I want to file a bug report, but my bug videos are buggy and don't show up in firefox :( does anyone have suggestions for file formats I can upload on github and don't break? maybe whatever the weekly updates use?

broken-in-firefox.mp4

Joshua Nelson (Apr 05 2021 at 17:15, on Zulip):

nice, that worked :) annoyingly low resolution but it gets the point across image.png

Joshua Nelson (Apr 05 2021 at 17:16, on Zulip):

wow, it's surprisingly large, it's like 60 MB

Joshua Nelson (Apr 05 2021 at 17:17, on Zulip):

yeah github rejects anything over 10 MB unfortunately :( I guess I can just put the original .avi on google drive?

Viliam Vadocz (Apr 05 2021 at 17:22, on Zulip):

I think the easiest is to upload the video somewhere and post a link

Joshua Nelson (Apr 05 2021 at 17:27, on Zulip):

oh yay now kazam is using multiple gigabytes of memory for 30 seconds of recording :(

Joshua Nelson (Apr 05 2021 at 17:27, on Zulip):

I think the moral here is that all software is broken

sorry for the potato quality, ffmpeg is a maze of options

matklad (Apr 05 2021 at 17:37, on Zulip):

@Joshua Nelson if you use Linux, highly recomment Peek. if you don't use Linux, highly recommend NixOs :-)

Joshua Nelson (Apr 05 2021 at 17:39, on Zulip):

ok yes that worked much better! and the file was a normal size to start instead of having to use ffmpeg just to get it down from 700 MB :)

Joshua Nelson (Apr 05 2021 at 17:39, on Zulip):

github doesn't allow webm uploads but that seems like a github issue

Joshua Nelson (Apr 05 2021 at 17:40, on Zulip):

oh well it has not broken mp4 support, that's even better

Joshua Nelson (Apr 05 2021 at 17:40, on Zulip):

thanks!

matklad (Apr 05 2021 at 17:40, on Zulip):

webm also don't work with safary I believe

matklad (Apr 05 2021 at 17:42, on Zulip):

But yeah, as someone who've been through all of circles of hell with kazam, obs, simplescreenrecored and ffmpeg, peek is just such a great piece of software

I use OBS, the upcoming version works great on Wayland. And gifski for GIF conversion.
