So, I really need a recording program for my computer.

So far, everything's made it lag the game ridiculously, and I, personally am not a fan of laggy let's plays.


I need to find a program that's preferably free that won't make my game lag more than it does (it sticks here and there)


I've tried livestream procaster, but that made it lag so badly.


I donno if this is just my computer? Is there a way I could change my settings to make it more compatible, or should I send it in to get a better hard drive? I'm using an HP laptop, but I'm not sure of its information.

Thanks for any help!

It all depends on the graphics card. Do you have an Intel Core?

I have a Vision AMD processor. Not sure if that's a core xD my other computer has intel, but it's old and laggier than this one.

I have that, too, but it lags still :(

Do you know if there's any settings I have to change? I might have to clean up some things on my computer... I really don't have a lot

I think I'm going to try to find a way to make the computer run faster using camtasia. I have no idea how though

Unfortunately nothing much can be done. You have an integrated graphics card, which means almost no matter what you do (unless you get a dedicated graphics card or a better processor), Minecraft will continue to lag no matter what screen recorder you use.

If FRAPS lags your computer, then you need a better computer.

I haven't tried FRAPS on this computer, but I'm not a fan of its layout. I'll look into getting a better graphics card or something lol

If you have only an HP laptop to use for Minecraft, you'd have to buy a new one.

You can upgrade desktops because the parts are literally in pieces, but because of the infrastructure of a laptop (the size) they have to integrate everything together to fit it into a laptop shell.

Try Playclaw. The creators just recently made it lag even less and it doesn't rape your disk space like fraps. Trial has unlimited recording, but a watermark on top.

hmm i would recommend getting a better laptop (if you have one) or a new graphics card altogether. Then get bandicam. sure, it costs money, but hey, you get what you pay for.    :P

Looks like you have to get a better computer from the preferences that you wanted, looks like you can't the "best" recording software (misleading title).
I make videos on Youtube, check it out! :P

ok it could be that you have tons of useless bits in other places like error forms or other games.
Try erasing old files and other stuff like that
