Welcome to the official launch of Plays.tv and the Plays.tv client!

Big news: Plays.tv is out of beta, and the Plays.tv client — our free and simple way to capture, edit, and share gameplay clips and post them to your Plays.tv feed and other social networks — is now available for download!

Dedicated to celebrating the pro in every gamer, Plays.tv gives all players a new way to memorialize their epic wins and fails as well as a community centered on reliving those moments with others. New site features added in our latest update make it easy to find the most interesting videos. Browse by game, player, or hashtag to see all the #CSGO #Ace clips, for example.

Plays.tv is your personal highlight reel

Plays.tv works seemlessly with Raptr and AMD Gaming Evolved’s GVR capture features, so you can save all your pro moments and easily share them with friends and the gamer community.

And for gamers who don’t have Raptr or AMD Gaming Evolved, the new Plays.tv client is a free, fast, and simple way to capture, edit, and share gameplay clips and post them to your Plays.tv feed and other social networks like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. The Plays.tv client automatically starts recording during gameplay and uses hardware-accelerated video encoding to ensure minimal impact on performance. The client can optionally capture the user’s webcam (picture-in-picture) and can also automatically import videos recorded using other software such as OBS, Raptr, and Nvidia’s Shadowplay for easy editing and sharing. The Plays.tv client works with any PC game.
