Best way to record gameplay video for youtube?

    I would like to make some gameplay videos. Is there a way to export the replays to youtube format from within the game? Or do I need to download special software to do this?

    I would like to upload to youtube at 1920x1080 at 60fps.

    How can I do this?

    You need recording software that will save replays in a format you can upload to Youtube. I see you use Nvidia so maybe give Shadowplay a go, it's free and pretty good. Otherwise you can try FRAPS which has a demo version and it's a very basic tool, easy to use, but needs purchasing for full features.

    It's been discussed before, give the search button a go. Here is one of the previous threads: http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?threads/recording-software.26021/

    I think you could try this: https://obsproject.com/
    It is for streaming, yes, but you can also "stream to disk" with it.

    It can be a slight pain in the rear bumper to get it working the way you want it to, but there are plenty of tutorials an guides about the right setups all over the interwebs..

    I think nVidia Share (aka Shadowplay) is what you need.

    Definitely Shadowplay. Set it to 1080p at 60 fps, and keep the bitrate on the high side, like 60-80mbps. You could go with less but you have to remember Youtube also compresses the file heavily after uploading. So the preferred method is to upload a very large file and let Youtube compress it to maintain most of the quality. Also if your PC supports it (stay above 60 fps when recording at 60 fps obviously) you can really increase the graphics to make the video look great.

    I tried ShadowPlay but I can't get the quality above 720p for some reason.

    It might have something to do with your native resolution beeing 2560x1600 :p

    For recording you could try setting it to 1920x1080, but im just guessing here.

    I've compressed like a 4GB file from fraps with Handbrake(software) to about 100Mb. Then uploaded to youtube and still the quality is nice :)

    i wouldnt recommend fraps with win10. unless the issue wiith avi files is only for some people. i switched to shadowplay as fraps doesnt work for me unless i convert the video after recording it.

    OBS is fine too.

    My desktop screen recording tool, Joyoshare Screen Recorder, can help capture my performance in gameplay. It supports customizing different recording size and adjusting codec, resolution, sample rate, etc. handily.
  14. Had tried OBS... clunky, not user friendly, too much room for error.
    used FRAPS... outdated, lacks options, not performance friendly.
    used Xsplit... user friendly, performance friendly, but started charging for what was once free.

    Been using Nvidia Geforce Experience (GPU) since the feature was added.
    Nvidia's feature is free, simple, user friendly, has no performance hit, and looks best in my opinion.
    Most users don't even realize it is a feature with modern Nvidia GPUs.
