Fraps is one of the most popular apps for gamers, as it allows you to create in-game footage, see the FPS of your computer, capture audio or screen images, and create split movies.

Capturing the in-game footage nowadays is becoming more and more essential. Gaming is an industry that’s still growing, and more and more gamers are creating Youtube channels where they upload the footage of their games. But for that, they need the right software for the job, and Fraps is among the most commonly used apps.

It lets you capture footage inside a game, capture audio or video of your choice, see the FPS as you play, create split movies, and more.

In essence, it’s very simple and easy to use, but this simplicity makes Fraps so popular – you can start recording in seconds without needing to open the interface at all.

Old but Effective Interface

The interface of Fraps might look a bit dated, but the good news is that you won’t need to use the interface that often.

Thanks to the hotkeys you’re able to set up with this app, you’ll be able to start taking screenshots or footage of your screen inside games by simply pressing a key, which means you won’t even need to open the interface.

Record Footage, Audio, and Video

The main purpose of Fraps is to help you record in-game footage as you play the game. You’ll be able to capture the entire screen or select to capture the audio or video of the games as you play them. You can also take screenshots if you wish to do so.

What is more, you’ll also be able to see the FPS as you play the games, giving you a good idea of how your computer performs as you play the game.

There are benchmarking capabilities included here. Moreover, you’ll also be able to create split movies, which is popular for comparing graphics settings for games, for instance.


Fraps is a simple but popular app for capturing in-game footage, screenshots, audio, and video. It will also show you FPS.
