Youtube/Photobucket and ogv video - good format convertor?

Postby xircon on Wed Mar 30, 2011 2:27 pm

I have recorded my desktop to upload to youtube. It comes out as a green rectangle :( A well known problem per google.

Anyone recommend a good program to convert as I have never done this before.

Cheers

You can use Arista, Handbrake or ffmpeg (commandline) ! All three are awesome !

Handbrake works, Arista can't find plugins, so Handbrake it is.

Could I get a bit more elaboration on this please. I'm having the exact same thing happen.

What are you converting to? Flv? what's the problem with ogv? shouldn't this work straight up? I've been searching around but am not finding much useful info. This post was actually one of the first hits in scroogle. For some reason after uploading an ogv with recordmydesktop, photobucket shows the file as an mp4. Why? I'd rather not use flash, surely there's a way to get ogv to work with html 5 or something, but does that depend on the site? eg: playing embedded in wordpress does wordpress need to have html5?

I gave up and emailed the file in the end. Just tried to record my desktop again, but something has changed, the quality is now appalling with lots of artefacts.

You might find this video by Thisleweb helps with Recordmydesktop, it works on one of my machines but not the other.

I personally record just the video and then add a narrative with Audacity afterward and stitch them together in OpenShot

Hope this helps
