my monitor is 1920x1080, but recordmydesktop records in 1920x1072. Anyone know how to fix this?

It seams it can't be fixed. 1080 is not divisible by 16.


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.
