MineVideo brings in-game video recording to the Minecraft world. This mod seeks to succeed where other Minecraft video recording software has failed. When running Fraps, for example, Minecraft’s framerates often dip to unacceptably low levels. To make matters worse, the video files are often very large and will need to be compressed before sharing.

MineVideo 1.6 is an attempt to solve all of these problems. By simply pressing ‘F4’, players can easily record everything that’s going on in their Minecraft world. While the MineVideo mod does feature hefty system requirements, the video files it creates are small enough to upload to YouTube.

After pressing ‘F4’, players will hear a distinctive ‘plop’ sound, which means that the recording has started. As soon as F4 is pressed once again, the recording will end. Every video file will end up in .avi or .mp4 format inside the .minecraft/videos folder, making them easy to access and upload to YouTube.

Using MineVideo, players can also press F6 to discover a menu where they can change a number of different settings related to the mod. Players can change the video format from .avi to .mp4 (and others), and they can increase or decrease the framerate to whichever number they want. In terms of audio settings, players can change the sample rate as well as the format in which audio is saved (.wav by default).

If you would rather not record video in Minecraft world, but only want to record audio, then MineVideo has that ability. Simply press F6 and find the ‘Audio Recording’ toggle button.

The main drawback of MineVideo is figuring out if your system can handle it. The mod creator has outlined a list of recommended system settings in the official forum thread for the mod:

For laptops users: A minimum of 4GB of DDR3 RAM (recommended 6GB or more) as well as an Intel Core i5-2430M processor and a Nvidia 400M GPU or above.

For desktop users: A minimum of 3GB of DDR3 RAM, an Intel Core i5-2000 CPU, and an Nvidia 500 series or higher.

Keep in mind that those are the minimum system requirements. The recommended system requirements are even higher than that.

The MineVideo mod is simple but effective. If your computer can handle the mod’s intense system requirements, then MineVideo is an easy way to share your Minecraft experiences with others. Whether you’re uploading mod videos to YouTube or simply showing your friend some Minecraft secrets, MineVideo makes sharing Minecraft videos as easy as possible.
