GUYS GRAB THIS BEFORE THE DAY ENDS ! may 10 2011

http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/bandicam/

I talked about this site before .. offering free programs for a 1 day .
today they are offering something i think we can all use ... a program that can record videos of games and others and upload to youtube .. it's a full version so there are no limitations. and users have rated it highly.

here's the description :

Bandicam allows you to record high-quality Game and Desktop videos with less Lag/CPU/HDD usage. You can record WOW, Minecraft, iTunes, YouTube, PowerPoint, Webcam, Skype, Video chatting, Streaming video and desktop screen without lagging.

Bandicam can record video at resolutions up to 2560×1600 in high quality (1080p full HD video can be made) and you can upload the recorded file to YouTube without converting – the recorded file size is extremely smaller than other software (1/20). Due to Bandicam supports AVI 2.0, the maximum file size is unlimited as long as the local Hard Disk has free space available (Over 7days recording).

Re: GUYS GRAB THIS BEFORE THE DAY ENDS ! may 10 2011

tocs to be honest ... u amaze me by how quick judge something before u try it tongue

the reviews ( from users, very picky users i might add, it's also a forum which i'm a member of) say it gives better quality and smaller size than fraps and there are no limitations . in fraps unless u are using the paid version there are limitations to length of the video. also with Bandicam, as i've read video doesn't need to be re-encoded to upload to youtube.

it doesn't hurt to have both or to at least try it before discarding it, we all recommend fraps bec it's free (somewhat) doesn't mean it's the best.

anyway ur loss tongue


EDIT : OK seriously it's really good just tested it out playing hayate in the arena.
a  4 minute video with resolution 1024 x 768 (i also set up the fps to 60 but m not sure if that makes a difference) gave me a 300 Mb video with no lag whatsoever and great quality.

a 1:15 minute video resolution 512 x 384 in fraps gave me a 1.87 Gb file.

ps: both files are avi format.

Fraps utilizes a method that makes raw footage, without any compression. That's what I like about it. I don't really mind huge material files.
I'm sure this Bandicam is fine, but I want 1:1 recording. tongue  The same way goes for my music library. I care about the sound, so everything is in FLAC.

It's just a principle I got. tongue

Hmmm, does that mean that I can make fraps compress footage?

Yes, you can pick between two options: 'Full-size' and 'Half-size'.

Re: GUYS GRAB THIS BEFORE THE DAY ENDS ! may 10 2011

that's not compression, that's changing the resolution which in turn changes quality.

in Bandicam .. u can use full size, full resolution and u'll still get smaller size than when u use fraps with GREAT quality. ( of course u can also use smaller resolution which will also give u smaller file size)

so the answer to ur question delano is no, unless if u convert the fraps video later with some other program which will result in some loss of quality.

so advantages over FRAPS :

-no length limitation
-ready for upload to youtube without the need for further re-encoding and quality loss
-great quality with smaller size than fraps.
high resolution and high quality on bandicam is smaller in size than even the low resolution one on fraps

-it can record sound from the sound card ( not just speakers or line in ) (some games and sites use sound card and not speakers and can't be recorded easily)
- u can add a logo of ur choice on the video while being recorded
- u can bring up the programs gui (interface) during game play without interruption.

Intel retrieved and installed, heck I might actually use this


-I noticed that the hackers of oni community made a lot of modifications before they locked me up, do you have any idea what they want with an old game? -Modifications? What kind of modifications?
-Hard to tell, without getting a look at things but it looks like they're repurposing it. -Why?
-Beats me, all the game has is brutal melee combat and furious gunplay. -I dont like the sound of that.....

I hope this will end the fact that 30 minutes of Fraps footage costed me 18gb.

Technically it's compression. It's just about encoding information using fewer bits; constituting less space. That'd be like saying MP3s isn't compression, due to the huge data and quality decrease. roll
Anyways I'm sure people without my strict habits, will enjoy this program. smile

Re: GUYS GRAB THIS BEFORE THE DAY ENDS ! may 10 2011

changing resolution isn't technically considered compression :\
what i mean is u can have a low resolution (512 x 384) and still be uncompressed.
and u can have a high resolution and compressed.
http://www.wfu.edu/~matthews/misc/graph … sComp.html
just cause u lowered the resolution (image size) doesn't mean it became compressed.

if u have a png picture change it's resolution to smaller resolution : not compression, true it will give a smaller size but technically speaking the word compression means changing algorithms\encoding\codec and not just size.
if u have a png picture transformed to jpg : that's compression

avi change resolution : not compression
change the encoding of it : compression

wav file change its length, crop it change it from stereo to mono: not compression
convert it to mp3 : compression

here's the definition of video compression http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_compression
here's some talk about changing resolution vs changing compression
http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/t … tio-s.html

Compression doesn't change the number of pixels, but it can cause other
image defects.
Resolution changing : This refers to resizing the image - changing the number of pixels in the
width and height.

so just to be accurate that compression and changing resolution or video image size are not the same thing. fraps can decrease resolution \ video image size .. but can't change compression\codec\algorithm of video compression

and of course tobias i respect ur opinion and ur habits tongue to each his own .. but i just wanted to be accurate smile
