I'm trying to capture/record a real time web conference with
streaming video coming in from everybody's webcams, but all of the
video boxes are just being recorded with a single image.
I called adobe support and they looked into it and told me
that there is some overlaying application that blocks you from
recording streaming video like this, but there is a way to remove
the application. He said that neither he or is supervisor know how
to do it, but that I should post this forum and some technical
support person would get back to me.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, I need to
get this figured out this week for some important stuff at work.

The technical support person for captivate said that there is
a way to record the live video with captivate, I just need to find
a way to remove the overlaying application that prevents it. Is
this true, or do did I just waste $700 on a software that wont do
what I need it to?
Hmmm, well I'm aware that Captivate can do Full Motion
recording. Normally you tap the F9 key to start it and F10 to stop.
But I've never known it to work anything near what I would call
flawlessly. The end result is nearly always less than satisfactory.
Captivate is a terrific product for what it does.
Unfortunately, Full Motion capture has never been its strong point.

Often you flat cannot record playing video - you might
capture a black
rectangle instead of the video you want. This is dependant
upon how the
video is playing, as often the video plays played on a
special overlay that
is 'above' everything else in the window
When you can capture the video, you will rarely get a
as doing so is very processor intensive. And if your video is
are asking a lot of your computer to complete all the tasks
download, decode, display and then capture and resave the
is really not a tool designed for this. People seem to have
better luck with
