Raptr seems to be gaining in popularity. Total playtime recorded by the online service was up 15% month-over-month, from May to June. The software is made up of a few features that are designed to make the lives of PC gamers easier and better, ranging from optimizing game settings to recording gameplay. If you have used a recent version of GeForce Experience, then you probably have a good idea of what Raptr does.
Today, Raptr has announced a new, major update. The version's headlining feature is hardware accelerated video recording, and streaming, for both AMD and NVIDIA GPUs. Raptr claims that their method leads to basically no performance lost, regardless of which GPU vendor is used. Up to 20 minutes of previous gameplay can be recorded after it happened and video of unlimited length can be streamed on demand.
Notice the recording overlay in the top left.
The other, major feature of this version is enhanced sharing of said videos. They can be uploaded to Raptr.com and shared to Facebook and Twitter, complete with hashtags (#BecauseYolo?)

Update is buggy as hell. Windows refused to boot after installing it. Start-up repair didn’t work either. Nor did SFC and even a diskcheck wouldn’t run past 12%. Had to boot into safe mode and uninstall it to get back into windows.

Have they fixed it so that uninstalling Raptr actually uninstalls Raptr? I’ve cleaned viruses out of customer systems that were easier to remove than this app.

Lol not sure about that but a couple of passes with Ccleaner after going through the uninstaller should do it

I’ve been using shadowplay, but I also run raptr, and the overlay makes things a lot easier. If it has as little impact as it claims, I’ll be interested especially the streaming aspect.

Worth a try twitch streaming on my 780 with shadowplay kills the fps.

Does this mean I can get points for free WoW months, even though I use Nvidia?
