Well according to Ghooble's logic - the almighty perfect being that he is - that MJPG issue is entirely your fault, you bad, bad person. biggrin.gif
The Fraps/Vegas issue may be codec related, but even with a codec pack like K-Lite doesn't solve it. Maybe Vegas is the real issue here - but all i know is, using an alternative program like Dxtory works fine.
I shall take that as a compliment.

I'm gonna try this out. My monitor isn't even 1080p, it's 900p. Will this still work? I feel like FRAPS drops my frames down to an unacceptable amount.

Too bad I don't have a 1440p monitor.

I selected "a waste of bandwidth", I realize it was aimed at the people who got a catleap IPS panel, it's just that the general public and I really mean like 99.999% of all people, won't be able to watch it at its full potential.

. I'd never understand why anyone would use that though given the performance loss, plus the footage is likely going to be compressed in some way later on.

There's plenty of reasons. The main one being quality examples such as stuff like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0m1XmvBey8
Or side by side comparisons when showing different graphics settings.
Or it's for those people who can't deal with something that's not the absolute highest quality/resolution(half the people on OCN lol)

For me, Dxtory runs much better, and with the additional options i have more choice in how it runs that i just didn't get in Fraps. I'd also get noticeable framerate drops whenever i'd start recording with fraps, which when you're already running low on frames, is a big deal.

The perceived fps drop is Fraps locking to your recording FPS and DXtory doesn't do this which is why DXtory is perceived as less taxing in most cases. For example DXtory can record at 30 and run at 80 (or whatever) and Fraps would record at 30 and play at 30. The performance hit is actually probably the same but can't be quantified as you can't see how much FPS you COULD get while recording with Fraps. Personally when I'm recording FPS I will record at 60 and given that my refresh rate is 60hz it doesn't matter to me if my FPS doesn't go above that.

Alright so I tested this and it works, but Windows Media Player, Windows Media Player Classic and DivX all fail to play the file.

You do realize that Youtube drastically reduces the quality of 1080p videos? Youtube also caps the framerate at 30.

It's all about internet bandwidth. Even most 1080p game videos converted to a bitrate of 30,000 kbps don't look perfect and Youtube doesn't put out anywhere near that bitrate after their conversion. They may look good small (all of mine do), but when run at 1080p they don't look nearly as good as they do before uploading them. Youtube reduces the bitrate to around 12,000 kbps iirc.

So unless you are letting people directly download your videos or showing them from your own copies directly to people, there's no reason to need perfect quality and high resolution. Besides, I can't see any different in quality between MSI AB and Fraps (never tried dxtory). But I can see the performance difference.



My results on this game benchmark using each (this is at the end of the video).
Fraps
Area 1: 85.3 fps
Area 2: 98.7 fps
Area 3: 82.9 fps
Area 4: 94.5 fps
Average: 90.8 fps

MSI Afterburner
Area 1: 113.1 fps
Area 2: 111.5 fps
Area 3: 100.6 fps
Area 4: 112.8 fps
Average: 109.2 fps

Normal
Area 1: 140.9 fps
Area 2: 145.7 fps
Area 3: 123.0 fps
Area 4: 141.5 fps
Average: 137.5 fps


If you look at the graphs at the end, you can see that Fraps causes huge dips for some reason. It's not because of recording bandwidth either. I run games off of my SSD and record to my HDD raid0 (which can write at over 400MB/s).

The quality is also nothing like it was before uploading. You can even see the blurred MSI overlay. Normally it's crisp.

I do know that Youtube does that but have you seen the "Original" setting? For when you are going to the absolute extreme, it *appears* to be uncompressed on Youtube's end. Though I can't guarantee this

I haven't seen any original setting. Not when uploading nor when watching. Just 360p, 480p, 720p, 1080p settings on the player. Where is this setting?

Right above 1080p. It says "Original".

Is there a possibility of using this to do streaming without taking such a performance hit?
