Well, like the title says, I was wondering if I could play a full screen game and create an mpeg file from it.

I see all the video clips on the internet of people beating Mario in record time and was wondering how they got it into a movie format.

Any ideas? (Hopefully some freeware rather than having to spend $100 on a TV tuner or something... :whistling: )

Thanks in advance.

It's not free but Fraps is a great movie capturing utility. ( www.fraps.com )

It's main features are:
-Frames per second display in one corner of the game (if you want)
-Benchmarking (min., max., and average FPS)
-Screen shot taker
-Video capture utility:
~Select from 25, 30, 50, 60, or your own number of FPS recording rate
~Choice to record sound, or don't
~Ability to record full screen or it will automatically half the size if you want
~If making tutorials or something similair, ability to hide the cursor

It's not free but it's cheap ($37). There is a free version, but you can only record up to 30 seconds of video at a set rate of 25 FPS I believe.
