In 2011, Minecraft was released to tremendous acclaim from critics and gamers alike. This sandbox game allows users to roam around a block-based environment, building and destroying whatever they choose. Much of its success is owed to its unique and totally immersive gameplay that is unlike anything else on the market. The open-world framework of this game allows players unfettered access to their own universe, where they can discover, develop, and experiment with any number of outcomes.

You can improve your play, identify areas for improvement, and track your progress as a player over time by recording your Minecraft sessions and watching them later. Streaming your games live or posting them to sites like YouTube or Twitch can also help you acquire a following in the Minecraft community and beyond. Moreover, recording your Minecraft sessions is a fantastic way to reflect on your experiences and share them with others. Here’s how you can record Minecraft with Insights Capture:

Step 1

To begin, download gaming recorder Insights Capture, install it, then fine-tune the video settings until you have the perfect recording for your Minecraft action. On the settings panel, you can configure the hotkeys as well.


Step 2

Launch Minecraft, and a window titled “Insights Capture Is Active” will appear in the upper right corner of your screen.

Step 3

Insights Capture’s clip recorder has three alternative game capture methods:

  • To start recording, use the shortcut key (F7 by default), then press it again to stop. You can create your own shortcut key in the settings panel.
  • There is also the automatic detection feature — as the game starts, the recording begins automatically and ends when the game is closed.
  • You can record a specific amount of time from your game and rewatch it later using Instant Replay. F6 is the shortcut for this function, and the length of time a replay is saved can be adjusted. You can also access this feature from the Settings menu under Recording > Enable Instant Replay. This feature is particularly useful for capturing specific moments instead of the whole gameplay.

Step 4

The overlay in the upper right corner will notify when the recording has started. The recording session can be started or stopped by simply hitting the Start/Stop recording hotkey.

Step 5

The most recent recording you’ve saved will be played back when you use the Alt + H shortcut to open Insights Capture. After you’ve completed playing, you’ll be automatically redirected to the Insights Capture dashboard, where you can review your recordings and track your progress.
