How to record Steam game for free?

Many Steam game players just like me, are fond of sharing their game tricks or achievements with others. But it is really hard to find a suitable application that allows me to record a satisfying video. Some videos are lag included and other videos may have watermark. For sharing an easy game video, I even record it for nearly ten times, but the video turns out to be quite disappointing. To solve the problem, I have asked the question on various forums. Finally, I find a feasible tool and hope you guys can also make use of it for sharing game tricks.

For those who want to record Steam game videos, ShowMore is absolutely a wise choice. It is a free application which can be activated directly on webpage. When I use it, it will record the game window on my screen as well as my voice from microphone. Moreover, web camera can be added to the screen, too. Just one time playing, I can produce a video and gain others appreciation. This is really awesome. One pleasant thing is that I can record as long as I want and here are steps about how I do it.



1. Navigate to its webpage and press "Start Recording" button. (For the first-time visit, it will ask to download a launcher to activate the application.)
2. On seeing the interface, preset the settings like hotkeys for recording and mouse animation. Choose one output format and audio resource from multiple options.
3. Then get ready for recording and start by clicking "REC" button. During recording, I can add different captions to my video. It is quite interesting.
4. At the time to stop recording, just click pause button. Choose to go on or start over. It will play the video first and I can check the effect then.
5. Click to save file into video format or GIF. By the way, I can also upload my file to YouTube and other similar websites.

No worry about watermark or lags and video will be published in great high quality. That is what I want, exactly.

Im trying to set up the game counter strike source but when I download it and click on it it brings me to a website called steam and doesnt let me play?


You need a steam account, all you have to do is sign up with Steam (which is free). However, if you have downloaded this game, chances are it may not work because majority of steam users actually download their games via steam (they pay using a credit card, and are then able to download a fully certified legal game).
I would suggest signing up for a Steam account and trying to play. If that doesn't work, there are a few ways you can by pass it.
ONLY playing LAN games is one. (Or in this case, pretending to only play LAN games.)
You can do this by:
1. Downloading Garena, Hamachi or Leaf. These are programs that let you play LAN games. (Supposed LAN games, because actually you're playing internationally, just like if you were on a console, but you are tricking the PC to thinking it's a LAN game, as well as fooling the game itself.) I would suggest downloading Garena as it works really well and has the major mainstream PC games. (Plus it is easy to use.)
Just go here:
http://www.en.garena.com/main/

They will give you instructions on how to download Garena, create an account, as well as other information you need.
Hope this helps!
