Replays and Highlights are coming to the League client in the current patch!
Here’s how it works:
Download your replay from the End of Game Screen or Match History.
Watch Replays from the current patch using our new Replay Mode, with the functionality you’re used to from Spectator Mode.
Find cool moments using the new Annotated Timeline, which marks major events like kills, takedowns of towers and inhibitors, and dragon/baron kills.
Capture video clips of your in-game moments (“Highlights”) using built-in recording functionality.
These Highlights will be stored on your hard drive as a .webm video file. Go to your Profile in the updated client and watch your recordings in the new “Highlights” tab. You can also rename and delete any saved clips from there.
With all of those pieces put together, you’ll be able to quickly capture, save, and share your favorite moments on video to share whenever you want.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I find & watch a Replay?
After you finish playing a match, look for the download button in the upper right of the End of Game screen (next to Advanced Details).
Replays can also be found on your Match History screen. Once you’ve downloaded a Replay file (.rofl), the button should change to a new “Watch Replay” state . Click there to launch your Replay.
How long do Replays last?
Replays last for the length of a patch cycle, meaning they’ll expire once you patch up. For example, if you played a game on 7.1, you’ll be able to watch that Replay until 7.2 drops.
How do I share my Replays?
We’re actively exploring ways to help players share their Replay files (.rofl) with one another, but that’s not currently supported. At the same time, we’ve excited to see all of the video clips you take using the new Record Button. You can share Highlights (.webm) easily with friends or online.
Wait, there’s a built in video recorder?!
Yep. Just click the red Record Button on the new Annotated Timeline to start recording, watch your sick play, then click again to stop. We’re calling these video clips “Highlights” and they’re in the .webm format. You can find them in your Profile under the Highlights tab where you can watch, rename and delete these clips at your will.
Your Highlights are saved on your computer in the following location:
C:\Users\<Insert Your User Name Here>\Documents\LeagueofLegends\Highlights
(This path is also displayed when we confirm the Highlight was captured after you stop your recording). From there, you can upload it wherever you’d like to share with all of your friends.
What’s a .webm?
.webm’s are an open sourced video format that plays nicely with HTML5. That means you can drag and drop those video files into Firefox & Chrome and they’ll automatically play. Additionally, we’ve found that VLC media player http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html works well for playback.
