Recording video with gstreamer

For future reference, here is the gstreamer pipeline I'm currently using to record videos (with audio) for YouTube:

gst-launch-0.10 \
v4l2src ! 'video/x-raw-yuv,width=800,height=600,framerate=20/1' \
! tee name=t_vid ! queue ! xvimagesink sync=false t_vid. ! queue \
! videorate ! 'video/x-raw-yuv,framerate=20/1' ! queue \
! mux. pulsesrc ! audio/x-raw-int,rate=48000,channels=2,depth=16 ! queue \
! audioconvert ! queue \
! mux. avimux name=mux ! filesink location=test6.avi

For some reason cheese becomes slow for me when I start recording. Probably the theora encoding? I need to investigate further.

I now have tickets for New York! And yay for Bosnia in 2011.

Plugging the Debian GNOME bug weekend

This weekend I've been messing about with gstreamer pipelines so that I can spam the world with YouTube videos. Go me! Let's see if it shows up on Planet Debian.

Next weekend I'll be teaching my brother how to triage Debian GNOME bugs. :)

I'm afraid I have turned off comments for this blog, because of all the spam. Let's face it, I didn't read them anyway. Feel free to email me.
