How do you record game video to be able to do this?

How do you record game video to be able to do this?

There are a couple of ways you can do it. Some users like to use software programs like fraps. I've also heard of users who use microsoft movie maker (built into windows) or other video software. In some cases, you can even use game screenshots put together into a video rather than taking moving video footage from inside the game. Players from fansite DDOCast (http://www.ddocast.com) have put together tips as well which can be found in episodes like this one (http://ddocast.com/2008/12/27/wandering-monster-special-ddocast-hosts-inside-know-your-role-plus-an-event.aspx) (there's also an older one about video making in episode 17).

I hope these tips help, but I'm sure there are other users who have great tips too! You can share your video tips in the announcement thread! (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=174286) (that way we can keep the nomination thread nice and clear)

I believe Xfire can also record video now, but I have no idea how or what the quality is like.

Also if you're posting videos into the DDO page on Facebook, don't forget to put your nomination in here in the thread! We won't assume that just because a video is in the facebook page that you were wanting it spotlighted ^^

Here is my video link to facebook.
