The new game tsunami is coming with a host of new and upcoming games such as Skyrim which was released in the middle of November 2011.
Gamers all around the world are enjoying this astonishing game and also waiting for the next big releases like Diablo III, Grand Theft Auto V, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City to name a few.
These days, gamers are not just playing in front of a TV or a computer. Some of them meet new friends and chat with strangers in the game. Some people record their awesome gameplays and upload their commentary videos on YouTube. Some of them become YouTube stars because of their gameplay videos.
If you want to record XBOX 360 or PlayStation 3 gameplay, you need a capture card and game recording software. However, if you want to record your gameplay on PC, you just need a game recording program like Fraps.
Fraps is one of the most popular game recording software among game users. Fraps can record the original gameplay by DirectX and OpenGL hooking technology, so the video quality is better than other software.
Despite the high video quality, it has 2 problems.
One problem of this software is that it only can record DirectX/OpenGL programs; it can't record non-DirectX/OpenGL programs like flash or java games. Another problem of this software is a big file size. If you record for a minute, the file size might be around 1GB. Imagine! When you try to upload a minute video onto YouTube, it may take a very long time to upload the whole video. To avoid these problems, some people are trying to find Fraps alternative software.
Bandicam is a good alternative to Fraps because it records not only the DirectX/OpenGL programs like Fraps but also it can record anything on your PC screen including flash/java games. In addition, Bandicam compresses the video when recording, so the recorded file size is much smaller than Fraps without any loss of video quality.
As a result, gamers can get a high quality gameplay video and a reduced video file size due to the video compressing technology from Bandicam.
Why don't you record your awesome moments and figure out which game recording software is better.
