Seeking to record gameplay videos on PC -- Software recommendations?


Well-known member
Anyone have any recommendations as to recording games videos on PC?

Does Adobe have any products like this?

What products do you guys use?

Personally I'd recommend Mirillis Action, as it doesn't impact performance and you can compress recorded videos down to a reasonable video size, without really any loss in video quality. However, if you're looking for a free solution, OBS will do the job; you'll just have to do a bit of tweaking to get the most out of it.

Afterburner also do an amazing video recording codec, but I don't think they've completely nailed the audio (mic) recording just yet.
Last time I checked it was one or t'other.
I do believe, it's based on/using Dxtory.

Bandicam seems to be working well for me so far of the ones I have tested. OBS had quality issues. I am going to test Dxtory and others soon :)

I have used Action to great effect, its personally my favorite offline recorder.

When I stream, I just have OBS and xSplit with the correct settings also record the broadcast with the proper codecs, which is just as good as any other program.
