free it would easily be the most popular recording ever
EnderKelchHD: thats weird because one minute with my fraps is 898 mb
Socially Ahkward: you forgot to mention how bandicam and dxtory allow you to use external
codecs to improve video quality and sometimes framerate. and the separate
audio channels in all of them except fraps.

Fame Sykoh | Thrusts Rushs: Action is the best screen recorder but it cost SO Much money and fraps

NINJA BOB: Mirillis Action is my favorite. I love the quality, all the options, and
the features are perfect for what I do. In action you can actually use two
webcams, I have been waiting to use the second for playing minecraft with
CactiSlam: Dxotry.....confusing for idiots.....simple for people who give a crap about
how their recordings look!
EnergY | PC Gaming: Dxtory is so laggy.
LloydyBoyXD: The only problem I think with Fraps is that the file size is way too big. I
can't pre-record anything because it takes up all the hard drive space. One
World of Warcraft video was 94GB and another was 102GB
ZALCROM: Bandicam full is the best :) (my opinion)
xLukePlays: but there's ezvid, camtasia, and mincrosoft expression encoder to consider
Proscent: Thanks! this video is really good and helpful :)
aXBlackDeathXa: First - good job OP thanks for taking the time and sharing.
I have used all of these programs and would like to chime in here.
The thing you need to bear in mind here FRAPS is recording RAW (aka
lossless) AVI's that is why the files are so huge (in upwards of 100mbps).
All the other programs compared here are encoding (compressing) on the fly
(10 to 30mbps) which requires more CPU and sometimes may cause performance
issues or poor output quality (depending on settings).
If you want a simple interface - don't mind working with large files sizes
- or require high quality / lossless files use FRAPS.
If you are highly experienced and understand video compression, codecs,
etc. Dxtory can be a great choice. It is extremely powerful but at the
cost of complexity in terms of setup.
If you are any range from beginner to experienced and want a good solid
middle of the road solution Action is the way to go. It does a good job
overall and is simple and easy to use however at the lack of advanced or
custom encoding features / settings.
I would only recommend bandicam for instances where you don't require high
frame rate / excessive quality (like tutorial videos / screen recording).
I would not recommend it for fast paced high fps games.
If your PC isn't that powerful and you're experiencing frame drops /
recording lag with any of these solutions your best alternative is to
purchase a dedicated recording device (internal card or external USB).
Something like the Black Magic Intensity Pro, Elgato Game Capture HD,
etc.. These devices offload all the work of encoding (compression) from
Blake Hunter: BandiCam Sucks Alot...
xcazy: Mirillis best no lag at all just drop only 2fps 1fps ;)
LonelyKitti Gaming: You have by far the best computer ever!
KuleGhost: Nice! You're video is very straight foward and unbiased. Hats off to you
SynisterFour: Im gonna stick with bandicam ...... i can just use the quick sync feature
so bandicam will comprese it to H.264
mazen elgendy: I like fraps better, i have 2 gb ram and 2 gb graphic card nvidia, and no
recorder good for me. i tried fraps fixed all my problems.
Keagan Willcocks: Action is beter
ContemptDisgustHate: This is easily the best and most useful comparison video I've seen. Thank
Мартин Йорданов: bandicam is no for record on game
Moktovish2: With dxtory you have to change the settings and like me I get it with no
lag. Plus you're using the trial version which is a little different.
xLukePlays: i personally use fraps now, but i started off youtube using
SpyralMask: Fraps lags 10 times more than dxtory, how were you not lagging in fraps but
in dxtory? Did you switch the codec or something?
BlueCreeperGaming: I tried bandicam and fraps and fraps stood out to be the best for me. I'll
go ahead and try distory or some crap and see if it is better
Manuel del Busto: OBS! Great performance and free! but it does not work in some games like
Rain Tard: Why does fraps have to look so good :(
Swarth Gaming: Mirillis is really nice, I would highly recommend it, even though the cost
is a bit higher, its worth it.
Insanity Luc: They all have free trials, but most of them are useless.
Bandicam's free trial gives a huge amount of lag, a very big filesize and
you can only film for 15 seconds (Free version)
Fraps is not that bad but it can not record your destkop and specific games
(Free and full version)
Action has a 30 trial and gives the best quality everything is unlocked for
you and paying 25 euro for the full version is definitely worth it in my
Minecraft Prodigy: ive been looking for a recording software for so long because all the one I
get cause lag, I have a beefy computer and I get about 160-200 fps in
minecraft but for some reason when I record I goes down to 20, and before
anyone says I dint have vsync on, but then I get action! and I can get from
30 to 100, easily. if anyone has this problem too, try out mirriles action
its great, and I prefer it over all the other and not just because of the
