Want to capture your best gaming moments and let your pals see them anywhere? That is incredibly easy to do with Xbox One’s new Game DVR and Upload features using SkyDrive, reports Xbox Wire.
When you use SkyDrive on Xbox One, “you can save your edited game clips directly to the cloud and share the way you want to share without any restrictions or limitations,” Xbox Wire writes. Xbox One is the “only console that allows you to take your clips to any social network, video upload site or professional editing tool.”
In the video shown above, watch lead developer Kyle Lampe walk you through the steps to snag a clip and put it in the cloud. It literally takes a matter of minutes.
“You get to choose whether you want to capture the last five minutes of gameplay or quickly capture the last 30 seconds simply by saying ‘Xbox, record that,’” writes Xbox Wire.
“Hit the Game DVR notification or say ‘Xbox, go to Upload Studio’ and you will quickly move into the app, where you can create personalized footage -- edit multiple game clips together, trim them, add picture-in-picture video, voice over commentary or choose a skin. After you’ve put all of the finishing touches on your video, it will be uploaded to Xbox Live where your friends can see it in your activity feed.”
When clips are saved to SkyDrive, they go into a folder called Xbox Games Clips, and the 720p, MP4 files sync “across any smartphone, tablet or PC, allowing you to share your greatest game moments anywhere.”
You can choose whether you want to share the clips “beyond your Xbox Live community, host it on your own websites, save to your hard drive, wrap in your own intro and more.”
