I'm thinking that I'd like to start a video log of my Minecraft adventures, especially before I start exploring the Nether. Mainly for my own amusement, but this way if I die a humorous, pig-zombie-related death in there, I can share it with all of you fine people. :) Can anyone recommend some good, reliable, FREE video capture software for WinXP?

For free video editing software, I'm not too sure. Windows Movie Maker should be fine if you don't want fancy effects.

Though you requested recommended free software, i would say Sony Vegas Pro 8/9 Is the best for advanced editing (Throughout the Free and Purchaseable software). Though it has quite a large Price Tag.


EDIT: Misread Your post ><

My personal favourite is Fraps and Source Recorder (Source recorder is only available in Source-Based Games(e.g TF2, CSS, HL2, Sourcemods etc))

You can't support piracy here.

WeGame or GameCam might be your best bets at free recorders. Search them up. I personally don't like them, GameCam doesn't work with Steam, and WeGame...well, I just stopped with that one. It was ok.

My personal favourite is Fraps.
It is a single payment and you will have it for the rest of your life.

Microsoft Encoder Free has a new capture tool. It's limited to 10 minutes per capture but you can always string them together for longer productions.

Get it here:

I used it to make the video below but I haven't tried it specifically with Minecraft:

10 minutes is about the max length for people who aren't youtube partners anyway I think. Should be more than enough

I use Hypercam 3 which is hacked so it can be registered and I also use Camstudio. Though They aren't that good but if you find the right settings.

To whoever suggested fraps, I think not. Sure it's great quality and only one payment but NO.

I tried to use it, it's great but the recordings cut into 6 minute segments without letting me know. Those segments are also 3.9 GB. Someone would reccomend lowering the quality but It doesn't let me. There's no option to.

www.fraps.com

It is pretty much the best Screen recorder out there in my oppinion. It is pretty hefty on your system and will pull down your FPS a lot so be careful.

If not you could always use HyperCam or something like that. I used WeGame before I jumped over to Fraps.

Good luck with your problem!

Fraps splits long videos because the old 'n' crappy AVI file format has maximum file size of 3,9GB. Fraps also uses very low compression for video (this, together with special capture routines, also makes the performance of Fraps so great) so the recorded files are very large but you can edit and save them in a more suitable format.

WeGame didn't work very well on my old computer. The videos were laggy even with simple games.

I thought GameCam is not free... is there a free version of it?

Camstudio works somewhat with proper codec and low resolution. Uncompressed/"raw" codec (via FFDShow) may give you almost Fraps-like quality but as Camstudio is unable to split large files you can only record very short videos. Only 1 second longer than 3.9GB would allow and the file gets corrupted. Huffyuv works too and offers reasonable compression for game videos but it also needs a lot more CPU power or the videos will be laggy. If someone has found a good codec for game recording please tell it us!

If you have a video capture card (with hardware encoding!) connect it to your graphics card. I think it will give the best results.

Thanks to Remmi for the info about MS Expression Encoder, I will test it soon.
