    Hi :)

    I've watched some of the videos on YouTube made by Arkadians and I was wondering, how do you film your activities like that?

    I've tried to find info online, but I don't really know what I'm looking for so I'm now totally confused.

    Thanks!

    Raptr includes a video capture capability called PlaysTV. I've accidentally used a couple of times.

    http://support.raptr.com/support/so...re-the-system-requirements-for-video-capture-

    http://plays.tv/

    The other choice is an external capture that some of the streamers use which might be better if your system isn't powerful enough.

    There's also some info on twitch

    I used to have raptr (came free installed on my new PC) and found it a little bit annoying as it kept popping up messages and trying to make me use play tv all the time so uninstalled it

    I think this guy used the two pc approach, one streaming with capture board and webcam and another running the game as his machine restarted thanks to windows 10 update.



    I turned off most the stuff in Raptr including the playtv, I accidentally recorded some stuff and used 30-40gb on crap. I only keep it around for my tag.
