QuickTime :: Screen Recording Stuck On Finishing?

Feb 19, 2012

I was making a screen recording for a video tutorial and when I finished, it stuck itself on "finishing." I haven't been able to force quit it in the dock or in Activity Monitor. I cannot shut my computer off or restart it. I have a 21.5' iMac running Mac OS X Lion version 10.7.3. My processor is 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5. I have 4GB 1333 MHz DDR3 memory. Here is a screenshot.

QuickTime :: Can't Zoom In While Screen Recording

Jul 3, 2012

I want to make training videos. I still can zoom in while doing screen recording with Quicktime in my MacBookPro Lion. But when I played back, there's no zoom in in the movies. 

I've tried to set the things in Universal Access-seeing-options- and tick 'use scrool keys modifier....' but still didn't work. Restarted the mbp, still didn't work.

OS X :: QuickTime Screen Recording Stopped (IChat Conversation)

May 24, 2010

I have the aluminum unibody macbook from I think 2008 with the 2.0 ghz and 2 gigs of ram. I was on iChat with a friend the other day and wanted to record our conversation. So I fired up QuickTime X and started the screen recording function. When we were finished (a good 15 mins later) I pressed stop on the screen recording and everything seemed fine. I went back today to make notes and it only recorded 6 minutes of our conversation!! My computer was really working hard on the fan keeping it cool from all the cpu usage but I thought everything was fine. Could it have overheated and caused QuickTime to stop recording? Or another explanation?

OS X :: Snow Leopard Offer Screen Recording Via QuickTime X Player

Apr 24, 2009

With the introduction of Snow Leopard, QuickTime Player will assume more of a utilitarian role, with screen recording features reportedly joining the software's exiting repertoire of basic audio and video capture capabilities. People familiar with the latest betas of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard have been reporting over the past several weeks the addition of a 'Screen recording' option in the File menu of the new Quick Time X Player due to ship with the OS overhaul later this summer.

Similar in many ways to a feature long offered by Ambrosia Software through its Snapz Pro X utility, the option will allow users to capture in motion video their Mac's screen -- essentially video screenshots. Such a feature will be particularly useful for software developers and educators, as it will simplify the process of creating video tutorials, software demonstrations, and anything else best captured in live motion as opposed to still shots.

When selecting the screen recording option under recent pre-release distributions of Snow Leopard, a recording interface prompts the user to begin a video capture then disappears. A small footprint controller in the upper-right hand side of the Mac OS X menubar can be used to end the video capture. While its unclear if the feature is fully functional in build 10A335 released Thursday, it wasn't in earlier builds, often creating an empty .mov file, those familiar with the software say. An artist's mockup of the minimal QuickTime X Player window interface with the "trim" tools overlay.

QuickTime X -- along with the minimal-interfaced QuickTime X Player (renditions) -- leverages media technology pioneered by Apple for the iPhone OS. When it makes its debut on the Mac with Snow Leopard, it'll offer optimize support for modern audio and video formats resulting in extremely efficient media playback, the company has said.

MacBook :: Late 2008 UniBody Stuck On Finishing Charge?

Mar 2, 2012

I recently purchased a Late 2008 Unibody MacBook. I am thrilled! Yet I seem to be having the same charging issue MANY other people have had and have still not found a solution. Basically, as with everyone else, when I connected the Magsafe connector, it stays on finishing charge as if stuck there. I have left it for 2 full days and nights now with no luck. I have calibrated the battery and it is still doing it. The battery only shows 60 cycles and it's health it at 80%. I've even reset the SMC with no avail.

Applications :: Recording With QuickTime - Continuous Buzzing Noise?

May 16, 2009

I've been trying to audio record my piano playing with my unibody Macbook using Quicktime Pro 7. The recording is absolutely terrible--there is so much buzz, as if the microphone is being held right next to the back of the piano. In truth, I set my laptop about ten metres from the piano. The buzzing continues. It's as if the equalizer settings are set to max.

OS X :: Additional Software Is Required For Quicktime In Stuck Window?

Jun 4, 2010

I have imac 24. There is a small window that popped up and says,"Additional software is required for quicktime to playback this media. It may be available from the quicktime components page. Make sure your internet connection is active, then click the continue button to check for the software."The problem is is that I am not trying to use quicktime and nor is it running currently AND when the cursor is over the window it just spins the color pin wheel. This window will not go away. I cannot drag it, close it or press continue on it. I have cleared all cookies, cache and reset safari and nothing works. I restart my computer and it is gone for maybe a few minutes and then it reappears .

OS X :: Screen Recording In Snow Leopard?

Jan 12, 2010

I remember reading some threads pre-SL days where people mentioned a new Screen Recording tool. But I can't find it anywhere.

I'm interested in recording my desktop (keynote, videos, audio, me) for education purposes. I'm demoing Screenflow now (love it to death) but are there any native options that I'm missing? Was this tool added to SL and I just can't find it?

OS X :: Screen Recording Performance Choppy And Inconsistent?

Aug 27, 2010

I have been trying out all the normal programs for Mac screen recording (iShow U HD, Snapz Pro X, Screenium, Screenflow, even Adobe Captivate!) but not of them run smoothly at ~30 FPS on my 2009 MacBook Pro, they are very choppy and inconsistent. Is this just an issue of lack of hardware, and if I get a beefier machine, it will run better?
The MBP specs are: 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo w/ 4GB RAM
Also, on a slightly different note, when I go to upload some of the more simple, less choppy videos to Youtube, they lose a LOT of quality. Any tips on uploading? I use .FLV or .MOV typically, but they never look very good at all xD once they upload.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mac 10.7.4 Crashed On Finishing Update

Jun 7, 2012

After finding some things going wrong with my system such as Wineserver and Java I suspect to not be working correctly as I attemped to play Minecraft (Uses Java) and League of Legends for the Mac otherwise known as iLoL (Uses Wine) I decided maybe it was for the best to update the OS as some updates might have "borked" some code up.

I originally tried to update to 10.7.4 with the software update button found in the apple menu, but after updating it said it had failed after restarting to install the software with the error of "The installer encountered an error that caused the installer to fail, contact the software manufacturer for assistance" Leaving me with 10.7.3, I have tried repairing my disk permissions but that did not work neither did reinstalling 10.7.3 as it had the same error or restarting my computer all the same. But I did find this informative log in my console, if only I could understand it as I'm not the most technilogicily advanced person ever but I do enjoy software development, anyhow here is the log that I discovered in my console.

Applications :: Video Screen Recording Software - Record Voice And Merge Them

Dec 10, 2009

I'm planning on adding how to videos to my site (flash) so that its easier for my customer to understand how to use a page. Ie instead of trying to explain common things in a FAQ I would have a video actually showing them. Ideally I'll be able to record my actions on screen and my voice as I describe what I'm doing. I'm willing to pay for the app, but just not that much ie less than $100. Now I don't need an all in one, for instance if there is a free app to do screen recording and another free app that can record my voice and another to merge them together I'm fine with that. I understand that free is free and I have to deal with some of the headaches. Any advice as to what software I would need. A quick google for mac screen recording brings a bunch of results.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Paging Pondini: "Finishing Backup" In Time Machine Never Finishes?

Mar 21, 2012

I begin to question the reliability of this Time Machine stuff. I've been trying to get initial backup for my TM with my new NAS (iomega ix2-200 Cloud Edition) this past week. I can't get over it, it's ridiculous. Around 7 attempts using wifi had all failed. Today I tried using ethernet (I know, I should've tried it earlier), and although it is significantly faster, this is all I got until now: Starting standard backup Attempting to mount network destination URL: afp://******@192.168.1.18/Backups Mounted network destination at mountpoint: /Volumes/Backups-1 using URL: afp://******@192.168.1.18/Backups QUICKCHECK ONLY; FILESYSTEM CLEAN Disk image /Volumes/Backups-1/****** MacBook Pro.sparsebundle mounted at: /Volumes/Time Machine Backups Backing up to: /Volumes/Time Machine Backups/Backups.backupdb 6.53 GB required (including padding), 1.33 TB available Waiting for index to be ready (101) Copied 377.5 MB of 4.9 GB, 743476 of 919412 items Copied 894411 files (3.1 GB) from volume Macintosh HD. Event store UUIDs don't match for volume: Macintosh HD

It seems like it doesn't actually start new backup, and the size of the sparsebundle is now reaching 120GBs. However, the process seemed to be halted in "finishing backup".I'm paging Pondini because I know he's the most resourceful person about TM out there

OS X :: Window Stuck On Screen?

i had firefox open and i was typing on another site. i opened the special characters window because i needed a unique symbol. when i tried closing that window, it froze. i proceeded to quit firefox so it would go away. it stayed on my screen though, even with firefox closed. next i thought my computer was just being buggy. so, i completely shut it down for a while and logged back on. the window is still there and won't go away.

here's a screenshot i took so you can visually see what's going on here: [URL}

after the previous attempts didn't work i've tried completely removing firefox from my computer and redownloading it, which didn't work, and restoring my system, which also didn't work.

QuickTime :: 7.66 Now Has Green Screen?

May 13, 2012

We just upgraded to LION 10.7.4 and I'm noticing on a few of my Quicktime movies - when paused, the screen turns green?  THAT'S never happened before.  I'm sure it's an upgrade issue, when I go back to our clone from last week, it doesn't do that! We use QT Pro 7.66. on a MacBook Pro (about 1 1/2 years old) - always perfect results, but now this? No big deal, just a little annoying.  It only does this on a few of the movies we've exported out of Final Cut Pro.  Can't find the pattern?
