What is a good software for recording games I play on a console for the TV? What is good software for recording games I play on my PC? I need to know because I need to post youtube videos of myself playing video games.

FRAPS! This is the only thing I have used for PC, and it works very well.
It doesn't cost much, and you can find it "on the internet" as well if you can't buy it haha.

If you have a nvidia card, you can check if you can use Shadowplay.

I'm looking for a free software. But thanks for the suggestion even though this software costs money.

I use https://obsproject.com/

As for recording yourself playing the console, you're going to need hardware for that. I recommend the Elgato Game Capture HD.

You could run the game in Steam, and use its video recording feature in that case. Even non-steam games can be run with the Steam overlay. I think raptr also has a video recording element.
I think there is a windows version of "GTK-Recordmydesktop", its an FFMPEG front-end so the Windows version would be something else.
Looks like CamStudio is one of those things, http://sourceforge.net/projects/camstudio/?source=recommended
Hope that helps out somewhat!

Ya, if you have a NVIDIA graphics card get NVIDIA geforce experience.. that's where you can use shadowplay and record your games.
