Capturing video from VICE

I have found where to record video from a running VICE session and the output is just fine, just very limited in resolution. Is there any way to make the capture using a higher resolution (just like what I see on screen that is doubled x2)? I guess I can drop all frames with ffmpeg, upscale them 200% with imagemagick and reencode but it seems cumbersome.

If I upload the lores capture I get now to Youtube, they make a mess of it when they reencode it. Looks like online video from 2001.

You might get better results by capturing the window (at whatever size looks good to you) with something like OBS.

if you are on Win10 Win+G works fine enough for capturing vice.

I'm on Linux so I went with OBS with great result. Thanks for the advice Mr. SID.

Since C64 is 50 FPS (Safe to assume you're using PAL C64, right ?) and 99,99% sure your computer resolution is at 60 FPS just recording the screen might not produce a nice 50FPS video. Actually, even just using VICE on a 60FPS screen is not that smooth. Change to NTSC VICE from time to time, you'lll see how freaking smooth it is then

To view things like IFLI and such smoothly on PAL, from time to time I run VICE at 120% speed.

Golara: I see, yes I captured at 25 fps I believe. It was my own little PETSCII intro that don't do super-mega-effects so I'm satisfied anyway. We shall have to hope that the VICE authors will put the ability to capture in a higher resolution in their software in future updates (I'm looking at you groepaz :)).
