To make my blogs slightly easier to follow, I’ve decided to do some screen casts for future blog posts. The first blog post to make use of video will be called How to change MythTV Backend from Localhost to a Static IP Address.
I’m using RecordItNow in KDE (Kubuntu 11.10) to produce the screencasts, although due to a bug stopping the recording proved difficult due to this nive little bug . Luckily, a patch in a test ppa fixed the problem.
Unfortunately, there is also a problem uploading to YouTube, which is reported in this Launchpad bug report
Bugs aside, the video got uploaded to YouTube using the web based uploader. It can be found at http://youtu.be/FpGufLPH_jw in 720p HD quality, should such things excite you!
The blog will be appearing in the next few days along with a second video to complete the article.
