How to Convert .replay files to .mp4 in Fortnite

Epic came out with a new feature called the Replay System for Fortnite Battle Royale with their new Update V.3.5.0. Here are the details of the Replay System :

Replay System

  • Save your matches and watch them from any angle!
  • Speed up or slow down the action.
  • Help tell your story better with player outlines and name plates.
  • Several Camera Modes to choose from:
    • Third Person
      • Follows and orbits around the selected player.
      • 3 different follow modes; Off, Auto, Lazy.
    • Drone Follow
      • Drone style camera that always keeps the selected player in frame.
    • Drone Attach
      • Drone style camera that is loosely attached to the selected player.
    • Drone Free
      • Drone style camera that is free to fly around the island.
    • Gameplay
      • This camera shows what the selected player saw during gameplay.
    • Adjust cinematic camera settings
      • Exposure
      • Aperture
      • Focal Length
      • Focus Distance

Now the problem is the replay videos are getting saved in .replay format which is not an actual video format. The .replay files do not contain video information. They contain game data. So we cannot directly convert them into .mp4 or other video formats.

You need to use Third Party recording software to record the replay footage. Screen recording applications like Fraps, OBS and even GeForce Experience would solve the problem pretty easily.

Here are steps to convert .replay files to .mp4 in Fortnite :

  • Launch Fortnite and play a normal Battle Royale match
  • After your match is over click on the Career tab
  • Click on Replay
  • Select the footage from the list and play it
  • Predetermine what settings you are going to use before you start the recording
  • Start the recording with one of the recording applications mentioned above
  • Play the Replay footage
  • Wait till you have recorded all the highlights you want to extract
  • Search for the folder where the recorded video is saved

You are good to go!

  1. Vary gud work for moi, 10/10 article.

    1. Thank You. Happy to help. 🙂

  2. I already knew how to do it…but you know what’s funny?The gameplay cam i

  3. What do we do about the replays that have been marked as outdated?

    1. Sadly there hasn’t been any fix to this issue from Epic’s side. So you have no other choice but to delete them as they could not be retrieved.

  4. When I do record/convert the .replay file, will the “eliminated whoever” text show? Because for some reason it doesn’t show in the .replay.

    1. Yes it is suppose to show.
