The Best Methods Of Recording Gameplay and Clips In Valheim

Of course, since there are many other programs we couldn't include, we decided to mention them in the section at the bottom of this article.

If you'd like to learn more about gameplay capturing, we'll also show you how to record World Of Warcraft gameplay or how to record Halo Infinite gameplay

Method #1: Nvidia GeForce Experience

Here's how you can record Valheim gameplay through GeForce Experience:

Unfortunately, you will need to register an Nvidia account to use this program.
  1. First, download the latest version of GeForce Experience from the official website of Nvidia, and once you install it, the program will automatically run.
  2. Click on the settings cog icon found in the upper corner of the main menu.
  3. Select the gray button to enable "In-game overlay."
  4. Finally, select "Settings" under the "In-game overlay."
There are also three preset profiles here which you can use to change video settings easily.

You can leave all these settings on default, as they are preset according to your GPU's power. However, if you decide to change any settings, you'll be able to adjust audio/video settings, default storage folder, keyboard hotkeys, and much more.

While in Valheim, press Alt + F9 to record videos (manually) or Alt + F10 to record clips, and you'll find these Valheim videos and clips in the C:\Users\<Username>\Videos folder.

Method #2: Radeon ReLive

The second method in our choice used for recording Valheim gameplay is Radeon ReLive, and here's how you can use this program:

The user interface of Radeon ReLive is top-notch.
  1. Download the current version of the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition from the official source, and then you'll be prompted to restart your PC.
  2. After doing so, select the ReLive tab in the AMD Radeon Settings.
  3. Finally, enable the ReLive function by ticking the button.
Some of these options can't be found elsewhere.

The reason why you had to restart your PC before using this program is so it can automatically configure video settings for you and save you some time, that's all.

That means you won't need to configure anything, and you can start recording Valheim gameplay straight away.

However, before you do that, make sure to enable "Instant Replay," "Instant Gif," and "In-game Replay" functions, which can be pretty useful when recording Valheim gameplay.

Then, while in the game, press Ctrl + Shift + R hotkey to begin recording, and you'll find the Valheim clips and videos stored in the C:\Users\<Username>\Videos\Radeon ReLive folder.

Method #3: Open Broadcaster Software

Our final method for this article is the OBS (Open Broadcaster Software), which you can learn how to use if you follow these steps:

Please take our advice and use the auto-configuration wizard.
  1. Visit the OBS official website and download the program's latest version there, and once you run it, you'll receive the auto-configuration wizard prompt, which can configure everything for you in just three clicks!
  2. Once you're in the main menu, click on the + icon under the "Sources" tab.
  3. Finally, click on the "Game Capture" option, write anything in the field, and confirm it.
A powerful program for streaming and gameplay recording.

For those unfamiliar with the OBS, this program can also be used for streaming Valheim (and other games, for that matter) on Twitch, YouTube Gaming, Trovo, and various other platforms.

If you need to change options like video, audio, default video storage folder, or keyboard hotkeys at any point, click on the "File" then choose "Settings."

Pro tip: Make sure to configure the keyboard hotkey for recording, or you would need to go Alt + Tab each time you wish to record Valheim. Once you're ready to finally record Valheim gameplay videos and clips, press down the previously configured keyboard hotkey or click on the "Start Recording" from the main menu of OBS.

You'll find Valheim videos and clips stored in the C:\Users\<Username>\Videos folder, which you can also change to any folder you want.
