You have to get a recording program and run it while you play the replay. The replays themselves utilize the World of Tanks EXE to run, they can't be used as media files in themselves

1) Buy fraps.
2) Run fraps, set it to record
3) Play your replay, while fraps records it.
4) Trim your fraps recording so that only the replay is in the actual video file and not you starting up the replay, etc
5) Upload the resulting video to youtube

Or, if you want us to see your replay, just host the replay itself on a website like mediafire or mwreplays. Much easier and quicker.

Download Fraps,(a screen recorder)
go through installation, and when done just start fraps and the when you got it to record, play the replay or the game
then upload the fraps video recording to youtube.


you see the replay file is only like 500k, while videos that are 15 mins are usualy 30mb. thats cause the replay file is not a video. its just a bunch of commands the computer recorded, and when you start the replay, the computer replicates the exact commands you made to make the exact same game you played,
this, i find is very smart in saving space

If you want High Res HD content on Youtube, you need to first record the replay with fraps at 30 fps and full size (if you have a 1080p HD monitor resolution).

Then use what ever movieeditor program, to convert the resulting Fraps raw footage into VMW or H.264 format.

I use the free Windows Live Moviemaker for that conversion, with the following settings as recommended by Youtube for HD content:
Width : 1920
Height : 1080
Bitrate : 50000
Sound : 384 kbit/s Stereo 44.1 Khz

Filesize wise  you are talking big files.
As an example, my latest video ( http://forum.worldof...p-daily-double/ ) of a battle lasting 8 minutes and 9 seconds, had the following file sizes
Fraps RAW footage : 15.8 GB.
Converted to VMW : 1.61 GB.

Thank God for 100/100 Mbit/s uncapped Fiber ;)

I tried Overwolf and found the video quality wasn't very good. Maybe there was a setting I missed but I looked at em and didn't see where I could get better quality. You can use Fraps for free but the free version is very limited in how much time you can record in a single session.

Dunno how you missed similar threads in forum search, seems like there is a question about this topic every month or so. Would be good if there was a sticky guide in the Replay section. I'd be happy to make one if I knew it would be a sticky.

MSI Afterburner (http://event.msi.com...er/download.htm) is a free program used for overclocking and monitoring computer vitals, but they recently added a video recording feature. It's very good and easily rivals Fraps.

Here's a vid I recorded with it and compressed using SUPER (http://download-supe...essor.fyxm.net/), which is also free, to convert it to a youtube-friendly format.

Now I don't have a 1080p monitor, only 720, so that's the best I can record in. Here's what I got taking a 20gb source video and compressed down to a 700k mp4.

Here's the video: http://www.youtube.c...LQ&feature=plcp

SUPER Settings:
Output to MP4
Video codec to H 264/AVC
Video Scale to NoChange
Frame/sec to 30
Bitrate to 9792
Checked Hi Quality under Options
Left everything else default.

I just downloaded MSI afterburner, I honestly do not know what the heck I am doing. Can anyone explain it in layman's' terms?
Is there any way to just get the performance boost or whatever the he11 that is and the recording function?

I only need/want 720p.....I have a brand new graphics card so I don't think that is too much to ask for.  Also, does anyone know how to send the rendered down fiel to others using email? I need to settle a bet

it should be pretty straight forward.

first open MSI afterburner.

What you'll see is a lot of useless junk, unless of course you're wanting to monitor your CPU clock speed or other such nonsense.

click on settings; this will be in the lower right corner.

First select which key you want to use for video capture. I recommend a combo. I use "control"+ "numpad +"

go to video capture and choose what quality you want. I go for 90%. That gives me good quality without making the file size ridiculous.

16:9 720p is youtube high quality.

I'd set the frame rate at 45. The higher the FPS you capture the bigger the file size. If you go for 50 or 60 fps you may get inflated file sizes.

Don't bother limiting the FPS. It'll cap at 45 anyway if you followed the previous instructions.

next designated where you want recorded files to go. petty straight forward.

you an also use a second audio source if you want to record commentary (its a recent feature)

I'd recommend recording replays of battles instead of actual battles to save some CPU power for displaying the game and recording at the same time for an optimal frame rate. I have been able to record gameplay live without any FPS issues but I'm not sure what your setup is.


You'll still end up with 3 or 5 gigs worth of video file. You'll need to compress it down to a more manageable size. I recommend using xvid video codec. its free and simple to use. You can compress video with virtual dub. its pretty neato.

My only problem is finding a quality video editor. All versions of windows movie make seem to kill my video quality so I've taken leaving the majority of my work unedited. Supposedly virtual dub also doubles as an editor but its UI is clunky at best.

I want to record my replays, but the replay isnt compatible with the current client version. Is there a way to allow it to play the replay on the new client?

Not that I know of. Find the client version you need and download it of the web? Otherwise just say to hell with it and forget about that replay.
