Fraps doesn't have time to compress the video as it records so the resulting file is always big, that's why you have to use some other program instead to compress it before you upload it to Youtube.

If I record a long map, I'll mostly end up with like 10GB of videofiles (recording in high-res). It's normal.

You're surprised HD takes up more space or something?

Any recommendation for PC specs for this? My laptop runs Vista Ultimate on a 2.2GHz AMD dual-core with 4GB RAM and Radeon 3200 graphics, but I still lag horribly while recording, even when I make sure useless stuff isn't running in the background and osu!'s on the lowest settings, blahblah, all that stuff. :|


Its highly cpu depending seeing as I got the same except for AMD Turion X2 Ultra @ 2.4GHz and recording at 1024x576 stays at the 60fps most of the time.

Alternatively you could use Virtualdub with x264vfw to encode your video's HD quality. However I do stress the need for your videos to be at least 720p (1280x720)

These are my settings:

So you download Virtualdub (Freeware) Download

Then get x264vfw (Free codec) Download and install it.

Set up Fraps like this:


Set up osu! something like this if you can:


You might wonder why I use 1280x800. This is because it comes as close to 720p as osu! gives you the option to render :)

Then go ahead and record a replay of yourself of even when spectating someone :D

Extract Virtualdub to somewhere and open it.

Open the avi Fraps made in Virtualdub (File->Open Video File)


If your video is that long so that Fraps generated multiple files you can just go to File->Append AVI segment so it will put the videos behind eachother :)

Ok first problem. Youtube loves videos the most when its fedded in 720p but we just recorded using 1280x800. This is where a little editing comes in handy.

Go to Filters (Video->Filters or CTRL-F)
And from there click on Add and search for the resize filter.


And then from there we can setup the settings for resizing to 720p correctly.


Here I choose for a Letterbox/Crop. I choose this options because you will always maintain your aspect ratio and the quality will not go down. All we'll be doing is cutting off some of the screen which is irrelevant.

Then its time to setup the codec we'll be using for encoding the video to a youtube acceptable format.
Go to Video->Compression and search for the x264vfw codec you installed.


In this screen you can see some of the settings you can make as where the ratefactor should be noted as one of the most important settings in here. This ratio will be make or break your video's quality and try to regulate the filesize as well.
I use 25 myself because I found out this has been working rather well. But if anyone has better settings that will make the videos even more better on Youtube, don't hestitate to tell me.

Also make sure the Virtualdub Hack is checked.

Now we have the basic settings to make a good video.

If you are smart I recommend saving the preset you just made or just lazily download my processing settings here

You can accomplish this task by going to File->Save Processing Settings, (Load for loading them ;) )

Then you could eventually cut out some material you don't want or add some text in virtualdub itself. I refer to the helpfile/FAQ's from Virtualdub itself for that.

Well then you can just go to File->Save as AVI, Choose a spot and save :)
You should see the status of the movie you're rendering.


After you are done you can upload the file to Youtube and after it's been processed it will show up and get the HD version a little while later.

And thats how you do it with Virtualdub and x264vfw :)

I am rendering the file used in this tutorial as we speak and will be editing this post to link to the video to show you guys the quality :)

Have fun! :D Jeffro

Edit: Here is the video aka the result:
