    Hi all, my brother just graduated from University and the ceremony has just been. The University have kindly uploaded a pre recorded stream of the ceremony and wanted to record it for memorable reasons. Iv'e been recommended camstudio to do the job but cant seem to get the settings correct as the recorded playback i did the video is judder and their is no audio even though i selected audio from speakers in the options tab. Based on my pc spec below what setting would you recommend i use to record a smooth video but also at the best video quality too? As the streamed video is an .mp4 file:

    Microsoft Windows 8 64-bit
    CPU
    Intel Core i7 3610QM @ 2.30GHz turboboost to 2.9GHz
    Ivy Bridge 22nm Technology

    RAM
    16.00 GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)

    Graphics
    Generic PnP Monitor (1920x1080@60Hz)
    Intel HD Graphics 4000
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M

    Thanks

  2. There are many tools that may allow you to download the mp4 file. That is far preferable to screen capture.

    FYI, Camstudio does have a serious bug against various audio drivers. This problem is OLD, and apparently will never be fixed.

    Telling us the URL to the page that contains that video would be a good starting point

    If you view ANYTHING on the net you log in to a server

    BTW You can also use conventional software such as HiDownload to automatically record this video as it plays. Just tested it myself.

  13. Download the attached ZIP file. Extract the two files (rtmpdump.exe and getrtmp.bat) to your desktop. Double click on getrtmp.bat. A window will open as the file is downloaded to your desktop. That will get you the HD version. if you want the SD version instead, edit the BAT file with Notepad and replace the command line with the SD command line CristianoA provided. Save the BAT file and double click on it.

    Maybe. Some of these recording programs use two connections - 1 to view the video and another to record it.

    You seem rather paranoid about being logged in and, possibly, caught out recording this. The server admin will see who is logged in and that could mean fook all - it will tell them the IP from where you recorded it.

    If they want more info they will have to ask the ISP and they would hardly give it without some sort of court order.

    Of couse, if you are recording it from a Uni workstation where you have to log in with some form of password then that is a whole different ball game.

    Since you are using the same RTMP protocol that's used to view the videos online -- there's no way for them to know whether you're downloading the video or just watching it.

    There is no real risk. If the url was not public, and this looks like a public page, it could be a different matter. This is hardly espionage or looking at Governemnt servers for proof of the existance of little green men.

    There's no risk at all. They can't tell if your downloading the video or just watching it.
