    I'm thinking of doing a Let's Play on YouTube, and I want to start with a NES game. Here's the thing, though:

    1. I have NO MONEY WHATSOEVER, so I can't use fraps, etc.
    2. I can only use a library computer that doesn't have drivers/chips of any sort.

    Is there an emulator that can record the game on its own without extra attachments? Or am I just too poor to make a Let's Play?

    Nestopia on Windows claims to have a video recording feature, but I haven't personally tested it. Seems to be what you're looking for, though.

    Happy Let's Playing. Is this for a YouTube video series?

    Yeah, I plan on Let's Playing a bunch of NES, and later SNES, games. Whether I'll later do Sega and N64 games depends on what people think of my videos, but either way, my first Let's Play is gonna be an extremely cliché choice (Super Mario Bros), just to get to know the ropes.
