Especially for some famous gamers whose videos attract numerous LoL fans. That’s really a cool thing to have so many congenial fans through the gameplay video. Frankly speaking, I am also addicted to playing LOL and adore recording my own LOL gameplay videos.

But I wonder how your guys record your gameplay videos. Of course LOL Replay can record all your League of Legends Matches so that you are able to review statistics from all your past matches. But sometimes, LOL Replay isn't really a stable program, which is not so easy to operate. Thus you might fail to record or get a broken replay video because of some bugs. Actually, I myself have ever come across such situations but finally found an alternative recording software to figure it out.
