I've started watching a few videos posted on youtube showing a game player playing the game and providing external discussions of what is going on.  I can make screenshots, but that's about it.

 

Suggestions as to software/hardware to get me into this as a hobby...

Hi,

 

A long time ago when I was doing what your doing I was using Fraps. http://www.fraps.com/download.php

 

Thanks.

Download Ezvid and then follow the instructions. Type in the title, description and all that and you can even choose music for your vid if you want to. If you want no music then select silent machine. To record click the capture screen button and then click advanced settings and enable microphone capture by clicking on microphone capture disabled and then click start advanced capture now and then record the vid. Make sure that when you're doing this you go to the game's settings and switch the game from full screen mode to windowed mode and this must be done before filming otherwise you will get the dreaded black screen when filming these gaming vids. Once you're done filming then hit the stop button then wait a few minutes. Once that's done then click upload to YouTube and then sign in with you're YouTube account and then choose low, medium or high quality and then wait a little bit longer for it to upload then you're all set. Tell me if this works and respond here and I have experience doing this because I made TF2 and COD AW game plays and I put them on YouTube. Also I recommend that you buy a headset because you will need it when filming these vids. I hope that this helps. Happy filming.

Ok!  I'll get in a game when I get back home and have a little time to play with it.  Your instructions were most helpful.  I particularly like that you gave full directions without either assuming I knew more than I do know or assuming that I am just a simpleton (which might be more accurate).  Thanks.

Did you succeed in your mission to create gaming vids?

I make YouTube Videos and I'm very pleased with Bandicam. The free version has a 10 minutes limit per video and a small watermark on top of the screen. I'm using the paid version because I think it's worth it !

I prefer Ezvid over Bandicam.
