All right i am setting this software up for a company that was looking for a recording software to record and save to the network.  But what we are trying to do are as followed if anyone can help.

Windows xp pro sp3
Debut 1.64

1.  Set all settings to be the same for all users
2.  Default format to be set to. Wmv for all users

They have tested it out and like it so far and are looking to buy it but would love to get these 2 things to work before buying this software.

Also i have looked at one of the recording and saw that the video is like a stop and go video.  What could cause this.

THANKS

I can't fix your default settings problem, but mine defaults to .wmv (which I don't want it to), but I can help with your second question.

The reason that your video is stop and go is that recording in any format requires the computer to encode the video information on the fly. When the computer can't keep up, then you get the slideshow effect. The two primary things that affect this are the computer's computing power and the encoder used.

After experimenting at length, I have found that the best format to capture raw video (on screen or from another source) is in .avi using the Microsoft Video 1 encoder. I can capture 1920x1080 at around 26fps and it looks pretty good. After you capture the raw video, you can process it to post production form (editing and adding effects) using VideoPad Video Editor. When you process it you can use any encoder you like, since the computer will have plenty of time to encode the video. I typically use the Indeo Video 5 encoder to re-encode on VideoPad. It takes a while for the computer to finish but the results are pretty good.

If you want to re-encode to a specific file format, like .wmv, then you will have to use the only encoders available for that format which are the Windows Media Video 8 or 9. The good news is that you can capture your raw video in the .avi format with Microsoft Video 1, and then re-encode it during production to .wmv with Windows Media Video 8 or 9.

Hope that helped a little.
