    How to Record GTA V Videos and Share Them on YouTube 

    The PC version of Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) has taken almost two years to launch after the game initially released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013. But it comes with its own unique features. Of these, the most convenient one is in-built recording and editing. What this means is, you don’t need a third-party solution like FRAPS to record your GTA V gameplay on PC. Instead, everything can be managed within the game. Here’s how you can make the most of it.

    Recording your clips

    Holding ALT and pressing F1 turns on Manual Recording. This lets you start and stop recording during gameplay. Pressing Left ALT and F1 saves it while pressing Left ALT and F3 cancels it.Saved clips will playback in-sequence.

    How to Play Videos, Music, and Photos on Your PS4 

    It’s been almost two years since the PlayStation 4 (PS4) was released worldwide. One of the biggest issues people worried about at the time was the lack of media playback. Microsoft’s Xbox One also launched without the same features, but quickly added them, supporting USB playback of popular formats for audio, video, and photos.

    However this has changed now, with Sony releasing a media player application for the console. It’s a free application you can download using your PlayStation 4, and you can use it to play videos, music and photos from a connected USB storage device. The Media Player can also display media content from a DNLA media server that is on the same network as your PS4 system.

    (Also see: Sony PlayStation 4 Gets a Dedicated Media Player App)

    There are just two main steps to using your PS4 as a media centre. Here are the steps you need to follow.

    To install Media Player on a PS4 system

    1. Switch on your PS4. Make sure you’re connected to the Internet.

    2. Select Media Player in the home screen or in the Library. Press X.

    3. Choose Download. Press X.

    After the file has been downloaded and installed, you can start the media player.

    Playing content

    1. Select Media Player from the home screen. If you have a USB storage device or a DLNA media server on the same network, it will be detected and show up automatically.

    2. Choose the USB storage device or media server you want to play content from. Press X.

    3. Choose the content that you want to play. Press X.

    That’s it, two simple steps and you can be listening to your favourite movie or watching your movies using your PS4.

    You can continue to listen to music in the background even if you’re playing a game. To do this, press the PS button, to return to the home screen, then start a game, browse the Web or run any other application normally. Your music will continue playing.

    If you press and hold the PS button for at least one second, you can pause the playback, adjust the volume or change screen settings. As you’d expect, background music is not allowed when watching video clips or broadcasts. At the time of filing this story, the PS4 media player supports the following formats:

    If you are using a USB storage device, you must save your files to a folder so that they will be recognized by the system.

    Visual: H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile Level4.2

    Audio: MP3, AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)

    Visual: MPEG4 ASP, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile Level4.2

    Audio: MP3, AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)

    Visual: H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile Level4.2

    Audio: AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)

    MPEG-2 TS
    Visual: H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile Level4.2, MPEG2 Visual

    Audio: MP2 (MPEG2 Audio Layer 2), AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)AVCHD (.m2ts, .mts)

    If you are using a USB storage device, you must save your files to a folder so that they will be recognized by the system.

    JPEG (DCF 2.0/Exif 2.21 compliant)



    If you are using a USB storage device, you must save your files to a folder named “Music” so that they will be recognized by the system.


    AAC (M4A)

    The update list of supported formats is always available on the PlayStation website.

    How to Record Game Videos on Windows 10 

    Ever wanted to share a video of amazing moments from games that you’re playing? Maybe there was that perfectly timed shootout in a Call of Duty session, or perhaps you’re still excited by a brilliant run and goal in FIFA. The PS4 and Xbox One allow you to record gameplay footage with the press of a button, but until now, PC gamers had to use third party tools to get this done, with services like Steam, Fraps, or the GeForce Experience. Windows 10 finally lets you record your game footage in a simpler fashion, via the Xbox app that comes bundled with the OS.

    Using the built-in Game DVR feature on Windows 10 is extremely simple, and also compatible with the Xbox One controller, so it’s one of the better options if you want to share your game footage.

    First you have to check if Game DVR is enabled. Go to the Xbox One app on your Windows 10 PC, choose on Settings and then select the Game DVR tab.

    Here, the first option is to turn the Game DVR functionality on or off. If it is switched off then click on the toggle to switch it on.

    You can also change what gets recorded. By default, hitting the Record that button saves the last 30 seconds of gameplay into a game clip. You can change this in the settings.

    How to Stop Facebook Videos From Automatically Playing 

    Facebook recently enabled autoplaying videos on its website and apps and this feature is great if you watch a lot of videos and have a fast Internet connection with a generous data cap. However, many people are likely to find autoplaying videos annoying, especially because they start playing even when you’re just scrolling down and don’t pause at the video. It can waste data, and sometimes people will share videos that you would rather just not see, but avoiding them when they start playing in front of you without warning can be difficult.

    It’s actually possible to disable the autoplay quite easily, though the settings aren’t very obvious at first glance. Don’t worry though – whether you want to disable autoplaying videos on the Facebook website or Android or iOS apps, we’ve got you covered. Follow these steps to stop Facebook videos from automatically loading and playing.

    How to Download Your Instagram Photos and Videos 

    Instagram, the photo-sharing service, has become one of the most popular platforms for users sharing moments captured with friends, family, and others. In September, the service passed the 400 million user mark with over 80 million pictures shared daily. Last month, Instagram claimed that the numbers of monthly active Indian users had more than doubled over the past year.

    But have you ever tried downloading a copy of the photos shared on Instagram? As you may have discovered, the social network only lets users post photos and videos – it doesn’t allow anyone (even you) to save or download the photos from within the app. This way the service tries to protect the rights of the Instagram users who share photos on the app. But there are few workarounds that can help users to save the photos they have uploaded to Instagram.

    Via third-party apps on the phone
    One of the most widely used third-party Android apps to download Instagram photos is InstaSave, which allows you to save Instagram photos to your device storage, so you can see the pictures anytime, anywhere. The InstaSave app can be downloaded via Google Play.

    Note that this and the other apps and services mentioned in this article are third-party software not affiliated to Instagram. These apps use Instagram Oauth for login, which means that although your password remains secure, the entire feed is accessible to the apps. And it’s important to note that you can’t always be sure about the password security either – see instances of rogue apps later in the article. If you understand this, it’s safe to proceed with use of these services.

    Highlights Videos on YouTube pause the moment you leave the app Using Safari or Firefox, instead of the YouTube app, can help get around YouTube Red brings background playback alongside other benefits

    In the world of online video content, YouTube is a behemoth. It’s the second-most popular site in the world (after its parent, Google) by most counts, and it has steadily expanded its soft power and influence to become the de facto website to upload or watch videos for and from individuals, small businesses, movie studios, music labels, game developers, big brands, and even government agencies.

    Owing to its prominence, YouTube has turned into more than a video platform, with people relying on it for music and podcasts, something that doesn’t need your eyes to be glued to the screen. Unfortunately, the YouTube app

    How to Stream Videos and Mirror Screen From iPhone or iPad to a Chromecast 

    Highlights Chromecast mirroring is only officially on Android and Chrome on PC It’s possible to daisy-chain Airplay and Chromecast mirroring Streaming videos to an Apple TV via supported apps is much simpler

    Google’s smart-TV dongle, the Chromecast, is a very versatile gadget that can be used to stream video content from the Internet through a wide variety of devices and sites to a big screen TV. However, it works just a little bit better if you’re living within Google’s ecosystem – just like Apple’s devices work better together.

    Maybe that’s why mirroring your smartphone or tablet is only officially supported on Android – if you want to get your iPhone or iPad’s display on the big screen, the best option is to buy the somewhat expensive Apple TV. Another choice would be to buy Apple’s lightning to HDMI cable, though it’s inelegant. The good news is that most media apps on iOS already support casting videos to Chromecast, so there’s no issue if you want to use it to play your favourite media.

    How to Stream and Mirror Content and Videos From a PC to a Chromecast

    How to cast videos from iPhone or iPad to Chromecast
    Doing this can literally be a single step process, if you only have a single Chromecast in the house. Otherwise there’s one extra step. This is how it works.

    How to stream videos from iPhone or iPad to a TV via Chromecast:

    Make sure that your iOS device and Chromecast are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Open an app such as Netflix or Youtube, which supports Chromecast. Load the video you want to cast. Tap the Cast button, a square with three curved lines like the Wi-Fi symbol coming out of the corner. If you only have a single Chromecast on the network, the video should start playing immediately. If not, you’ll see a list of available devices, and you’ll have to tap on the one you want to cast the video to.

    How to Stop WhatsApp from Downloading and Saving Photos, Videos Automatically on Android, iPhone 

    WhatsApp is used by over a 1.2 billion people worldwide, and 200 million in India alone. In fact, it is probably one of the first apps anyone in India downloads when they get a new smartphone as it has become the default means of texting in the country. However, it can become an annoyance too when it downloads all the media files automatically, from pictures to videos to, more recently, GIFs, not to mention audio files and videos. These not only clutter your phone’s gallery and music player, but also eat up a lot of storage and data. Here’s how you can stop WhatsApp from automatically saving photos and audio on your phone.

    How to Stop Auto Downloading and Saving of Pictures, Videos and Other Media on Whatsapp for Android

    WhatsApp for Android has a switch that lets you stop images and videos from downloading. Here’s how you can do it:

    Open WhatsApp, make sure you are seeing the main window – where all your chats are displayed. Tap the three vertical dots on the top right > Settings. Now tap Chat settings > Media auto-download. You’ll see three options: When using cellular data, When connected on Wi-Fi and When roaming. Tap each one and disable auto-downloads by unchecking all three options – Images, Audio and Video.

    To view photos, you will have to download them. When you do, WhatsApp saves them in a folder, and you can get inundated with stupid memes and other unwanted content, which is visible to anyone who open’s your phone’s Gallery App. However, it is possible to stop these photos from appearing in the Gallery app. Here’s how:

    Download Quickpic and open the app. Navigate to the WhatsApp media folders. The location of the WhatsApp folder varies across devices but it should typically be the following: Internal Storage (sometimes labelled sdcard0) > WhatsApp > Media > WhatsApp Images, > WhatsApp > Media > WhatsApp Audio, and WhatsApp > Media > WhatsApp Videos. Long-press the WhatsApp Images folder and make sure that it is selected. Do the same with the WhatsApp Video and WhatsApp Audio folders. After selecting the three folders, tap the three dots icon on the top-right > Hide. This will ensure that the Gallery app doesn’t show them. You can still view these images and videos within WhatsApp and through any apps that let you view hidden folders. But if you pass your phone to someone, you no longer need worry about them seeing the WhatsApp photos and videos through the Gallery app.
