Record the replay? Then what kind of software will I use to record it? That's what I mean.

This. Use OBS; extremely small and low-maintenance for what it does. It's also free.

It's made for streaming and is great for it, but it lets you save local recordings as well; and, while not exactly small, the output files aren't a gajillion gigabytes large like FRAPS puts out.

I use Bandicam, doesn't reduce my FPS at all and don't need to compress the file after recording. (430mb for a 3 min song)

Depending on the preset/settings you use, you can get all that + 1080p ready to upload to youtube.



Don't mean to advertise here but if you want an example of the video quality then.

Example Vids

Also use OBS with a different profile since my streaming profile is lower with the resolution. Can only say positiv things about obs so i can definitly recommend it.

Shouldn't Fraps work without lag, unless you have a super low-end PC? I get like 2000fps normally..

Best best thing is to get a alternate computer to do the recording, or a capture card I think,

MSI afterburner for recording and handbrake to encode
posted
i've always had an interest in toying around with recording software. fraps is the basic choice for most people, but i find that it gives me some distracting "screen tear" at some points. it could just be my monitor, but that's one of the main reasons why i'd only use it for replays. someone mentioned bandicam in the thread earlier, and i quite like it. it has options for video encoding settings so your video files won't be infinity gigabytes in size. also, if you use it for different games and have commentary over them, it has an option to record to two separate audio tracks, which is good in case your voice is too quiet or too loud. the one i use most for osu, however, is mirillis action. it's kind of like bandicam, but with a nice gui. it doesn't have as many encoding options, but the newer versions have a built-in thing to stream to twitch (although i think it's a paid service). what attracts me to action is the fact that despite i have a mediocre pc, it's surprisingly stable on most games.

tl;dr -
fraps - pretty good, but it has big file sizes and you might get screen tearing
bandicam - really good
action - good if your pc isn't

Try FFSplit. It's easier to use than OBS imo.

Fraps is good enough

imma using fraps with 30 fps setting
and my osu in 60 frame limiter with VSync
when recording osu force my fraps to run at 60 fps . but record result still 30 fps :D

The best way to do it is to use fraps while recording to a separate hard drive. If your computer really can't handle it you can play around with the settings. (Lower the frame rate; around 23.976 fps will do. Check Half-size)
If recording while playing live lags you, just record the replay.
A handy tool is also handbrake (google it) to encode those 5 GB videos to something around 10 MB. It's really handy. Especially since there is a very subtle quality loss which you won't notice if you don't look hard enough.

There is also a tool in the Development forums which does the work for you very nicely

If you want to record live, there is Dxtory. It's not free though, but you can choose your own encoder, use a second hard drive for recording, a fps limiter and so on.

Here is my live play test from 2 years ago.
