Capturing CeeBot video 8 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 0  
I want to capture some videos of Ceebot action from the PC screen.

Do you have any advice on programs to use for this, settings etc?

For capturing videos, I have tried out various programs. It looks as if software solutions can not do this, it is too demanding for current CPUs. I do this using a hardware USB TV and video capturing device from Pinnacle, with two computers. The first one runs CeeBot, the video signal goes to an S-Video plug. The S-Video signal is digitalized in the second computer through the hardware device in MPEG2-format, DVD resolution, this is enough for a nice demo.

However, I realized that PowerPoint can not play MPEG-2 videos, at least not on most computers; everything gets stuck. I convert first to .avi using Ulead MediaStudio, and then to wmv using Windows Movie Maker, which PowerPoint can display.

Hi, Jeff,

if you are happy with a result like this (7 MB avi)
http://www.ceebot.org/index.php?option=com_remository&Itemid=53& func=startdown&id=2

I used the demo-version a the game recorder from http://www.zdsoft.com/. I had to fiddle a bit with the recorder's setting to get the result, which still suffers from a low frame rate. But i am using a 3 yr old PC and an ANCIENT video card, and I expect you to get much better results with a more recent video card.

Hope this helps

Martin

This sound like a possible solution.
Thanks .. I'll try this when I have a moment.
