Can I restore a deleted recording?

If a recording was deleted without your knowledge please check if the storage auto-manage is enabled and change the settings as needed.

You can always create a backup of your current recordings using the guide here: How to Backup and Restore your Outplayed recordings

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:

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.

You can use the Outplayed Editor to edit out the times in which the recording is paused. It is not possible to remove the watermark itself.

What are APM Stats?

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.
