Demos that miss captures but should have one.

category: general [glöplog]
There are some very nice demos out there I am not able to watch now I don´t have any windows computers anymore. So a thread for demos that lacks captures is in need :)

(demoscene.tv is pain, I want to watch fullscreen on my TV)

Wishlist: (and remember it is almost christmas :D )

Outracks - Synthematics
Outracks - Blockbuster
Outracks - No kelvin
Kvasigen - Textmode :V

and the capture of Shitfaced Clowns - Newton never did this bitch is gone/dead link.

I don't really like captions on demos.

A script which could run unattended and auto-capture and upload etc. would be rather cool :)

that would be impossible for DOS demos. :D
Not really :)
It could run them in DOSBox and capture the audio and video output, and encode it to a nice video file...

DOS demos depend more on their environment than windows / linux demos do.
install directx drivers and your demo should work in windows. DOS demos, on the other hand, require XMS or EMS, some will not even run if an XMS driver is loaded, others need GUS, others may crash if a certain device is enabled, etc...
not really. if you're not careful it will look like shit (agreed, some of my captures actually do look bad too).
there'd be some major work involved to automate to make demos run, capture and upload them. and some decisions can't be automated. also some demos don't work at all in DOSBox. trust me.

If trickster is reading this: Where are your captures, mate. I'd still want to convert them if you give them to me...

Crystal Dream / Triton: Trixter captured it and wanted to give me the source files for compressing them.
China / Kolor: Crashes in DOSBox. Maybe I'll do a patch some time...
Montana / Kolor: Outputs nothing in DOSBox.
Multikolor / Kolor: Will capture it.

I'd like dose2 to be captured. It crashes (badly) on my machine for some reason and I'd really like to watch it + I think it would be a great addition to youtube.

a request to rarefluid:

i tried my best on kkapturing/crunching our Evoke-4k:

Large Hedron Collider by TRSI

i think its due to the deep iterations and very dark pixels appearing right next to very light pixels all the time...but i cant get anything done even in 350MB that looks close to the original. it really looks crappier than any youtube-vid i´ve ever seen !

so maybe you as an expert could help us out there please ?
would be appreciated and paid via krawallbrause next party we meet ;)
If you make a final with a proper resolution selector and one that actually outputs sound on my box, I could maybe help...
I do nearly anything for a beer, you know ;)

Did you use h264? What encoder? What encoding settings?
