How to Capturing Your Gameplay
If you’re like most people, you’ll love to record your gameplay and share what you’ve been doing with the world. Capturing video from games has always been tricky, as each platform has its own processes and limitations. PC gaming has no shortage of recording utilities, but it’s hard to find a single piece of software that supports every flavor of game on the market.
Fortunately, Sony has you covered. The PlayStation 4 makes recording video remarkably convenient with a built-in, easy-to-use system that works with any PS4 game. Here’s how to get started:
How to start a recording on PlayStation 4: Step 1 – Press the share button on your PS4 controller (the square button) and select ‘Start Broadcast’ from the menu that appears. The controls are shown here.
Step 2 – Press the share button again to enter Broadcast mode. The Share menu will appear on your TV and you’ll be able to select video quality, toggle comments and start recording. Here’s a quick overview of the options.
How To Create A Video Game With Sony’s PSVR + Share It With The World
Sony’s PlayStation VR (PSVR) is a very interesting piece of gaming hardware, as it includes a headset which can be used with a whole bunch of PS4 games. But the headset is an important part of the package, and if you want to share your VR experiences with a wider audience you’re going to want to record them. You’re also going to want to make sure that you don’t have to go through the process of recording them every time you play. So, here’s how to set up PSVR so that you can record your VR sessions with ease.
The first step is to actually connect the PSVR headset to PlayStation 4. The process is very simple and easy, it just involves connecting a single HDMI cable into both devices, but the HDMI port on your PS4 may be difficult to access if your console is inside its original packaging. The easiest way to do it is by opening up the box, but if you’d rather not do that you can simply unplug your PS4 and turn it over, then access the HDMI port through the back of the console.
However, you can also record in a variety of formats, such as MKV, AVI and MP4. This is also the case with PS3 (The old PS3 has an option for DVD and DVD-R, but it’s not available for the newer model).
For PSD, if it is not in the list of formats that you can select, then you can’t record your video. If you want to record in a format that does not appear on the list, then choose a Mp4 file for it. Then select where you want to save your “recording”. Then click “Start Recording”.
When done recording, go to where you saved your recording and copy the file. Then you can upload it to YouTube or other video sharing sites that support the file format you choose to save it in.
Note: You must convert this file after uploading it to a site that supports .mp4 formatting.
Conclusion: All You Need To Know About PS4 Recording And How To Stop It
If you’re wondering, then yes, you can record your gameplay on the PS4. The console includes the ability to capture video of your exploits and keep the memories forever. But you’ll have to be prepared to do a little work if you want the best results. For example, you’ll need to decide whether you’re going to capture in MP4 or for use with streaming services like Twitch.tv, which requires OBS Studio. The latter is ideal if you want to capture your game footage in HD and upload it to social media sites. However, it also makes that footage susceptible to easy edits.
You can also use the PS4’s built in screen recorder, but to get the best results you’ll need to keep the controls simple (at least at first) and make sure you’re recording only what’s onscreen. Otherwise, you’ll produce a video that’s unwatchable by the human eye. For example, try to record a challenging boss fight, but don’t include the annoying stop motion timed effects like the spinning blades that appear on screen.
