I'm currently using

rt.exec("C:\\VLC\\vlc screen:// --dshow-vdev=screen-capture-recorder --dshow-fps=10 -I dummy --dummy-quiet --rate=1 --video-filter=scene --vout=dummy --scene-format=jpg --scene-ratio=1 --scene-prefix=snap --scene-path=" + path +" --scene-prefix=scap vlc://quit");

to take my screencaptures. I read that you can insert "$T" in the scene prefix to get second-level accuracy for screencaps, but I end up with titles like "scap$T00001.jpg."

It looks like other people have had the same problem and it was fixed?.

However, I tried it on 3 different versions of VLC (most recent, 2.0 and 1.0) and none of them worked for me.

Can you suggest either

  • A workaround to get millisecond level timestamps?
  • A way to take the screenshots in atomic time?
