Recording video- what is the best method?

Post by MikeyW »

Hi everyone,


So I am trying to make some videos, and after a lot of messing around, the best video recording I can get is here:

I turn game resolution to 800x600 and record it instantly on CamStudio which is free, using their own codec. I think if you use the tron recording software you can't really get a better FPS than by doing it directly.

Anyone got any better examples?

You could try going to http://www.screentoaster.com.

It's an online screen recorder.

You have to register, but it is free, and it can record in HD.

I don't know if its any better than CamStudio, though. I, personally, haven't used it myself. Its worth a shot, though. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

bringing this topic back up.

How come some users can get HD videos while I can't even have 640x480 videos of my screen?

expecially under linux, I tried different softwares, it never worked :(

Well some of us use high quality screen/game recording software. I use fraps and I think pr3 and liz use fraps also.

I haven't personally found anything nearly as good as fraps, in the Linux world.
