Forums  /  Speedrunning  /  What's the lightest recording software?

My PC is quite bad, so I'd like to know which is the least resource-heavy recording software to use.

Thanks for your answers in advance.


Shadowplay shall be good if you have installed Nvida card. OBS is what I think can also be your choice.


MSi Afterburner. Camtasia sucks quality wise (MainConcept ...). I'd strongly recommend MSi Afterburner since you can choose your codec and so on. Bandicam shouldn't be that bad anymore but it's resource-wise not the best afaik.

DxTory if you want to spend some money, this program is nice aswell ^^.

No they don't, they wouldn't take down the videos otherwise, duh.

Either way it's not smart to encourage it on a site, bad things could happen, worst case scenario, the site could be taken down because of some idiot encouraging piracy.


Racingmonster: Please listen to xDrHellx, he's correct.

MSI AfterBurner, no question about it
