Welcome to the forums! Take a look at the tutorial as I mentioned before to get a feel for the EmuMovies guidelines for making high quality captures. Also, there is a thread here of missing videos we still need to knock out for various platforms. Many of them have been done but we still have more to do so that might be a good place to get started. Circo, myself, and others were working on NDS awhile back and i believe there is still more to do for that system as well, but you may want to get with Circo on that to see exactly whats left. Just post if you have any questions, myself or others will help you out.

I need to update the spreadsheet for DS, I'll try to work on that today, there is tons of content there to be done.  For DS your going to want to have fraps.  Record at 60 fps and submit following the tutorial.  Please ask as many questions as you would like and when your feeling confident you can attach your sample gameplay and capture vid for approval to a post.  Once approved then we can get you ftp access to upload.  Keep in mind the baseline for content contributor status is 100 video submissions.

I have 200+ DS games at my disposal so that doesn't seem to be a hard number to reach. I also got an equal ammount of PSP games/Minis. How will I know which DS games you have done already btw? DS games aren't in that list that riffman81 posted.

Looks good. You want to start further into the gameplay however. Looking for 30 seconds of action.

Don't even need to do that, had you cut in about 7 seconds later into the gameplay you would have been fine.

lol 7 seconds in would have been a long cutscene. But more action it is. My backs just been killing me today. Makes sitting at the computer hard. (My seat is a couch lol) hit me up when you got that list of DS games ready.

I'd been working on the missing DS vids before getting caught up redoing much of the problematic N64 set. I don't have Circo's spreadsheet but I have an xml list built from what vids are missing from a complete rom set. I was about halfway through the letter "B" so not very far yet.

 

Anyway, your Advance Wars footage is the wrong dimensions. It's a bit small and squished. You can manually resize Desmume's window to record. Get it to 480x720 or as close as possible by dragging the bottom right corner out. Otherwise there will likely be quality degradation once the vid is finalized because it'll need to be upscaled.

I'm really confused... I swear to you I've been converting them to that resolution. I'll try and fix that. Thanks for pointing that out!

 

Edit: I updated the links with videos at the proper resolution.

 

Heres another I'll upload for the heck of it

472x718 is what I record from the emulator at now (Was the best I could get it at). Very little upscaling will be required. :)

Here's a tip: Take an existing NDS video snap and play it in Windows Media Player (NOT full-screen of course) now match your emulator (Desmume) screen to the size of that window by placing it on top of WMP and manually resizing it to match. It should be spot on and good to go for captures! :)

With doing that the best i can get is 480x722. now it will need minute downscaling.

More! I made 2 gameplay videos as I didn't know what kind of "action" you can expect from a game like Animal Crossing. Surely you'll like one of them.

Heres the 2nd Gameplay vid.

Could you change my Topic Title to something like "Making DS Video Snaps" for me? Would be a more relevant title.

Here is the link to the spreadsheet: http://bit.ly/1kz2nRu

There are some games that need to be recaptured as the initial videos submitted are not up to standards.  I'll change the topic title no problem.
