    Hi,

    I tried to record my dektop with VLC, but all I got when I later opened the video, was white.

    Any ideas?

    I would use VNC to other computer and record the screen there with an App.

    I never recorded thru VLC fine...

    Screen capture with VLC

    I would try the Panther 0.8.x VLC version and the v 1.x

    Probably 2.x can't handle recording right.

    What app do you recommend via VNC?

    I have vers 0.9x maybe I should try 0.8, ok.

    It depends if you record on a PowerPC or a Intel
    Snapz Pro X works since OS9 AFAIK, but there should be lots of 3rd party apps.

    I remember using one for OSX PowerPC and another for Intel, but maybe there are Universals ones.

    Probably Quartz allow to record the screen in a different way than OS9.

    I guess you get better results using two computers than taxing one to do all (capture video+recording to disk).

    Try also ScreenTool , ScreenFlow . ScreenFlow has PowerPC and Intel versions.

    I had snapz pro x once and the trial time is over and I am to cheap to buy the license ;)

    well, I did never set up a VNC, so I would have to look into it. I successfully recorded with QT-pro, but the result was not as good as with snapz pro x, because QT was more system taxing.

    Thanks for the links to other apps.

    VLC is not a professional screen recording program, thus you cannot always record screen successfully with it. To avoid record blank screen, you’d better use more professional screencast tools like ScreenFlow ($99, offer video editor but only support full screen recording), Screencast-O-Matic (Free for 15 minutes’ recording), Apowersoft Mac Screen Recorder ($39, provides real-time editing, video converting) and many more. Or you can search online for more options.
