PCSX2 0.9.7 + Gameplay Recording
#1
I've got some problems with the inbuild recording in the latest beta. I've tried all the options that it offers me for encoding but the recorded video has only a big black view.

PCSX2 0.9.7 r3113
GSDX 3038 (MSC 15.00, SSE41) 0.1.16
1920*1080 Internal Resultion
8x HW AA
Texture Filtering
Allow 8-bit textures
SPU2-X r3117 1.4.0
EE/IOP - Recompiler
Round mode: Positive
Claming mode: Full
VUs - microVU Recompiler
Round mode: Positive
Claming mode: Extra + Preserve Sign
Speedhacks are OFF
GameFixes - FFX Video Fix

I'm trying to record from Final Fantasy XII NTSC Version. The recorded video has a non-zero size, but it's all black without sound. The length matches at least Tongue.

try getting different codecs: http://www.codecs.com


and if that doesn't work be sure you're using F12 (I think) with GSDX

I have K-Lite codec pack installed. Well the main idea was to record a gameplay and then upload it to youtube in HQ but I'll have to mess around with it as I see. On the other hand, of course I'm pressing F12!! I even told the emu where to save the files, but there are 2 scenarios up until now:
- DS (DV Video Encoder) : The output stream is created with the length I've recorded with awesome size but it's all just a black scene. (The game runs perfectly 100% speed all time)
- DMO WMVideo 9 Encoder DMO : The output stream is NOT created at all (The game runs fine)
...
- VfW Microsoft Video 1 : The output created, without extension with 0bytes size, the game runs at 20FPS.
I'll try to install different codec and see if that helps though.

Yes, with uncompressed enconding, it works. Well, while recording the game runs at 12.5FPS but the video shows the correct rate. However, I don't have the capacity to store this huge video files. I want to record 1080p video but I don't want it to be 2.23GB with 57sec length.

I've finished to test every encoding option excluding uncompressed butnone of them records anything hat would be similar to the game. For last try I've installed the new Fraps and tried with that. In the moment I start the recording with it, the FPS drops from 60 to 40 (first problem) and after 1sec the emulator crashes (second problem). Fraps was my last idea to record gameplay but it was unsuccesfull. Is there anything else I could try?

You can always record it with your cell phone! I guarantee you will see no impact on performance and the if the emulator crashes it's pure coincidence! Biggrin

if you compress that 2.2gb in mp4 or something else the final file will be 120mb maybe Tongue

Recording at 1080p while uncompressed, and for 57 seconds...having a large file will almost always be unavoidable, and will have a huge impact on speed. I typically use the xvid codec and I usually get 35-40 fps while recording, but the file plays back at 60 fps. After that I use Virtual Dub to combine the audio and video files and for a five minute video, it can be around 195MB and still looks pretty darn good.
