Editors' Review


ExKode's Dxtory captures DirectX and OpenGL video data directly from surface memory for fast and lossless recording. It records audio from multiple sources and supports third-party video codecs and broadcast output. You can maximize write speed to storage by creating multiple folders and setting custom bit rates for each. Dxtory is free to try with limitations, including a watermark on output.


Settings: Dxtory's tabbed interface accesses Global, Advanced, Screenshot, Hotkey, Folder, and many other settings, including (of course) Video and Audio. Many settings can't be found in comparably priced "all-in-one" video suites. For example, the Overlay Settings not only offers Status options but also color-coded frame and status indicators.

Profiles: The Profiles menu affords quick access to elaborate configurations. Clicking Edit Profile opens a compact manager.

Screen capture: We could customize screenshots with margin, scaling, and clipping options, save clips in multiple formats, enable High Speed and Auto Repeat options, and specify JPEG quality.

DirectShow output: Video data captured by Dxtory can be sourced to many video applications, including broadcasting.


Trial limits: Dxtory's watermark didn't bother us, but waiting for the free trial nag screen to load the app cooled our enthusiasm for the full version, and the Maximize button is disabled.

Bottom Line

Free trial limitations don't hide Dxtory's advantages over more broadly focused competitors. While it's not for casual users, Dxtory is affordable enough to be a great choice for gamers, advanced amateurs, and other users who need more than what's offered by comparably priced programs.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Dxtory 2.0.128.

"Best Recorder For PC Gaming"

July 11, 2014  |  By RetroBolt

 |  Version: Dxtory 2.0.127


Doesn't slow down your FPS (Frames Per Second) when recording near as much as FRAPS does.


Trial Version's huge thumbnail becomes very annoying.


If you have some money to spare and want to record smooth gameplay, this is the optimal program.

"It's alright..."

June 09, 2013  |  By DMacswain

 |  Version: Dxtory 2.0.122


-An okay recorder, does what is advertised.


-Doesn't record on-screen audio
-DO NOT do Express Installation. Installs Pricepeep, TopArcadeHits, and FreeRideGames without prompt or consent.


May be useful to some people and some of their purposes, but was not for mine, and DID NOT appreciate it installing 3 extra programs, aside from the ones advertised or asked to.

"nice clean cap"

June 06, 2009  |  By gordonshummway

 |  Version: Dxtory 1.0.47


Lots of vid modes.
Any rescale 10% to 100%.
Seems to like OpenGL. Very fast, low CPU / GPU resources.
FPS counter shows orig frame rate AND cap frame rate. Nice!


Can't find a vid format that VLC player likes (yet), but media player likes all of them.
