Recording Video Game's, Tutorial for Consoles and PC's


STEP 1 : Get the Dazzle recorder, it is around 50$ but can easily pay for itself if you got hit videos.

STEP 2: Get some AV cables..(under 5$ most places) this is for the dazzle

Step 3: Plug the AV cables into your dazzle, and plug the other side into your tv

Step 4: Plug the usb cord from your dazzle into your computer

Step 5: Have your game system plugged into your tv

Step 6: Dazzle software installation, than your ready to start recording your console games


         STEP 1: Get a video recording program, there are some great free ones such as
  • Game Cam -Great to start with
  • Taksi - a open source version of fraps - have not myself tried it though
FRAPS (which is free for 30 second videos) full edition is a couple dollars, but is by far best out there in terms of programs, i use it personally 

STEP 2: Not everyone knows that video recording can take up huge amounts of space, for instance my recording of minecraft that was a few minutes was a couple gb. Make sure you have proper memory 

STEP 3: Video recording uses a good amount of your computers resources, Unless your showing off this games graphics only, i would tone it down to normal unless you have a good gaming computer.  (this is not really optional, you will experience lag, audio misplacement, video errors if comp freezes)

STEP 4: Once you edited the program to how you like start the program, check what button you have to push to start recording, than keep program running and minamize. Start your game, press the record button and your good to go ( make sure it is not a common button, ive gamed a whole day once and pressed it throughout without knowing, tons upon tons of videos/unused space)

STEP 5: Look at the program and see where the output directory is , Go to said directory and you should see your video, now you need a editing program. WINDOWS LIVE MOVIE MAKER, is great, windows actually made a decent free program, if you do not have windows, than look up free video editors here are a couple :

Step 6: After you have edited your video, it will be ready for uploading, But youtube has a size limit, I use LEAWO AVI CONVERTER , its free , and converts your video to .avi and decreases size by a ton, increases quality, and is a common video type for youtube.  Also this program does not put a nasty watermark on your video.

STEP 7: upload to youtube or whatever site you want to use

Hope this helped, i was rather lost when i first started a few months ago

Want to learn Japanese?

    I have 4 years of Japanese under my belt from highschool and college, still 3 more years of college japanese to go but school can only teach you so much. Elementary Japanese by Yoko Hasegawa actually tought me a good amount of japanese.  Classes in school are good, but the teachers have to teach you a set curriculum that does not teach you how to speak japanese, it teaches you how to pass end of year final in japanese. Other books are also acceptable, but they introduce kanji/katakana/hiragana very fast and write the rest of the whole book in only that introducing new kanji characters and expecting you to instantly memorize it, People are not going to pick up on Katakana / hiragana instantly this book slowly introduces it. This book teaches you basically how to speak normal daily japanese. Starting from the very basics it teaches you how to read Hiragana, Katakana, and throws in some kanji in the early chapters, but the main goal of those chapters is to actually learn the language. Throughout the book it slowly gives you more and more kanji/katakana/hiragana to the point where you will know  a decent amount by the time you finish.  Finishing the book i still have to look up some kanji, But i know hiragana, katakana, about 200 more kanji that school didnt teach me. Also how to actually keep a on going conversation going in japanese without having to think for a moment about what to say. Instead of giving you only variables to put into a equation like school this book gives you pre made sentences that are very common in the language, But Also after words teaches you how to conjugate words to make your own sentences.  So if you want to learn about as much japanese as a 2nd/3rd grader in japan knows pick up this book. Also PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE.  In my free time i visit web forums and just talk in very basic simple sentences the more you do it the less you will forget and the easier it will become.

Also if you want help with your japanese, or some basic guides/websites feel free to ask and i will put out some links for you to websites with flashcards/web boards.  I also know a chunk myself so i can answer most of your questions.
