"multiple windows with differing fps + this = dead ram."

April 10, 2014  |  By niceer

 |  Version: Fraps 3.5.9

Pros

There are search engines for better alternatives.

Cons

This tries to display total fps, which is bad if you have multiple windows on screen.

Summary

Had to buy 2 sets of ram because this trashed the old ones.

"Please stop."

December 09, 2012  |  By goldfinger79

 |  Version: Fraps 3.5.9

Pros

Don't know

Cons

Packaged with IncrediBar
Hijacked browser
Reset homepage
Pissed me off and I erased it before trying it out

Summary

I don't know if it is cnet or the software maker who includes IncreDibar with the downloads. This is the second download packaged with this crap. Without even giving you the option, the IB installs and proceeds to change your homepage--basically hijacking your browser. If we wanted to change our browser settings, we know how to do it. This is annoying. I can't tell you if Fraps is any good because I erased it completely before using it after the addons altered my browser settings. I'll try to download it directly from the developer's website.

"Records your finest moments of gameplay!"

October 31, 2011  |  By cashtime11

 |  Version: Fraps 3.4.7

Pros

Records with very little affect on the game's video display. Plus it records all sound.

Cons

The trial version only records for 30 seconds at a time. In my opinion, the price of the full version is too high, unless you're a dedicated gamer who likes to record everything they ever play :-;
My Windows Media Player doesn't play sound on the Fraps recordings, but does when they're converted to WMV format (but that's probably WMP not having the right codecs).

Summary

The best on-screen video recorder I've found so far. If you don't want to pay for the full version of Fraps, you can use the trial version of Fraps to record your favourite game, in a series of 30 second clips, then edit them all together as a kind of highlight video.
