Right, I’m having a problem with the Source Recorder. I do everything as normal (set the game to Windowed, sv_cheats 1, host_framerate 30, cl_drawhud 0, yadda yadda), startmovie <name> avi, and when the little codec selection box pops up, the FFDshow codec that I have installed doesn’t work, it just doesn’t show up. The only two options I have are Uncompressed (which is, well, uncompressed) or Microsoft Video 1 (which completely and utterly sucks if you want to record anything over 60 seconds).
So I uninstalled the codec and re-installed it, getting the Basic K-Lite Codec Pack and installing it as normal. Nothing.
Removed the file “hl2.exe” from the blacklist of FFDshow (it was blacklisted?). Nothing.
Added “hl2.exe” to FFDshow’s whitelist. Nothing.
System Restored to a previous install. Nothing.
It’s driving me abso-fucking-lutely insane. Even more annoying, it works perfectly on Left 4 Dead! It’s an excellent codec, and I’m damn pissed that I can’t actually USE it. Any ideas?
