 15
Encode on the fly: off
Zero Compression: on
Quick Subsampling: off
Full shots at every frame: off (Toggling this seems to make it so when I maximize windows they only partially show up in the video)
Mouse Cursor: Normal
Follow Mouse: off
MIT-Shm extension: on
Include Window Decorations: on
Outline capture area on screen: on
Reset capture area: on
Extra options: (blank)
Here is some possibly related information, but I'm not sure, just posing it in case it is useful:
When I try to run recordmydesktop from the terminal window it outputs this error roughly every couple of seconds: Broken pipe: Overrun occurred.
I tried istanbul as well but after recording when it pops up the save prompt it always crashes. The Automatic Bug Reporting Tool reports that it closes cause: "Process was terminated by signal 6"
Let me know if there is anything else I should post to clue in on the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
