I’m running fully updated F31 on a Lenovo M53 with a i5-4570 CPU. I’ve been trying out screencasters. My need is to make demo videos that I can distribute as files rather that stream live or place on the web.
I tried the built in Gnome screen recorder (Ctl+Alt+Shift+R) and it did work. However, it doesn’t record audio and and it stops after 30 seconds I found where that can be changed, but my demos won’t be fixed length or brief. I need audio So that one won’t work for me.
I have also tried Peek, OBS Studio, Simple Screen Recorder, and Vokoscreen. They all present the same major problem. When the file is played back, in all cases played with Videos, I get the audio, but the video is solid black.
I have all the codecs loaded and can play videos from other sources using Videos. I have tried having the screen recorders save the recording as different video file types but I always get the same result.
I’m guessing that there is something I need to configure in Gnome or Fedora, but I don’t know what. Any help will be appreciated.
Have a Great Day!
