PlayClaw enables gamers to take screenshots and capture HD-quality video along with audio as they play a computer game to replay their most exciting gaming moment later, share them on YouTube, or post to a blog. Taking full advantage of modern multi-core processors and lean coding, PlayClaw ensures the highest quality video recording, without slowdowns and reduction of frames in the output. Another important specialty of the program is support for Teamspeak and Ventrilo overlays, allowing gamers to see who’s speaking at the moment, which is rather useful in multiplayer games. Overlays are compatible with the newest versions of Windows and graphic engines, letting gamers, for example, see overlays on computers driven by Windows 7 with modern DirectX 11 graphics. PlayClaw can also display the frames per second and overlay the FPS value onto screen shots which can be used for performing benchmarks. The placement of the FPS counter can be customized or disabled altogether.
