You have to screen cap it...at least as far as I know...there might be a converter...

If no one can answer your question here...send a PM to Millbarge. He has his own YouTube videos he uploads all the time.

Your game replays in their native form are not videos at all and therefore you will need to use some sort of video capture software to create/edit video files of them. I use Fraps, set the desired frame-rate to 100 and have the output sent to a second hard drive. Your mileage may vary.

You have to use video capture software if you want to record gameplays or WoT replays to video. You can download and use the WoT Social Ap because it has a video capture feature to record videos of your WoT replays or to record gameplay footage as you are playing a match.

It is called OverWolf and is freeware: http://worldoftanks....soft/show/1665/

I use it, and I like it; however, you can choose to use another recording ap if you want. FRAPS is another freeware program that you can use, but the free version limits video record time to 30 seconds; so, if you wanted to record longer vidoes, you would have to buy the "pro" version.

Here is another video capture ap I have used as well: http://www.snapfiles...screen2exe.html

MSI Afterburner is another free option.

i've recorded my screen before (withouth audio tho) so i kinda know how to make it. but having to record the screen instead of just converting is kinda bothersome.
thanks for answers

To my knowledge, there is not a way to convert the WoT replays to another format. It isn't really a recorded video, but it is more a recording of the WoT data from your match.

Like I said Overwolf is a good option IMHO. I have been using it the last few weeks, and it works well. Isn't that big of download, doesn't bog the system down, and it does what I need it to do. Plus, it is free. Also, very stable. I have not had any crashes or hang ups.

X-fire can record games too, though I've not had much luck with it myself. I get audio with a black screen.

I use Fraps, which creates an enormous file, Then I compress it with Badaboom, which uses the GPU instead of the CPU to re-encode and therefore is about 4-5 times faster than normal encoding.
