The second program that we can make use of is the Hypercam. This is a well known screen recorder that can also use as game recording software to capture those special sequences during our Minecraft game play. There are quite few video clips that were shared online using this program that shows how it works. And honestly, it seems to be working just fine.
However, there are some drawbacks that raised some concerns from many users. These flaws include a limited output format which is AVI, it constantly lags the computer, and does not have the capability of recording webcam. Aside from these, users are also complaining about the bunch of adware that are installed together with the program that creates a malware crap. And the issue that is raised a lot of concern is the fact the unregistered version of the tool has an Unregistered Version watermark at the top left corner of the platform.
Another program that can serve as a Minecraft screen recorder is Bandicam. It is widely used as a screen recorder and a gameplay recorder. It allows users to record video sequences when playing the game. All sounds from game can be recorded perfectly without loss. Besides, AVI and MP4 formats are supported when you publish the file.

As an overall conclusion, I can definitely say that game play recording such as Minecraft can be done easily using the proper tools necessary for screen recording. Moreover, the speed of the screen recording during game play can be influenced by the computer itself. This is because old computer has a lesser RAM memory that can slow the process. In this case it is safer to use a lite program such as Apowersoft Screen Recorder Pro.
