Recording software that allows you to customize overlays, which audio input(s)/outputs you record, has many encoding options and records HD with no slowdown/FPS drop even on an older dual core processor.

However, to me the best feature is the 10 second recording buffer; you can set it to constantly record and only when you hit the hotkey you setup does it dump the last 10 seconds (edit: this is configurable so it can be up to 5 minutes) of video into a file. So, you don't have to maintain massive files and cut them down to the funny parts, just hit the record key after something neat happens and blam there you go you got the last 10 seconds of video saved.

It is easy to use, intuitive, and once you setup the options how you like them you don't have to fuss with it just load it up before you play a game that you'd want to record and you're all set.

Note: this can work just as well for non-games and recording your desktop/all windows for instructional/tutorial purposes

edit: updated wording about audio inputs and recording them

Legit work in progress! Now that streaming has been implemented and released into the retail PlayClaw there will be much more improvements etc..

This Dev or Dev team is very active in the steam community forums and is really nice person.

Hi5 to the makers and publishers of PlayClaw and Dev team!

What to let folks know that there computer setup may effect PlayClaw Positively or Negitively so keep that in mind. If you having bad frame drops etc.. might be a bottle neck a number of things generally HD can be CPU or GPU or not enough ram etc.. do your research!

Download install and launch PlawClaw and easy to configure, to configure for twitch streaming goto your twitch.tv/dyingjedi account and then on the left when logged in click dashboard, then clisk streaming key then click the link that says reveal streaming key and attach that to the PlayClaw and your all set back out with it enabled and your closes servers and Walla your ready to stream!

Overlays are fun and going to be re-worked and your gonna have cool changes here shortly but as of this release they are useful and fully function without issues so far.

If you need a PC screen recorder, I recommend this one. Much better than FRAPS. (I can't comment on Dxtory, however.)

Used this software a lot to record my gameplay, then upload it to youtube. This is better than Frap because it uses multiple cores on the processor.

It's good software i've used it for quite awhile on several different PC's but sometimes it glitches up like webcam freezes, so record webcam separately in a different program because Playclaw freezes webcam.
but it runs great way better than hypercam, lots of features, t's great.

This is one of the best game capture programs out there, and is definitely worth $40.00. I constantly use it for my YouTube channel, and it hasn't failed me yet. I would purchase it over again.

Ok so this is my first review and off the bat i am going to say that this recording software is by far the easiest and most effective i have ever used.

It allows easy overlaying such as your webcam or teamspeak. You can output in different formats, qualities, and even split the audio and video into two different files.

Also, they just updated it allowing you to stream to Twitch and other websites.

If you are a video maker like me, or just want to show off some cool footage, this program will do so with ease.

Excellent software. Its so simple to use and does a great job of recording very good quality game footage without sacrificing too many FPS, it blows the likes of FRAPS and Bandicam as well as other free alternatives away in that respect.

I liked the software at first but started having issues with audio sync being off, and it would be okay if it was just out of sync but it is sections of audio that are behind; I'd have to cut and sync audio after finding each section (and I have). Choose the Intel driver for recording, choose seperate audio streams. That should help some. If they fix these issues the software will be great again. Until then I've moved on to OBS.

I would avoid this.

I managed to get the software to work for one game.

I recorded the horrible Kingdoms of Amalur and it recorded fine, I was able to import the file into Sony Vegas with zero problems.

I recorded DayZ and it recorded okay to the same format as before. Trying to import it into Sony Vegas worked but the video was warped and broken. Trying to convert the recording to multiple different formats failed meaning the recorded file was corrupt.

I tried to record Just Cause 2 and it crashed the game.
I tried to record Just Cause and it crashed the game.
I tried to record Skyrim and it crashed the game.
I tried to record Fallout 3 and it crashed the game.

I did some research and apparently the developers ♥♥♥♥ed up the update and you have to fix it yourself.

http://playclaw.com/forum/index.php?/topic/3818-all-games-crashing-win-81-steam-and-origin/

I can't recommend this shoddy software.

It's not just me.

Let me start off by saying that Playclaw 5 is a brilliant recording utillity......... When it works... after weeks of researching all of the other options and watching countless YouTube videos I finally made a decision to buy Playclaw. It had everything you could want in a program.

- A variety of compression methods including H.264 hardware compression.
- Cusomisable overlays from FPS to CPU and GPU monitoring
- PiP webcam support
- Ability to record multiple audio streams
- Multiple profiles

and much more.

Where if falls down is its VERY inconsistant. I could record a gameplay with no problems at 60FPS then later the same day I could record another gameplay and Playclaw decides that it's not going to, well, play. Playclaw would then not record, and the game would freeze resulting in me having to force close the software and the game.

I have endlessly trawled the forums for a solution and unfortunately there doesnt seem to be a definative answer for this issue, I have also disabled all other overlays such as 'Steam in game' and Origin in game' just to ensure there are no conflicts

I must say that I really wanted to like this software and I love it when it works but its becoming more and more unreliable especially for a 'full relaease'

I recently upgraded my GPU and decided to try nVidia Shadowplay (which is free) and so far it hasn't skipped a beat. It records full 1080p @60FPS with a manageable file size it also has an in built stream to Twich feature which is sadly lacking in Playclaw. Shadowplay doesnt have the ability to separate audio tracks at the time of writing this and the PiP webcam support is for Twich broadcast only but there are two main differences between Playclaw and Shadowplay.

1)Playclaw is a paid program which still need work with its basic functions, Shadow play is in Beta and is FREE with nVidia GPu's 600 series and above.
2)Playclaw is a 'full release' but has inconsistant performance. Shadowplay works first time EVERY TIME!!!!!!!!!!

Summing up Playclaw should have been the beacon of shining light, the user friendly way of recording gameplay but unfortunately the performance is way too inconsistant for me to recommend it in its current form. which is a shame really. If you can get it to work consistantly well done and please let us all know how you did it.

If you want something that works first time, every time without stressing your system too much and you think that not having PiP webcam in locally recorded video is an okay trade off for something that works all the time, get Shadowplay or MSI Afterburner if you can.

Note: Steam says that I have used this software for 0 hours I can assure you this is NOT the case!!!!

The marketplace for screen capture tools is starting to get quite crowded, but PlayClaw stands out as it strikes a great balance between ease of use and quality. The main competitors are Bandicam, Fraps, and Dxtory. PlayClaw beats Bandicam and Fraps as it is much less resources intensive, and produces higher quality ouput in most cases. Using PlayClaw usually results in nothing more than a 1 to 5 frame rate decrease and very few dropped frames. Dxtory, coupled with the Lagarith codec produces slightly better results, and is even less resource intensive, but takes a bit more effort to set it up; in contrast the PlayClaw UI is very easy to navigate.

The main features are: Record in-game footage. Record the desktop. Buffer a period of footage. Take screenshots. Configure input from multiple audio sources.

Recording desktop / in-game and activating recording to capture the buffered footage never show any interuption or performance hit. I have tried streaming to a 10,000prm HDD, and also 5400. As with all capture tools the faster the hard drive the better, but footage was still OK on the slower drive. Being able to define the number of CPU threads the software utilises really helps performance. Other essential options are the ability to define frame rate for capture and resolution.

Taking screenshots produces a nice overlay effect - it really lets you know a shot has been taken without being intrusive. Other overlays can be configured to show frame rate, recording duration, buffer, a clock and many other features.

The main area where PlayClaw could improve is around the MJPEG codec. It appears they use their own custom codec and many have found it can be a pain finding editing software to support it. (Protip - If you have problems opening the files in your editor, try installing the free version of Bandicam - this will install / update the codecs - it certainly worked for Sony Movie Studio 12). It spoils what is otherwise a very easy to use application. It would be nice if they supported advanced options that allowed the user to install their own codecs.

Overall PlayClaw is a great piece of software. I am using it exclusively to capture footage. it does a great job.

The first few days I used Playclaw everything worked fine, I was able to record for more than an hour in 1080p without much lag or frame drops... Then things started to get messy when I tried it on various games and started playing with the settings. The software gives error messages right from the start and it doesn't work with every game, while Fraps does.

Sure, Fraps has a higher impact on performance but overall you can record anything (including the desktop) without having to worry about the result. Playclaw is far from perfect as of now, so for the price (and the fact that the Steam license will not be updated anymore after X years, as read in the official forums) I don't think this software is worth it. I'd recommend Fraps for now if you have a configuration that can handle the CPU/GPU stress. Playclaw has its pros (webcam display, separating audio files for editing,... and much more!) but it's way too unstable/unpredictable.

I have mixed feelings on this one. tl;dr I ended up buying Fraps to get my game captures.

About me: I make a lot of fragshow/machinima movies and have about 10 years experience. This program didn't work out so well for that purpose. I also did some research on YouTube for reviews prior to my purchase, but unfortunately my mileage varied quite a bit.

I found I had to alt tab a few times to get the overlays to appear - like it wouldn't select the open game for a while. Then, even when turning all overlays off in the settings, they still appeared in my recordings.. and yes, i had turned the overlay off from the active game prior to recording!

Another problem I had was that I had to close and reopen the program a lot, and relaunch my games so PlayClaw would show up, which caused steam to go "hold the phone! we're closing or opening something" all the time [black Steam box in middle of screen.] I'd also get "failed to launch app" as PlayClaw or its "hook" which displays/hooks into games would get frozen in the background. I'd have to restart my games, steam and eventually my PC to try to get things going.

Can't blame the dev for that though, as it appears to be how Steam handles licensing. However, I can blame the dev for this: I emailed explaining my issue, and asked for a license for the non-steam version (which is feature-same, does not have new features) and was refused saying to try the new beta.

I don't want to try new betas. I want to have working software delivered through Steam if thats how I purchase it. But if one of my core issues is that I'm having problems LAUNCHING the app, I should be given a key for the non steam version as I had requested.

I can see this argument.. if you buy a game on steam, and it has issues, would you get given a normal CD key for the game AS WELL? well, no. But this is a piece of software designed to run alongside games, and maybe Steam isn't built for that.

The program also always prompts for admin rights (Win 8.1 x64) which, if you're reopening it multiple times, becomes quite the annoyance. Also each time I quit the program it would display a variable error.

Then comes the quality. I found recording the same footage in Fraps vs in PlayClaw resulted in about a 60% smaller file in PlayClaw. Maybe this is good for some people, but it wasn't good for me as I wanted to retain as much quality as possible using this type of recording method.. meaning the reds got junked up a bit due to compression.

I guess I'll close in saying that PlayClaw seems to have some cool features which I'll try to use eventually since I paid for it but it has some problems - which all software does. What wasn't cool for me was the developer refusing to let me use a non-steam version of the program I had bought a license for.

If we buy on Steam, we shouldn't have to manually install things. In my opinion If we opt to do that, we should be granted the privilege.

Sir Faulty's Scorecard

Personal Rating: "Worth purchasing"
Traditional Rating: 8.5 out of 10
Genre: Recording Software

A good robust piece of recording software well worth investing in

I purchased this on a whim during the autumn sale but was heading out that evening so I didn't bother installing it thinking I would get to that when I got home or possibly do it over the weekend. What I did was promptly forget about it (I had a lot of work pressures on the mind not being helped by the fact I was also prepping and studying for exams). I also have a bad habit of never remembering what I purchase during Steam sales because I seem to go into a frenzied, rabid mode where all logic and reason get left behind at the start of the sale only to be picked up again as the sale door slams shut and boots me back to reality. To be honest, I have lost count the amount of times I have gotten as giddy as a schoolboy for a game I already own of which I had no idea I already owned.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=349050351
I am not what you would call an expert at this sort of stuff and quite frankly I don't aim to be so FRAPS, when introduced to me, did everything and more I could expect from software of this nature. PlayClaw 5 has made me aware that I could have been expecting a bit more - but just a bit since we are not talking Great Expectations here.

I initially had teething problems with FRAPS playing and recording on the same drive. There where some significant hits to game performance even on beefy i7 systems but that all changed when I purchased my latest gaming laptop (MSI GT70 i7-3630 with 16 RAM, 256GB SSD and 750Gb internal drive). Having FRAPS installed on the SSD and writing to the internal drive solved all my issues. I decided to install PlayClaw 5 in exactly the same manner as I did want these insanely large video files clogging up my SDD which would have had a hard time anyway of keeping more than two videos of 30 mins of gameplay before running out of space.

So for the relative newcomer to game recording how does PlayClaw 5 stack up against FRAPS, its similarly priced cousin? I have yet to try out Dxtory - which is significantly cheaper than both - but PlayClaw 5 comes with a host of options not available to FRAPS users. You can select a codec (granted you can only choose between fast, MJEPG, H.264 Intel Quicksync and the Nvidia codec if you have an Nvidia card like I do) but as mentioned above to a novice user of software of this nature I am really fine with this. Where FRAPS can be quite resource intensive, PlayClaw 5 is very much lighter on the system. FRAPS also has an annoying habit of loosing frames even though you are recording at 30fps but your systems experiences a drop in fps that is still well above the threshold limit. An example would be recording a game video at 30fps with the game running at 60fps occasionally dropping to 50/55 or lower which in turn would still show up in your recordings. Not so with PlayClaw 5 as long as your game doesn't drop below the threshold set in the options menu as this will immediately drop the recording to 15fps but anything higher will not appear which I really like. PlayClaw 5 also outputs smaller video files depending on what codec you use and I found that using the Nvidia Codec (with a few tweaks here and there in the Playclaw options menu) resulted in the qualty recordings at decent sizes for posting. I also found it useful that you can specify in the options how much of the CPU you want to use for recording.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=349050884
PlayClaw 5 also has an overlay that can show a host of options to you (set in the overlay tab of the software). I found displaying the GPU temperature and usage as well as the systems CPU core temperature and usage to the screen in a non-intrusive way to be very useful. You can also display information such as write speed to drive and file size of recording (if you want to keep track of the video sizes you are recording). It will also record your webcam (displayed in the corner) should you set this in the overlay as well as Teamspeak, if so required. PlayClaw 5 can apparently record up to 16 different audio devices but I could not really test this one out. It seemed to record the game sounds and my microphone perfectly so I was a happy camper. You are also even given the option to record audio in a separate audio file. PlayClaw 5 also comes with a screenshot capturing tool which you can set to take snapshots at intervals you set or when you press the desired key pressing. Nothing new here and what I would have expected. A recent update to PlayClaw5 also added streaming games to twitch in the options menu if you prefer to stream your games (which seems to be all the rage at the moment).

The only downside I can see if you do this professionally is that the software does not allow you to select your own codec for recording that isn't already listed but neither did FRAPS (well not to my knowledge but maybe I missed something). Comparing recording quality I would have to say that PlayClaw 5 seems to have the edge but only slightly but It's not massively noticeable anyway.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=349051309
Conclusion

If you are looking for game recording software and don't already own FRAPS (or even if you do and still want to see what PlayClaw 5 has to offer) I can highly recommend you pick up this software. Try and catch it when it goes on a sale (I got it for $12 dollars during the Spring/Autumn sale) or better yet if you can't really wait - head on over to the developers website http://www.playclaw.com/ and purchase your Steam key there for $34 instead of the $49 its going for on the Steam Storefront.

as a noob youtube playthrough person i enjoy using this software. Its so CPU and RAM light even though its packed with so much.
10/10 I dare anyone not to like this. Files are saved as AVI but compressed in MJPEG (Moving Jpeg) so for my Half-Life 2 sries. 30 mins at 1080p is 10-15gb. Compress it to 720p in Sony Vegas and bang >1gb
For Assassins Creed 4 its more like 20GB but its Jpeg formatted so obviously the mpre colours used the bigger the file. Still... Its an EPIC peice of software. GET IT IF YOU PLAN ON RECORDING YOUTUBE VIDS!
