Just an FYI for all you crazy kids who want to use istanbul for
screencasting into theora videos. Istanbul 0.2.1 just got through the
buildsystem for fe-devel.  This is not your grand-daddy's istanbul.
Unlike the version in fe5, this one uses gst-0.10 and claims to record
audio and wonders of wonders the mouse cursor too!

Beat the crap out of it, and just remember to drive all those juicy ui
and functionality bugs into the loving hands of the upstream
developers. Don't shoot the messenger..err packager.

And please if someone is able to use this to make what they consider
reasonable quality videos, please update the screencasting wiki page
with the system settings you used. Higher resolution displays will
take more cpu and memory power, so we need to find a nice usable
display resolution that screencast creators can agree to standardize
on.  Previously the gst08 based istanbul would drop frames like mad if
the encoding wasn't fast enough to handle the display resolution so
you had to be careful when choosing frame-rate based on your screen
resolution and your cpu/memory resources. I doubt that has been
completely addressed... but we will see.

screencasts too fancy for those bookwormy docs people?"spaleta
