Summary: dogtail-run-headless should have an option to record a
movie of the fake X server
Version: CVS HEAD
AssignedTo: dogtail-maint gnome bugs

QAContact: dogtail-maint gnome bugs
GNOME version: Unspecified
GNOME milestone: Unspecified
It would be useful when reviewing logs of test execution to have a movie of
what happened, to go along with the log file. So dogtail-run-headless should
have an option to record a movie of the X server. Potentially it could also
create a thumbnail version of a still from the end of the movie, when reviewing
large numbers of logs.
My current favourite candidate is "byzanz": as well as a well-implemented
applet for taking screencasts, it contains a "byzanz-record" tool which
captures an animated gif file of an X server. It appears to currently work
with a duration of capture; we'd rather have it run until the X server itself
goes away, but this is probably fixable. It's in gnome-cvs as "byzanz", and is
e.g. available within Fedora Extras.
