Fraps, videos, & stuff.

Post by fantasticbaby on Wed 12 Mar 2014, 13:55

hiiiii,

i've been wanting to start making my own Let's Plays and I've already myself a copy of Fraps and dear the file size of the video is hella massive. So I was wondering if anyone here is experienced in uploading Let's Play videos or any type of videos at all onto Youtube and preferably long ones, if you guys could give me detailed tips on video compression and conversion (without losing much of the original quality).

i've got this 16 minute video of me creating a sim and it's taking hella long to upload. I mean it's been almost an hour and it's only got up to 26%. Sad

i have tried googling it i swear (my history is currently all about video compression and youtube and how to's) but i just can't get a specific enough answer to actually help me.

i have tried handbrake, virtual dub and a lot more that i can't remember and windows live movie maker is what i prefer out of all of them.

hopefully someone can help me out. (and please move this topic to the right one just in case i'm in the wrong section!!)

thank youuuu Smile



Mod edit: Topic moved to "Software". Smile

Hello there,

I don't do in-game filming, so I can't really help you.
But I once used FRAPS too record a little bit of gameplay. Doesn't FRAPS have a built-in "select quality" option? (Lowering the resolution also helps, but I'm not sure if that is what you want)

I can't really remember what I did, but I think I used a program with "dub" in it's name - can't recall what program it was - to shrink down the filesize.

Hi there,

That's definitely an option, but it's not really optimized for in-game recording, so it might not work correctly.
I once tried to record a little bit of The Sims 1 gameplay, for one of the instruction videos, but it didn't work out very well. The game screen was shrunk down somehow.
