ChrisPC Screen Recorder - Recording Tips

Postby Chris » 10 Apr 2018, 12:15

In this topic you will find tips and tricks on how to improve the recording settings, depending on what you want to record a online video or just a simple desktop tutorial.

1. RECORD DESKTOP TUTORIAL - record a simple tutorial of your desktop which doesn't include any fast moving parts (such as videos, movies).

To improve performance, quality and have low CPU usage, try these changes in Settings->Advanced Settings:
- click on "Reset to default settings" button.
- set the FPS (frames per second) to a low value, for example 10 or 15 FPS
- video encoding speed to Fast or Medium.
- set recording quality to Optimum or Higher.

2. RECORD ONLINE VIDEO - record a video, that you can't download using Link Finder engine from ChrisPC VideoTube Downloader Pro.

To find the equilibrium between real-time live encoding and quality, depending on your CPU power, try this changes in Settings->Advanced Settings:
- click on "Reset to default settings" button.
- set the FPS (frames per second) to a value 25, 30 or 60 FPS (depends on your online video quality, but 25 FPS should be OK most of the time)
- video encoding speed to Super Fast or Ultra Fast.
- set recording quality to Optimum or Good.

3. DROPPED FRAMES - your CPU is not powerful enough to make encoding in real-time with your current recording settings
If you get a message similar to this one:
chrispc screen recorder - cpu slow.PNG

It means that your CPU is not powerful enough to make real-time encoding at the frames per second value you've set (in this example 60 FPS).

Try to make these changes in Settings->Advanced Settings:
- click on "Reset to default settings" button.
- set FPS to a lower value 30, 25 or 15 (frames per second)
- video encoding speed to Ultra Fast.
- lower the recording quality if you still have dropped frames.

4. BLACK IMAGE WHILE RECORDING ONLINE VIDEOS FROM A WEBSITE - while recording video from a website the recording has good sound but black image

This is related to the browser you are using.
Just load the page you want to record in another browser like Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Safari or Edge.
