Welcome to page 9.

To record a video you need one of the latest work in progress builds of ZSNES. Get them here: http://zsnes.ipherswipsite.com/

You will need a copy of mencoder. For Windows users, I recommend getting mencoder here: http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer-win32.php
Place mencoder.exe in the same location as zsnesw.exe, you do not need any codecs or other movie programs installed.
Linux users, having mencoder in your path is fine.

If you want to compress the outputted audio, or compress it before it goes into the video as opposed to during, you will need a copy of LAME.
If you use Windows, you must get LAME from here: http://geocities.com/joecool22us/lame.zip
Any other copy of LAME for Windows will not work due to a bug in LAME.

Before you are able to dump an AVI, you must have recorded a movie first, it converts movies, it does not just dump video on the fly.

To play back movies, you'll either need the proper codecs or a video player with built in decoding of the video mode you selected.
I recommend getting mplayer which decodes anything created with mencoder. For Windows, you can get mplayer here: http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer-win32.php You can download the GUI version.

Advanced users can edit zmovie.cfg and tweak the settings if they want, and even use something other than mencoder and LAME as long as it supports encoding via stdin and you set it up properly.

Most of this movie stuff is actually so ZSNES can be compliant with Bisqwit's site.

considering you have helped them before... and that you like speed running... i started to realise that thats one reason for adding all this stuff.

edit: movie defaults work fine... i have no clue as to what kinghanco is on about.

I don't just help, I'm staff. Like I encoded the Wario Land 4 video that was just published.

And yes, I love the speed running. Been a member of Bisqwit's site from day 2 or something. Can't wait for the 100% Super Metroid run :)

This new movie support is great, thanks Nach and everyone else who helped implement it. :) For fun, I uploaded an AVI showing how to get to the Chris Houlihan room in Zelda 3.

Would have used this ZMV from Zophar's, but it desynced.

It may be simpler just to type out the website address w/o including the url tags. It will be applied automatically when posting.

Ah....I politely request and would deeply appreciate if one of you intelligent chaps would tell me the simple steps I need to take after grabbing the latest WIP in order to go about "dumping" movies. As in, what do I have to download, place in which folder, and select which option in order to make a nice and tidy movie I can put up on youtube?

(Geez, that was a massacre of grammar.)

I'm fairly competent with computers in general, but the word "codec" makes my eyes glaze over.

Look through the pages in this thread. You'll find your answer.

Okay, let me rephrase:

What do I need in order to make a simple xvid-whateverified AVI? I grabbed zsnesw-mov.zip - do I also need to fool around with this bloody mencoder stuff or is there a way to do this simply and painlessly?

To keep it simple.. you need to have mencoder (bundled with mplayer) in the path enviornment.. or in the same directory as ZSNES.. the codecs that are required by mencoder should be in the codecs folder which is a subdirectory that mplayer/mencoder uses.

download the following and place them in your zsnes folder...

[mencoder]
http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer-win32.php

[lame]
http://nsrt.edgeemu.com/lame.zip

then while playing in zsnes... record a zmv then choose the appropriat movie slot and click dump movie.

FWIW, a minor GUI bug (possibly already known):

Pressing the Dump Movie button while a ZMV is currently playing/recording will pop up the "MEncoder not found" message. This message should say something like "Stop all movie processes before encoding."
