Default recording VGA output

It's that son of mine again!

Now he needs to give "presentations". Musical pieces from Samplitude (maybe Cubase as well). He needs to record the screen in realtime and preserve "pointers" to parts in the music, like the screen shot walkthru's you get in the mags' but a movie.

So far I have found my old Compaq E500 laptop will record RCA comp' video and sound over to a domestic DVD/Harddrive recorder. Dubbed onto DVD that will play back on a pc but..
1) The picture quality is awful (as is the output on screen from the lappy).
2) The recording will not play in Win Media Player and we really need it to do that.

We have a time limited app' called "Quick Screen Recorder" That works ok but causes the pc to be jerky trying to run the app' and Sam at the same time. If I could get the signals out of one pc, running Sam and into another, running the app' that would be great I think. IF! That could be done over a 100mb/s LAN ...SOOOpurb!

Camtasia is pretty useful.

You can do this with VLC - http://www.videolan.org/



You could then use Windows Movie Maker to add the audio mix-downs from Samplitude or Cubase or any other audio to the video using Windows Movie Maker.

Thanks chaps.
We have got Camtasia up and running. We were missing some codecs apparently.

Ah yes, there's a free codec on the Camtasia website that covers that problem I believe. It's a while since I used it.

Not that this is much help to you...

But mac users with Snow Leopard, you can do this in QuicktimeX. It's the best feature about the update. Only catch is that the fram rate is low, probably to appease film studios worried about people screen ripping films..
