With Gameshots, you customize your audio and video settings for your gameplay recordings, if you'd like to:

  • Share your clips online but have a slow internet connection. In this case, you can reduce the video quality from 1080p to 720p, as an example.
  • Conserve disk space on your desktop/laptop by lowering the video quality of your recordings thus reducing the space each recording takes.  
  • Mute licensed music to avoid copyright strikes while streaming
  • Adjust your audio commentary while you game
  • And much more!


To do this:

  • Launch Gameshots and select the gear icon located on the left
  • Click on the "Capture" tab
  • Set video controls or customize them manually
  • Choose to enable system sound or microphone and set the levels for each
  • Click on "Save changes"


Just follow the detailed steps and illustrations below to get started or tap the hyperlinks given above.


How can I adjust my video settings for my recordings?


1. Launch Gameshots and select the gear icon.


 

2. Click on the "Capture", as shown below.



3. In the "Video controls" section, you can choose between "Low Quality", "Medium Quality", and "High Quality" depending on your preferences.



4. In case you want more granular control, toggle the "Customize manually" switch. 



5. You'll then be able to customize the:


  • Resolution: A lower resolution will reduce the quality but occupy less disk space.
  • Bitrate: This determines the size and quality of your audio and video. A higher bitrate will give you better audio and video quality but will also occupy more disk space for each recording.
  • FPS: This allows you to adjust the FPS of your recording. 


You can also access "Advanced settings" which lets you decide the: 

  • Encoder: Allows you to choose your GPU or iGPU-based codec for improved system performance. 
  • Preset: Adjust your CPU/GPU usage according to your system's capability. A higher CPU/GPU usage will result in better recording quality.


6. Tap on "Save Changes" below to apply them to future recordings.



Voila! You can now refer to the next section if you want to customize audio settings too.
