Screen recording or capture with Evatech PCs

Published 30th Apr 2024 - 3 minute read

Become a Twitch or YouTube game streaming sensation with every Evatech Gaming PC, or simply record your desktop to share with others.

Fancy yourself as a professional in your favourite games? Or maybe you're the entertainer; quick with jokes and can find humour in any game. If you've ever thought you might have what it takes to become a success from streaming or YouTube videos of your gaming feats; we've got great news for you.

Xbox Game Bar

The Microsoft Windows Xbox Game Bar is likely already installed and quietly running in the background of your Windows PC if you haven't manually disabled it (Win + G to trigger). This should be able to be utilised by even those without a dedicated graphics card for those who may be on integrated Intel or AMD CPU graphics.

Nvidia GeForce powered gaming PC (ShadowPlay)

Thanks to Nvidia's GeForce Experience software you can use ShadowPlay to record or stream your gameplay with friends and gamers (works whether you're good or bad at gaming).

Nvidia also has Nvidia Broadcast which may also be beneficial to those livestreaming themselves, or even for video conference calls and voice chats with AI-enhanced features.

All these features may eventually be encorporated into a single Nvidia App which is currently in beta.

Being tightly integrated with the drivers and developed by Nvidia themselves, this often would be the least resource intensive method to get the job done.

AMD Radeon powered gaming PC (formerly Relive: Record & Stream)

AMD's Adrenaline software includes a tab titled Record & Stream, within which you can setup to record or stream your gameplay for friends and gamers alike (works whether you're good or bad at gaming).

Being tightly integrated with the drivers and developed by AMD themselves, this often would be the least resource intensive method to get the job done.

Third-party solution

If Microsoft, Nvidia, or AMD's recording/streaming solutions aren't doing the job for you; fear not. There is a reputable third-party option to try out too!

OBS Studio

OBS Studio is an open source & free software for video recording and live streaming, with plenty of features including audio mixing and scene switching to name a few. This is one of the most frequent suggested solutions on reddit when users ask what to use, so it seems to be the most popular without many having an argument against it.

Conclusion

Whatever you do, don't just blindly follow the masses! The recording or streaming settings that you want could wildly differ from what others want, and the difference in such settings could cause a large difference in how much system resources are used in the process, from CPU/GPU & immediate gameplay performance to longer-term considerations such as how much storage space it consumes. Try each software with the settings that suit you best, and then figure out which one is right for you.

If you're not too picky, Nvidia or AMD's built-in solutions are an easy option.
