I wanted to make videos many times, I just dont know what to use. I tried Fraps which is really bad (i.m.o.) because it lags the crap out of my PC while recording, and it also takes up space like: 4GB for 2minutes (like...WTF?) Could you tell me a recorder that you think is the best for an avarage computer? Thanks for viewing!

    You can always try out CamStudio. Seems alot of people here liked it.

    Well, Fraps is the best. There is a program called Gamecam, but it doesn't have the kind of support or quality that Fraps does.

    well that's cuz fraps records in .AVI format which i honestly hate. I've made 3 dod videos with it and after 1 game full of recording (and pwnage) i'd have like 7gb worth of video, although it's about 7 minutes worth of pwnage.

    Well, a higher quality video results in a larger file size. Whenever your done editing and making your video, just delete the unused footage.

    I have 500 Gigs of HD space though, so you guys might not be as fortunate.

    "4GB for 2minutes (like...WTF?)"

    That's one helluva bitrate..... or it's an uncompressed AVI. I've made that mistake before....

    Actually, I'm not sure how you can do that, though. Most hard drives can't record that fast.

    Oh please. If you really want to help, then tell me that if I cant record with Fraps then probably cant record with anything. You know, it doesnt feel so good when you wait for 1 and a half year to collect enough money from changes and monthly pocketmoney to buy a computer, then someone comes and says its shit. I feel like I worked for this. Please either try to help or apoligize and leave.

    Have a good day.

    I do have the full version. Actually my problem isnt really the lag because it doesnt lag so bad, the problem is with the file size.. I recorded a 2minutes video and it was 4GB 8-\

    Fraps is shitty because it saves it's movies as enormous files, and it doesn't necessarily mean the computer sucks if Fraps lags it.

    Anyway, for Steam games, just use the Steam Recorder, it's much better. When you're recording, it appears to run like shit, but don't worry, instead of loading it straight to a video file, it's recording the sound and taking screenshots at the same time. Be sure to have a program that can put all the screenshots, along with the sounds, into a video.

    But please let this thread die, I've posted this weeks ago and people still find it (somehow).

    You need to compress the .AVI file. And 2 minutes will result in 4 Gb yeah. Try to run it for like 15 minutes or longer you will still have about 4 Gb. Edit it in Movie Maker and you can adjust the quality and the filesize.
