BSOD screen capture of video

Q: BSOD screen capture of video

I was doing a screen capture of a video on You Tube when this bsod occurred;1st since updating to windows 10 Pro. This bsod was a light blue color with very little writing, but didn?t get error code/report as to why it happened but did disable auto reboot.

No dumps in the zip file you uploaded. Do you run any kind of hard drive cleaner, like CCleaner? If so stop using it until this problem is resolved.

Please make sure your PC is configured for small dump files:

If you get another BSOD, check C:\Windows\minidump to see if a .dmp file was created there. If yes, run DM_Log_collector again and up[load zip here.

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

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) ?

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.

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

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.

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?

Hey, this is my first post here, and I'm not positive on whether or not this is the right place to be posting this, so if not, please tell me where it should be. Thanks!

Anyways, basically I have spent countless hours getting nowhere with this video capture thing. 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.

Whenever I plug the Wii's AV cables into my computer, i get this message (on various capture programs such as DScaler, WMM, and Sony Vegas)

"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.

Thanks for any help.

P.S. I don't have a digital camera or camcorder, so don't bother asking.

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).

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.

Our church recently bought a new PC that came with Vista basic installed on it. We were going to use to capture video of our services. We have an ATI Radeon x1300 card that we installed, but we couldn't get it it capture.

We went to ATI's site to see if they had a Vista driver. They did but a disclaimer on their site said that at this time the video capture wasn't supported at this time in Vista. I've been looking but can't find any video capture cards that specifically say they are Vista ready or compatible.

My basic goal is to transfer some VHS tapes to DVD. I want to capture the video out the back of my VCR (RCA jacks) and into my PC so I can edit it and then burn to DVD. Can anyone recommend a good pci video capture card to do this?

Also, I have a 1394 firewire card in my system which I use to dump my camcorder video prior to burning to DVD and works great. I tried using my camcorder, but the AV jack on my camcorder (Panasonic PV-GS15) is for AV out only to play on a TV or something like that. Some units have jacks that are for both in and out, mine is not. However, there is the DV jack on the side of the camcorder. This is the port I use to transfer video out to my hard drive into my 1394 firewire card. I have talked with Panasonic and they confirmed I am able to record both audio & video through this DV port. At first, I thought great, all I need then is a cable with RCA phono jacks on one end to connect to my VCR out, and a DV connector on the other end to go to my camcorder. Then I realized, the "VCR output" is analog, and the "DV input" is digital. D'Oh!

I tried the Plextor digital video recorder device, but it didn't work well at all. I was dissapointed because I'm a Plextor fan of other products. Anyways, after upgrading both the firmware revision and the software of the device to the latest revs it worked better, but still poor video quality by anyone's standards.

A:PCI video capture card

TV capture cards will also act as analog video capture devices. I think this is an older card in OEM format Ė you have to download the drivers and software. But the price is right and Hauppauge is one of the best.

Iíve been wanting an inexpensive TV tuner for the computer and ordered one myself. If you want to wait a week I can tell you how well it works. Only my first 99 channels are analog and I donít really need the digital input for the computer. I bought a HDTV for that, but it might be nice to grab CNN on my second monitor.

If you donít want to mess with OEM this looks to be a complete kit:

If you are sure you donít want a TV tuner for the computer you might do better with a pure capture card. You could look through Pricewatch for a good price on a name brand capture card: Quite a few of the cards listed under capture are Firewire cards that assume digital input. You canít use one of those and it appears the cheapest capture cards are also TV tuners. My guess is that you get what you pay for as far as download speed, but there is only so much throughput you can get with a RCA plug. I had an old off-brand tuner card that couldnít be upgraded to XP, but it worked fine as a TV tuner.

I want to convert analog video to digital to post on my site. How do I know if I have a video capture card? Pinnacle Systems came loaded on my computer, so I assume I have one, but I'd still like to know what it is and how to find it. (I looked in System info but didn't know what I was looking for.)

Also, is there a particular type of cable (or whatever) that I need to transfer the video to my computer?


A:Video capture card?

You most likely don't have video in, you usually have to pay a lot for it, if you have an s-video connector on the back than you might. I would reccomend you get an All-In-Wonder card if you have the money, it has video in, video out(to tv as well as monitor), it has a coax cable so you can hook up cable or an antenna and watch TV through it, rca jacks are much better quality video for vcr though, the coax cable doesn't get it to it that well. There are also video USB adapters wich you can buy, my dad just got one and it works great. I don't know if it can record movies, I know the all-in-wonder has that capability, you might want to get real producer(I think its called that) for recording videos so it doesn't take as much time to load and it doesn't take up much space on your server.

You might want to look at these, they're the USB video things I was talking about, I'm not sure if the bottom one will be compliant with your VCR.

I have been wanting to buy a video capture device to put my VHSs on my computer and have decided the time is now. I have looked at the Dazzle Video Creator Platinum and am happy with the reviews but it doesn't have 64 bit drivers. So would do you guys recommend to me?

I guess a tv tuner would also work but what software would I use to record and seperate one video stream in to two files?

this probably isn't much help to you but I solved this problem without software.

I purchased a used digital video camera on eBay that had analog video inputs and firewire output. I could then capture the firewire, and also had the option of recording to dv tapes. This cost about the same as the dazzle, and handles audio too.

I had some terrible experiences with pinnacle a while ago, not a fan.

I just got a new All-In-Wonder Radeon 7500. I havn't had a chance to play around with it too mcuh yet, but it looks like the captured video takes up a ton of space.

I havent tried all the resolutions and such yet, but it seems that even the low grade stuff takes up a fair amount of space. I've downloaded full movies at high resolution that take up only around 700MB or so. So, I know it is possible to make them smaller.

I'm just wondering if anyone knows if I can capture directly to the smaller formats, or if I am going to have to capture a massive MPEG file first, and then use some software to convert it to some smaller format like MPEG4 afterwards.

Please let me know if you have any experience with this. I've found some info online about how to convert DVDs to MPEG4, but that's not exactly what I'm trying to do. I want to capture TV, and make it as small as possible without loosing a lot of quality, and I'm trying to find the best way of going about the whole process.

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.
