How do you capture streaming video?

I'm trying to capture/record a real time web conference with streaming video coming in from everybody's webcams, but all of the video boxes are just being recorded with a single image.

I called adobe support and they looked into it and told me that there is some overlaying application that blocks you from recording streaming video like this, but there is a way to remove the application. He said that neither he or is supervisor know how to do it, but that I should post this forum and some technical support person would get back to me.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, I need to get this figured out this week for some important stuff at work.

Thanks

Thanks RIck.

The technical support person for captivate said that there is a way to record the live video with captivate, I just need to find a way to remove the overlaying application that prevents it. Is this true, or do did I just waste $700 on a software that wont do what I need it to?

Hi again

Hmmm, well I'm aware that Captivate can do Full Motion recording. Normally you tap the F9 key to start it and F10 to stop. But I've never known it to work anything near what I would call flawlessly. The end result is nearly always less than satisfactory.

Captivate is a terrific product for what it does. Unfortunately, Full Motion capture has never been its strong point.

Cheers... Rick

Often you flat cannot record playing video - you might capture a black
rectangle instead of the video you want. This is dependant upon how the
video is playing, as often the video plays played on a special overlay that
is 'above' everything else in the window (super-simplification!!).

When you can capture the video, you will rarely get a high-quality capture
as doing so is very processor intensive. And if your video is streaming, you
are asking a lot of your computer to complete all the tasks required to
download, decode, display and then capture and resave the video. Captivate
is really not a tool designed for this. People seem to have better luck with
Camtasia.

Try using "debut video capture" it will record whatever is on your screen seamlessly ,adobe will turn your videos into still screen shots.

I use Joyoshare VidiKit. It is a video toolbox and has a built-in screen recorder. I often use it to record live streaming videos. It is able to record screen in HD or 4K quality. Created videos are lag-free and watermark-free. It is my favorite.
