With the official release of Adobe AIR and Flash Player 10.1 my article about screenrecording
with AIR 2.0 was also released yesterday at the Adobe Developer Connection. Check it out here.
It shows you how to use the new NativeProcess class with VLC and Ffmpeg to create a simple screenrecording tool.
We had a good time but now it`s time to move on. Rest in peace my friend…
That`s what you get if you give little unpriviliged kids too much power.
Just imagine if a company like Microsoft would act like this megalomoniac a$$ho%6es.
I was really waiting for the new MacBook Pro with my credit card ready but now I`m honestly thinking about switching back to M$$ after 3 years.
It`s like finding out your new hot girlfriend listens to Nickelback – what a dissapointment but at the same time maybe a refreshing eye opener.
Glad I can now save like 1500 bucks on my new PC and don`t have to spend them just to be cool – because Apple isn`t cool anymore.
Started my first serious app with Flex 4 and i can`t tell how much I enjoy it.
Have not heard so many AHHHS, WOW, F$%CK Yipiiiiiiiee from myself while developing for quite some time.
Don`t really want to add to the fake HTML 5/Flash is dead discussion (have not yet seen a year without this talk )
Only thing I can say is that great tooling and proved frameworks really matters to me…
Flex 4 – I love you!
Yeah yeah it`s been a while….
But here is something I just have to show. I guess you`ve all played with the awesome AIR 2.0 Beta so you know about the NativeProcess class and all the options we have now.
Basically the only thing you have to do is google for some cool cross platform command line apps and build a nice AIR user interface and you can build beautifull and powerfull desktop apps.
So one of the first things I tried was something that was on my wishlist for the flash platform for a long time – SCREENRECORDING!
This app records the users screen and encodes it to flash friendly mp4 files with h264 video.
Check out this screenrecording of my screenrecording app
I really plan to write an article about how to do this but i`ll never promise anything again
Ever tried to access some of the google data apis like for example analytics data export?
Because of the new header restrictions introduced in Flash Player 9 it`s no fun.
