Everyone loves Minecraft, regardless of age, from kids to seniors. Some people like to explore the game, looking for resources and running from creepers, while others prefer to build great structures like the Taj Mahal or the Eiffel Tower, and some concentrate on their own houses, farms, and equipment. Humorous graphics make the game even more engaging, and you can even add your own mods!
If you’ve ever played Minecraft, you know you can do almost anything there. This square world lies before you, and you can change it in the best way. Build the tallest skyscraper? Construct a creeper farm and get loads of gunpowder? Show off your achievements! Try this Minecraft recorder software and make a video for YouTube or other social networks. You’ll see your subscriber numbers increase dramatically. You can use different programs: recording your screen is easy with OBS or with Shadowplay, but we recommend Gecata by Movavi. Just a few clicks – and the whole internet will be able to watch you playing and comment on your gameplay. Here’s how to record Minecraft videos with Movavi.
Download and Install the Software
Get Gecata by clicking the link on this page. Double-click the installation file and follow the on-screen instructions. Adjust the installation options if necessary. When the process is complete, run the software. Please note: Gecata is designed to work with the Windows 10 version of the game.
Specify the Settings
In the main program window, you’ll need to change some options. First, in the Capture mode drop-down menu, choose Desktop – this mode is for games that are running in window mode. Then switch on your microphone and (optionally) your webcam by just clicking the corresponding icons. They’ll be highlighted in green. You’re ready to rock!
To start the recording, click the red REC button in Gecata. The software will run in the background and won’t interrupt your play. Below the REC button, you will see the Screenshot and Pause buttons, and also the amount of space remaining on your hard drive, estimated future video file size, and video duration. Launch Minecraft and start playing.
Gecata won’t be visible during your gameplay, so when you’re in-game, it’s easier to use hotkeys: F10 to start or stop recording, F9 to pause or resume, F8 to take a screenshot, or F11 to display an overlay with the recording data.
We recommend you record the whole gameplay session to be sure you don’t miss something important or just funny. So, after you exit the game, turn off the recording process by clicking the green Stop button. Click the Folder icon to access the folder where your files are saved. Now you can watch your videos and upload them to your YouTube channel, another video service, or social networks.
Now you know how to record Minecraft on PC with voice. Share your videos and gather your likes!
