I’ve recently started to record videos to demonstrate some capabilities of the Accord.NET Framework. Surprisingly, there were only a few, free, open source applications to achieve this goal – and none of them had all the features I needed.
It is, until I decided to roll my own.
As a demonstration, please take a look on the Youtube video sample shown below. However, note that Youtube actually reduced the quality of the video, even if you watch it in HD. The local copy produced by Screencast Capture has an even higher quality than what is being shown, while the generated video file occupied less than 2 megabytes on disk.
And by the way what would be a better approach to demonstrate the capabilities of the Accord.NET frameworks other than writing this application using them?
Well, actually this application has been created specifically for two things:
- to aid in the recording of instructional videos for the Accord.NET Framework, and;
- to serve itself as a demonstration of the use and capabilities of the Accord.NET Framework.
This means the application is written entirely in C# making extensive use of both aforementioned frameworks. The application is completely open source and free, distributed under the terms of the GPL, and a suitable project page is already being served on GitHub.
Hope you will find it interesting!
