Replay HUD Error Messages information

Error message – Please update video card driver or change selected video encoder.
Explanation:
This error message is received when your driver for the selected encoder is out of date. If you are using one of the hardware based encoders (NVidia NVENC, AMD AMF, or Intel Quick Sync) please update your drivers accordingly.

If you do not want to update your drivers, or do not have the time, you can always swap to the x264 software encoder to record at any time.
This encoding method is heavy on the CPU compared to the encoders listed above so it's reccomended to avoid it and use of of them.

Error message – Selected video settings are too high Please lower the settings and retry.
Explanation:
This error message is received when your selected combination of Codec/Preset/Resolution/FPS combo is too demanding for your computer (lack of PC resources). Please try lowering the settings and play around with them to find the optimal selection for your PC.

If you have the option, we advise using one of the hardware encoders (NVidia NVENC, AMD VCE, or Intel Quick Sync) as this will free up some computer resources and allow higher quality recording in some cases.

Error message – Missing system files
Explanation:
The mf.dll file is one of many DLL files that comes with Windows Media Player.
We have found that in order to record videos properly, Windows has to have this DLL in its system files. In order to record even on the N version of windows (A version that doesn't come with Windows media player as a default player), you will need to download the right version from here:
