Any Video Converter and CamStudio

(Dec 16, 2008)

I tried to convert AVI video files created by CamStudio to the WMV format. After searching the Internet for good candidates, I decided to use 'Any Video Converter' to do the job. It works well if the number of frames per second in an AVI file is 30.

CamStudio, however, may increase the number of frames per second if your machine is fast. To make the change, go to 'Options->Video Options' and uncheck 'Auto Adjust'.

Any Video Converter is available at http://www.any-video-converter.com
I use a free version (see the bottom of its webpage)

CamStudio is released under GPL. Its website is at http://camstudio.org/

Issue in C++ File Stream

(Dec 13, 2008)

I encountered a strange file writing/reading issue in C++. I don't understand why closing a file and re-open it does not do its job well. After consulting with Prob (my friend), we can fix this issue by 'clear()' after 'close()'.
