No FPS (Frames Per Second) on the recording target

If you can't see the green FPS number, please see the solutions below

The green number (FPS: Frames per second) indicates the frame rate of the targeted screen (Games, streaming videos).

1. Start Bandicam before the recording target

Bandicam can provide good FPS recognition when it is run "before the target program." (It is recommended to run Bandicam "ahead of the target program" as much as possible.)

2. Uninstall Bandicam, and download the latest version

- Download:

3. Press "Alt + Tab" twice, and then try again.

4. Use the 'Game Recording Mode'

If you use 'Screen Recording' mode, the green FPS number will not be shown.
The green number (FPS) will appear if the target runs DirectX/OpenGL technology.

5. If you still have problems, reinstall your graphics card driver and DirectX

6. Windows Games/Apps (UWP), EA games

1) If you run the games on EA(Origin), please uncheck "Windows Apps (UWP)view" and "In-game overlayview."
2) If you run the Windows Games/Apps (UWP) from the Microsoft Store, start Bandicam, go to General -> Advanced, and check the "Windows Apps (UWP)view" option.

7. When you can’t use Game recording mode, try "Specific window" recording

  • If FPS does not appear on the game target in Bandicam Game recording mode, try using the 'Specific window' recording mode instead.
  • For example, you can record a flash game by selecting a specific flash game browser window in the background.
