New installation in Windows 7 Enterprise
I have downloaded and installed V2.6 r294 and this app looks REALLY SLICK. I was able to get a nice quality screen video capture with audio working with almost no effort. Then came my effort to get the filesize down.
Here is what I ran into:
1) In changing the microphone audio settings, I found that the settings are not saved on exit as they should be. I cannot get it to remember my 11kHz 16 bit mono preference for instance. I made sure to launch the tool as Administrator and this had no impact.
2) Given that the UI works and video files are created properly, I guess I don't need to install the Visual Studio runtime libraries. But if I did need then, what version of the redistributable libraries would I need?
3) One of the instructional videos recommended installing VFW video and ACM audio codecs from the K-Lite Mega Codec pack (Full version), but that pack no longer seems to include the codes - at least by those names. What codecs should I use, and where should I get them?
FWIW, my goal is to create recordings of software demonstrations on my PC, so the screen content will changed fairly slowly, and phone-quality audio is just fine. As you can probably guess, the smaller the file, the better. I used to have access to a web collaboration tool that would regularly generate recording files for 60 minute demonstrations that were less than 100MB in size. Hopefully this tool can accomplish something similar...
Kudos on this great product and great support site - wish I was able to find answers to the above during my search efforts, and thus avoid bothering you.
Thanks for your time,
