Video Trade Recorder for Metatrader 4 & 5

Analyze and improve your trading with video trade logging software. Post your trades on Instagram and YouTube.

The video trade recorder plug-in for Metatrader platforms (versions 4 and 5) is designed for traders who take their trading seriously and are already logging their trades using traditional trade logs supplemented by screenshots taken during their trading.

Up till now traders were only able to use pictures of charts to illustrate their trades, because traditional screen recording software produced very large video files and were not able to record several charts simultaneously.

How is the Video Trade Recorder different from traditional screen recording software?

Incredibly small video file sizes

Utilizes XVID or plain AVI video format, both directly playable in Windows Media Player.

Minimum CPU overhead

VTR uses a fraction of what is consumed by traditional screen capture programs.

Full HD video support

Independent recording of up to 10 charts on each terminal. Even minimized charts!


Compatible with MT4 & MT5

Supports all MT broker terminals and enables trade recording on VPS servers.

How it works…

The Video Trade Recorder enables background recording of up to 10 independent charts on each terminal across multiple MT4/MT5 platforms (including charts that are minimized or work in the background of other charts on Metatrader platforms).

The software incorporates state of the art, on-the-fly XVID video encoding, plus inactivity time compression to produce clear motion video images of charts while maintaining the smallest possible file sizes. Two recording modes are supported by the software and the resulting video files can be played back directly in Windows Media Player. Recorded videos are stored in separate recording folders corresponding to various instances of your MT4 and MT5 terminals. Folders are accessible directly from the recorder software for ease of navigation. Video files have specially formatted names for easy recognition (see recording modes for details).

When utilizing XVID encoding, the recording’s quality can be controlled directly from the Xvid Configuration panel. You may also choose to disable XVID encoding for the highest fidelity of the recorded material.

Supported recording modes

Continuous recording mode
In this mode, the recording starts when the plug-in is placed on the selected chart and the *REC button is pressed. The process ends when STOP is pressed or the plug-in is removed from the chart. The user can select the video resolution by changing the width and height parameters in the plug-in inputs

Continuous trade recordings are named using the following format by default:



  • NUMBER is the MT4 account number
  • SYMBOL is the chart symbol
  • YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS is the recording timestamp (local computer time)
Event-driven trade recording
The recorder starts buffering the leading video once the “_recordVideo” indicator is placed on a selected chart and the user clicks “*Start”.

Once a new trade is placed, the software first records the pre-buffered video and instantly starts adding live video until the trade is closed or the user presses STOP.

The user can select the video resolution by changing the width and height parameters in the plug-in inputs.

A prebuffer setting is used to record the number of ticks (user-defined), which occurred before the trade was placed (excellent for reevaluating your entry!). Additionally, the user can choose to record only the trades having a predefined “magic number”.

Event-driven recordings are named using the following format:



NUMBER is the MT4 account number
SYMBOL is the chart symbol
TICKET is the ticket number of the recorder trade

  1. Market watch time from the MT4 platform used in the recording (for both onEvent & continuous recording modes)
