Hello, i recently downloaded minecraft pi edtion and tried to use it on my pi, but it didnt work, i soon found out that you needed a specific operating system, so i switched to "wheezy".... Anyway thats sort of goes onto my next point, while i was using the old operating system i saw a program while searching through aptitude (shop based in LXTerminal) and it was a screen recorder so i had thoughts about recording pi edition on it, so i downloaded it. When pi edition came out and it didnt work, i wass kinda... 'unhappy'... So i dont know if you can do the same on wheezy but if you can then this would kinda be a big deal.... a cool deal, pi edition is basically pocket edition but on the pi... heh heh ... anyway, my main point is if i can get this working then we will get let's plays, tutorials and more on the pi, NOT just on Pi edition!Posted Image Posted Image

I found that screenshots didn't work. Screenshots would capture everything on the screen, except for Minecraft Pi edition, which would appear as a black rectangle. I have read that this is due to the low level hacks Mojang had to do to enable hardware accelerated 3D graphics on the Pi. (Because Minecraft isn't using X for rendering, screenshot utilities which capture pictures of the current state of X can't actually see Minecraft...)

Use a pvr, camera or capture card to record your game.
In full screen with 128MiB of RAM to the GPU it will struggle, but a good audience shouldn't mind.
Gone.

I think this is more possible, and less laggy, if you set up a remote X server on a PC connected to the same network, run mcpi through that, and record the PC's screen using regular software. That is of course assuming you would have access to a PC to use :P
