    What program to use for recording?

    Hey guys talon6758 here and I was wondering DOM, what do you use to record your videos? I want to start recording on the small world and I would like to know a good program.

    That's a good question. So good in fact that it deserves it's own thread. I have moved your post from the Small World Info and Whitelist Application thread to here.

    I'll let Dom answer your question though

    Hi talon! I was so excited to see this post, that I am answering it on the John! Hahahah! I personally use Fraps, it is a great piece of software that records raw video and sound to a (very large) file. From that point I use a really simple editing program, VirtualDub, with a few plugins: Xvid codec, and a fill effect filter.

    Fraps
    Pros:
    • records raw video of almost any game/media player
    • lots of customizable features
    • really easy to use

    Cons:
    • Costs money (not too bad if you are making money on youtube)
    • large file size from raw avi footage (if you dont have space)


    VirtualDub
    Pros:
    • FREE!!!
    • very simple
    • lots of plugins available (with an active community)

    Cons:
    • takes a little bit of learning to get used to the software
    • limited from the simplicity of the built in features (others you can plug-in)


    Also, when you get your recordings up, go ahead and post them for the community to see. I will also add you to the description of my videos and on my channel!

    Have fun!

    Me? Make money on youtube?? Thats the most un-realistic thing I have ever heard. My channel (GamersUnited88) has 7 subcribers and just over 300 total views. I use a program called Ezvid and it is terrible. I look forward to downloading Fraps, although I don't know how to edit it on another program. I would like you to check out my channel and give me some advice on how to improve quality. One more thing: On Fraps can I do voice while recording? Or do I have to record and then do the voice. Thanks for the help and I look forward to (hopefully) improving my channel

    You can do voice while recording.

    Some advice for better videos: Get a better mic (i watched a few vids and you seemed muffled), record in the game and NOT in the browser version, and finally... TURN OFF THAT RANDOM MUSIC!!! hahaha

    Have fun! Laterz!

    Thanks again for the advice, once again, I use Ezvid and you CANNOT turn of the music there has to be some backround music and thats why I am getting Fraps. I use a headset to record and I would like to know what you use to do the voice. Also if you use a headset too, what kind do you use. And finally, I cannot play in game instead of the broswer beacouse my computer wont let me download minecraft. When I open up the minecraft launcher it say NOT RESPONDING. I am working on getting the downloaded version though. When I get Fraps I will record on the small world server and (if I get whitelisted, but who knows?) the FTB server. I also need the downloaded version of minecraft to get the mod pack and I am working on it. Last thing, on this webstie and on your videos I like how you or InsaneJ respond so quickly. Lots of people don't. Thanks again.

    I realized this after I posted my other entry. I realized that to download Minecraft I would need to make a new account and I did. I am currently working on downloading it and I realized I would have to re-apply for the small world whitelist. My new account name is Talon6754 I wanted it to be something close to my old one. I hope you will add me to the whitelist.

    I use a headset for recording. I use the TurtleBeach X12 headset. It's pretty nice, not the best, but it does a good job. Also I have a pretty nice sound card on my New motherboard

    i also use fraps for recording and as Dom says its only downfall really is the size of the files (upto about 1.5gb per min of footage ) as for headset i use the Gamecon 780 also the Soundblaster Tactic 3D alpha thx headsets and found them both excellent and don't worry how many subs you have i only have 6-7 but you do it because you want to ...and you never know you may do/say something that will attract the viewers in but if not recording it will go missed forever ...good luck and when you get up and running i will add your link in with my vids and you never know one day you could be as good as Etho or even Dom
