Video and screen capture: problem on win 7

Q: Video and screen capture: problem on win 7


I want to capture screen flow in video or image on windows 7 64 bits system, with NVidia Quadro 600 graphic card (driver is up to date). I use lib "VLC" for video capture, or "print screen" button for image capture.
When I try to capture a fullscreen opengl application, or a QML application, or WPF application, the captured image is black. It seems that graphic card content can't be acquired...
It is the same for each computer which is under windows 7.
This manipulation worked on windows XP.

what are the changes on screen capturing between windows XP and windows 7 ?
how can I resolve this problem ?
is there any option to activate in system ?
is there any software which could work (with an API) ?

Thank you very much,

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

A:Screen Capture (Video)

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

Yo guys.

Lately I have been producing lots of training videos. (desktop videos, about 40-60 minutes in length).

I have been using camstudio, but the files are so massive. (my latest 30 minute video was 500+ mb)

I was wondering what your favorite video recording software is?

Camtasia seems the best, but it's so damn expensive.

camstudio is free, but the files are too damn big.

Jing is cool, but the free version only has like 5 minute cap lol.

What are your thoughts?

I need a video-capture utility that will also let me record sound from the speakers. I want to capture a webcast for later review. (It's an online class that I teach, but I want to "sit in" on a class with a more-experienced instructor and learn from his presentation. He's fine with this. I've tried to get him to just record his presentation but he's busy and hasn't gotten around to agreeing to it.)

I've tried several utilities that claim to do this, but I can't make it work on any of them. I can record with the microphone, but the mic doesn't record the speakers very clearly. I'd much rather get the audio right off the sound card.

I'm beginning to wonder if this is even possible with my hardware. Apparently many manufacturers are blocking this capability to prevent people from ripping music illegally. I've tried it on an XP Home SP3 system with a Realtek HD card, a Vista Home Premium SP1 system with Conexant HD SmartAudio, and an XP VM in VMware. None of them seem to offer the speakers as an input option -- only the mic.

Is there any way to do this, if the mic is the only input shown? Would it work to patch the headphone jack into the mic jack, or is the signal the wrong level? I'd try it but I don't want to risk damaging my mic input.


A:Solved: Screen video capture with sound from speakers?

I kept digging on this, and I figured out that my VMware XP system has a "Stereo Mix" input device. This input device will allow me to record from the speakers. My XP SP2 desktop and my Vista laptop don't have equivalent devices, so apparently they can't record the speaker sounds.

Now I just need to find a capture tool that actually works. I tried CamStudio and it was unusable. Within 20 seconds of recording, the audio and video were 8 sec out of sync. I just hope that's not a limitation caused by VMware scheduling, or I'm hosed.

Worst case, it appears to be safe to patch the line-out (headphone) jack into the mic jack. I might have to do that.

Just wondered if anyone is having any problems capturing video through a camcorder connected via firewire. I have a Panasonic NV-GS50 and when I connected it to the PC for the first time it automatically installed the drivers built into Windows. It shows up in Devices and Printers but not in Windows Explorer or My Computer. No matter what video editing software I try I get a communication error when I try and capture video. I have tried Windows Live Movie Maker, Sony Vegas 9 & Adobe Premiere Elements 7.

Windows 7 has a built in Panasonic DV driver and a Generic DV driver, I have tried both without success. However I used XP and Vista built in drivers prior to the installation of Windows 7 without a problem.

If I can't resolve this I would be happy to use 3rd party video capture software just to get the footage onto the PC until improved drivers become avaialble. I would be interested to hear if other people have had similar problems and perhaps discovered a workround.

Hi, my question is concerning the software PCTV to go. I recently bought a new toshiba satellite laptop running windows vista. I installed the PCTV to go software and it worked for several days. Then a few days later while I was running the program, the computer just died. I re-booted, had difficulty opening the PCTV to go program a few times, ended up uninstalling it and re-installing it several times. Now when I double click on the icon, it acts like it's about to run, but no window ever opens.

When I look at Windows task manager, it says that program is running and using up a lot of resources, but there is no window anywhere. PCTV to go still works fine on my older computer (or at least as well as it ever did, which isn't great).

Is there a conflict with windows vista? Is there a corrupted file somewhere (again, I have uninstalled and reinstalled at least 4 times). Please help. Thank you.

I am having problems with video capture using a JVC GR-D20EK camcorder with a Firewire Cardbus Adaptor (IEEE 1394) to my Laptop running Windows XP, lots of RAM and diskspace.

I have tried with Videowave 3 and Windows Movie Maker software.

When I connect the software tells me it is connected and it recognises the camcorder as a JVC, the capture process begins, the tape rewinds, the camcorder begins to play the tape, I can view the images on the camcorder display but the computer fails to complete the capture and no images are displayed in the capture window of the software.

After a while the software times out and I get an error message. The message differs depending on what software I am using but is ammounts to "Unable to connect to the video device".

I have also tried to connect using Windows Explorer. The camcorder is listed as an AVC Compliant DV Camcorder. If I click on the folder I get the message "Initializing Capture" but after a while I get the message "Creation of Video Preview Failed. Please check the device connection and make sure the device is not being used by another application user".

Obviously I have tried all connections many times. I have also tried connecting from cold reboots with the camcorder switched off, switched on and all other combinations. The result is always the same.

Has anyone any ideas please?
It's driving me crazy, even crazier than before!

Hello all. I'm a new subscriber. The Title is 'Partial Problem' because I use a TV Wonder video and TV card in my PC. I use it mostly for video capturing from a VCR. It works great with Windows Movie Maker, I use it every day, I get my audio from my Line in jack. I record programs and tapes from my VCR never a problem.

Somehow, other softwares don't find my Capture Card, even the actual TV Wonder software that I use to initialize the card in the first place. I get a message, 'No Video Capture Device detected'.

I've been in the Device Manager, it is there, I even double clicked on it and it says the device works properly (as I know it does when I'm in Movie Maker).

I'd have to start from scratch to be sure but I think my TV Wonder software works fine with my Capture Card when I first initialize it.

I'm not 100% sure but I think that it was only when I started using Movie Maker that the TV Wonder software stopped recongnizing the card.

Any help would be good. I ususally find a resolve myself when a problem occurs but I thought I'd go out and find suggestions from others who might have some ideas.

I have a MiniDV HC52 Sony Camcorder, and I want to capture the video onto my computer.

I connect it via firewire, plug the camera into its AC adapter, and then turn the camera on.

So it said it had finished the capture, and it finalized it, and it was done.

Since then, whenever I plug the camera into the computer, it detects it for a moment, I hear the little sound that something's been connected, and then before I get a chance to do ANYTHING, it disconnects.

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 currently trying to connect my analogue camcorder to my computer.
I have the necessary cables and program, but I have doubt about the S-Video hole on my computer. It's a newish computer and the S-video hole (sorry about the word 'hole', but it's the only one that's come to mind at the moment) came with the computer (right next to were the monitor connects, so I'm assuming its part of the graphics card).
I'm also assuming that it is part of a video capture device (yer, I'm confused). I've tried connecting my camera with the aid of the software, but it doesn't detect a video capture device after I tell it I have connected all the wires and switched on the camera.

So does a S-Video hole mean that the computer has a video capture device, and if so, how can I know what type it is to download any extra drivers if needed? And is there such thing as an "on" button on one?

No documentation about it came with the computer which I find odd.

Toshiba Qosmio G30-155 Video capture does not work through the ports of the video in (Windows Vista Ultimate x86) BIOS version 3.90 win
Video capture is not working in Windows Media Center, even if selected as the input port composite or s-video ports in the settings of Windows Media Center.

In BIOS settings version 3.90 via esc-F1 may select only this options: NTSC (USA), NTSC (Japan), PAL (S-video).

It is noticeable that the laptop is supposedly in capture mode NTSC for composite input

Somebody turned on to make this model of laptop video capture via composite video input with the new version of BIOS (version 3.90 win)?

A:Qosmio G30-155: Video capture does not work using s-video in port

Can you please explain to us what do you want to do exactly?

Long time ago I had this old Qosmio with TV tuner and antenna in port so I used it to transfer my old videos from VHS format and burn movie DVDs.

For this purpose I didn?t use Windows Media Center. Why you don?t use some other recording application. I think anyone is better than Windows Media Center.

Please bear with me as this video lark is all new to me.

I recently got a Sony TRV245E camcorder and was wondering what the best format is when capturing images on the PC?
I seem to have the choice of AVI or MPEG-1.

The camera does this via USB but also has a 'DV out' connection, would this improve quality at all?

I did a test VCD and when I played it on my DVD player it looked horribly pixilated. I had to use NERO to do this as the Pixela ImageMixer software that came with the camera wouldn't recognise my CDRW drive.

Also as this camera has no 'DV in' is there a way of getting images back ot of the PC and onto VHS tape?

Not sure about the hardware classification of this but here goes..

Ive got a GF4 MX440SE with an RCA video in port. Im trying to retrieve images from a Sony Digital Handycam for a project. Im Just wondering how this works? Im sure its video in because I tried it from the RCA to my TV with no results.. so Im guessing its video in. It has an S-video port too. I maybe being naieve about this but Im in a bit of a rush, Im on a deadline and what I thought was going to be easy isnt. What software do I need if any? Will I need to install cam drivers or should it just recieve the signal so long as I choose the right option? I could go USB but Im not sure of the availability of the USB lead for the camers, its a polytech version and all the cables have mysteriously gone missing..
Anyways.. any help greaty appreciated!

I posted a few weeks ago about some problems with capturing video, with no luck. Basically, I took back the AVC-1100 and got the AVC-2210. My problem is that everything seems ok, however when I try to capture video all it does is capture a black screen with no audio. The preview is also always black. I tried it on a new VCR and TV with the same results. So, now that I tried 2 different VCRs, and two different video capturing hardware, it must be something in my computer. I wrote adaptec, and they weren't much help. They said it could be something with my video drivers, they had me do start->run->dxdiag go to display and then try and download drivers (which i could not do....i couldn't find anything and im not sure what im looking for. i have NVIDIA GeForce Ti 4200 with AGP8X).

Hi prhutcho, and welcome to TSG.

Are you testing using the same S-Video cable and switching it between the capture unit and the TV? S-Video uses separate signal lines for the color information (Chrominance) and the brightness information (Luminance). You end up with a black white picture if the Chrominance line is broken in the cable.

All I want to do is play my Nintendo Wii, and somehow get it recorded onto my computer into digital video. My computer is new with Windows Vista, is HP, and has many functions, some of which I don't even know what they do. But anyways, back to the main point.

"The device 'Hauppauge WinTV 418 Video Capture' could not be opened. Please make sure that it is turned on and is not being used by another application or user."

What's really weird is that I have been able to play my Wii on the computer before, but one day, it just said that, and since then, no programs will take my AV things. Furthermore, I have tried connecting my VCR to the computer, and to no avail, I get the same message.

Does anyone know what is wrong??? I'm really confused, and this thing has been driving me up the wall.

I don't think you'd notice a difference - sound quality isn't that great in VHS tapes anyhow.

If you don't use some sort of filtering or other postprocessing method, the quality will be the same at best, but it'll probably look worse on a computer monitor, because computer monitors display progressive video while TV displays interlaced.

Well I for one don't have a television, only this 20" LCD monitor (with Pinnacle PCTV Rave TV card). Some video applications I use have filtering to provide nice quality TV, and I can capture to DVD / whatever without extra AD/DA conversions in between.

I've looked on a couple of sites without much success for a capture card that has a few specific things:

rca input

Y/Pr/Pb input

TV input

does anybody know if such a card is available (with/without s-video doesn't matter), and how much it'd cost?

A:video capture cards

Pinnacle sells kits ,bundled with thier software though.Check their site to see if it is appropriate. Software is one of the best.

Hi everyone,

First of all , I am trying to transfer video off my Sony Camera through USB, but I can't seem to find a software.. I tried Windows Movie maker but the quality was terrible...

and secondly, I have some home made cricket videos and I would like to find out a way in which I can edit them easily, like real televised cricket.

and finally, I have tons of WAV files which I want to overlap , join etc,to make a longer file, so does anyone know of a program that allows this easily..

Thanks to everyone and any help is very much appreciated

A:Video Editing and Capture


I use this.

you can add as many tracks as you like, overlap them etc.

A:video capture programmes

Hello Mark in Darwin and welcome to TSG!

I have found that most video clips, when viewed online are temporarily downloaded to your Temporary Internet Files folder. I have gone to that folder and right clicked/copied the clips to another location.

I recently purchased a USB webcam. Didnt come with software. (go figure), It works in Explorer. Purchased software called AVS Video Capture. When I launch the software, computer restarts. Had a virus come thru my 'free virus software' yesterday. Reinstalled XP and SP2 from ms cd. Installed Norton IS 2008, Webcam was perfect. Did sp3 and all other updates, now im back to resarting when i launch the software.

A:Video Capture issues

Use a different video capture software like windows media encoder (free from MS). Perhaps AVS is incompatible with XP SP3.
