Sometimes I think “I really need an app that does x“, and then ten minutes later I’ve found an app that does x. And it’s free!
That’s not what happened with xvidcap, but it was pretty close. I needed something that would create a screen capture video, and xvidcap does just that. It only took a few minutes to find, but the 1.1.4 RPM package I installed from the Fedora livna repository segfaulted as soon as I tried to do a capture. I built the more recent 1.1.5 release from source, and that worked fine.
And yeah, that means there will be some videos up soon.
