Making Quality Videos Guide

Leaver your comments about this guide here.

Alternatively, I suggest this guide for Heroes of Newerth. Seriously, it's epic.

I'll look into it, but I think the reason is the music some casters use in their VODs, because of copyright.

Did they contact you why they removed it, or did you contact them?

Btw this guide is very useful because it shows you how to record and compress the video, too biggrin.gif

I agree, this is a good guide. I just wondered why blip.tv was encouraged when people have had videos removed from it.

Because of the superior upload mechanics. If I find out that the reason for deleting our VODs is bogus, I will change that part of the guide biggrin.gif

Hi do you have to use fraps or can you use something else? I have fraps but its the free copy and I don't really want to spend money on something I might not use again. Also, it will be an annoyence to have that 30 second thing all of the time.

Thanks
ZupaTr00pa

EDIT: I have got full FRAPS now so nvm about my post, it sucked anyway.

Updated this guide. Removed blip.tv, because they don't support gaming videos and added explanation how to embed WeGame and GamersTube videos.

Since you only need to setup the aspect ratio, just open the View tab and you should have a Aspect Ratio button in there smile.gif

Wow great video quality biggrin.gif. Excelent guide.

Is it plausible that fraps will somehow corrupt video files and make them implausible to edit?
I'm having this problem in HoN. After making a shortcut in the new resolution and filming it all with fraps some files came out currupted and could be read with WMM or any other programm.

But, I was suprised how good the quality of the videos was, if they only wanted to be friends with movie maker sad.gif

Get the latest version of Fraps, older version had some problems with video viewing.
