          The lag is caused by the screencast program:

          In this video it is a bit choppy due to the screencaster. In reality it feels much snappier and smoother.

                Damn... Even videos with screencast induced lag shows why we need Wayland! Wayland and proper free AMD drivers and here is NO area where the crap from MS will be able to perform better.

                  Weston has a built in wcap utility that records directly to webm video.

                    So how do you actually build it for wayland?

                    Code:
                    launching '/usr/bin/orbital-client'
                    launch
                    Failed to load platform plugin "wayland". Available platforms are: 
                    linuxfb
                    minimal
                    offscreen
                    xcb
                    edit: ok, that message is from qt5. My qtwayland doesn't seem to work.

                      Pardon my ignorance, but why is there lag in the recording? I understand it's only in the recording, but I thought Wayland/Weston would never have any lag or artifacts.

                      Am I just missing something? Please elaborate or feel free to correct me.
                      The policy is frames have no artifacts, and are presented in an ordered fashion (i.e., you will not see anything "going back and forth" in the render). Recording usually implies a fixed number of frames per second. If frames and recording are not synced, you might see some lag on the record. At least, I understand it this way.

                          mmm, this is disturbing, if this demo was recorded using a native wayland utility and laggued, things are not so superior as they have been sold to us.

                            The state of the native recording tool is a good indicator of the whole project, because...?

                              Oh please enlighten us how HW never will come in to play... Never mind the fact that under stress it seems to operate exactly as promised.
