Black screen but able to record sound

Hi guys, 

I have been unable to record my screen. It comes up as black but I can see my cursor moving around. I can also successfully record sound. 

I need to point out I am using the 30 day trial, and I am using a mac with Wine installed. 

I was wondering if anyone could help me please?

Do you know if the content that you are trying to record is using hardware acceleration? Unfortunately, FlashBack is unable to record hardware accelerated content and the result of trying to record this sort of content will be a black screen with the mouse cursor moving on it and sound - in otherwords, the symptoms you have described.

Does the content that you are trying to record contain any video settings such as an 'Enable hardware acceleration' option that you can disable or a Rendering setting that you can change to 'software'?
I had the same problem, except I've recorded using the same program for over an hour with no problems. Is there any reason as to why it's a black screen now? Also, is there any way to fix the recording at all? If not, then I have all this lost footage as well as no way to prevent this from reoccuring considering the software I'm using doesn't have any video settings.
What software are you trying to record?
