What is the best windows program to screen record?

OBS is the defacto standard for recording.

If your computer is really laggy, there is a built in screen recorder for windows 10 at least, maybe other windows. This can't capture more than one program, but is good if you want non-laggy runs

I use windows 10, did you say this program is built in or do I have to install, it?

Also, do you know if I have to stream on twitch to submit minecraft speedruns?

Windows has it's own built in recorder, but I would avoid using it unless absolutely necessary as it has some limitations.

All questions regarding a specific need to be directed to the mods and community of the game; every game has it's own requirements for acceptable proof of a run (although I've never heard of a game requiring a live-stream).

@SpeedSonicSpeedSonic if you don't have the built in recorder I would suggest downloading OBS. Its free and the best screen recorder for speedrunning. If you can't get OBS, then bandicam or screencast are also good.

you can also do the good ol trick of "point the camera at the pc screen" if your pc is astronomically bad

If you have Windows 10, there is the Xbox Game Bar, which has a Recoding Feature. If you don't, maybe look up some lists to guide your choice.

I am very active, just that I haven't done a single run in 7 months.
I hope this information will greatly improve the activity of this thread.
