    I've yet to really record much gameplay for YouTube as I have not found ideal settings. I believe that what I currently have set is fine, but I would grateful if any of you could point out subpar aspects in this short clip.

    There's nothing I can point out in that clip which would say you're doing anything wrong. Youtube compresses video and audio and your originals probably look better.

    Here is my video clip made with the GC1000: Diamond GC1000 Capture VS Screen Preview (MPEG to ...

    I am having difficulties converting 2gigs videos to 200 megs with good quality.
    The problem is that after converting them, the quality gets cropped and seems really scary :S

    I use fraps to capture screen and Windows live movie maker to convert them to 200 megs.
    Any help?

    Please if you have the time use ffmpeg to get the best quality compression. This is the BEST conversion software available

    Here's a website to assist in ffmpeg scripts,

    http://www.rodrigopolo.com/ffmpeg/

    Since you need a quick solution you can use Easy h264. The results are nice. Easy h264 uses ffmpeg and provides you with scripts in a GUI for users with low-mid ranged PCs. The resulting image file, like with ffmpeg, will be ready for youtube.

    Oh yes sir. Dxtory is one of the best, but recently openbroadcaster @ http://obsproject.com is now offering HDD recording as well as streaming with the same program. The results are pretty awesome.

    I used openbroadcaster to make the video files used for this comparison - Diamond GC1000 Capture VS Screen Preview (MPEG to ...

    You can make video files from full-screen games as well. I'd suggest doing a windowed captured as it is easier for your PC, but you can do full-screen game cap with the "Game Capture" option. Let me know if you want a video tutorial.

    The most AMAZING converter I have ever used!
    From 2.29GB to 41.3MB with 720p, outstanding quality.
    I am really surprised from ffmpeg converter.
    Thank you very much! :D

    Hey,
    I bought a new monitor which plays games in 1920x1080 resolution
    Can you suggest me a 1080p converter?
    The one you suggested gives only 720p output

    I wouldn't suggest going from 720->1080 if you intend to use it online.

    Are you referring to easy h264? That program will output to 1080, but there is no "youtube" profile for 1080p videos.

    home came from -> http://tweevo.com/easy-h-264-video-encoder/

    Yesterday into this morning I was streaming AntiChamber, blind playthrough, from beginning to end...

    The stream was just under 09:30:00

    If you're curious about the game skip around, but as a complete playthough I have to warn you it can spoil the game.

    Is it just ffmpeg or another program which uses ffmpeg. The program is pretty advanced. For help I think we need more information about what values you are assigning to your ffmpeg instruction. It is a command line application.

    Hi guys, i am trying to record assassins creed 3 gameplay using msi after burner( my prefered choice) , but it doesnt record the sound of the gameplay.
    I tried with fraps, it records the sound , but i dont like fraps it is very heavy for system and slows the game , reducing the FPS.
    BTW i have been posting my videos in techpowerup gameplay thread.
    I have recently surpassed 100 uploads :D

    try using the game recording options of openbroadcaster

    https://obsproject.com

    I believe it does a great job and the resulting videos are very small file sizes.

    I found the software difficult to use , and it gave no indication that the recoording had begun :(.
    Can you recommend any other software like msi afterburner(this i like), which is just for youtube uploads and gaming
