Time for a dedicated post for this media capture utility.
PBX Recorder will walk through all the VP tables found in Pinballx, launch each table and record/capture all your videos and/or images automatically. This is intended for 2 or 3 Monitor VP setups (Note: Desktop users - there is now a beta version for single monitor desktop users below). By default, PBX Recorder is setup to find and record missing media. There are options to re-record all media if desired. What to record and length of videos are all configurable.
NOTE: PBX Recorder uses the DirectB2S screenres.txt to figure out how to record the Playfield, Backglass and DMD. If the DMD portion of screenres.txt is not filled in correctly, you will have trouble with DMD video or screenshot capture. Try the included ScreenResCheck utility, to see exactly where PBX Recorder will record. (I have also attached it to this post if you want to try the screenres checker)
Version 1.2 adds basic support for automatic Wheel image download via FTP if you have Pinballx FTP access. To enable FTP support, open the FTPLoginInfo.txt file and put in your user info. If you do not have FTP access, the log file will always report a list of any missing wheel images.
Version 1.3 adds "Record complete media set for new tables only" mode, Drag and drop of VPT/VPX to record (must be in XML already). Ability to record in .mp4 format added. Ability to name media based on table or description names.
Here is a demo video.
