If video games are your thing, and you want to share your exploits and advice with others or perhaps teach them something, why not make your own YouTube gaming video?

Whether you’re explaining how to find a settlement on Durotar in World of Warcraft, battling the Archadian Empire in Final Fantasy, or simply providing some tips in Clash of Clans, chances are good that lots of people are looking for these kinds of tips and more on YouTube.

What’s a gaming video without a real example from the game? Boring. So you want to be able to capture the action using a screen capture program. The simplest way is to have your game loaded on a computer rather than on a gaming system.

Here are a few choices that are inexpensive and work pretty well:

  • ScreenFlow: This program allows you to record your computer screen and has a variety of features, including callouts, text captions, and much more.
  • Setapp: Allows you to capture still images, audio, and video using a few keystrokes on your Macintosh computer.
  • QuickTime Player: If you have a robust computer, you can capture your screen with your Mac using QuickTime Player.
  • Debut Video Capture: Works on both Mac and Windows computers and lets you record video (including streaming video) on your computer screen, as shown.
