Need to record the screen - how do i do it?
I originally posted this in a different section but realized this is a better section for this:
I am working on a screen capture program to record the screen to a media file (avi/flv/mp4 etc) or transmit the screen across the network for live viewing.
How do i access the display contents? Are there any APIs i should be reading? Any system calls? Please advice.
How would YOU do it?
The project has to be purely C++ and shouldn't use python as do some other projects.
So far I have:
Figured out how to make the GUI using Qt
How to transmit data across a network
I understand this question may be a little broad. I'd appreciate any pointers you can give me on this.
Thanks in advance,
