Fraps?
« on: January 26, 2016, 12:03:35 am »
So basically I want to capture some game footage as a side hobby. I dont really want to pay for a capture card and all the fancy jazz, and fraps is free. But, I think that it is poo quality and it just is almost a waste. So what i'm asking is, what is your guy's opinion on fraps? Would recommend or no? Thanks.

Maybe try obs(open broadcaster software) or nvidia shadowplay if you have a nvidia gpu.

I used the free version of Bandicam and it's okay. But it can only record for 9 or 10 minutes unless you buy it I guess.

OBS is definitely the way to go. Loads of options to fine-tune things, so that you can make it work even with lower-end equipment. It lets you put together "scenes" which are different recording configurations you can save to use as presets, or even change between them while recording. It also supports streaming directly to Twitch, YouTube Gaming, Ustream, and mostly all the others. I have several friends who stream on twitch regularly, and OBS is what they tend to use. It's fairly easy to use if you're using a capture card for a console, and is generally a lightweight program overall.

10/10 would stream/record again.  :thumleft:

If you or anyone wants any help in figuring out how to use it, just let me know, I'd be happy to help! =D

I agree OBS is really good for recording/streaming. Using the video tutorials will make it pretty easy to set up.

Thanks guys, i'm going to go with OBS and see how well that goes. Thanks for all the help, and if I got any questions, I'll be shure to ask them.
