FRAPS - Updated

Gotta love fraps.


Ventrilo & TeamSpeak users have long wanted a way to record their microphone and speakers at the same time. For Windows 7 and Vista we've added realtime sound mixing to our video recording so you can now capture both sides of the conversation!

I've never had a problem recording TS chat plus game sounds.... so not sure what that's about about.

They do seem to be releasing stuff "every five minutes" don't they (hence why I'm not starting a new thread each time :P)

I would hope they do test it thoroughly before release on a few different systems and specs

It's a bit of a no win situation for them though, do they release fixes as they find them or hang on to them and release all together in a big update once a month for example

I know I'd rather get any fixes straight away
