There is an option in settings that says "enable battle recording." Click that and you will record every battle you play, and they will be saved in the game folder under "Replays."

Go in to your Options, and at the bottom of the first tab there is a checkbox that says, "Record Battles" or something along those lines.  Just check that, and all your battles will be recorded and stored in your "Replays" folder inside the main WoT folder.

It requires the WoT client to play them back though, and it must be closed before you try to watch them - but at that point you could use Fraps or something to convert it to something you could post on YouTube.

I have been in "Settings". Then I enabled "Battle Recording" under "Games".
I checked my main World of Tanks folder but there was nothing there, even after a battle. My access to WoT is on the desktop so I know there is nothing in the folder because I checked.

Does anyone know an answer to my problem? If so, that would help a lot! Thanks.

There a couple of ways to do this:

WoT comes with an in-game battle replay system. When you are in your garage in WoT, click on settings, and you should see an option that says "Enable Battle Recording." If the box is already checked, then it is enabled. These files are saved to your Word of Tanks game folder to a folder named "replays." To view your replays, just close the game client, and double click on the replay you want to view. WoT replay files are not video captures or records, but instead are a record of the data of your match. Each replay file includes the name of the tank you used and the map the battle was on.

If you want to actually record a video or do a video capture of the battle, you can do so during the battle or run a video capture ap while watching a replay. I recommend using an application suite called OverWolf, which is provided by Wargaming for free on the WoT website: http://worldoftanks....soft/show/1665/

It is not that large of an app, doesn't use a lot of system resources, and has a decent video capture application with it. You can also use FRAPS, but the freeware version only allows recordings of 30 seconds. You would have to buy the pro version of FRAPS if you want to record longer videos of your game play. FRAPS recordings are better quality IMHO than the OverWolf.  There are some other good freeware video capture apps out there too.

Hope that helps.

The "replays" folder will be in your World of Tanks game folder on the hard drive you have World of Tanks saved to. If it is saved to your "C:" drive, then it will be here:

C:\Program Files\World of Tanks\replays

If it is on your "D" drive like mine is, then it will be at: D:\World of Tanks\replays

If you are not sure and you have a Window OS, just use the search function and search for World of Tanks. Once you locate the main game folder, open it up, and you should be able to find your "replays" folder.

I was viewing some replays the other day and everything was working fine. Today I looked for a just played game and I have no recordings past Jan. 8, 2013 even though the settings have recording enabled. I turned it on and off, etc. but no more recordings are being made. Ideas? I realize someone will say," Reinstall".


Found out the computer clock got reset by a big thunderstorm we had so it was recording but with the wrong date. Doh!
