So i'm tryign to record my gameplay but the videos come out choppy especially when a lot of stuff happens it'lljust be blurry. I looked aroudna nd somepeople were saying you need a good harddrive to recorD? I use DxTory for recording and the speed of my hard drive is 111 mb/s idk if that's slow or what but can someone help me figure this out? 


here is my latest video i uploaded. 


As you can see it'sjust really blurry and choppy :L idk how to fix this, All of my recording settings are correct.

I don't see the choppiness, but the blurriness is the result of compression. It looks better when the scene doesn't change much, and looks ugly when you move fast and the scene changes rapidly.


I'm not familiar with Dxtory, but generally, increasing the bitrate will help reduce those compression artifacts. It will increase the recording's file size, though.

Hard drive size is a basic consideration...to the extent that the designated storage partition/drive must be large enough to contain the captured video files.  Any hard drive today is certanly fast enough for recording video, IME.


You may want to run chkdsk /r and then defrag any partitions/drives used to place captured video.  If the storage drive is a SSD....then do not defrag.
