The capturing of game video from your Mac or windows installed computer is very easy. There are many computer programs that can use for this purpose. Most famous uses ones are FRAPS and Game cam. They can be easily downloaded and installed. The Game cam is freeware software but the FRAPS is paid software. Once you have installed the program. The Video can be captured by the capture option in the software while you are playing games.

Remember that you have plenty of disk space on your hard disk drive in order to store huge video files that will be generated. Once the video cam be captured then you can edit it and make your game capture video. FRAPS show fps, record video game movies, screen capture software.

Hope it helps

Console Direct to Digital via Camcorder
The console direct to digital via camcorder method is an effective method although this seems to be very expensive. You just need to connect the console to your camcorder through a split cable, the other end should be connected with the TV to enable the gamer to play while recording the current video game. The camcorder has a microphone which should be used as needed.
 
Console Direct to Digital via Capture Card
Another way is to which you can install an inner capture card on your PC, you need to pick wisely because what you decided to use does matter. I don't find it easy to play on a computer screen so you need to utilize a split cable. And then connect the line-in on the gaming console and the line-outs of your television and capture card on your computer. You also need to connect the microphone on your sound card or capture card for recording. It is not too pricey and the utilize as a direct method.
 
Another method includes the installation of an internal capture card on your PC. On this method, it is important to consider which type of capture card you are using.

You will surely be needing to connect the microphone in the sound/capture card for audio review. A substantial improvement on using this method over the first one is that it is considerably cheaper to use.
 
The "point-camera-at-TV" Method
this method can be utilize by just pointing your camera to your television. The recording quality in this will be based on which type of camera you will be using. Recording audio on this method can be performed by syncing properly with the picture and audio from the game.
 
Record Using VCR

Record Using FRAPS (or similar program)
