Screen Capture for DivX files.

Q: Screen Capture for DivX files.

Im trying to screen capture some images from a DivX file, but since the video is runnin in overlay mode, nothing I do seems to work. I've used PowerDVD and WinDVD, but they won't capture AVI files for some reason. Paint Shop Pro doesn't work either. Are there any programs out there that will allow me to screen grab from an .avi file? THanks

A: Screen Capture for DivX files.

Hit the pause on the DivX player and the hit print screen.

Also you can get this.

Just make a folder for it and and download the BSPlayer version 0.86.501 ZIP. I just upzipped to the folder to keep all files in one place and ran it from there without having to install it.

Hi. I have been using Divx for the past 3-4 years to convert .avi files to Divx to be played on my Phillips DVD player (which plays Divx files).

For the past couple of months I've been having problems with the DivX Player that burns the files onto dvds - it just doesn't work. I can load the files like normal, it shows me that it's transferring, and after anywhere from 30 seconds to 1 1/2 minutes, it tells me transfer has been completed, when in actuality, nothing has been done.

I have contacted Divx about this, and have received no suitable solution to this problem. I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Divx+, as well as older version of Divx, but all to no avail.

One of the features I liked about Divx was the ability to fit multiple files onto one dvd (I could fit anywhere between 4-6 movies). And, of course, the fact that we could view these films on our regular TV, via our Divx compatible DVD player.

I don't know if you're aware of this problem. If you are, do you have any recommendations as to how to deal with it?

If not, could you recommed another converter/burner that will allow me to burn multiple files onto a dvd to be played on my dvd player?

Thank you.

Thing is I would like to do this without having to re-encode the entire file. Is what I want to do even feasible?

Hi all, i'm new. So this question is probably in the wrong place...apologies:)

I downloaded a video and it came in about 20 small parts all marked .divx-sfm (1-20).

divx (i have a slightly old version) wont play it. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the help!

A:divx-sfm files (video)

Seems like this was a multipart download. My guess is that there's some sort of archiving program (sort of similar to Winrar parts maybe?) that will link all of these files together into something a media player can understand. I think a google search for 'sfm archive' would be a good place to start.

Hi All,

I'm not sure if I'm in the right forum here, but hope you can help.

I am trying to use quicktime pro (v 7.6.6) to play some avi files. The main reason I want to use quicktime is because it can convert for ipod easily.

The files I want to play are all avi files using the DX50 codec. This is a divX codec, and I have the latest DivX software installed. The files will play in Windows Media, and the DivX player, but not in quicktime. Any ideas why?

Running Windows XP SP3

Hello guys! I’m just new around here. So here’s the matter… I’ve just downloaded the movie that I really want to watch. I want to play it through a dvd player (MINAMI dvd player) using my USB. The quality and sound was good, but the only little problem is that it was kinda slow (or I think it has something to do with the bitrate) and it was not so enjoyable to watch. So I tried to convert it to divx/avi and edited few settings including the bitrate (which I believe may solve the problem) using the E.M. Total Video Converter. When I played it through the dvd player, at first I thought that my problem was solved… until 2 minutes later, the movie stopped and went back again to the beginning. Is there a problem with the converter? Because whenever I edit the settings of the movie, I would always expect some problems. I would appreciate any kind of help. Thanks!
 

A:Problems with converted divx/avi files...

DVD players with Divx support (which sounds like what you are using to play the files) have very strict limitations on file specs.

I have a .Divx file that plays fine on VLC player, but it wont play on my DivX player unlike my other divx files... I have downloaded many "DivX to DVD Converters" (many of which are really just AVI converters and not actually convert DIVX themselves) however I have tried Xilisoft Divx-to-DVD converter / WinAVI 8.0 / AVI DivX MPEG to DVD Converter & Burner Pro..
to no avail...

is there a program that actually does what it says on the tin>? all these 'DivX converters' should be called AVI converters as thats the only file they convert...Iam aware that some AVIs are encoded using DIVX but they shouldnt be called 'DIVX converter' if all it converts is AVI files...

What do I do now,?

I also have a movie with subs (SRT file) and burn em both to disc and my player says no subtitles even though it asks me if i would like to have them on at beggining?

Hi ellisd5, as far as i'm aware Divx is not Vista compatible but don't quote me on that. Best thing I can suggest is to download and install the latest stable release of K-Lite codec pack as that may restore normal functionality to your avi files (be sure to remove any currently installed codec packs first though).

hi, i am having 2 problems with video i suspect might be related:
both started at or recently after i had to reboot my windows from disc due to a massively debilitating virus/malware attack.

1. I am no longer able to play divX webplayer movies, if i try to stream divx in FF or IE it instantly crashes my browser.
My stand alone divx player works fine. I have tried reinstalling divx several times and even tried an archive version with no success.

2. When i am watching full screen streaming video the video will without cause minimize to small screen, the video continues to play.

I have updated all my drivers ( i think) as i suspected my video card as the culprit..but so far no success and i am really annoyed at this point, especially since divX videos are one of my fav formats for web vids....and the minimizing screen thing is driving me crazy...please, please somebody more knowledgeable than me help

I saw your other post and you may still be infected. Even if you're not, this kind of thing is frequently an after effect of the malware. So there may not be a solution short of reinstalling Windows.

I know that Ctrl+Print Screen will capture the whole screen and that Alt+Print Screen will capture the active most forward window. Here is my problem:

Many of the screens I wish to capture involve right clicking or displaying a menu-item. It is very, very difficult to do Ctrl+Print Screen or Alt+Print Screen while holding and clicking with a mouse (my Print Screen key on this keyboard is way over above my numeric pad and I have small hands). Does anyone know of any shortcuts or ways to do this that don't involve me needing three hands?

While I can get such approval, I'd rather not have to jump through those hoops if it isn't 100% necessary.

Hello all!
Ever since I joined the HJT Training Program, I have been longing for a good screen capture program. Yes, I know I can use Shift+PrintScrn and paste it into paint, but when you make screenshots regularly, that is kind of a pain.

Another thing that would be nice would be video capture of the display, but in such a way that would be easy to dump on youtube.

The only program that I have found is FRAPS, which does much more than I need, and is $100, which I am not prepared to spend on a image capture program.

Oh, and I'm on Vista Ultimate 32Bit.

Screen capture software, such as what is built in with Windows of "snipping tool"....... what do you use and what do you like about it?

Free, opensource, paid, etc. Doesn't matter, explain why you like what you use.

Anyone aware of anything where you can CTRL + C and then CTRL + P into a Windows Explorer folder and it will create a PNG or JPG file and then you simply rename it?
 

A:Screen Capture - What do you use?

Windows + PrintScreen = full screen, Alt + PrintScreen = current window

Aside from that if I need something specific I'll just capture it all then crop it down after pasting it into Paint or Paint Shop Pro 7.04 'cause it's fast and I can do it in a few seconds start to finish. I know what the snipping tool is and I have honestly never used it, not once.

I can't imagine using a third party application just to do a screen capture when that functionality has been built-in for so long it's not even funny.

Those of you who have used some of my tutorials know that I like to make tutorials in videos. So I was wondering how I could do that in Windows8. There are two screen capture programs I usually use of which one worked perfectly. The other one had a little problem which I will try to clarify with the owner of the program.

Here is the . Watching it directly from there usually works better than watching it from the embedded screen and it allows you to run the video full screen which does not seem to work with the embedded link.

HI, I have tried to capture streaming audio using several applications now and I always end up with the same result. It seems to be recording away and even produces large size files (wave or MP3) BUT when i go to play the files back I get...silence. I have tried configuring my computer every which way. I have never had any sound probs before, whether ripping CDs, recording from mic, line-in from records, you name it.... until now.

Back in the days of Windows 95-to-98 I tried several screen capure apps.  I remember the
computer magazines alway rated Techsmith Snagit as the best.  I guess a lot of readers
liked this app, but it was a disaster for me.  Nothing worked right, it was a mess.
My favorite was Print Screen Deluxe until Windows XP came along.  When I dragged the
crosshairs to take a rectangular screenshot the results were not good.  The image captured
was always shifted left, right, up, or down.  It never captured the image inside the crosshairs!
Instead of contacting the author or posting about this problem I just stopped using Print
Screen.
I've got a couple of freeware screenshot apps that are ok, but they don't work perfectly all
the time.  Can someone recommend a good screen capture app, similar to the old Print Screen
Deluxe?

Hello all. First time poster here!
I have read other threads about screen capture issues. Either I'm missing the point or my problem has not been discussed in this forum. So hopefully I'm not duplicating efforts. If I am, I apologize. Limited IT experience and understanding.
First, I'm working with Microsoft XP Professional on a Dell.
I was working on a project and needed to obtain some screen captures of websites.
I started up the computer. Got to work. The frist two screen captures were taken and edited using MS Office Picture Manager without a hitch. Then I went to my thrid screen capture. Everything appeared to work fine until I got on the third screen capture. For some reason I could not bring up my screen capture. I pressed alt+print screen and then went to Pic Manager, selected "Edit" but the "paste" was not available.
I rebooted (always my first step in resolving issues) and I was able to get one screen capture into Pic. Manager and edit it. But nothing worked after that. I'm not sure where the issue is rooted. I remember using an application called DSUtilities when I used to work on Windows 2000 (I believe...) but I don't see that program anymore. Has it been phased out? Is there a step I'm missing here?
Any help would be appreciated. I hope I have provided enough information to garner some help. Thanks Tech Support Forum.

Hi, I've been using photoscape, a free program that edits photos for years and using it for screen captures. Well, I noticed that every time I tried to do a screen capture with it since yesterday the program would disappear from view, not get the screen capture and only be showing in the processes. I assumed there was something specifically wrong with the program after several attempts and having to end the process, as it was frozen. So, I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. Same problem. So, trying to screen cap a frozen frame on a streaming video I downloaded another program, another free program, to do it called screencapturer. Same prolem. Program disappears from view, no capture takes place. Exactly the same. So, I downloaded a firefox browser application that is meant to take screen captures. This time it worked, except it only gets the non-video portion of the page. The box or window with the video only shows up blacked out. I'm used to that happening with certain screen capture programs not getting the image in a video box but my tried and true capturer for the same purpose, the Photoscape, what could be causing that and the other program to be incapable of getting a cap of a video all of a sudden? Thanks for any input. I'm not away of any change to my system since the last time I tried to use the program for this either.

I am looking for a good screen capture program so I can record video of the desktop.

Unlike many people who need something like this I need specifics.

1. Must be able to capture a full 1920x1080 display at a decent frame rate preferably 60 fps.

2. Must also be able to capture video in the highest possible quality.

3. Must be able to record "what you hear".

I want to record some tutorials for photoshop and other adobe apps and some for video editing software like sony vegas. This calls for the highest quality I can get really because the vids will be offered in full HD. I need the audio for the obvious reasons.

So far I have tried fraps with monitor aero desktop enabled and a variety of different setting. While it does capture in awesome quality it does not do it with a good frame rate. I get the choppiest video you have ever seen. It also has issues with 2 displays enabled. I only want to capture one not both and I don't want to disable one to do so.

I also tried snagit 10. Also good quality but poor results. Much like fraps it is resulting in choppy video. It is able to capture one full display by clicking on that region before recording which is great if it would work right.

I know this machine has the horsepower to do this so it is not a matter of not having the brute strength. It could be a matter of me not knowing what settings to use though. I wouldn't rule out the possibility that I just don't know what I am doing since I never tried actively capturin... Read more

Double Post FTW! LOL actually being the self help kind of guy I am I managed to solve this before I got a reply. I wanted to share my solution in case anyone else sees this and needs the same thing I did.

Camtasia which I have used years ago back on version 5 has actually come a long long ways. I am not beyond giving any particular software multiple chances to impress me.

Going back to camtasia this is what I found. Within less time than it takes to instal the program you can also learn basically everything you need to know about it. In under 1 minute I was able to make a test recording and play it back with outstanding results.

I was impressed by the way the application was able to recognize my main display the one i want to record on that is. Select it and also place the recording controls exactly where I would have placed them in the bottom corner of the secondary display. Seriously they thought of everything you would need.

I was impressed by how easy it was to output my video exactly the way I want it and with so little effort I was unsure it would get everything right. It did and it did it in record time at that.

You really couldn't ask for more from a piece of software. It is that damned easy and fast to use. I am totally happy with this and I imagine others would be also.

My test recording was absolute quality and with perfect speed. No loss of quality full 1080 HD. The resulting file is light for full HD as well. You can also do ALL of your edits within the app... Read more

I have expierimented with various "save-as" settings and have always chosen the options for best quality and although the pictures aren't too bad... there is still some of what I call "banding". The colors appear somewhat like a gradient... and you can see the different shades of color in a graduated pattern.

Is there a way to save your screen-captures so they look just same as you see when viewing them on the web page without any "loss"?

Hi all
I was just wondering if there was anyway of preventing people from capturing a screen image..

You can disable the mouse context menu (normally the right mouse click - or left if you've swapped the default mouse options) on an image to stop people from downloading it but I don't think you can prevent anybody from using the PRT SCR button or programs like snagit or the snipping tool to capture an image.

I'd like to do this since I want to issue some powerpoint lecture notes containing some pictures of propietary material which can be publicly viewed -- but I don't want these pics to be copied and possibly appear on other web sites.

Some type of internal "scambling" or encryption software would be great so that even if one did capture the screen via PRT SCR then on inserting the capture into another document it would just come out as garbled.

Any ideas anyone or is this just not possible.

(Of course the old fashioned way of actually taking a photo of the screen would always overcome any software scrambling / encryption or even using the screen capture on a Linux host machine running a Window Guest Virtual machine in "Windowed mode" - but I'm not worried about that type of attack - if people think of that type of "get around" then they are sophisticated enough to copy the documents anyway).

A:How to capture Screen Shots?

If you tap the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard, a screen capture of your entire desktop is copied to the Windows clipboard. If you hold down the "Alt" key and tap the "Print Screen" key, only the current active window will copy to the clipboard.

You can not paste directly from the clipboard to the SD card. You would first need to paste the clipboard contents into a suitable image editing program. You can then have the program save the file with the image anywhere you want.

EDIT: Certain programs may use an overlay method to display images and video on the desktop. These may show up as black boxes in the capture.

Ok, I've had it up to here with OBS.  It either doesn't record any video at all, only records a corner of the video, lags to hell and back any time there are any sudden movements in the game, or all of the above.
 
As far as the lag is concerned, I was told in a previous thread that my hard drive transfer speed might be the problem. But my hard drive can transfer up to 3.0GB/s! So that can't be the problem! Besides, I can record screen footage with camstudio no problem!
 
I want some screen capture software that meets the following criteria:
 
1. 100% totally free.
2. Records what happens on-screen. If the game automatically switches to full-screen, then that's what the software captures. If I can't see my taskbar or desktop, then I don't want the screen capture software recording it. No choppy framerate.
3. Records, frame-for-frame, exactly what I see on screen, at 60fps. If my character whip-pans, the screen capture shows a whip-pan.
4. It can record whatever I see on-screen, no matter what game or app I'm trying to capture. That's something that Shadowplay doesn't do.
5. Records mic and speakers ... together.
