Record game clips with Game DVR

Game DVR lets you capture gameplay video clips that you can then edit in Upload Studio and share.

How to capture the previous 30 seconds of gameplay

Did something amazing just happen? You can immediately capture the past 30 seconds of gameplay at any time.

If you’re using the Kinect sensor, say "Xbox, record that!" Or, if you're using Cortana with Kinect or a headset, say "Hey Cortana, record that!".

To record using a controller, double-tap the Xbox button  and then press the X button .

How to make a clip of a specific length

You can launch the Upload app from Games & Apps to make recordings of a specific length. Here’s how:

  1. Start the game you want to record from.

      • Record last 1 minute
      • Record last 3 minutes
      • Record last 5 minutes
    2. Start recording: Record up to 5 minutes of what you’re about to do in the game. Select Start recording. To stop, press the Xbox button , the View button , and then select Stop recording when you’re done.
