How to provide video evidence

Recording and Sharing Videos for Support Tickets

Below you will find various ways for recording and submitting videos with your support tickets.  Often, these videos are required by Customer Support and the Enforcement Team to take action on your requests.


Windows 10 Game Bar

Windows 10 has a built-in video capture tool called “Game Bar”.

This is the easiest way to capture videos if you don't want to install other programs. 

Getting Set Up

Check if the Game Bar is active by pressing WIN +G


 If the shortcut doesn’t work, you must activate the Game Bar in your Windows Settings first. 

To do this go to Settings → Gaming → Game Bar and activate it there. 


While you are in the settings also go to the captures heading on the left and change/ adjust some settings. 

These settings are best to use to deliver good videos for the Enforcement and Support Team. Be sure to test the options since some options can affect your game performance.


Make sure you enable “Background recording” as this allows you to always have the last x minutes ready to be saved in case an incident happens.  

You can also change the time of how far back this recording should go. We recommend 5-10 minutes as it will show enough evidence of the incident while not taking up too much storage space.

It’s important to note the location of the videos will be saved in.  You may want to change the location to another drive depending on your system setup.

Sending A Video

Once an incident occurs in game you can now press WIN+G and then press this button on the “Capture” box


Alternatively, you can simply press WIN+ALT+G and the same action will be triggered. 

This will save the last x (the time you set it to) minutes to the save location you set. From there you can then upload it to Youtube.  

Make sure you upload your video as unlisted and share the link to it in the report. This way no other user can see the video unless you send them the link.

Nvidia Instant Replay / Shadow Play ™ 

Nvidia has a similar feature in their Geforce Experience. This feature will not  impact your game performance like the Windows 10 Game Bar.. 

In order to use this feature you need to check that you have a compatible Nvidia graphics card  and have the above mentioned Geforce Experience installed. 

Getting Set Up

Open the Geforce Experience and enable the In-Game Overlay by clicking on the gear icon and then scroll through the general settings 


Then click on the settings button 

Navigate to the “Recordings” section to specify where temporary and saved video files are stored.

Then navigate to the “Video-capture” section

Select Instant-Replay length to 5 minutes the Quality to High and select the resolution and video frame rate (use at least 1080p and 30fps)


Once you are done click the “Done” or “Save” button on the right 

You should come to a overview screen looking like this 


Click on Instant Replay and Turn it on.

From now on your Graphics card will always have the last 5 minutes of your gameplay saved.

Sending A Video

Once an incident happens that you want to capture and save press ALT+Z to open the overlay pressing the save button on Instant Replay or by using the default Hotkey ALT+F10

After you have saved a clip you can view and edit the length in the gallery to then upload it to Youtube. In order for this functionality to work, you will need to log into your account from the overlay. If the upload does not work you can still upload the video file by navigating to the specified folder and upload it from there to Youtube manually.

Make sure that you select upload as unlisted video in both cases and share the link to it in the report. This way no other user can see the video unless you send them the link.
