I am currently uploading my video and I used Windows Live Movie Maker. Let us see how the quality is compared to VirtualDub. The file was 320Mb or something and I had the option to just select where to upoload to in Movie Maker and could decide which screen size i wanted and all sorts of net stuff. Hopefully it will look allright.
Brian would you please test to see if I am right about the 2 core vs 4 core thing or not?
Will do Poul. I am just migrating the game PC's system to larger drives and changing the RAID setup.
I was having issues with the RAID 10 array, (4x 500Gb Seagate drives) every time The Run froze the PC up (about twice a week) I would have to rebuild and do error checks (3 to 4 hours) on the array so I have taken the opportunity to stick a pair of TB drives in and just do a RAID 1.
This is a 10 hour operation first doing the clone and then migrating the clone to the RAID 1. Got +- 5 hours to go.
I am also upgrading the sound card to an Asus Xonar D2X to try and resolve the video sound synch problem which according to the forums is common with Fraps and Creative Audigy cards
Once Brad is up I will do a test on his Dual Core machine though.
Here is the video of my run. Notice how I am 0.23 sec ahead of Aaron´s time, when I simply am to focused on looking at the time rather than the traffic, but I am lucky it did not hurt too much hitting that AI traffic car. Would had been hard to accept if I had not beaten his time leading that close to the finish line - or worse yet crashed and reset.
Brian I really have to thank you by suggesting to use Windows Movie Maker. The video looks just as good as if I had used VirtualDub.
Hey guys, i did some testing last night with several things. I tried Windows Movie Maker first, i guess im not smart enough to figure it out, all i get is a black screen, but i get sound? I see all the clips on the right when i import videos, but the preview display on the left is always black. I ran a few more races and tried using those videos, but always the same. Any ideas? I also tried using MSI Afterburner to capture and it is more demanding than Fraps, recording at half screen, i could only get 15-20 fps which was almost impossible to drive. Also, the video was even more out of sync with the time, i ran a high 2:26 and the video time after vitualdub was 2:55. I then went back to Fraps and tried recording to my external hard drive, no difference at all than recording to my HDD drive. In fact, the only video with the correct time is the original video that i captured of 2:25.57. I have spent enough time trying to figure this out, now ill just wait to upgrade my PC.
Thanks Poul and Brian for all your help and great time Poul!

I figured out how to upload and uploaded a video last night, but i deleted it because it had no picture, just sound, i also googled "black screen in movie maker" and alot of poeple have the same problem.
This shit of having problems with computers is starting to get old..
OK Aaron, we need Brians help to tell how his screen looks like. I never did this before, so I have no Idea on how it should look like. Maybe it is because we use different settings in FRAPS? I record set to 50 fps and full-size.
CmdrTomalak (PC/PS3/PS4): Yep. Dead. Dead. Dead... Somebody should put it out of its misery. It all started waaaaaay back when Most Wanted came out and we all met on the EA forums and decided to branch out on our own. Sad way to go...

Tonnzzaah (PC/360/PS4): And unfortunately, the way Need For Speed games were for quite long time didn't help this place at all, for starters, I dropped off from NFS games completely. I did get both Shifts, Hot Pursuit (2010) and later Rivals, but they weren't enough...

Chandrian: I don't know how many of you know, but for a while, NFS World has worked very well on a public online server (probably a month or more since it became more stable), containing over 150k registered players.

Chandrian: The sync is now allowing races with more than 2 players, and pretty much all original NFSW features are working. The best part is that everything is available for in-game cash on this server.

Chandrian: You have to start with a new driver profile, but the progression isn't that hard. If you wanna play NFSW online again, then I advise downloading the launcher of this online server and also joining this Discord server:
