Someone records with Xfire, sends it to you with MSN for example, and you decide to watch it, but can't, because you need Xfire installed!


pointless since they got xifre, it will be on their profile so you can watch it there

i read that xfire compresses/encodes as it records so it leaves much tidier smaller files but consumes more resources to do it. since it has to encode the raw video as fraps does as the first step anyway which is a lot of disk writing so it makes the game chug. Would be fine probably if you have another disk to write to that isnt the same one you use as page file or OS drive. fraps, and this excellent how-to, FTW.

It doesn't matter what the file extension is~

All that matters is the codec used to encode, because only that codec can decode it. XFire has their own, aswell has Fraps, and the codec only gets on your computer when you install either of them~
