YouTube Equipment You Should Have.
Game Recording [Capture Card & Game Recording Software]
Game recording software, or hardware, is what you will use to capture your in-game footage. The worst thing you can do is try to point a camera at the screen of your computer or television; recording your screen directly is a must. What kind of game capture equipment you need will depend on what kind of game you are playing.
The advantages of using Filmora Scrn to record YouTube Gameplay video:
Record 4K gameplay and high-space game up to 120 FPS (on Windows)
Record gameplay and webcam at the same time
Mark the important moment with the Marker feature when playing the game
Basic video editing tools provide trimming, cutting, and merging features as well as annotation effects
Audio Recording Devices
Your audio recording is extremely important. The thing that will set you apart from other people posting gaming commentary is your personality, and that will only come across if your videos have clear audio. It does not do you much good to be hilarious in a fuzzy commentary track.
A lot of YouTube gamers, especially gamers who are just starting to make videos, go with the Zalman ZM-Mic1 which can be used in combination with headphones. The Zalman might pick up background sounds, like mouse clicks, which is not ideal. However, it will give you significantly better audio than recording directly from your computer and at under $10 it will not be a purchase you regret. The Zalman is a great starter-mic, especially if you download the free audio editing program Audacity and use it to clean up the little imperfections in your recording. Audacity can be downloaded at Audacityteam.org.
Video Recording Devices
If you are going to add a facecam into your videos then it should be high quality, but it does not need to be a top of the line 4K recording. Rather than buying a $1000 DSLR for reaction shots you should go with a reliable webcam. Before you make a decision about what kind of webcam to get consider how often you will be using your facecam. Not all gaming videos need one. If you play a lot of survival horror games then your reactions will be a key element in your videos, but if you are not playing games that will cause you to have amusing reactions then a facecam will not really add anything to a viewer’s experience.
