You can write a little thing for blueprints. But that's not remotely useful for the native C++ workflow.

Hey guys, can anyone recomend a simple desktop recording program to capture audio/video of my desktop? I'm taking a college course online and my professor has set it so that their lectures are removed from the course site after 2 weeks of broadcast. This is a problem because these lectures contain information we need to review for exams and isn't in the text or handouts.

Before you ask, yes this is a dumb set up and I'm trying to get them to change it, but in the meantime I need to get these recordings while they fix the issue.

I've tried a couple of free desktop recording software, but so far they either do not capture audio, save as a unique filetype that can't be played back in a media player, or can only capture in 3 minute intervals before auto shutting off

I need a program that can record a video conference that goes on for 1-2 hours, saves audio and video, and is free.

I don't care if it has a water mark or if the quality isn't crisp as long as it's functional. I just need a basic program.

Thanks for any recs

Well, depends on what GPU you have. If you have nvidia you can record with shadowplay. Think the AMD ones have something similiar but called something else.
If you're on integrated graphics I've no idea though. Maybe OBS studio? I've heard that it works great for video screen cap. even though it's a bit overkill for just that.

Apologies if this is a dumb question, but are there reasons for someone to buy a surveillance hard drive, aside from like, surveillance purposes?

I've done a little reading and it's not really clear to me. My partner just bought one and I'm a little nervous that he's going to use it to spy on me. I'm just wondering if there are other, plausible reasons he would purchase that particular type of hard drive.

He does a lot of gaming. He has described his set-up as having some sort of a mirror system to protect against data loss in case one hard drive goes down. His computer is running pretty much 24/7.

Each thing that I've read mentions something about surveillance video storage. I will ask him directly the next time I see him, but I just want to know if I'm over-reacting before I do. I had a previous partner record me without my knowing so just seeing the word "surveillance" in this context makes me nervous.

Pic is what he bought. Thanks for any info.

>but are there reasons for someone to buy a surveillance hard drive,

There is not any realistic 'decent' hard drives meant for watching peoples activity.

As person said, things, names may have meanings that may seem, troublesome.

'surveillance' may seem sound distressful. But it surely in its-self of the product is benign.
There are hard drives that contain pre-installed software. This would be one.

If he has a better plan, he would simply wipe the per-installed software, and install what he likes.
A simple example, people game, and are serious, people game for years and
get to levels that take months years, and if their HD goes out, all that effort is
gone. So simply mirroring their drive, they have a backup.

That is what this Hd seems to do. (which one could spend less, to do the same thing.)

Reality, some people sell their achievements in online gaming for thousands of dollars.


Some software will try to secure online gaming, the 'Surveillance, aspect' I assume is software an the hard-drive, pre-installed; trying to keep peoples online gaming data intact if things go south. A backup.

Gamers are kinda, not weird, but generally know their stuff. It is kinda a different world in computing.

Seems if the contentious activity, so the hard drives would be not identical. In comparison to just a random hard drive picked up. Like this, I have gotten WD external or whatever hard drives. The first thing I would do is wipe their default

If they're cheaper than the NAS hard drives buy them and use them in your NAS.
The main difference is gonna be amount of cache and caching behavior.

The surveillance HDs are optimized for constant writing over reading or random access.

SD cards are not doing a lot of this and their write endurance is relatively low.
They do wear leveling, not overprovisioning. They don't have spare blocks, at least nothing like the 7%-15% an SSD does, they just try to preserve the ones they have.

Also the lower the voltage your mouse runs at, the more it's out of spec with the Omron switches they put in them, and the more likely your mouse is going to develop bouncing and double clicks.

A wired mouse running at 5 volts is not running far out of spec. A wireless one running at 3.3v is running WELL out of spec and may run into issues where it can't even reliably cut through the normal wear and tear and corrosion to hit its rated number of clicks.

The kicker is that even the wired mice might still be running 3.3v controller chips in them so we're just fucked.

Replace them with Japanese Omrons if your mouse buttons break. They're a completely different switch with lower voltage rating from the normal Omrons and clones.

what all do i need to keep my identity as obscured as possible online? Ive been tryna not to jump into this stupid. if i :
>factory reset my computer
>edit my device's MAC address
>use socks
>use hide.me
>keep vpn shit running constantly if its online
>never log into anything attatched to my real identity on the device
is that enough?
is it still unsafe to use my own wifi/ethernet with all that?

my device is a macbook air
i know i will have to create a new apple ID to set it up when i reset it, any advice on the best method of doing so? should i just create a new hotmail acc thru a vpn?

i also have a old iphone 4 (never registered to me) i was gonna use in conjunction with it and just buy a burner SIM for after clearing it out with phoneclean and jailbreaking it. But im worried that even the burner SIM is a bad idea to have linked to the macbook air in any way cos it will still still be location specific. should i make a tertiary apple ID for the phone if i want to use it too? i was hoping to avoid doing so cos it would make everything more difficult than if i could just link them.

i have a handful of other windows computers i can use if i need but i don't wanna doom them to a life of secrecy

The head, is there
Sure VPNs are perfect. Fine for corporate usage. Free ones, I would have doubts.

DnsCrypt-proxy will encrypt requests with remote servers so that they are not stored on ones internet providers servers logs. I have found dns leaks that should not have been there with vpns. VPNs may boast being the best,
but many variables can come into play. Leaks that would be resolved directly by ones ISP's dns servers and logged and could be avoided. Anyway, with a vpn, not much of an issue if something slips through if using some dns encryption scheme. Even basic browsing without a vpn, there are free open DNS servers that at times are much faster than you ISPs servers.

So I'm trying to rip episodes of The Last Drive-In off Shudder since with volatile digital rights agreements these shows will be gone forever at some point (probably within a year of airing) so I'm trying to rip the episodes to save and it seems like it ripped the video file correctly based on the file size, the length, dimensions, bitrate, and framerate, but I've tried the file in VLC, MPC-HC, and PotPlayer and the seeker will move like it's playing but it just shows blank video and no audio plays.

How to rip directly from a stream is almost always a closely guarded secret. If a commercial video platform knew how people were doing it, they would break the method. Your best bet is either capturing the video or looking for a forum where you can make scene requests.

The damndest thing is that both Jaksta and Video Download Helper both grab like a 1GB mp4 file with what seems to be the correct video dimensions and running time, but it just doesn't play any video or audio like it was running on some weird codec. I was hoping this was something I could repair through handbrake or whatever but I guess not.

Oh well, I guess I'll just hope someone else figured this out and just download the series in the future once it's been removed so I have a digital backup. I guess I could ghetto screen record it but the file size would likely come out to like 5 gigs or some retarded shit.
