Archiving from ESPN3

Has anyone found a good way to save games you've done on ESPN3 or other TV? And a way to save it in a form that's editable ? Thanks

Depending on how your ESPN3 production is produced I have a couple different suggestions.

If you are at a school that is doing the production you may ask if you can connect a drive and have a "dirty" program feed saved to it if possible. Every situation is different. Since E3 shows archive to the cloud, most schools dont bother to actually record a full program. As you might imagine, that would take up a lot of space locally. I would suggest getting a 2 TB drive and and also some personal cloud storage space.

If you are working for a truck it may be a lot easier. They tend to record the full program.

Also keep in mind you can get access to the direct link that normally stays active like a year. Make sure you get the direct link though.

Play it back on your computer and record it using Screenflow or Camtasia.

The recording will take real time to do but it will be HD.

This is also an option. Just be aware that you are capturing a live stream so you are at the mercy of your internet connection at that point. Would recommend a wired connection for sure. You may also get the glitches that happen from time to time on E3.

Some free screen capture software companies also put a small burn in you recordings. If you plan to capture a lot of recordings doing the paid option will often take that burn logo away.

Great call. Definitely use an Ethernet connection, if available, to reduce the chances of buffering issues. With Ethernet, you'll likely have no issues. You're also right on about not using the free versions if you don't want the watermark.

One additional note on the free versions is that some are limited to a certain amount of time. Two hours for example. There are a ton of screen capture options available now a days with video game streaming being such a major thing.
