I got this for use by myself and my son. We're both keen gamers and I also do some video game reviews for a website, so I thought this would be ideal for capturing video to use in reviews and my son was keen to get into the current Youtube craze for Minecraft-related videos. He also programs his own computer games and wanted to capture some videos of those for his website.

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.

The box says installation requires 2GB. If you have Directx and Dot Net installed (almost certainly you have) then the total comes down to just over 1.12GB. Yes, that's right - 1.12GB for a screen capture package! Most of that is for the video editor, Roxio Videowave, and even that is absurd. Magix Movie Edit Pro MX, which is a new and vastly more powerful video editor (see my review of it here on Amazon), steams in at just 781MB.

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.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When you run Roxio PC Game Capture a window appears with two oversized buttons on it - one starts the game capture app and one runs the video editing app. The game capture app is a slightly re-branded copy of the WeGame client, which you can download for free from the WeGame website. The video edit app is Roxio's own VideoWave, which is no longer available and is presumably defunct? So, when buying this pack, you're basically paying for two big buttons, a free download and an out-of-date video editing app? At this point you're probably wondering if you'd be better off using that video editing app you probably already have and just downloading the free WeGame client yourself - the answer's almost certainly 'Yes'.

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.

This is a revolutionary product offering the impossible, capture and editing of existing computer games. Screens, video footage and audio all can be captured and edited. For those favourite games there is now a new dimension, a new level so to speak, and a very personal one. A unique way to personalise a game and make it different.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Both myself and my son are keen gamers but neither of us have much knowledge of the technology out there for capturing gameplay footage and were interested in getting something simple and straight forward to get us started.

This does exactly that and seems to do the job well. We have fairly beefy PC's so I can't be sure how well it works on slightly older kit but we found that it ran without impacting game performance.

We found it ran OK on the Steam games we tested it on (Dead Island, Dawn of War 2 and Team Fortress 2 thus far) but understand it doesn't work with everything.

The maximum capture on this is up to 30 frames per second and we didn't find any impact on system performance when doing that. There aren't a lot of options available for capture. It captures to AVI at either half or full screen size.

Uploading to the [...] service is very easy indeed and built into the basic software.

However if you wish to edit the video, add effects, change the timeline, build different snippets into a different format and save to different formats then this is possible using the included Roxio Video Wave sofwware. This adds a fair bit of functionality to the base capture and will be useful for building captures into a full movie.

Video Wave also makes it very easy to share your vids to Youtube and Facebook from within the software.

My son is quite happy with it. He's been getting into a gaming community who share and discuss videos and is pleased to have a tool that gets him started in making his own.

Overall I think this provides a fair bit of functionality at a reasonable price and is well worth considering. For novices like us it certainly does the trick.
