Post Tutorial: Recording Screen Cap with Camstudio
We recommend recording using the open source screen-capture program CamStudio.

Step 1)
Download and Install CamStudio

Step 2)

Open "CamStudio," then go to Options-->Video Options:

Change your settings to match these. Since videos displayed on the site only have 15 frames/second, you will save uploading time by using these settings.

Step 3)

If you plan to record audio (recommended), then go to Options-->Record Audio From Microphone

Then go to Options-->Audio Options-->Audio Options for Microphone, and click the volume button at the top. Ensure the microphone volume is loud enough to record properly. You do not need to mess with any of the other audio settings.

If you are not recording audio, make sure to check Options-->Do Not Record Audio, as it will make the file size much smaller.

Step 4)

You are now ready to record!
Go to the Region menu and select Region, which indicates you will set the recording size when you start recording.

When your match is about to start, go to File-->Record and then using the mouse icon, draw a box around the region you want to record:

Helpful Hint: All videos posted on the site are shown at 640 x 480 pixels, so try to make your region around that size or slightly larger to ensure best video quality.

Step 5)

Go to File-->Stop when you are doing recording and save the file to whatever directory you would like.

Step 6)

Upload your video!
