FBX Support

Get the most out of FBX

Common questions...

Does FBX work with every game?

FBX records almost every game that uses DirectX9-12 or OpenGL. It also captures many older games that use DirectX7-8 – we’re adding support for more of these all the time. 

Will FBX work with my PC?

Yes. You don’t need something new or powerful, but if you’ve got that, FBX takes advantage of it.

Is FBX free?

Yes – but with some limitations.  Recording time is limited to 15 mins for each video and they carry an FBX watermark. Pro plans are available to remove them.

I don't see the Overlay/HUD - what's wrong?

This is usually due to an older game that FBX doesn’t support.

In some cases, an anti-cheat application may be incorrectly blocking FBX – but FBX works great with the major anti-cheat apps, like Battleye, EasyAntiCheat and Punkbuster. 

Either way, we’d like to know – go to the Support tab and send us a report. We’ll check it out. 

FBX is causing lag or dropping frames - why?

One or more of these actions usually improves performance.
Go to the ‘Video’ tab in FBX’s Settings:

Select the right encoder – make sure you have a hardware encoder selected if one is available. 
Don’t set a higher frame rate than you need – recording at a higher FPS will waste processing power.
Reduce the resolution/quality of the recording – select something other than ‘Original’ for the resolution or reduce the quality setting.
Close unused apps running in the background – low free memory or apps competing for CPU are a common cause of problems.

When will you add streaming?


Does FBX record Fortnite, Roblox, Minecraft, LoL, CS:GO, PUBG (on Tencent)?


For PUBG, set Tencent to use “OpenGL+” rendering.
