Mastering Beat Saber: A Guide to Recording VR Gameplay

Record Beat Saber In Virtual Reality

​If you love Beat Saber and have tried to record videos, you’ll agree it’s not possible to record videos unless you’re glued to your browser or use a tool, gear, or computer hardware. Developers track movement in this rhythm game with sophisticated software on their browser.

Your movement and field of view (FOV) in virtual reality are restricted when you have a link cable from a Valve or Oculus headset pulling at your computer’s graphics processing unit (GPU) or central processing unit (CPU). A Wi-Fi connection or virtual desktop that allows you to view and record your favorite artist’s celebration will do the job with less pain.

​How Does Beat Saber Work With A VR Headset?

​Beat Saber is the best social media game around. You’ll feel like you’re in a different world as you wave your lightsaber to the beat of the music! It’s an enjoyable way to stay healthy and fit, all while you’re having fun. It’s even better with a physical game controller.

A good virtual reality head-mounted display, of course, is also important to the whole experience. Beat Saber, for example, only works with the new generation of VR headsets like Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest 2, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR.

So, if you want to invest in Beat Saber, it’s important to stay on top of the virtual reality technology.

​How To Record Gameplay In Beat Saber?

​People often wonder how to record their gameplay while playing Beat Saber. Here are five ways to do this.

​Method 1: Use A Screen Capture Program

  2. Once you have the program downloaded, click on the settings tab to set it up.
  3. Then, press record.
  4. While you play the video game, you can either do a video or a stream.
  5. Once you’re finished, you can save the video or broadcast the stream. It’s that simple!

​Method 2: Use The Steam Link App

​The following technique will allow you to stream your SteamVR games from your HTC Vive or Oculus Rift headset to your television channel or monitor.

It’s not hard, but it does require you to use an Xbox One Wireless Adapter for Windows (around $25) and your game pad of choice (a DualShock 4 or Steam Controller for example).

This method uses the Steam Link app. It’s still in beta, available for Windows only and you need to be in the same network as your gaming PC (or it must be connected to your router via an Ethernet cable).

​Method 3: Record Beat Saber Footage On Oculus Quest 2

​With this setup, you’ll have all the goodies to record yourself playing Beat Saber in virtual reality with the Oculus Quest 2.

  • First, you’ll need a PC to control streaming at 60fps.
  • Then, throw that into your Quest 2, set up Steam VR, throw on the Quest 2, put on the Quest 2 headphones, fire up the video game, and stream away.
  • ​Have you tried the new Quest 2 from the Oculus brand?
  • With its extended 128 GB memory at the same original price of $300, this VR headset is a gamechanger.
  • Check out its advanced video game features at the Oculus Store.

​Method 4: Save It Via Your Computer’s HDMI Port

​Sharing your VR experiences from your Oculus Rift or HTC Vive to your Smart TV or monitor is easy. All you need is one additional device – a graphics card. And here is how you achieve it.

  1. First, you need a display that is HDMI-ready. You can use a monitor, a Smart TV or a projector.
  2. Second, you need a graphics card, which comes with an HDMI port on your computer. Connect it to your display.
  3. Third, you need a VirtualLink cable, which is a new USB Type-C connector used on VR headsets. You need to connect it from your VR headset to your graphics card.
  4. And the last step is plugging your graphics card into your headset.

You can start broadcasting your VR experience from your VR headset to your display now that your VR headset is plugged to your display.

​Method 5: Use Chromecast And SteamVR

  • ​Chromecast is a small dongle that allows you to cast your content from your computer to a large screen.
  • SteamVR supports Chromecast and you can use it to display your virtual reality experiences and video game output on a larger screen!
  • Chromecast is compatible with your television and monitors via the HDMI port.

With the use of SteamVR, you can record your VR experience and then send it to your TV or monitor. This way you can watch yourself play and show off your skills to other people.

​What Can You Do With Downloaded Beat Saber Recordings?

Once you’ve downloaded your recorded beat saber to your computer, you can make some changes to the video game song to make it your very own!

  • ​Start by editing the beats or syncing up with your favorite singers or rappers!
  • You can also add effects like delay to make it sound like the song is in many locations at once!

​How Do You Edit Your Recorded Beat Saber Mixed Reality Output?

​You can edit your recorded mixed reality output of Beat Saber by following these steps.

  1. First, copy the video file to your computer.
  2. Then press Ctrl F12. This will take you to virtual reality.
  3. When you’ve finished editing the video with desktop virtualization, press Ctrl F12 again, and the data will be saved.

You can then play new cut virtual reality Beat Saber content!

​How Do You Upload Your Edited Content To YouTube?

​After you’re done editing the video, you must compress it with video editing software in order to save space on the website.

Uploading can be done by setting up a YouTube account, pressing the upload button in the YouTube editor, and compressing the game in preparation for upload.

Uploading can be done in two ways.

  1. The first is to compress the video into a high-definition one and upload it to YouTube.
  2. The second is to compress it to a smaller size, upload the video using the YouTube app, and when you are done, compress it to HD using your video editing software. This is easier because you don’t have to download the software.

You can then email your edited software with your electronic signature to your friends.

​So, are you interested in recording Beat Saber? Are you tired of having to record this video game by using the mirroring, or using an external camera?

We all know that recording Beat Saber may be a little difficult when you try to combine different technologies including your smartphone or tablet computer. Oculus Quest 2 from the Facebook brand can make it easier for you to record the game.
