Roblox, like any game, can sometimes have moments that you want to share with others, may that be your friends, family, or random people on the internet. Trust us. We wish we had recorded all the sick no scopes we hit in No-scope arcade.

Fortunately, there are multiple ways to record your Roblox gameplay, both for a PC and for mobile.

Keep in mind that the resolution of your recorded video will not go higher than the resolution of your game. If you feel like it’s too low and you don’t know how to change it, then, fortunately, we already have a guide on how to change the resolution on Roblox.

Recording Roblox Gameplay on a PC

If you're looking to record Roblox gameplay on a PC, there are three leading methods depending on what you want to use for recording. One of them, however, can only be used if your PC has Windows 10 or 11 installed.

Method 1: Using the Built-in Screen Recorder for Roblox

The first and easiest method is simply using the built-in screen recorder that comes with Roblox. To record Roblox gameplay this way, you'll have to

First, boot up Roblox and load in any game. If you aren’t able to join a game, then read our guide on what to do when unable to join Roblox.

  1. Click the Roblox icon on the upper left corner, which will pause the game.

  2. You'll see five subheadings on your screen (Players, settings, report, help, and record). Click on the 'Record' one to bring up two options for you to choose from. You could either take a normal screenshot or click on the screen recording button to start recording.

  3. You'll know you're in recording mode, as there will be a red outline surrounding your entire screen telling you your gameplay is being recorded.

While this method is the easiest, as everyone can do it, there are certain cons. The first and most apparent is that the video recording quality leaves a lot to be desired, as the other methods we'll be showing are much better in that regard. For example, this built-in recorder Roblox provides its players with records in only 15-20 fps with 480 resolution.

Additionally, this recorder is limited when it comes to recording options. You can't include your voice while recording, and you can't display a webcam. However, sharing your recorded gameplay video becomes easy if you link your YouTube account.
