How does camstudio work?

edited October 2010 in Announcements
Really dumb question okay, how does a screen recorder 'record' the screen...? Just trying to fiddle with a few things to make it work a bit better or sumthin of the like. But the question is: how does it work?

Thanks!

  • This 'How' questions is not easy to explain.
    We do not have any design documents.

    For 'what' questions we have some papers, websites, wiki that explain what CS does and what is required as settings.

    'How' question requires some study of the code.

    Short functional answer for your how.
    CS grabs parts of your screen. Merge this frame with other data frames and write the frame to AVi.
    parallel create sound recording is merged with AVi afterwards.
  • Well I know that much, but thanks anyways : )
