    A week ago, I spent a whole night trying to find a way to record PPSSPP program for the 3 Project DIVA games that are on the PSP. Such as game capture and on screen recording. I tried recording with the OBS but it didn't work well. I tried many other free softwears but the result wasn't the same picture or sound as when you're not recording. And when I thought I found it, there was a watermark. My computer is a HP laptop with windows 10. So if someone could please make suggestions for what I need to nicely record the PPSSPP program for the 3 PSP games, I'd appreciate it. Thank you ^__^

    With OBS: how it's looks like that you say "it didn't work well"? I think it's the best program for such work, so may be you just need to find best options for emulator, because this what I have here:
    Before I didn't use PPSSPP, but I try to use it with original settings and do not really like this kind of gameplay, because big input lag, original 30 fps and everything with it, but I have, may be, not so poor PC, core i5-9400, GTX 1060 6GB, 16GB DDR-4000..
    But there is no problems with OBS, so the only conclusion I can make that you have not so powerful notebook for this, because I have notebook too and then I use OBS there too - it use CPU for recording (and emulator too use it), but PC use graphics card when recording video (but basically it use something like 35% of CPU even at idle speed, even when not in use), so there is much more space for emulator..

    Well, first of all, what I ment by 'didn't work well' is that their's static in the sound. And the picture's still nicely clear but not running smoothly. My video here is to show the problem. Anyway, I knew OBS was the one to use, it's just what my video shows from using OBS that I need help here. I know about a computers CPU and graphic card. But unless we're talking about the PPSSPP program, what emulator do you have for recording? Because there's a hardwear and softwear type, and I would perfer the softwear kind. And about the graphic card, it's because I'm on a laptop that I don't want to take it apart. Not to mention spend so much money for a better one. So if the problem comes from the laptop itself, I'd get myself a softwear for game recording.

    It really looks like lack of power of your laptop for this kind of tasks, because as I understand, when you not recording - it works well, you can play, but when you start recording - it starts looks like you show. That's really shows that emulator is does not cope with it's task because lack of power because recording and encoding video consumes significant part of processor time and there is nothing left for the emulator. There is nothing to recommend then 1st) may be play and record on more powerful computer (may be with powerful CPU and discrete GPU) 2nd) to put task of recording to another device, so you have may be some monitor output and you send signal from it to some card for video-capture and it will record video for you freeing your laptop from this task and may be 3rd) try to find better settings for emulator and OBS too to set their less load to your PC. I cannot say now for sure what settings you need to put, maybe some manuals you can find somewhere in internet about detailed PPSSPP settings, but OBS and other video-capturing programs are very demanding on resources, so I really do not know what exactly settings there can be set to make it load laptop less.
    So you need to thing something about that, what is better for you :)

    Hello! Here are the options I have tried:

    1) Use the integrated PPSSPP recorder: just go to Settings=>Controls=>Control Mapping and assign a button to the option "Audio / Video recording", then during the game press that button to start/stop the recording or go to Settings=>System and check the "Record Display" and "Record Audio" options to start/stop the recording as soon as the game starts...

    The problem: it records at 60fps and the game works only at 30fps therefore there could be visual defects...

    It also records the audio separately from the video, both without compression but even if the game runs slow what you have recorded will be played at a normal speed as if you had recorded the game at full speed, although I think that the graphic problems could be solved with a 60fps patch...

    Oh, and all the videos you record with the emu are always recorded at 60fps without exception, the resolution will be the same as the rendering, not the window, and it does not record the messages of the Emu (OSD I think is call...)

    2) Use the Windows 10 Xbox App: Press Super + G to open the game panel to see the available options, or press Super+ALT+R to start recording... Note: Super is the Windows button ('^^) Go to Windows 10 settings and in the "Games" option, you can configure it

    The problem: If your GPU does not have hardware accelerated video (Intel QuickSync, Nvidia NVENC, AMD AMF...) this option will be disabled, also if your computer is slow it may slow down the game... although if your computer is fast this works perfect

    3) Use paid applications: I use Movavi Video Suite, its recorder works well (I usually record my screen with this and it works fine even though my computer is a bit slow...)

    The problem: You have to buy the license or watermarks appear in the recorded video...


    By the way, I use a Toshiba with an Intel i5-2410M and Intel HD 3000 graphics with the Windows Update driver (9.17.10.4459) that I configured to enable Quicksync and the truth is that the Xbox app records quite well and does not slow down the computer when playing the PD's at x3 rendering resolution in fullscreen mode...

    Sorry for the late response. I was messing with my phone the last couple days, haha. Anyway, I've looked at what both of you have said, and right now I really think it's what steelpuxnastik said about my computer not being powerful enough. Yes, everything's fine when playing, but bad when recording. And that to do this I'm going to have to get a licensed program. But first, I tried what Wyrdgirn said about the integrated PPSSPP recorder, and yes there were visual defects. So I'm working on finding a 60fps patch for it.

    On some occasions I had managed to record the videos correctly using the PPSSPP itself but I don't know if it's because of the version or the architecture, what I can tell you is that the filters and the improvements (overscaling, hardware transform, etc... ) could affect too.

    I do not know of any 60fps patch but I know of someone who had it but I have not been able to contact him anymore...

    You can also try using the Interpreter core instead of the Dynamic one, I haven't tried it but maybe a much more exact emulation will produce much better recordings.

    Cheers =D
