Greetings all tankers!

People have been asking in the Gameplay Discussion section about how to put a replay on Youtube, so I decided to make a nice tutorial explaining y'all how to go about doing that.

Prerequisites:

1. World of Tanks game client (doh!);
2. Enable replays in World of Tanks (Settings / Game / Enable Replay Recording);
3. Install latest MSI Afterburner Beta;
4. Configure MSI Afterburner to:
4a. Record Video in MJPEG Format (offers best compression while preserving most quality)
4b. Record with audio
4c. Offer best performance while recording. That's a bit more tricky and involves some computer knowledge. Start with full resolution recording at 30 fps with quality at 80% and go down from there. If the recorded video is choppy or garbled or lagging, then reduce quality slider all the way to 50%, gradually. If still not satisfied, try 25 fps or half resolution. Baseline comparison: my CPU is a dual-core E6750, overclocked to 2.3 GHz and it records at 1920x1116 with 80% quality and 30 FPS just fine.
4d. Choose another HDD if possible for recorded video destination. If you have 2 HDDs (C: and D:) and WoT is installed on C:, then choose a folder on D: as video file destination.
4e. Set up a recording shortcut; I personally use Ctrl & "Numpad -", because they're located on exact diagonal opposites on my Keyboard, but really it's up to you what you choose.
5. (optional) Install a video converter software. Reason for this is that MSI Afterburner files tend to be pretty big; with 1920x1116 at 30 fps, a 15 minutes match takes up 3.5 GB on your HDD. This poses no problem by itself, but you might have an issue uploading such a big file to Youtube for two reasons:
5a: Your Youtube account might not allow that;
5b. Your connection speed (bandwidth) might not be so great.
I personally recommend AVS Video Converter, but that costs money. However, after trying MANY converter products, I found out that it's the only one able to quickly convert MJPEG video files created with MSI Afterburner with almost no drop in quality and if you have a CUDA-enabled graphics card, it's really a blast, it converts a 3.5 GB file in 10 minutes tops. Also, you can use it to directly upload your end-result to Youtube from the program itself, it supports batch uploading, batch converting and so on. If you don't want to pay a dime, try VirtualDUB, but that's more technical, it needs codecs and it's highly manual.

Using the above, you will be able to post high quality, vivid videos of your achievements with virtually no hassle.

Below you can see one of the many videos I've put up on Youtube as an example how the end result. It's 1080p, quality is good, it doesn't skip, doesn't lag, etc.

Click me for HD view.

They both cost money. Sony Vegas Pro 11 costs... 600 USD. Seriously?

I'm sure he did, but piracy is not condoned on these forums. And there are countries where piracy is more strictly regulated than in others (just a random example, here, in Italy, the Piratebay is blocked and it cannot be directly accessed). That, and some people just don't want to do it. So he's presenting a legal/free (if you go with VirtualDUB) way to get the job done.

+1 from me :P


Cheers.

Look, if you want to steal, go steal. Not my problem.
What I'm trying to do here is offer legit players a legit method to capture their replays and post them to Youtube.
For the record, I have bought AVS Video Converter and I am really happy with it. After all, it costs about the same as one month of WoT (from my perspective, I usually spend 50 EUR/month on WoT).
I do NOT condone piracy and will NOT post a tutorial involving pirated software. I strongly suggest you either buy the product or not use it.

Now let's please keep this thread clean of piracy and focus on how to legally post your replays to Youtube.
Thank you for understanding.

What format exactly are you using for AVS Video Converter? For example open a video file you compressed with a video player like KMPlayer and look at media/file info, it should say exactly what codec format the video has.

I mean, seriously, anybody even paying for programs nowadays? Lol.
Plus I wouldn't give a single <profanity removed> about it. In Estonia it's allowed to download, but uploading is punishable.

Please don't use profanity in your posts.

MSI Afterburner works indeed fine. I tested this myself a while ago (here is the resulting video)

I did not use any video editing software, but rather uploaded the recording directly to youtube. It took a long time but worked flawlessly.

I use Fraps, then reform the vide so its not 3GB, more like 350MB.
Fraps costs money, but surely u can get it 4free.
then use:

This is free.

Fraps and Overwolf are very CPU hungry and will lag a lot of PCs, I use Playclaw, its not free either though.
