Capturing Landing video on sepearte computer

Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone,I fly the Flight1 ATR using FS Flight Keeper and FS2Crew. One idea I had was being able to record my landings and then have a custom field in FSFK point to that file. The option in FSFK is easy enough defining the path in the Custom fields set up. So the difficult part is getting the video. I can't use the default FS flight video because it crashes whenever I try to play it back. Fraps would be a good idea, but I don't want to switch to the outside view as I'm coming in for a landing. So my thought is to use WideView on a second computer, install FS9 to include all add-ins, and use Fraps on that.Does anyone use WideView? And what kind of problems would I run into? Are there performance issues that I need to know about?Thanks for any info.-Matt

This short answer is yes. Now using FS Flight Keepers reports I should be able to deploy a web version of the flight, with streaming video embedded in the report itself. Should be an interesting project.
