How do I made Let's Play
« on: July 20, 2009, 03:36:41 PM »

I want to try my hand at this, but I have no idea how to record voice and stuff going on in a window. What are some programs to use in conjunction with Dosbox and/or other windows?

I (and Frocto, and more) use Camtasia.  It's got a month trial and can record whatever area of the screen you set aside.  Record in stereo mix, unmute your mic playback in your sound settings, you're good to go.

How is that different from Buge's usual attire?

FRAPS works with DOSBox.

I, uh, might be posting some LPs of old Apogee games, if I decide it is worth it.

PROTIP: Practice a couple times before you try an LP that hinges on your unfamiliarity with the game.

The main contenders are Camtasia (30-day trial, $300 to buy, records any area of the screen, encodes on the fly) and FRAPS ($37 to buy, demo limited to 30 second recordings and applies a watermark, records any DirectX fullscreen or window). There's a free app called CamStudio which I haven't tried.

Youtube won't take FRAPS files directly. Encode them first with VirtualDub. Open the AVI in VirtualDub, go to Video->Compression and select a codec, and then Save as AVI. Use Camtasia's codec if possible to create small files quickly without losing too much video quality.

If you can't get your setup to record from both sound and microphone at the same time, there's a workaround. Have FRAPS record game audio as normal, while recording from the microphone using Audacity. (You can even use two separate computers if necessary.) Combine the two later with Avisynth. Create a script like the one below, load it in VirtualDub, and save it as AVI:

Code: [Select]
# save this file as "merge.avs"
video = AviSource("game.avi").ResampleAudio(44100)
commentary = WavSource("audio.wav").ResampleAudio(44100)
commentary = MergeChannels(commentary.GetChannel(1), commentary.GetChannel(1))
audio = MixAudio(commentary, video, 0.75, 0.25)
return AudioDub(video, audio)

Assuming you start the audio recording first, you'll have to cut the start of the audio in Audacity to make it sync. It may help to give a countdown or make a beep, something you can sync up with starting the screen recorder (remember that you can edit the beep out itself once you have the sync correct).

CamStudio likes to crash and generate multiple-GB files so you're probably better off :yarr:

Wow

Thanks, Frocto! You are every bit the Foul-Mouthed Warrior Prince I envisioned.

Oh and :hi5: on the rapidshare.

Son of Blagger (Jonas Fulstrand)

I challenge someone to attempt a Lets Play of this terrible Amiga platform game. I wanted to do it myself but it'll be much funnier if you haven't played before and get killed by stuff and swear a lot.

McDohl and Brentai, can you guys please tell me what software you use in conjunction with your capture cards? I am trying to use this Showbiz 2 thing and it blows hard and leaves watermarks on the video.

VirtualDub.

If you've got your drivers installed then it should show up as a device in Video Capture mode (I honestly don't even know what the rest of VirtualDub even does) and then you can basically fuck around with your Video/Audio settings to taste (most device-specific ones will be under Video->Capture Filter).  Currently I'm using it for TV capture and screen capture with Vladimir Hmelyoff's Screen Capture Driver, in case you ever get tired of Camtasia's shit.

I owe 99% of this success to Brentai. Thanks, Brentai!
