It’s been a while since I’ve tried to put dbus support into xvidcap. After nearly despairing at the time I’ve put it on the back burner due to the usual time constraints. Revisiting the issue I’ve come across this great tutorial. Finally somebody has put all the pieces needed together, thanks a million for that.
So, now I have a working xvidcap prototype, you can expect to get remote control functions for keybindings in xvidcap soon.
