(It is also missing in the graphic which accompanies the text in this article:ht4024)

 

While the default behavior (file is saved locally in ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX/Data/Library/Autosave information/Unsaved QuickTime Player Document.qtpxcomposition) seems to work fine for users with mobile home directories, users with network home directories are unable to record on Mountain Lion machines.

 

I believe that by changing the default save location to a local writable space, we could avoid the issue, but the option to change the default save location seems to be missing.

    You just Export it and save it wherever you'd like, or you can "Share" it to various video sites or iMovie as a clip.

    Unfortunately, users with network home spaces can't begin recording, so we need the 'missing' option to set the destination BEFORE recording. I should mention that the network home directories in question are on an NFS volume.

    Does this path, or any part of it exist?

    ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX/Data/Library/Autosave information/

  • Micmac3 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes, the path exists, but the directory is empty.

  • Barney-15E Level 8 (46,274 points)

    Perhaps it cannot write to that directory for some reason.

    You might be able to create a symbolic link, replacing ../Autosave information/ and point it to somewhere on the user's Mac or an external device.

     

    I have no way of testing it, so I can't say if it will work.

    You need to specify where to save it after the recording is made. Click the stop recording button on the menu bar top right. The File>Save and navigate.

    Do you know if there is a way to change the autosave location to be on an external hard drive to make sure memory won't run out in the middle of a long recording? I can't tell how much data a 3.5 hour recoding with audio through Soundflower for example would take. Cheers!
