    Default The MFC | Myfreecams thread

    Whats the best settings for capturing from this site?

    I'm using both RMC 4.4.5.0 and 5.0.0.97 Licensed.

    I have tried many different settings and feeling quite disappointed with all the results. I think this is in part due to how the stream is streamed.
    What are you thoughts?

    Hey -

    If your getting speed up recordings then you are getting a cam that is sending incorrect timestamps. Use the Fix FLV tool to adjust the timestamp increment. Either 15 or 25 normally does the trick. The Fix FLV tool is available in the context menu for the item downloaded.

    If your not happy with the naming, switch of the naming rules in the settings that you dont want to use so only the active browser name is used.

    for me right now using RMC 5 to record myfreecams streams is screwed up, lots of bugs in video, but using RMC 4 is just fine.

    yes RMC5 is piss poor for MFC but here is what I do as a work around.

    You have to use both RMC5 and RMC4 to achieve what you want.

    Open RMC4 and go to Settings > RTMP Tweaks and check the section that says Always record RTMP streams (instead of downloading).



    Record your videos as normal, once you have done that, right-click on the video and click Open Storage.
    Drag and drop the video into the RMC5 window just like below.



    Right-click on the video and select Fix FLV then click Fix Duration



    Click RTMP Timestamps and where is says Timestamp, set it to around 25. If the video is really long like 40 mins or so, set it to 40.
    Click Fix Time



    Click Close and open the video. You will notice there will be no video ghosting or out of sync video or noises.

    Enjoy!

    Hey -

    You can also fix flv file timestamps in 4. Select the file you want to fix and the Download > Fix FLV. Then expand the File Contents section just above the progress bar. Works exactly the same as v5's fix flv tool does from there on in.

    But if you dont want to use the Fix FLV tool then you can also switch off the following settings when recording live cams from MFC.

    In v4: Settings > RTMP Tweaks
    In v5: Settings > Internet > RTMP

    "Automatically Fix live streams and those without a duration"
    "Rebase timestamps to 0"

    These are on by default (in both 4 and 5) but for MFC better recordings can be obtained by switching them off without the need for a fix flv after.

    Ah yes you are right although in 4 it's not so obvious where the Timestamp fix is. Thanks again CRS

    Hey -

    A post in this thread http://forum.applian.com/showthread....ry-low-quality has alerted us that the low quality comes when recording two or more cams in v5 when compared to v4.

    This has allowed us to track down the issue in 5 and its fixed and will be in the next release - probably in the next few days.
