AnsweredCan't Record HK Footage on Switch😭

There is something I want to record in Hollow Knight (but I don't want to spoil it either), but it says that videos cannot be captured for this software. Any explanation why?

Well, sometimes, the video capture feature impacts performance. Although Team Cherry said they would try to find a way to do it without impacting the frame rate negatively, it seems didn't work. And some users assume that games that weren't specifically made for the Switch cannot be recorded.

As this affects many games, it's better to find another way to do the game recording. A third-party game recorder called EaseUS RecExperts is a good choice. All you need to do is to download and install this recorder, connect your Switch to your computer, and launch Hollow Knight for recording.

✅Download this capable game recorder first!

❓What else you need:

  • A Nintendo Switch device
  • A Nintendo Switch Dock
  • A desktop computer
  • HDMI cables to connect the capture card

✒️After connecting your Switch to your computer, follow the steps below to start recording:

  1. Step 1. Firstly, select Game from the left side of the interface. Then, go to Settings > Video to adjust the frame rate, video quality, format, etc. Then, click OK to continue.
  2. Step 2. Go back to the Game mode interface and click Select Game to choose Hollow Knight.
  3. Step 3. Click REC to start your game recording. Once done, click the red square sign to stop the recording process. Then the tool will then lead you to the Recordings interface.
