I am trying to capture video while working through a remote terminal.
Though the manuals don't really mention it, I remember this being
mentioned at a workshop I attended last year, that it is possible to
trick the IDV into capturing movies without actually sitting at the
terminal that the IDV is running at. I don't remember what the IDV
needs to carry out video capture. Does forwarding X11 data to the
remote terminal work?
You can run the IDV in offscreen mode and capture an animation sequence
using the isl scripting language:
The requirement is either you run on MS Windows, run with an active X
Server or run under a virtual
frame buffer (xvfb).
Not sure about the forwarding of X11 data. If you are interactively
running under X with an xhost pointing to a different machine
it should just work since the image and movie capture is just an image
grab of the screen area.
