I tried to capture the desktop/screen-recording with this command

ffmpeg -f avfoundation -i "1:0" out.mp4

this doesn't work because avfoundation is a framework on OSX >= 10.7 and my OS version is 10.6.8 (snow leopard)

I looked at this FFMPEG devices reference. Now my plan is to install the right device in mac and than recompile FFMPEG to enable the device. I don't know which device i have to install. Is QTkit the right one?

  • tbh, I'd first question why still on 10.6.8… the rest would likely be fixed by updating the OS – Tetsujin Apr 18 '15 at 22:37
  • @Tetsujin I tried to update to Yosemite but fails all the time in the middle of the download (the message say that's because a connection problem). I tried also to create a new user and start a new download but the problem still there. I don't know why... – iianfumenchu Apr 19 '15 at 8:25
  • Then you'd have to try a different connection or get a friend to download it for you. – Tetsujin Apr 19 '15 at 8:28
