Hi, @mgroen2

 

Hmm... it seems that something wrong in environment.

Could you, please, launch you test, pause it after 2-3 seconds click on the icon of vlc player in taskbar and copy the text. Maybe some errors will be there.


 

Hi @AGubarev,

 

I did as you suggested, and now I got an error message.

The error message is displayed below.

 

can you help me with this?

Re: Video Recording of Test Execution is Easy

Hi  all,

 

I did some investigation myself, and I can give you an update now. First of all: the positive news: I got it working! Smiley Happy Smiley Happy

 

I was triggered specifically by this part in the error message:

 

" x264 encoder error: height not divisible by 2 "

 

the situation is that I am running TestComplete in a VM, which was not running on full screen, appearantly at a resolution which is not divided by 2. 

What I did to resolve it, was running the VM in fullscreen mode, which lead to a screenresolution dividabe by 2 (even numbers).

 

That did the job. So, now everything is working as expected.

 

Thanks all for thinking with me.

Hi, @mgroen2

 

It seems that the issue is related with resolution.

Is the 1904x977 the real resolution on your monitor, or it somehow related to non-100% monitor?

 

I prepared the new version of extension and re-attached it to this topic. Could you, please, try it?

I tried to fix the error but not sure that it helps to non-standard resolutions.

Re: Video Recording of Test Execution is Easy

Wow, I'm glad it helped!

 

I also create the issue for that:

https://github.com/SmartBear/testcomplete-videorecorder-extension/issues/3

Maybe me or somebody else can suggest pull request to avoid such issue at all.

 

Also I added support of 64-bit VLC played into re-attached extension.

Hi, yes it's not the real resolution, but it's related to non-100% monitor. I run TestComplete in a VM and when the VM is not maximed to full screen mode, the issue is occurring. Switching the VM to full screen mode resolves the issue.

I hope it's fixed for non-standard resolutions now.

I re-attached the script extension and commit fix on GitHub.
