    Title says it all, my plan was too record it with fraps and compress it with Movie maker.
    Is there a simpler/easier way?
  2. Some people post their stream session to youtube. I dunno if that saves the effort or if they're just FRAPSing it at the same time and doing what you mentioned doing on top of Twitch.

    If you stream and put it on youTube, you have Fraps/DxTory/Shadowplay/Afterburner/Mirillis running at the same time as streaming requires you to heavily encode the video before sending to the streaming service.

    It depends on the type of content you want to make (commentary / no commentary; live commentary / post commentary; raw footage / edited footage ....) but basically:

    * Record your gameplay
    * Edit the footage
    * Encode
    * Upload to youTube

    Recording - if your PC is beafy enough, you can record while driving.
    If you barely can hold 30 FPS while driving, you should think about recording the replay rather than the actual gameplay.
    Which program you use depends on taste and system performance.
    Haven't touched Fraps in a long time, but DxTory used to have way less performance impact than Fraps, is way more customizable and records seperate audio streams.

    Editing footage - you don't want to do that in Movie Maker (if you mean the thing that comes with Windows)
    There are quite some freeware editors out there, but i personally recommend getting Sony Movie Studio Platinum. It features all the good stuff Sony Vegas has except advanced compositing modes and advanced masking options but at a very small price.

    Encode - google tells you what youTube loves:
    To my understanding Windows Movie Maker doesn't even give you control over the encoding settings?

    Upload - Fire and forget :)

    If you have further questions, i will try to answer them.
