How to Record Gameplay on PS4

Playing alone is very good, but often better than a shared experience. Even if you play alone, you can share the highlights of your game with your friends by posting video clips of your favourite moments on social media. Luckily, the PS4 has built-in video recording capabilities for these kinds of things.

Not only can you start recording to capture the game as it starts, but the PS4 always records the last 15 minutes of the game, so it’s easy to save a great moment that just happened.

How do I Record Gameplay on the PS4?

  • Start playing. To get started, simply launch the game you want to capture. Remember that you can’t currently share video clips or the PS4 menu interface.
  • Once the game is loaded, play until you come across something cool. The PS4 automatically saves the recordings of the last 15 minutes of the game.
  • Use the “Share” button. Click the “Share” button on your controller when you’re ready to edit and share your clip. This will automatically open the options for uploading videos or screenshots. Click on “Upload Video”.
  • You will see a selection of recently recorded PS4 clips. Note that they don’t have to be 15 minutes long; each time you click the “Share” button, the PS4 will stop recording and start again. Select the video that contains the part of the game you want to share.

The desktop.ini file can technically be deleted from any directory, although this is not recommended.
