Do you have a PlayStation 4 gaming console? Have you ever notice that your PlayStation 4 is recording your gameplay in the background? PlayStation 4 is always constantly recording your gameplay in the background, in case you want to save or share a video clip. And you can also create screenshots with a single button-press.

Then after capturing the video clips or screenshots, you can easily transfer or copy them from your PS4’s internal storage to a USB drive. Then you can take that USB drive to a computer and you can then use them to do anything you want.

So in this article, I will explain how you can easily save or share a video clip or a screenshot.

How to Save Screenshot or Video

So to save a screenshot or video in a game, press the “Share” button on the left side of you controller, near the directional pad.

Then the Share menu screen will appear. You can press the Circle button to leave this screen and go right back to where you were in the game at any time.

In some situations, the Share menu may not work because some certain video game or applications won’t allow you to capture screenshot or record videos. It depends on how the developer of the game or application developed and set its app or game. Nevertheless, this will work on most of PS4 games and app.

Then after the share menu appears, select the “Save Screenshot” by pressing the Triangle button or “Save Video Clip” by pressing the Square button. By pressing those buttons, it will save a screenshot or video clip to your PlayStation.

If you select the Save a screenshot, your PS4 will capture the current screen. But, if you select Save a video clip, your PS4 will save the last 15 minutes of your gameplay, which it was recording in the background all the while. PS4 only saves the last fifteen minutes of gameplay in a temporary buffer, so you can get any video recording more than fifteen minutes ago except you already saved it to a video clip.

You can upload a video clip or screenshot to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or Dailymotion by selecting “Upload Screenshot” to upload screenshot or “Upload Video Clip” to upload video clip instead. You can also share a screenshot through Facebook, Twitter, or a PlayStation message. 

In order to share or upload to other services not mentioned, you’ll need to save the screenshot or video clip to your PS4’s internal storage, copy it to a USB drive, and then move it to your computer.

How to Quickly Capture a Screenshot

You can quickly save a screenshot to your PlayStation 4’s local storage, by pressing the “Share” button on the controller and hold it down for at least one second. Then your PlayStation 4 will save a screenshot without visiting the Share screen. An icon will appear at the top-left corner of the screen to let you know the screenshot was saved successfully.

How to Copy Screenshots and Videos to a USB Drive

You can follow these steps in order to copy your save screenshots or videos to a USB drive. The first thing to do is to view your saved video clips and screenshots. So to view saved video clips and images, head to the Capture Gallery application added to your PS4. If it doesn’t show up on the main screen, you can scroll all the way to the right of the home screen, select “Library,” select “Applications,” and then select “Capture Gallery.”

With the use of this application, you can either view all your saved screenshots and video clips, or select a specific game and view the saved media files associated with that game.

So you can upload your media files from here. You can also copy them directly to a USB storage device and access them on a computer. So to this, simply insert a USB drive formatted with either the FAT32 or exFAT file systems into one of your PlayStation 4’s USB ports. Then select the media file you want to copy, press the “Options” button on your controller, and select “Copy to USB Storage Device.”

Then you can unplug your USB drive after copying the file and then transfer the files to your computer.

Note: This feature is intentional for capturing gameplay, so it won’t let you record videos from Netflix, Hulu, or other media services. On the other hand, it should work on almost every game and apps.
