How To Convert .replay to .mp4 in Fortnite

How To Convert .replay to .mp4 in Fortnite – The recent update pushed by Epic Games brought the long requested feature for watching replays of your games. The replay system is really good, you can watch the whole game with different angles such as Third Person, Drone Follow & Drone Free.

Epic has said in their release notes that they use the same system for making trailers and videos for limited time modes and outfits that they release time by time. You can use Geforce Experience as well to record your gameplay but the one epic has made gives you much more control over your angles.

  • Start Fortnite using the Epic Games Launcher
  • Go to the career tab, it will display all of your matches that you have played since the release of replay system
  • Select the file and view it
  • Use the settings bar given below
  • What you have to do now is, use a recording tool such as OBS, Nvidia Geforce Experience or Fraps

This is the workaround.
