I have used quite a few screen recorders and tend to prefer "Wink":

http://www.debugmode.com/wink/

It is very good with recordings that have mostly static images like when you are demonstrating how to use software. I usually preferred to use Macromedia Flash as the output format because it usually produced the smallest file size and is easily added to web pages. "Wink" saves a screen shot only when the screen changes and animates the movement of your cursor on top of the screen shot. That is why it is good for demonstrating software.

I'm not sure how well "Wink" will work with recording video games that doesn't have a lot of still images. If that is the case, you might look through this list and the comments below the recommendations. One of the comments on "Loilo Game Recorder" was interesting to me.

Gimli has recorded several pinball games. He would probably have some recommendations also.

Hi Til,

I use "Open Broadcaster Software" (OBS) - definitely worth a look in my opinion, and should do all that you need it to do.

If you have an nvidia videocard, nvidia provides a free tool called ShadowPlay (more info here: https://www.nvidia.fr/geforce/geforce-e ... hadowplay/). Nothing to install, you just have to have your drivers up to date. It's very powerful as it uses the videocard itself to encode the stream.

In FP, just hit "alt+z" to open the nvidia overlay menu.
I don't know which videocard are supported though.

My vote goes to OBS too. It's awesome and it's free. I don't know how you can beat that. Also, I think Nvidia Shadowplay does the trick as well.

I tried "Open Broadcaster Software" (OBS) or what they call "OBS studio" now. I struggled with it. I tried the "Game Capture" option under "Sources" and got audio from a table I was recording but the video of the table was completely black. I performed some searches on the internet and found that this is a common problem. None of the solutions I found worked for me.

The only way I could get it to record was to use the "Display Capture" option under "Sources". Even then, it only recorded the left side of the screen. So I changed the resolution in the FP editor from the setting I always use (which is 2560x1440) to 1920x1080. Then it recorded correctly although the video was a bit grainy. I think "Game Capture" might produce a better quality video if I could get it tot work.
