Xbox One Game DVR clips can be uploaded and shared through SkyDrive

The Xbox One Game DVR and Upload features will allow players to load and share game clips through Microsoft's SkyDrive cloud storage service, according to a post on Xbox Wire.

Xbox One users will be able to save edited game clips directly to SkyDrive and share them with friends "without restrictions or limitations." From there, players can share the clips on social network and video upload sites, as well as further tinker with them using video editing tools.

Through Game DVR, Xbox One players can quickly capture the last 30 seconds of gameplay by saying "Xbox, record that." Alternatively, players can record up to five minutes of footage at any time. Players can navigate to upload studio by tapping the Game DVR notification or by saying, "Xbox, go to Upload Studio." From there, players can edit multiple clips together, trim clips down or add picture-in-picture video and voiceover commentary. Clips can be uploaded to Xbox Live and will be displayed in players' activity feed.

Game clips saved directly to SkyDrive will be stored in a folder titled Xbox Game Clips. All 720p mp4 Game DVR files can be synced across devices utilizing SkyDrive, including smartphones, tablets and Windows PCs. However, like the Dropbox file sharing service, upload space on SkyDrive is limited.

Game DVR and Upload Studio's SkyDrive integration will launch alongside the Xbox One on Nov. 22. Check out the video above for a walkthrough of the feature with Xbox's Kyle Lampe.
