Replays Reintroduced As Highlights
  • Replays, as previously used and introduced on Raptr, are now called highlights; consisting of a short clip that was captured after the event has happened
  • The term: Replays, now refer to auto-recorded videos that capture your entire gaming session
  • These recordings happen for supported (auto-detected) and unsupported (non-auto-detected) games
  • In attempts to save hard drive space, replays will be auto-managed and deleted upon filling up a certain amount of space  
                The set amount of space can be adjusted in preferences options
                This will not impact manually saved videos; highlights, manual records, or saved clips

  • Added a game tag field that is either auto completed based on our detection, or able to be filled out by the user for an auto-detected game
  • Default length for highlights has been set to 20 seconds (but only updates for new users, so if you’ve been using 30 seconds it will stay 30 seconds)
  • The ‘Edit Clip’ button broke up it’s relationship with the ‘Share Clip’ button, but they are still roommates. As such, we split the two buttons apart on the preview pane, which now allows for easy access to edit
