Computer crashing when compressing and saving videos
 
Well i was recording some Tf2 and i was recording it at 720p (barely) and then i start saving and compressing it to .avi,h264 and my computer crashes every time i try (crashes as in does not respond and the editing program (open shot for ubuntu 13.10) closes) could it be that my computer it just too bad to do that or is it something else, please help

-Nate

(and yes I've tried re-installing it)

You need a few GB of free ram or more. Some compression codecs will work better on systems with limited memory. More likely than not it is your [lack of] memory that is the problem, but it could be something else. Try different settings or different codec/program.

Are you using the same system for this as per your specs in your profile?

For what you are trying to do its probably too much for that system.

Encoding video takes a lot out of the system.

Either a memory or power issues.

You did see the part about a 380w power supply that is probably only as good as a 250w
