Wazoa: I use Fraps, and I've never had any problems with it (aside from the HUGE
Omeed Zolali: Action is the best recording ever but the problem is the price if it was
free it would easily be the most popular recording ever
Bigglesworth Gaming: How do you not have that stupid watermark on Action!?
Mrchili: In mirillis action, it only records for 5-10 seconds for me, do you know
Pickle Grawey: You also have to pay for fraps....
Swarth Gaming: Mirillis is really nice, I would highly recommend it, even though the cost
is a bit higher, its worth it.
AserGaming: fraps make huge file sizes but after editing the files the size drop down
so what's the problem?
xcazy: Mirillis best no lag at all just drop only 2fps 1fps ;)
HitZ Gamer: the best 2: action and dxtory
OneJacobOfMany: I had a really good experience with Bandicam in trialing it. I actually
stumbled to here because I am considering Action as well. One thing to
note, and that you may want to include in your description, is that if you
monetize your videos then you need the $50 license of Action.
Spetzy: I like Fraps because it have a recording pause buffer system. and Action
because it have multichannel sound recording.
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?
AnnoyingcyberGaming: I used Fraps, But I Use Dxtory Now, As It Small File size :)
MsBlackOps: I'm not sure if i want to get Mirillis because i don't know how long it
would record if i got it for free.
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.
DanishARMA2: i see in this video he also has dark videos when using mirillis action this
is a real problem for videos that have lowlight or night everything else is
good but it darkens the videos
Tristan herle: I don't know what to choose! mirillis or fraps?
Wolfy456games: You could change audio of your games recording with Sony Vegas pro if you
are using dxtory and that's something fraps can't do
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
BlasianMane: Not Going to LIE: Mirillis Action is Great. I would Get Mirillis Action if
there License to buy wasn't $50.00. TBH Fraps is Free only problem is the
Huge file sizes. (Recommend at least a 2TB external harddrive) Also if your
are running an i7 whether its mobile or desktop, fraps shouldn't affect it
too much as you have 8 cores which most games don't even fully utilize
leaving it open for FRAPS to use. GoodDay.
ZzLegendaryzZ: Is quick sync possible on an i5 4670k?
joaososa2008: Action IS BETTER!
EnergY | PC Gaming: Dxtory is so laggy.
Ricardo Esteves: I've experienced quite a few bugs with DxTory too, like the audio being out
of sync or the recording having some lag spikes without me even noticing
it. I'm going to purchase Action, which is actually quite affordable too.
AbstractWolf: 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
TheUmbreon_Gamer: I Went And Tryed All 4 Of Them And
I Think Mirillis Action Is The Best Out Of All Of Theses
SynisterFour: Im gonna stick with bandicam ...... i can just use the quick sync feature
so bandicam will comprese it to H.264
ChinoRicco: Action #1
Proscent: Thanks! this video is really good and helpful :)
Ibrahim Yetkin: i record with bandicam still im happy with it ^_^ no offense
TeK RaVeN: So far this software is better than Fraps & Dxtory.
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
BonnyChief: Fraps is the best
Junvrak: dxtory i get small file sizes and still get hd gameplay and don't any
Slize N. Dize: fraps records the best quality but action all the way
EWOK :): mirilis action is much better !!!
TheDerpyDog: Fraps recording sizes are generally to big
NoobaGutt: fraps is pretty good. it isnt much of a big deal if you have 1 TB or more
Kakarot The Saiyan: handbrake
Mina Plays: Just got Mirillis Action, I have to say: 100% Worth the money.
EonGuardians | Enatias: there's something I came across to Mirillis Action recently, and that it
started to get a little laggier on 1.17. mainly because I need 50fps and
AVI inorder to run no lag gameplay video. and I'm having a bit of a hard
time getting out. so I will only use 1.16 until they can fix the issue!
Spadraig Gaming: For Bandicam and the lag, all you have to do is 1 change the settings on
bandicam or 2 lower your graphics on the game.
harcibarack: Awermedia 4ever!!! Mirillis Action the best from these. Dxtory and Fraps
both very good. Bandicam and camstudio also reliable, but these are not for
gameing recording like the others, so it was a bit unfair for poor
Bandicam. At least these all better than other p.o.s-s like camtasia.
Fanto speed: miliris want the action is in my channel the portable suvi
Tristan herle: im choosing mirillis
Gummy Deer: Mirillis action doesnt record games with swiftfx on i dont know y any one
knows how to fix it?
Pickle Grawey: Actually CaptainSpaklez is using Dxtory and he has 7mill subs, also their
is only about 1 video with frame lag and that is because his computer
lagged a bit not the actually program itself.
Pushaty Bruno: If you want to download Miriliss from the original website, which one do
you choose Home use or commercial use ?
Bowser Koopa: so i went to get mirllis action and i saw two versions home and commercial
the later being $20 more. so i clicked "Which license type do i need?" and
basically if you plan on making youtube videos you need to get the
commercial version so your up to 50 bucks to make youtube videos
