New build 3518 with better encoders performance

This is intermediate release and it contains several new features and mostly intended to prepare for future great updates.

  • Changed software-to-encoder programming interface to get better performance and stability (especially from h264 hardware encoders)
  • Added two NVEncoder presets: Lossless & High performance Lossless. Currently encoder doesn't give correct result with these presets.
  • Enhanced audio/video tracks synchronization

When I first got this it was working fine for recording Let's Plays with face cam. However, with each update, it seems to have gotten worse and worse for me & my set up of hard- & software.
It started with audio & video getting out of synch the longer the video recording was, like it started on the same mark and then got progressively more and more askew. So I started to split up my recordings, since I can paste them together in post production anyway.
Then it started to have every first recording of a session with the sound allright, but the frame of the game & cam freezed. So I started to either wait some minutes into the recording before I started actually playing & talking, or to do a "bugged" recording first, and followed up with a proper functional one.
Now it seems to have gone on to have *every single recording* start of with an even longer period of freezed frame, plus the sound gets so badly out of synch it can't be played at all with some players.

It has been some time since I tried out to record cam (new feature to be able to be recorded seperately at the time of writing this), audio & video in diffrent files, but the point is I shouldn't have to!

Also, when trying to record the laptop it hasn't worked as of yet for me. And when setting to record everything, it doesn't record anything & makes the game currently running lag exensively. And it has never been able to get lower res game to be recorded, say "Plants vs Zombies" or original "Doom", when other software has been able to record both low res and high res games.
With some games it clashes, so that the game won't start up if you have PlayClaw running (example "The Wolf Among Us"). A possible solution to that though is to start the game first, alt tab and then start up PlayClaw when the game is allready running. But this of course only works with games that allow alt tabbing.

I was looking forward to the added features, but at this point, I feel it's just getting worse and worse and I may resort back to not having face cam but just game footage but with another more stable software. I deeply wish the updates weren't required but rather released as DLC which you could individually untick in case they didn't work out for you.

For the readers information, I have OS Win 7 (64 bit), NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics card & CreAtive Fatal1ty headset.
Here's a video showcasing the sound synching issue: From 04:37 and onward

We should be able to activate this software how ever many time we wish, nowhere in the details does it say anything about limited to so many computers, we have paid for it, its connected to are steam account, end of, I understand that the software must not be given out to others who have not paid for it, (which i wont do) but limiting the people who have paid for the software is wrong, no activation should be needed, only something that checks that its being used on the same steam account that it was bought on should it need to check anything, sort this out, I will not be limited, if i get any problem, you will be hearing from me, this is my 1st time using your software Edward Kozadaev

So it's with great disappointment that I can't recommend this software till the activate cap thing is removed, it does not even say in the product details anything about activation, my review will change, if PlayClaw does!

This software has some Great innovative things about it, like the OSD, which is the only thing i bought it for..

Very Decent software you get here,was looking for an good game capture/streaming software for an acceptable price
finaly i have found some thing great,which offers you some nice feature.
Its an very resource friendly software,the impact while playing and recording or streaming is so minimalistic just AMAZING !(even with lower hardwer) Like the desktop capture mode very useful if you not only capture gameplay´s.
Playclaws overlay look´s professional and clear to work can blacklist software from windows which don´t will appear wihle capturing or streaming.
Some last word´s about Playclaw 5,regular Updates + some little bonus for every steam nerd it has achievement.
so its definitly worth every penny,i highly can recomend this great software,if you looking or even if you not happy with
the capture software you using at this time.

Greets Yücel

Ps: the only con i have seen so far is that playclaw 5 player status playing playclaw 5 doesn´t works
so that makes the achievement useless,but don´t bothers me much because the core software is importand
and its working very well for me,so just some little note ^^
but im sure it will be fixed in the next updates.

For such a simple program, this thing works GREAT! Every once in a while something updates and breaks compatibility but they seem to be quick about fixing it or it ends up being an issue with the drivers I updated and they get a hotfix due to common issues across several programs.
Ultimately for a cheap recording tool it allows you to use teamspeak voice overs, cam overlays, direct broadcasts....
I use this an windows movie maker to edit the clips and add my intro clip and audio tracks, check out my youtube

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 Fraps as it is much less resources intensive, and produces higher quality ouput than Bandicam in most cases. Using PlayClaw usually results in nothing more than a 1 to 5 frame rate decrease and very few dropped frames during recording. 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 (from 5 to 600seconds). Take screenshots. Configure input from multiple audio sources including mic. You can also stream to Twitch, YouTube and Customer Server (not tested yet)

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 set the resolution (although I would recommend recording native and then scaling during editing).

One thing I really like is the ability have PlayClaw write audio tracks in seperate files. This makes it a lot more convenient if editing audio as each each source (in-game or mic) gets it's own file. So no bother with extracting audio from the video file, or having all audio streams mixed.

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. One of the most useful overlapys shows how large your recording is.

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 and 13). 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. Edit: The developer has kindly clarified the MJPEG issue. But out of all the capture software I have tested over the years, PlayClaw is the only one that caused problems like this. So I am not changing my comment, as many people have found my 'pro tip' useful.

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

Edit: May 2015 - Slight changes to incorporate questions received below
