    Medal.tv supports whole session recording for also a while now. Only thing that I still keep missing from plays.tv is that old recordings are automaticly deleted if storage space ran out.

    16 alternatives to Nvtray 

    NVTray provides some extra quality tweaks that both the default NVIDIA tray icon and control panel are lacking. I especially wanted to be able to select more Antialiasing modes, as well as OpenGL and Direct3D options right from the tray icon.
