Thanks jerrycwo4That would only work if your friend also has FS2004 and has the aircraft you used etc.I would suggest using a video capture program such as FRAPS to record your flight.http://www.fraps.com/The resulting file, though quite large, can be shared like any video. You can also make the resulting file smaller using one of the many available editing tools. The default Windows Movie Maker can also be used to edit the FRAPS file.Another good Screen Capture program is called Camtasia -http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia.asp?CMP=...CFRKLxwod0xQZeABoth recommended programs have a free trial version.Hope that helps.

Further to my initial reply -I prefer to record the Instant Replay of a flight rather than a "live flight".To do that I first load an edited version of the language.dll file which has the Instant Replay message (bottom left of the screen) removed. Then I start FS2004 and make my flight.Then when I have a "good" Instant replay of it, I record that, using Fraps.That allows me to change the views during the Instant Replay making the video more interesting.Hope that helps.

Hi,"Opa" idea and process is a good advice (as usual :) )I would add .. to have a better replay (as the original recorder of FS9 is limited) I suggest to use FS Recorder...Better frame rate recording and many usefull options and user friendly...A must have:http://www.fs-recorder.netFor edit your video (reducing the size of the raw AVI file) .. you can use the XP or Vista builtin progam Movie Maker... or Virtualdub...http://www.virtualdub.org/Cheers.

Excellent advice to use FSRecorder Belga - shame on me for not mentioning that.
