PC gaming service company Raptr has announced a brand new service that promises to allow users to record and stream PC gameplay easier than ever.
Called the Game Video Recorder, the program will work with a number of AMD- and Nvidia-based graphics cards with little to no degradation of overall system performance.
The program is absolutely free of charge, and will allow users to record and stream their games for an infinite amount of time. A new feature known as Instant Replay will all players to save up to 20 minutes of gameplay even if its a bit after the fact.
“Watching recorded and live-streamed PC gameplay footage has quietly become a massive trend involving tens of millions of viewers and billions of hours spent watching,” Raptr co-founder and CEO Dennis Fong said in a press release. “But to date, only a modest fraction of gamers actually record and stream some of their gaming exploits, because the tools haven’t been easy, accessible or resource-efficient enough.”
The GVR service will be supported by more than 5,000 games, according to Raptr. It can be downloaded via the company’s official website, Raptr.com.
Mike’s Musings: Any time a product is released that makes things easier to do, I’m all for it. I’ll definitely give this a shot, but because of my love of inserting custom graphics into the stream, I feel I won’t use it much if that ability isn’t allowed.
