Bug Description

Binary package hint: gtk-recordmydesktop

Pressing the cancel button while the video is encoding stops the encoding as expected but leaves behind an incomplete video file. In my opinion this video file should be removed automatically.

Using package gtk-recordmydesktop 0.3.8-1ubuntu1 on Ubuntu 10.04.

It is an expected behavior in the sense that gtk-recordmydesktop is just a Graphical front end for recordmydesktop which does the same on cancelling encoding.

But I believe this bug qualifies to be in "wishlist".

Problem persists in gtk-recordmydesktop 0.3.8-3ubuntu5 in 11.04 beta2 as well. Hence confirming.
