How are people doing this?

Recommended Posts

How do people on YouTube make videos of them playing LCPDFR that are sometimes an hour long and in HD? When I use FRAPS, the file is already like 2GB after 2 minutes. 

 

What is the secret?

 

Thanks

For my last video, which ironically was an hour long, I used Bandicam; http://www.bandicam.com/uk/

 

The free version allows high-quality recordings of up to 10 minutes after which you can just hit the record button again. File sizes are much lower than fraps, rarely going past 1.5GB

After I upload, I usually delete the .wmv files...its risky but I have had no problems so far  :thumbsup:

Thanks, I'll check that out. The other thing I dislike about FRAPS is the files are in this weird WMV format that's rather glitchy.

That's a good idea but it takes a long time to upload such videos.

That's why I upload when I'm sleeping  :thumbsup:

By default the FPS counter overlay turns red when recording, just like fraps.

 

And when your 10 minutes is up, it'll make a small "ding" sound. All you have to do is hit the record button again

my last recording (i dont promote or link them) was over 120gb before compression.

 

remember fraps et al take raw video. you will need an industrial computer to record, play and compress all the same time without delay
