Description FirstLevel 2013-02-08 14:21:41 MSK
Description of problem:
If I use qt-recordmydesktop with screen resolution 1680x1050 I see that recording video has resolution 1680x1040
I think that is because output of recordmydesktop is 

[bash@Home-PC ~]$ recordmydesktop
Initial recording window is set to:
X:0   Y:0    Width:1680    Height:1050
Adjusted recording window is set to:
X:0   Y:4    Width:1680    Height:1040
Your window manager appears to be KWin

Is there any possibility to make recording video with same resolution as my screen?

This is upstream restrictions that are unlikely to be fixed.

Let me quote appropriate Debian bug (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=549262):

"RecordMyDesktop enforces both coordinates of the offset of the recorded area
to be divisible by 2, and of its size to be divisible by 16. These restrictions are not documented. According to comments in the code, they come from MIT-SHM constraints."
