The WeGame client is actually quite good within some limitations. It runs a scan of your drive to compile a list of games you own (that it recognises) but you're not limited to only those games - just launch the WeGame client before starting any game and you should see a green square at the top-left corner of the game indicating WeGame can (try to) record its output. It can capture in three video framrates - NTSC, PAL or computer framerates (that's 29.97fps, 25fps or 30fps) and in three resolutions - web, half-screen or fullscreen. Note that the framerates gamers often quote as a measure of computer capability are irrelevant here, video captures and plays at fixed framerates regardless. I was able to get 720p resolution captures at 30fps which, on a 2-year-old non-gaming laptop, is quite impressive.
The VideoWave app was less impressive.Read more ›

The installation for this software was actually one of the best I've had so far compared with any other software, normally after you've installed the program and are ready to get started you are encountered with an update status, this software however gets that sorted out before you even install, this combined with the smooth installation process left a good first impression on me.
Once installed, it's pretty much straight forward, you load up the software, click on the "Capture" tab, load up your game, then press 'F6'(Can be changed) when you want to start recording.
You will be able to tell if the screen capture program is running by looking at the top left corner, there should be a green square which indicates that the software is running and is ready to capture at your will by pressing the 'F6' button, the green square will disappear when recording, press 'F6' again to stop.
On the first few screen captures I had done, I received a mixed experience, at times everything would go smoothly and got fantastic results, on other times the screen recorder would totally freeze my computer, making me "Ctrl, Alt & Delete", this was very frustrating as it took time as well as corrupting the file it should of recorded.Read more ›
Unfortunately we soon found that this caused Minecraft to slow to a crawl and there was no way to record any kind of commentary/narration at the same time. So his plans for Minecraft videos went out of the window, sadly. It also flatly refused to record any footage of the video games he had programmed himself. No idea why?
Eventually we went looking for an alternative and found FRAPS which we found to be far superior. I would save yourself the hassle and google for that instead of buying this.
Installation is easy enough. It claimed it was installing DirectX 9, which alarmed me as I already had Directx 11 installed. All was okay though, as by the end I still had Directx 11. I spent 20 minutes trawling Roxio Videowave, the Roxio website, and the installed files and folders for details, but failed to discover which version it was. Whatever it is, Roxio appears to have stopped using the product name some time ago. I assume it's an old version of their video editing software. It took 10 minutes to install on my quad-core Toshiba laptop running Windows 7 Professional.
Half of what you get is software that you can download for free. You can find it by Googling "wegame client". This also explains why, when you are using the software, you have to sign-up with the WeGame website and visit their online shop. That's also why, when you make a screenshot or video, you are offered the chance to upload it to WeGame. I have nothing against WeGame; they made the capture tool after all. It's just annoying to discover I could have got it for free.
It's not all free though; you also get Roxio VideoWave, which is a video editor. It isn't great, but is certainly adequate for cutting together simple videos, sounds, pictures and titles to make a finished video. It can output videos as DV, AVC (H.Read more ›
