It’s here: Game Video Recorder (GVR)


Pics or it didn’t happen? How about a video? We’ve leveled up our Raptr client to include GVR, which lets you continuously record your gameplay, save clips of your highlights, and supports stop/start recording as well. GVR uses hardware encoding on modern GPUs (AMD + nVidia) so that you’ll have nearly no performance impact while recording. Read more about how GVR works here.

But wait, there’s more. Since you can continuously record your gameplay with GVR, we’ve added Instant Replays, which allow you to quickly save the last 15 seconds of your gameplay and easily share your awesome gaming moments with the community. For a quick how-to on Instant Replays, check this post here.

To help people quickly find video clips of the games they’re interested in, we’ve also added hashtags to Raptr. Read more about hashtags here.
