Overwolf Updated - Now With HD Video!

Hey folks.  Just a quick note to let you know that our Overwolf client has been updated with some pretty meaty new features.  Namely: the gadget now records video in high quality! 

Version 122 includes all of the following major changes.

  1. A new and better detailed game list, now sorting between OS, and constantly updated with our latest supported games.
  2. Game support according to user requests include Age of Conan, MapleStory, and more.
  3. A YouTube widget - time to watch Sam B dance while I Rift.
  4. Full-Size video recording, allowing you to record High-Quality videos, while setting the FPS yourself! I would love to hear your thoughts on that. The major advantage is the real time compression. as an example, a 30 seconds fraps recording I did (1080, 30 FPS) was 986 Mb, and same for Overwolf is 3.6 Mb. That is a great advantage for your hard drive space and allows us to upload videos to social networks. (Uploading one Gigabyte doesn't make sense or isn't possible).
  5. Don't want Overwolf's dock to automatically expand while hovering over it? You can now choose to open Overwolf's dock with a click instead. (Just configure this in settings > video). This request came straight from our MMORPG.com forums!
  6. As usual - more bug fixes and improvements in general.
We hope you guys are loving the partnership with Overwolf.  It's become a mainstay for most of my gaming, though even I can't wait until more and more games are supported with the client.  As always, feel free to share your feedback on this build here.  Uri Marchand and his team are always listening.  And go download the new client to check it out!
