Recording HD Gameplay Videos

Posted February 20th, 2009 at 7:15 am


I recently made the purchase of an HD PVR. From what I had read about it and watched samples of this would provide great quality HD recordings as opposed to the capture card I have been using which did not do HD. I’m excited to be able to produce some HD video content going forward.

So I’ve been experimenting some since hooking it up earlier this week. While everything was easy enough to get going I’m having an issue with the playback of the videos after they are uploaded to hosting sites. When the action picks up there seems to be some stuttering. This is despite how they play back perfectly on my computer beforehand. I’ve heard from some people who are seeing the same thing but others who aren’t, so I’m not sure what the deal is yet. But wow do they look incredible.

So I’ll continue to experiment with what to do with the files after recording and hopefully get that figured out. To watch a couple samples full size click here, here, or here and then make sure to select “Play in HD”. This is how you can view them largest and in the highest quality. You can also continue on to view the videos in smaller form.
