Youtube is becoming more and more popular every day. It’s far from what we imagine in the past. We think it would be popular, but not as popular right now. It gets millions viewers and Youtubers every day that watch and share their videos. It leads people to become of one of them by making their own channel. Many kinds of channels are coming with their own uniqueness and great content. One of the most popular content right now is probably gaming channel. Everyone loves gaming and that is the main reason why it’s so popular.
If you need to be a gaming Youtuber, then you should have a video to share. There are two options here, first you capture it through your PC and the second one is using of console. Now here we are going to talk about console since capturing video on PC is far easier and do not need some kind of devices. On PC we basically only needed software that will help you capture it. The app itself is also free to download and install. To make you easier to understand, let’s we jump into the article.
Any modern console is supported by feature that let us capturing our video easily with single tap. On the PS4, pressing the Share button on the controller is the easiest way to do it. On the menu screen, you get the option to copy it through your drive or uploading it to the social media and other sites. Just connect of your flash drive on its port when you want to transfer it.
For videos itself, do the same thing by pressing Share button. The system records of the game footage while you are playing it. The only limitation here is the time limit. For normal Playstation, 15 minutes is the maximum time and you get more with Playstation Pro. Just press the Share button again to end it or to record any video. There is an option to broadcast it through Twitch service if you think that you are ready enough to do it.
Xbox One is also getting the similar feature on Playstation 4. The feature constantly records any video that you want. Double tabs on the Xbox button and then press X button to launch it. Press Y button for taking screenshot and getting the best picture for your wallpaper or thumbnail video.
I have to say that Xbox is better than Playstation in term of feature on this case. The company includes of an option that called as “Snap an App” that giving us more advance way for editing and upload video. Edit your video easily here and means we do not need to transfer it through computer for just editing it. You should try it and capture some of videos there.
Wii U and Switch
Until now, Nintendo has not talked about recording feature on their console. I do not really know what they are thinking. But, you probably know that they are so careful on letting people capturing their gameplay video. The only option here is taking the screenshot and then re-shares it through the social media.
On the WII U just press of the Home button to process it and press the capture button near the d-pad if you have a Nintendo Switch. There is also another possibility by using some kind of hardware that let us getting longer and better videos for any console including the one from Nintendo.
Our good last option would be a capture device. You are not getting any limitation of time or anything here. Just make sure to turn on copyright protection and provide good space for storing it. On this case, I will recommend you kind of devices. The first one is Avermedia Live Gamer Portable 2 and the second one is Elgato Game Capture.
Avermedia Live Gamer Portable is great device that full with features. The resolution is great with 1080p option and it also supports of 60 FPS gameplay. One thing that I love from the device is the ability on capturing screen without needed of PC to connect it. It is nice investment for people who not wanting new PC.
Elgato Game Capture is a great device even though having Windows and Mac OS are still needed. The feature is similar with Avermedia, but with small package and high quality capture. It will be a nice option if you are not in mood to have the previous one. Quick note here, the editing software is not perfect and its better to use other one such as OBS.
