Rightclick’ Quake in the Sources box and go to properties. Press OK. Wolfcam can record video files of demos, however the files it creates are bulky and huge and it’s not exactly a practical solution to create VODs.
For recording the VODs for our Lagserv VODs YouTube channel, we use a program called Open Broadcaster Software.
We’re planning to stream to the desktop … which basically means to create video files locally without streaming to the internet, give that a download, it’s a free program generally used for streaming on websites like Twitch.tv.
You must give it access to the Quake Live maps, only after Wolfcam has installed.
You need to also note that this directory is created by actually having a Quake Live account and having downloaded all the maps previously.
It’s hidden. You can also just copy and paste the entire thing and replace your username. Navigate toC.\Users\\AppData\LocalLow\id Software\quakelive\baseqThis is a bit tricky. Use the address bar at the p of the window and actually type in \AppData and you can continue to navigate through the folders, when you arrive to this directory. So in case you use explorer to navigate to \Users\, you’ll find that So there’s no AppData folder.
Watching Quake Live demos is a fairly straightforward thing to do.
We use a program called Wolfcam which we find much easier and ergonomic than watching the demos in Quake Live itself.
Version that we use is a modified version of This download must yield a folder called, for instance,wolfcamql9.Place that folder wherever you seek for. Look, there’s thispost on the Quake Live forumsoutlining the basics of the program. Fact, my folder is on my desktop. Link to download the program isright here. So that’s the location where you will put all of your demo files. Also, in this folder there’s one more called demos. Needless to say, let us obtain our own, look, there’re some demo files already in there for you to watch. Next, in thewolfcamql9 dot 11 folder, navigate to the ‘wolfcam ql’ folder. Usually, now that we have a demo, the Quake Live maps, and Wolfcam to actually play the demos, we shall try it out! In the wolfcamql9 dot 11 folder, doubleclick wolfcamql.exe and you could be greeted by a screen that looks like that.
Most important thing to remember.
Maybe just make a shortcut to that directory on your desktop so it’s convenient to access.
Watch out for changes to maps or new maps being introduced.
You will have to add/update the maps manually. Settings in Encoding and Video will vary according to the specs of your computer. Here’s a screenshot of my results.

Close Wolfcam, press Stop Streaming in OBS, find the.mp4 file that was created and check it out. You’re ready to start recording VODs, if so. Also, rightclick Game Capture/Quake or whatever you named it, go to Position/Size, and click Fit to Screen, I’d say in case the window in OBS looks really strange. Press Start Streaming. Then again, play with your settings, So if not. Open Wolfcam back up and run the demo for a bit. Doublecheck whether QUAKE or Game Capture or whatever you named it’s checked in the Sources box. You may also look for to adjust the audio levels of your recording at this time.
