Taksi – desktop screenshot, video capture/recorder

Continuing along the lines of giving back to the internet community, I’ve recently started working(playing) on an open source project called Taksi. (I have lots of free time it would seem). Its a desktop video recorder similar to Fraps. So instead of taking still (boring) screenshots of your work/play, you can actually record movies. It was a really great project started by Juce (Anton Jouline). Unfortunately it has not been updated in nearly 2 years. I’ve attempted to cleanup/extend the existing code. Heres my version of the sources for it so far. if you want to build your own version feel free. It does require VS 2003 and a DirectX SDK to build. For those lacking that sort of patience I also made an exe version here. Keep in mind this is alpha code.

For my full description of Taksi go here.
Here are the list of things I’ve done/fixed so far:

  • RC file for dialog
  • Replace CFG file with INI file/registry.
  • Replace logging system with logging class.
  • Record GDI movies?
  • MSI installer
  • Tiny graphic controls similar to iCord

Still Left to do:

  • Audio record support

  1. Hi,

    I’m a developer and I’m trying to find a way to capture screen in my own application.
    How can integrate taksi into my program? I know there is a dll in taksi, but how to use it?

    Best wishes,
