      "So many moments when I'm playing games end up with "Dang! I wish I could have shared that!" Or "you have to see this!" but it's not always easy to share it without understanding complex software. This software looks easy that anybody can use it without too much tech knowledge. "

      "A simple to record your screen. The finished footage looks just like the original to me although I don't know the exact specs or anything. I suggest you give this a go because it worked pretty good for me."

    • Stephen Nichols - February 21, 2017

      "Lately I've been recording my game play and twitch sections to upload to youtube, so that my fans can watch some of my videos later. For some reason all my videos were coming out glitchy and the frames per second were terrible. I decided I would try to overclock my graphics card and it has alleviated the problem. I'm able to record everything at a pretty high FPS and at a high resolution. My youtube videos have been looking great."

      "Dudes, Fraps is the best. Fraps is super customizable and really easy to use. I've been using it to record my WoW sessions for months. I've been recording raids for my guildmates and getting them better at fighting bosses. I've also been using Fraps to record some shorter videos of myself playing and uploading them to YouTube. I've been getting some hits, too! You'll love it if you try it. "
