Thanks for that addition
I have now - I hope - finished my wee project.
I had a problem recording from webcam while keeping the sync correct and not dropping too many frames and such problems.
I am now recording audio and video separately, muxing them, and then converting the result to mp4 (HQ).
Presently I am using a mix of mencoder for the recording and muxing and ffmeg for the converting.
I might sometime change to use only one of them ....... but I always have both installed so it makes little difference to me.
I doubt anyone is interested but if so here is a link to the script.http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5838889/CamRecord-0.1.sh
Some of the settings may need to be changed depending on your webcam ......
Thanks for the help
Another wee itch scratched!
Oops! Just realised I forgot to mention Leiche ...... it was from his script for a similar purpose that I started. My apologies for not stating this earlier.
