You might wonder why I use 1280x800. This is because it comes as close to 720p as osu! gives you the option to render :)
1. Open osu!.current user name here.cfg (its in the same folder as osu!.exe)
2. Edit line Height = 800 to Height = 720
3. Open osu!
4. ??????
5. PROFIT!

Peppy should add a 720p resolution preset too tho seeing as there is the 1920x1080 one too...

Why can I only record 30 seconds? :(

I've found that a combination of HyperCam+Xvid to record, and VirtualDub to edit, works fairly well. however, I haven't tried it with osu! specifically yet; Xvid may be a bit fickle, so you may have to turn a setting or two down. if that is the case, downloading the CamStudio Lossless Codec (poor man's xvid) may also boost performance.

I wouldn't use Hypercam IMO, you will loose quality or it will not keep up with the frames.

And xvid is compressor but its better to first use the lossless codec in your case then and then use virtualdub with the right codecs to get out a nice image :)

lossless codec has NOTHING to do with xvid because lossless is nill compression :)

I have had very good quality with HyperCam. I was fed up with Fraps because it doesn't work in as many situations as HyperCam, so I did some tinkering with a HyperCam+Xvid combo and it looks just as good. uploading as -lossy a video as possible is certainly what YouTube wants you to do but it seems near pointless

Xvid is better than CamStudio's mess, assuredly. CamStudio's codec is for computers that can't do high-level Xvid options well

And then there's h.264 which is even better then XviD :)

And when x264 (or MeGUI if you don't want to mess with command lines) is free there is no excuse to use XviD.

And the final size isn't too horrible either, a 2 minute 720p video could easily go to ~12Mb if you compress it right.
(Mine end up at around 60Mb though since I use ~4096kbps bitrate for some reason...)

you mean DivX, not XviD

yes, the backwards spelling was intentional, "copyleft of DivX" lol

actually XviD has support for H.263, which while certainly isn't H.264, was at one point excellent for YouTube

edit: oh hey MeGUI takes XviD

I did mean XviD. It's great for smaller videos but I wouldn't really used it with HD stuff tbh.
DivX is quite the poo and is rarely used nowadays afaik (only seen it as a streaming codec)

And MeGUI has support for Snow, x264 and XviD

oh, I'm sorry, it's just when I saw this...

...I thought you were referring to how DivX was not free, thus pointless when there are free alternatives, etc

About the Fraps+Sony Vegas method.
I recorded a 1:40 video of me playing a beatmap.
When I finished rendering with the settings on the first page, it was a 236mb file.
Anyone know how to lower the size so it would be easier for Youtube to upload?

I've been having a ton of random slowdown issues with my Fraps lately.

I can't seem to record anything now without the framerate dropping to like 6-8 fps at some points and screwing up the video.

At first I thought it was just that there were too many circles on the screen (I was recording streamy videos) but I did a video of JtB in the past and it went flawlessly on the first try so I don't think that's the problem.

I've tried closing everything else I have running, turning off all the graphical bonus things in osu, reducing resolution, and limiting framerate even below 30 to see if that solves anything but still nothing.

Maybe I just have to wait til I get a new computer that can handle it better. :/

For sound recording, make sure there's some recording volume, for me it was turned to zero by default. but do not turn the knob to max cause it very possibly causes distortion in sound and that sounds horrible. also stereo mix can be found on your sound driver manager. For me it's realtek and it really likes to make this distortion sound if recording is too high. Also i have to have sound settings on fraps on "Use Windows input".

I only have the free version of fraps. Is this only for people who have the full version? D;
posted
You should still be able to record videos through this method, but I think you'll just have a time limitation in recording and an ugly watermark (I think?). I don't know, I don't use Fraps. XD
posted
You can also do the same recording with xfire and still use my virtualdub tutorial. :) (or just get the full version of fraps, it isn't hard to get.)

So what exactly is a good filesize for youtube, or what are the sizes of your videos after you guys are done with everything?
