What is storage auto manage?

In order to avoid old clips taking space on your computer Outplayed includes an auto manage feature which will automatically delete old clips. You can manage your storage auto manage settings in the Outplayed Storage settings:

Please note that the auto manage feature will not delete clips that are marked as Favorites. 

How to favorite a clip

To mark a clip as favorite simply click on the star over your clip or CTRL+D :

Once a clip is marked as favorite, you'll be able to easily find it in the Favorites tab:

Clips marked as favorite will also be protected from the auto manage feature in case you have it enabled. Outplayed will not automatically delete any clip that is marked as favorite - notice that it will be counted for the quota.

Where to find the video files

You can find the original recording files by going to the Outplayed settings and clicking on Storage:

You can also find a specific video file by clicking on the Open Folder button over the clip:

Please note that moving or editing these files will remove them from Outplayed. If you would like to edit these files we recommend making a copy of the original file.

How to locate and reconnect clips

Making any changes to the Outplayed media folder or directly to the Outplayed recording files such as renaming or moving the recording files may disconnect them from Outplayed.

If the recordings do not appear in Outplayed but you still have the recording files themselves you can re-import them into Outplayed.

How to create a shorter clip out of your recording

What are APM Stats?

APM Stats show Actions Per Minute. We count any keyboard key pressed and every mouse button click and calculate the APM based on that. 

The Average is the match average and the All time avg. is the average across all your games.

You can view the APM Stats by clicking on the icon:

Low disc space error

If your storage root folder (For example drive C: ) falls to under 200 MB of free space Outplayed will show the "Low disc space" error during the recording and stop recording. You will then be unable to record further clips with Outplayed.

In order to resolve this matter you can either delete clips, clear space in the directory or change the media folder under the Outplayed Storage settings to a folder with more available space:

Please note that you will then need to reconnect your clips or re-import the clips into Outplayed.
