We’ve spent the last 6 months working on a better and more performant recorder. There were many bugs and many bug-fixes. But alas, today is the day we release it to the world! It took _a lot_ of blood, sweat, and tears — and I mean a lot of tears. But now Medal is, as the great Kanye West once said, harder, better, faster, stronger.
Clip Quality + Length
We are so happy to announce that we now offer Full HD for clips!
You read that right. 1920x1080. FULL. HD.
Video quality can now go as high as 1080p 60fps 20mb/s.
Just head on over to Settings > Clips, and select “1080p”!
Also introducing auto quality selection.
- Choose your “Resolution” and we’ll automatically select the best bitrate for you! For Example, Choose “FullHD” and Medal will preselect 15M Bitrate!
Watching your friends clips in the activity feed is smoother than ever.
Oh, and one more thing: clipping is now extended to two minutes.
- Processing will happen instantaneously
YUP. We went there.
Controller Support 🎮
Prefer playing with a controller? No problem!
Medal now fully supports both PS4 and Xbox controllers.
Go to Settings > Clips, and choose your hotkey now!
Better OpenGL support
- Roblox, Minecraft, Osu! and many others will record better than ever!
Bug Fixes 🐛
We’ve squashed so many bugs in the last 6 months that we’ve endangered at least 3 species. Here are just a few:
- One of the bugs that lead us to rebuild our recorder was the dreaded speedup bug. Users clips would be sped up for whatever reason — and now this is fixed!
- Audio/Video should always be in sync.
- Audio won’t be choppy anymore.
- Having non-ascii characters in your computers username or file-path will no longer prevent you from recording your sweet no scopes.
- If Medal ever has any problems installing, downloading updates, or if it needs a graphics driver update — it will tell you when something is up
If Medal ever has any problems installing, downloading updates, or if it needs a graphics driver update — it will tell you when something is up.
- Medal will no longer prevent your computer from sleeping.
- Sometimes Medal wouldn’t know what monitor your game was on, but now it does.
- If for any reason Medal fails to use your GPU for encoding, it should always successfully use your CPU.
