How to Share Gameplay Videos

Learn how to share gameplay videos from expert gamer Rob Pimentel in this Howcast video.


Alright, so you're playing a game and something really awesome happens and you want to show your friends how it happened. How do you share that game-play video?

There are two ways to go about it and luckily they both work with the simple share button on the Dual Shock Four.

So what you're going to want to do when you're in the game is you're going to want to hold down your share button for a second, and it's going to pop up the share menu.

And that's what we're looking at right now. And it has three options there.

You can upload a video clip, you can upload a screen shot and you can broadcast gameplay.

So when you go to upload a video clip, it's going to immediately bring you into the game you're in, or you can choose if you're just in the menu what game you want to go into.

And you've got all these clips here. And it organizes them by the name of the game, by the date, by the time you're playing. So you can actually go back later to share these, and you're going to select one. And then when you select it, it prompts you to login to Facebook because that's actually how you actually share through the DS4 is through Facebook.

So when this menu pops up, you put in your Facebook credentials, login, and then it'll share it through your timeline.

Now, another way you can share it is through streaming, which is another cool feature that they've built in.

So if I go over to broadcast gameplay and it's going to actually bring up two options: Twitch and YouStream. They're both free streaming services. Honestly, whichever one you want to go with, it boils down to your personal preference.

I think Twitch is more popular through the video game streaming, while YouStream is for overall general live streaming on the Internet.

Now, when you go in and you would just configure what you are going to name your channel for the stream.

You're going to decide if you want to include the microphone audio because you have a microphone plugged in.

Whether you're going to show the comments people watching on screen, and if you want to post the link to the stream through your Twitter. Which again, you would login to the PS4.

Once you hit start broadcasting, that's as simple as that. You're now live and all of your gameplay footage is being sent over the Internet to whoever decides to watch.

So those are just two easy ways that you could get in and you could start sharing your gameplay with other people who want to watch it.
