Do you have an Nvidia graphics card? If so you might be able to use their ShadowPlay app. It works very well for live recordings or replays.

Cheers,

The problem with replays is that they become unplayable with later updates; so Jim's absolutely right - you need to record the video with a video capture program.

Does anyone know of a good free one? (I used to use overwolf, but then it stopped recording in-game footage...)

Hey... I think in the options area there is a checkbox for whether or not to keep battle recordings. Of course these aren't actual video but just a digital record of the events your client saw during the battle.

From that point you can find the saved files (they are in the Games/WorldofTanks/replays directory. When you click on them it launches the game and you get sort of a battle view player. What you need to turn them into videos is a screen capture app like Fraps or some other. I use Fraps but I think there are some free ones out there as well.

Cheers,
Jim

OK I'm into this WoT now and just wanted to find out how you record a battle.

I'm running WoT on a Mac using Wineskin (not full screen) so the recording means needs to work with Mac OS.
Any advice except, buy a PC?!
