There must be people who love playing games, such as "Call of Duty", "Medal of Honor" or "Return to Castle Wolfenstein", to name a few. Some of them might be interested in recording their victory moments and uploading them to YouTube. Therefore, under these circumstances, a software that can be used to record their fighting moments with high-quality output will be of great significance. And today, I am going to recommend top 4 useful recorders for recording gameplays for uploading to YouTube.
