They're still working on things and it's not perfect, but it's pretty good and works out of the box. You may need to update DirectX and possibly some drivers if they're out of date, but I had no big issues.

I'm happy with it.

Constant glitches make this whole program unable to be run for me, I have never even seen the menu it freezes my whole computer at the boot screen. Contacted support which did not help me at all. Waited for windows 10 thinking it could be patched, no luck. Asked for a refund but it was to late. Now it's just in my account to mock my mistake of spending money on it.

Just use OBS it's better and it's free. Don't waste your money here.

I used to love this software.
Take a look at my hours logged using (excluding the other hundreds using it offline), and you'll see that I really did love it.
It's video quality was amazing, it's impact unbelievably low.

But that's all before June of 2015.
That's when all the problems started to arise.
First it started out with the MP4 files not being recognized by Sony Vegas, even after reinstalling all of the codecs I use.
Then it made games unplayable.
The performance would be hit so hard the game would be dropped down to 14 FPS.
Then, it moved on to crashing the games entirely.
And after that?
Well, now Action! doesn't even open.

It's a sad day, but I think it's time this recording software be put to rest while everyone who used it had fond memories.
RIP Mirillis Action! - You Will Be Missed.

The software is easy to use, lets you keep the good framerate in your games (Unlike Fraps), and has a lot of customization. You can record high quality videos, and there are just a lot of great things about this software. At first, I was having a little bit of troubles with it, but then the developers helped me fixed that and made the program great again for me. Get this software because it is better than any other software out there, and if you need it, the developers are always there to help you.

Hands down the best and easiest recording/streaming software on the market and its all included in the price you buy it at and you dont need to make any new accounts or anything to use. I bought mine on sale so its really worth it for half off, but whatever you find in at for cheaper will be worth it. 10/10

Don't waste your money on this. I have had way more problems with this than I would expect from a program I payed for. At least 5 of 20 the videos I have tried to record with this have ended up being corrupted and unusable. Additionally, if you want to stream from a capture card 3ds it is very problematic to set up to look alright, and if you want to put a border for your stream, it looks bad. At least for streaming Xsplit is free and better

I really like this so much but....

This software runs greatly. but It can't run without internet connection and your friend can't join you some game that you are playing because the Action is running in the same time. If you are not serious this software is great, if you want enjoying games without these problems you should buy this software from other, but not from Steam....

Rarely crashes or freezes. Has every basic screen capture options that you need. If you are exporting your video, you cannot use the program until it is finished. Sometimes this takes a while. However, the quality of the exported video is excellent. Highly reccommend.

There is one major issue i have with Action and that is when i record in a game, it often crashes my computer. The FPS drops down below 10 and then my comp cant handle it. IDK if this is because of my graphics card (NVIDIA GTX 760) or my processor (i7) but I'd like to know what can be done!

Initially I have written a negative review on this software. Then Mirillis support team contacted me so I took that review down wanting to see how things unfold. It is the same in the end so I am reinstating my review with some edits. As you can see, I have spent a lot of time using Action! and all these observations have been there since the beginning. Over time, my hardware has changed (including changing of graphic card), software has changed, but the headache from using Action! remains.

[1] Action! crashes often

I use Action! to record in-game videos and post them in YouTube. I have more than 150 videos recorded and most are beyond 30 minutes long. In short, I am a pretty heavy user when it comes to in-game video recording. Action! crashes almost every day. At times, several times a day. I have experienced this for as long as I have Action! Even changing hardware would not help.

What this means is that you may spend 30 mins recording an in-game scene. Just as you stop the recording, nothing happens. Toggle to desktop you would see it stops working and force closed by Windows. You would lose all 30 mins of footage. That happens to me often. Some footage may need another week's wait to have it recorded (like MMO raiding with weekly lock). So yes, I have put up with this for almost every day.

To get around this, in as much as possible, I try to keep my video short - like 5 to 10 minutes. At least when Action! crashes - which is like very often - I just need to re-record that segment and not the entire video. But I don't always have this luxury.

[2] Action! may not start recording the moment you want it to

This does not happen often. But there are instances whereby I lose a chunk of video footage at the beginning. Or video recording just doesn't start.

[3] Action! may crash even when your CPU etc. load is low

One potential reason of Action! crashing I gather from interacting with the support team is that my CPU etc. load is too high. That interfere with the recording software. Fair enough. But how do you explain Action! crashing even when I am recording a video over Google Slide (just a browser) with very low load to CPU, GPU etc.?

[4] Action! may not work for your recording device

I have a home studio. I have a digital USB mixer Zoom R24. AMD Gaming Evolved Raptr (free) is able to recognize it and record my voice as well as in-game video with no issue. But not with Action! Finally, I spent money to buy a Blue Yeti in order to work with Action!

[5] Action! may not save your setting if you shutdown your machine without exiting the application

For the longest time, I was puzzled why I need to adjust all the settings every time I open up Action! I have to re-adjust mic level, positioning of webcam, size of webcam window as well as key binding. Every single time I start my machine. I wrote into their forum, reported this issue but received no help. I interacted with their support team via email. In the end, no resolution.

Then I accidentally discovered that Action! only save my settings (at least for me) when I properly exit the application and not let Windows shutdown closes it (read: it is not a force shutdown). Also, I have also discovered that Action! crashes less when I exit the application after changing the setting and re-open it again before recording. If I change the setting on the fly, there is a high chance Action! will crash.

[6] Working with their support team doesn't help to resolve my issues

When Mirillis team contacted me via Steam and informed me that the proper support channel is through email. So I complied. Here is the event timeline.

End Jun, 2015 - I wrote to Mirillis team via email officially informed them of my issues.
Jul 4, 2015 - I supplied them with screenshots and all the info they have asked for.
Jul 18, 2015 - I sent them the dxdiag report as per their request.
Jul 25, 2015 - I sent them a 2nd dxdiag report as per their request.
Till Aug 16, 2015 - I receieve no response on how these reports would have help them in diagnosing my issues.

[7] In closing

While I would love Mirillis to continue making money so as to continue supporting this software, I just can't recommend this software based on all the issues I have faced for so long as well as all the time I have wasted just to re-record video.

personally i tried this product... i hate multple things about it... here are my list of things

1.) HIDDEN SUBSCRIPTION FEE, yes i said it, hidden subscription fee.
The subscription is basically something that removes "this was recorded with (inset recording program here)!" then expect you to pay $50 on top of it to expect you to be satisfied to have a recording device... Also, it requires Subscription for other things, like streaming and other small detailed items.
2.) requiring a seperate log in while having to be connected to steam to even use it...
To even has accessible to streaming or any other good features you have to be logged into the account connected to your key and signed into steam...
3.) The login for the 2nd time around is longer then usual...
4.) unusual lagging while non-recording.
It basically uses more resources to NOT record then it is recording... how stupid is that?
5.) I can get a Free recorder to do just as much if no better then the recorder here without a subscription fee and less time consumed on having to relog in on everything everytime...

I got a refund for this product once i found out all this stuff that i believed to be wrong with it, honestly... I would say don't spend $50 to have a video recorder and then have to pay $8 a month to get good features for a video recorder that should already be there or shouldn't be there after paying $50 to get the thing.

I Recommend "OBS" its free. It works flawlessly. and is capable of so much more, to even green screening.
I bought this thinking it would be better quality. for some reason it will not stream on anything from twitch to
youtube or hitbox. I went through everything with "Contact Support" went through evey step possible,
and still not anything to get the streaming working. its pretty buggy too, like it changes its setttings sometimes
without you even knowing. I still use it for recording and uploading, thats the only thing it seems to work for me.
I can't say eveyone will have this problem, But I can't recommend it to anyone either, when OBS is free, they are
always updating it too making it better everytime. with OBS, you can manually set up your recording screen to how
you want it. I think maybe this program is for people who need the setting automated for them, but still I recommend
OBS and taking the patience to learn.

After 900 hours of recording and almost 200 videos uploaded on youtube i can now say that Action is far the best recording software i've ever had to buy. Encoding in MP4 and uses almost nothing of your CPU, you can easily record every game you want. Uploading your videos directly on your Youtube channel thru the software as never been so easy. For a 30 minutes Video at 60 FPS recording i only had a 6GB Video File or less, it all depends of what the game you are recording.
With the New Time Shift system you can record only the last action you made without recording the whole sequence by pressing a simple button that saves the last recorded seconds.

Pros
-------
-User Friendly Interface
-Easy to use
-Doesn't use much memory , so your gameplay isn't lagging
-Cheap
-Easy Upload to your YouTube Channel
-Time Shift System is awesome for recording only your best moments/actions
-Streaming is free since a few patches, no more monthly subscribing
-Recording in MP4 so no more 100GB files any more
-720p or 1080p of 4k support
-30, 60 or even 120 FPS recording available
-Still updated when needed.

Cons
--------
-Not a freeware but ok, it deserves to be a payware.
-Recording HUD doesn't Support some games in Windowed more

I have been using Action! since it's release a while back on its official Web site.
What you get here is the Commercial version of Action! recording software.

I have used Fraps, Playclaw and Litecam and have found that Action! does offer better performance, even with Playclaw running through Fast settings with Uncompressed AVI, Action! still performed better.
Action! includes a lot of features and especially performs really well when recording a custom active desktop region for windowed games and emulators using OpenGL. None of the other recording software could either record those or keep a steady framerate on them.

Action! encodes in both AVI and MP4 but also, if you encode with AVI, after the recording it offers you the ability to convert the AVI file to an MP4 file if you wish.

On top of that it can upload your finished recordings directly to Facebook and YouTube removing the hassle of having to access them through a browser to upload.

Another cool feature is that if you are running an Android device, Action! has an App that you can download to use as a remote control to control your Action! recordings. And I use that feature a lot.

Everything else about Action! you need to know they have already explained in the description.

I have to admit, Action! works really good and it is often updated.

Also, the Live Streaming allows Streaming to Twitch, Ustream, etc. So you are also getting a great deal with Action!

If you want a great performing software recorder with a lot of features, live streaming and remote App control, Action! really gives you the bang for your buck.

Easily the best software I've found for recording

PROs
  • FREE livestreaming. Yup. As of update 1.22.0 you can stream to YouTube, Twitch, HitBox, etc. for free so that's nice
  • Hardly any lag on your system
  • Allows for microphone audio to be recorded louder than the game. Even Fraps doesn't do that.
  • Even gives you a weird way to record those little media players on the internet you see occasionally
  • Almost every popular YouTuber I've seen uses it

CONS
  • Expensive. $50!!!!! Buy it on sale.
  • Kinda confusing to learn. YouTube is your friend...ironically
  • Its's on Steam; forcing you to have the Steam client on all the time
  • Don't try recording Minecraft. Trust me. It freaks out.

    Really handy and a lot of fun. BUY NOW

    *EDIT 6/17/15*
    After fervently trying to record, I have learned that, at least on my machine or for this update,Action does not record Garry's Mod very well at all. Action is still the best recording software out there.

Ofcourse it goes on sale 2 days after I bought it at full retail... that would be my luck. But it is a good program to have. Does not record, at least for me at 1080 on mp4 but does for avi. Avi is definitly a HD space killer. Web cam feature is really easy to use. There is a subsription fee for live stream so keep that in mind. But you can just record it and edit it to upload to your channel.

This is one of the best softwares to record youtube videos... when it works.

I use Action! for more than an year now. Its great for recording, with little to no FPS loss. The quality is not as good as the other recording softwares, but its perfect if you are rendering and uploading it to youtube.

But then, some bugs started happening. 2 in every 5 videos that I record with Action! (I usually record 1 hour+ of gameplay) happen to have some strange problems. Stuff like not recording everything, audio/video sync and some other ocurrencies I cant even describe properly.

For months I have been working on fixing those, but with no success. For that unreliability (think of the anger of losing 1 hour of recording regulary) I am now abandoning Action!. I really hope that the software gets better in the future, because I wish using it again sometime.
