How to contribute to Community Game Help

If you enjoy sharing your gaming expertise with others and are willing to contribute to Community Game Help, you can participate by opting in from the Settings menu.* You can also opt out any time, which will remove all of your published videos from Community Game Help. These settings will become available within the next few months, so please stay tuned for more information.

Go to [Captures & Broadcasts] >[Captures] > [Auto Captures] > [Community Game Help], then select [Participate] to opt in to the program.

You can also select the monthly capture limit to control how many videos you will allow to be captured from your gameplay per month.

Once you turn on the settings, your PlayStation 5 will automatically capture a video when you complete a certain activity in a game. Then, it will be reviewed by a moderator, and if approved, your video will be published as a Game Help hint for PlayStation players to watch, learn from, and rate. Your videos will be removed from the PlayStation 5 console once they are uploaded to our servers, so it will not impact your console storage.

When your video is published, you will receive a system notification on your PlayStation 5 console.

This process will be done automatically, so you don’t need to edit or upload your clips for submission. Only your raw game footage will be uploaded, so images and audio from your webcam, microphone, or party chat audio will not be shared with the moderator or the community. Depending on the game you’re playing, your video may include online IDs or chat messages that are shown on your game screen.

You can check your published videos from the settings menu and remove them at any time.

Community Game Help will start to become available in select games later this year, and our goal is to expand it to as many titles as possible in the future.
