"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

An HDMI PVR would be the ideal solution for this - either a PC based one (See the Hauppauge or Pinnacle range) or if you have a Digtal TV recorder that both supports HDMI input and file transfer you could use that.

Here are some earlier threads on this site that cover the idea but it is basically feeding the TV output from the console into the recorder.

how can i record my games ?

Bear in mind that if you use a PVR card that relies on the PC to process the recording and then rendering to a compressed video file you'll need one with plenty of free memory, storage space and processing power to avoid dropping frames.

You can then upload the H.264 . mp4 video to YouTube and they will render it into the different resolution Flash files for their site.
