QuickTime :: Screen Recording Stuck On Finishing?

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.

Mac QuickTime :: 10.0 Screen Recording Randomly Skips Parts Of The Recording?
I'm using the QuickTime Player to record some gameplay on my computer and sometimes, randomly, it skips part of the video. Sometimes its just a minute or 2 and sometimes its 15 minutes. I don't know why or how this could possibly happens, but it does. I have 366GB of space on my computer left so space is not an issue. I don't know what is.

Mac QuickTime :: Keyboard Commands To Start Recording A New Screen Recording?
Is there a key combo to start the new screen recording in QTx? Or another app that allows you to record a presentation or meeting (with audio and video without embedding a file) without hitting a button?

Mac QuickTime :: Editing Screen Recording So That Only Application Screen Show
I am doing a screen recording of an application that uses a browser. I need to be able to remove surrounding the application. Preferably even any sign of a browser. Do not find any info on the editing features of Quicktime Pro, so not sure if I should upgrade or not. Would rather not, if it cannot do what I need it to do. Do not find any concrete answer on apple quicktime website.

QuickTime :: Can't Zoom In While Screen Recording
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.

MacBook :: Late 2008 UniBody Stuck On Finishing Charge?
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.

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

Mac QuickTime :: Make Screen Recording Of Video On Dvd?
I burned a DVD which I am running on my Mac. I wish to make a screen recording of the video on the DVD. Although I can see the video running while I am recording, the end result is a blank (gray) screen. Is there something I am doing wrong? I recently did the same thing but with You Tube video and it worked fine.

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

Final Cut Pro :: QuickTime X - Screen Recording - Can't Import 7.0
I upgraded to Snow Leopard on my MacBookPro 2.4GHzCore2Duo4GB RAM. No problems. I ran the new QuickTime X and made a short screen recording. Saved to desktop; I get a .mov file. Ran Final Cut Pro 7.0 after recently upgrading to FCS 3, tried to import the screen recording, get error message "File error: unknown file." What's up? The file can be read by iMovie '09, by the way - not that I would ever use that software.

Applications :: Recording With QuickTime - Continuous Buzzing Noise?
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.

QuickTime :: Multiple Audio Sources For Movie Recording?
I want to record a Quicktime movie using iSight as the video input, external audio (guitar) via a Focusrite Saffire LE (1874) audio interface and internal audio (a backing track) from either iTunes, Logic 9 or MainStage 2 (I don't care which), so I can record myself playing and then send the video to another guitarist via Dropbox or similar.

Mac QuickTime :: When Starting New Video Recording / OSStatus Error -536870206.
When I try to start a new video recording I receive the following error:

The operation couldn't be completed. (OSStatus error -536870206.)

I am using Quicktime Pro on an iMac running Mac OS X 10.6.5. Quicktime will work with iSight but not with my PS3 eye (usb webcam). I am able to choose the PS3 eye from Quicktime preferences and the video screen will show up with video from the PS3 eye (so I know that Quicktime recognizes the cam). But the error dialogue box appears immediately.

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

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?
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.

I tried uploading pictures with my s.card and then I plugged in my back up storage disk to transfer pictures and then my computer stopped working as if it was overloaded or something....

Am I asking to much of my iMac (2.66 C2D with ATI 2600)? I quit other apps and made sure that I was not paging out to the HDD. How to improve the quality of the recording?
