u/Trrav · 5 pointsr/pcmasterrace

So, I've been doing some research for doing my first build and thinking about different things that I want. If possible, I would to get a capture card or something similar with an HDMI input so that I can watch TV (I have a cable box with an HDMI output) or play a console in a window from the PC. I don't want to do any recording, just watching/playing, but I imagine input lag can be an issue. I've been looking around and managed to find this card:

but am not sure if there is something similar or a different way of going about this. This card seems to come with a program dedicated to recording/streaming, are there programs out there that would be better for what I want to do?

Sorry if my question is confusing, I can be pretty terrible with wording sometimes :(

u/MagniMaza · 3 pointsr/Twitch

Streaming setups are inherently difficult is there are a lot of variable to consider, so I totally get it!


You CPU should be fine, its an 8 core processor. My wonder here is, because I did some research and it seems that with that particular capture card this seems to be a common issue. I also know that I already asked this but if this ("Game Capture HD60 S (Video)(#01)") is an option for a video device, this would be the one you want to use.


Photo for reference <-- This is from OBS Studio, but the settings should be very similar.


  • I would also lower the cpu cycle presets by going to: SLOBS settings > Output > at the top select drop down menu and go to advanced > scroll down to encoder (probably X.264) > scroll down to "CPU Usage preset" > move it to ultrafast.
  • On the same page, check to see if the rescale output is selected. If not, select it and rescale to 720p.


    Are you also seeing the choppyness on the stream end? **Edit, I just looked at your vod that shows the new capture card, and I can see that the video just stops. Interesting......


    It also seems that these USB driven capture cards tend to pitter out after a while of stream use, I would recommend if you can to grab an HD 60 PRO, its an internal capture card and I have yet to see any frame loss issues and I have it capturing a second computers audio and video (Not and ad, just personal preference :) ).


    Here is a link to a thread that has some other step by step detail:

    If something doesn't make sense, feel free to DM me and I can have you send some screen shots of your specific SLOBS settings and I can see what you are working with!

An HDMI Capture card. I'm using the Elgato HD60

u/Ankore · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Is there rlly a difference between streaming with NVENC on a good GPU vs streaming with a capture card like this?

u/elcanadiano · 2 pointsr/Rockband

I did not realize I failed to respond to this beyond that. I apologize for that.

In terms of capturing game footage, you need go for a capture card. I would personally recommend one that is PCIe-based if possible. Could be any of these (all are Amazon US listings, check your local country or elsewhere if applicable):

u/drewlinskii · 2 pointsr/Twitch

I still haven't upgraded much in just a little over a year of streaming, but there are many things that I would love to upgrade.

Actually, just yesterday, I ordered a new mic. The Samson C01 from a cheap Excelvan BM-800 I got over a year ago. Would have gone with an AT2020, BUT I just don't have the budget to get that, especially while still trying to save up for an Xbox One. Only reason I'm upgrading the mic is because there's been an annoying buzzing in the background for the last few months, and it just recently started bypassing the noise gate!

Other upgrades I'd like in order of importance are:

  • Xbox One
  • Elgato HD60 Pro - Because my Avermedia is starting to fail me
  • Upgrade PC - i7-4790k, new MB, new/more RAM, new case, and SSD.
  • New Peripherals - Headset, Keyboard, Monitor.
u/Peer_o · 2 pointsr/AskBattlestations

I use the AVerMedia Live Gamer HD one to play games on my monitor instead of on my TV. It is a relatively old card at this point. I have seen people starting to recommend Elgato Game Capture HD60 Pro. That card is brand new, so it is getting some attention. I am looking to upgrade to that one and sell the old one probably in the next few months just because it looks nicer in my case. It has 1080p60 recording I think, and the Avermedia card does 1080p30. Both cards do passthrough at 60 fps anyway, so it isn't a huge issue unless you are trying to record or stream at 1080p60fps. Your internet probably couldn't handle that. Both of the options I have given are pretty expensive, but it seems more convenient for your intended purpose. It does result in a lot of HDMI/DVI/DP cords behind your case. If you are looking to spend money on the cards I have recommended, you should probably start streaming to at least justify some of the costs. Let me know if you need any more help, and good luck.

u/supermonkeyball64 · 2 pointsr/livesound

I am a streamer who is looking to improve my set-up over this summer. One of the things I am looking to do is separate the audio from my game system to a USB mixer I am looking to pick-up. My big tradeoff would be that no longer I'd have separate tracks on OBS Studio (where it records the audio) but with easily being able to adjust audio live better through a mixer I think it's worth it.

So my set-up would be Game System HDMI Out -> Capture Card HDMI-In -> Capture Card HDMI-Out -> HDMI Splitter -> HDMI Audio Converter Extractor -> USB Audio Mixer.

Essentially after the audio converter, I'd plug this in (RCA Cables) into here (L and R Tape In on the board.) Sorry if I'm not technical enough...still learning a lot. Is this correct and would it work well?

How would I be able to send the sound out to a venue's sound system and then be able to control what they can hear on it while maintaining the stream on my computer captures a different sound?

For example: When an actual match is being played I do NOT want the commentators being heard on the live PA system as it would disrupt the at that point I'd want the sound going to the venue system to be turned off...but once the game ends I'd want them to speak to the venue about any deals showing on screen, in general getting the crowd hype, etc. How would that be possible?

Thanks for any help you can give!

i7 with 4 cores, probably 6700K, not even overclocked


yeah, he has a 6950X, but he also has 1.4 million followers


5960X, last generation's ultimate CPU, but he has 1.9 million followers.
plus he doesn't even record gameplay with his CPU. he uses an elgato capture card.

look at most CS:GO or overwatch pros, they either use a $200 capture card or just record with their cpu, having a dedicated capture pc or a 10 core cpu is definitely a luxury

u/LackingAGoodName · 2 pointsr/xboxone

You'll want a Capture Card that can record 1080p 60fps (which is the max for Xbox One), if you're not fimiliar with your computer hardware go with the Elgato HD60, if you're comfortable installing a card into your computer for 0 Delay recording then get the Elgato HD60 Pro.

u/Graphics_Nerd · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

your ryzen should be able to handle streaming and playing at the same time.

Otherwise, you can use something like the Elgato Game Capture in another pc

u/depatrickcie87 · 2 pointsr/hometheater

Alright, sorry I just edited that last post like 10 times, and I wanted to make sure you get the right info here;
You don’t really need an AVR. Nor do I think it’ll do what you want it to do.

Elgato Game Capture HD60 Pro - Stream and Record in 1080p60, Superior Low Latency Technology, H.264 Hardware encoding, PCIe

Look into that capture card. Costs less than a decent AVR and I think will suit your purposes.

Only thing I’m not sure about is if you’ll still get multichannel sound from your console, if you’re viewing it on your PC through the capture software.

u/JordanFox2 · 2 pointsr/obs

You have to get yourself a capture card.

The setup will pretty much be this : Gaming PC > Capture card > Recording/streaming PC. There are 2 main types of capture card; PCIe and external.

Elgato and AVerMedia are 2 companies that make them although I am sure there are others as well.

u/MrAllahdin · 2 pointsr/PS4

I use the Elgato Game Capture HD60 Pro and I haven't had any problems with it. I haven't tried any of the competitors, but I'm satisfied with my purchase.

u/xT2xRoc · 2 pointsr/mixer

when i say PCI card it's just a capture card that gets installed inside the PC as opposed to and external one that's plugged into USB


u/MotherNinten · 1 pointr/wiiu

I've considered Elgato, but there are many options. The normal Elgato HD60 would be a standard, since it captures 60FPS, but then there's more options, like the Elgato HD60 S, and the Elgato HD60 Pro. I'm not sure which option to choose, as I want to get the most out of my money, but also want a card that isn't complicated to set up, or will fail on me.

The first build can easily demolish any 4K or 1440p. I'd recommend getting a 1440p monitor with g sync since that complements the 1080ti very well. Also it's mostly all black so no rgb.

The second build is an editing machine and really all I did was change up the CPU and mobo. I also changed the case to make sure you don't get them mixed up. It's the same case just a different color.

Also I recommend the elgato capture card hd pro which goes for $183 on amazon

You could also go for 64gb of ram on the editing build if you'll be doing a ton.

u/SaveusAlex · 1 pointr/Twitch

I use a HD60 Pro ( which is an internal capture card. PCI-E interface and it's wonderful in terms of quality. Absolutely no sync needed to be done through OBS either, it's lag free in my experience. I do a ton of Wii U content lately because of it. I can't recommend it enough.

Only one thing to note with it, it doesn't work with 64Bit OBS at all. 32 Bit or nothing which I suppose doesn't make much of a difference.

If you use another streaming program like X-Split I can't really speak much for this card but on OBS it's a dream.

u/CursedLemon · 1 pointr/buildapc

There's no reason at all you can't use your current PC as the streaming box. The only extra thing you would need to buy is a capture card like this one.

u/MalenfantX · 1 pointr/oculus

Maybe for 4K, I don't know, but anything that outputs in 1080p or lower, can be split off to a capture card.
This deals with the HDCP

You capture with something like this

u/djrbx · 1 pointr/ElgatoGaming

I'm not bashing Linux. I myself have a Linux server hosted via Quadranet and love it. I run Linux at home with my media server and custom NAS box. Linux is great for an always on, high uptime/availablity server. You wont find me arguing that aspect.

But the fact of the matter remains that outside of professional IT environments, Windows is still the reigning champ with consumer PCs. Thus, the majority of Elgatos customer base is running Windows. Out of all 2000+ people who bought the card on Amazon, only 7 people who reviewed it mentioned Linux.

Now I'll be the first to say that this is not a true representation of every gamer who uses Linux, but the point still remains that Linux itself is still rather a small subset of a larger market.

First, not every gamer/streamer will have a dedicated streaming PC. Then out of that group, you have a smaller subset of users who actually know how to use Linux whereas the majority will probably just install another copy of Windows on the machine and continue on with their day. Personally, I honestly do not think that the majority of any popular streamer out there actually knows how to use Linux anyway, the closest to Linux any of them ever gets to is probably a Mac which is Unix based. If you ever worked in IT, you'll know how the average user is technologically inept.

It's the same reasoning why most applications have Windows and/or Mac installers but typically leave Linux untouched, the market isn't strong enough to justify development costs. Just because Elgato can afford to pay a dev to port the drivers over to Linux, it doesn't include the costs for continued support when they also have to use the same costs to continue development for Windows machines.

I'd love to see Linux support but I'm also not going expect it from them as I know there's probably not enough demand for it to begin with. If that was really the case, then we'd see a lot of independent devs with projects about Linux development on their forums and on github.

u/typewritermender · 1 pointr/buildapc

/u/atomkanister /u/deltaeris Seeing that the Elgato we were planning to get for game capture [edit] is potentially incompatible with the Ryzen. Any advice there?

u/Hammertoss · 1 pointr/Twitch
u/IlyichValken · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame

This is the one I bought. Loving it so far.

The program that comes with the driver does have the ability to stream to Twitch and YouTube, though I use it with OBS because there's a bit more control over it.

The party thing seems to be the only issue so far, which is easily fixed by getting a splitter or the chat link cable that Elgato has.

u/t1gz · 1 pointr/Twitch

As someone who does a halo marathon stream once i year, i'll tell you its not cheap. But it can be done. The best results come from using four Elgato HD60 Pro's ( going into one PC. With four webcams and four microphones at each station. To ensure that there is no feedback from the tv's make sure each station has headphones. For software I use XSplit to stream and Ankhbot to monitor chat.

If this is the route you go, remember to buy long enough hdmi cables that will go from your xbox's to your pc and back again.(Input/Output) As well as POWERED USB hubs for all the mic's and webcams, and long enough USB extensions to reach those.

Hope this helps!

(Also consider switching to a different weekend, PAX South is this weekend. And that might take away possible viewership)

u/Library_IT_guy · 1 pointr/Twitch

Alright so after looking around a bit, I think something like the the Elgato HD60 Pro would work quite well.

I'm a little confused on the how this and other capture cards work though, and I want to make sure that I'm going about this correctly.

So I have a dual PC setup - Gaming PC, Encoding / Streaming PC. Here is how I am picturing this scenario:

  1. Gaming PC DOES NOT have a capture card installed on it. It pushes out 1080p60 video by duplicating my gaming PC display to my GPU's second HDMI port. Gaming PC's job is done at this point - all it does is play the game and send video out to the 2nd PC.
  2. Streaming PC DOES have capture card installed. It receives the 1080p60 game video (along with game audio) via capture card on the HDMI port.
  3. Microphone is connected to Streaming PC.
  4. Streaming PC is running OBS, where I have all of my video / audio sources added - my various chat / donation overlays, game sound / video imported via the capture card, microphone, etc. Everything is mixed and tweaked here.
  5. Streaming PC puts it all together and encodes it with X.264 encoding. I'll be sending out 1080p60 @ ~10mbps to YouTube (since they allow higher bitrate / resolutions than Twitch, and most of my viewers are there).

    End result: crystal clear 1080p60 with minimal quality loss that gets transcoded by YouTube to 720p, 480p, etc, so that viewers can stream it in the quality of their choosing depending on their internet speed. The idea being that this is good enough quality that people can view the 1080p60 later on and not be bothered by the video quality.

    For reference, my computers -

    Gaming Rig

  • i5-6600K OCed to 4.4ghz
  • Water Cooled GTX 980 ti
  • 32 GB DDR4 3 ghz RAM

    Streaming Rig

  • Generic refurb PC with i7-4770K
  • PCIe capture card that supports at least 1080p60 and can simultaneously stream and record. Probably the one I listed above, unless there's a better option or that one has some limitations that I'm not aware of.

    Does this look correct?
u/Brawli55 · 1 pointr/Twitch

I'd avoid external capture cards (specifically USB 2.0 ones) at all costs. Instead, go for something internal as it will lessen the complexity needed to compose you audio and video components of your strean. Elgato has an internal card just for that purpose:

Full disclosure, Elgato sent us a pre-release version of this card, but even then I would still recommend it. If you're looking to only capture HDMI sources this is one of best cards you can get.

u/kyle6477 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Most of us use Elgato Game Capture products like the HD 60S, HD 60, or HD 60 Pro, along with OBS Studio and a slew of other software and gear.

u/Jedimyth · 1 pointr/Twitch

You will need one of the following items:

Elgato HD60 Pro (installs into a PCI slot on your motherboard)

Elgato Game Capture Card HD60 S -

I personally have a Elgato HD60 Pro and I love it. Works great for recording my consoles.

Either of these options will do. Good luck 👍🏻

u/ReasonableRam · 1 pointr/xboxone

A little unconventional, but I've been using my internal capture card on my PC to capture the sound since I switched over to using a monitor but it is an additional piece of hardware that not most people would have already.

I use an Elgato Game Capture HD60 Pro.

u/Thatisdifficult · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Here you go.

I hope I'm not too late.

      The suggestions the other guys posted aren't too shabby. 4 cores 4 threads should be more than enough for streaming 1080p 60fps content, but I opted to get something more powerful since it's still within budget.

      I got the Ryzen 5 2400G since it is a very powerful 4 core 8 thread APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) that should be much better in a dedicated streaming PC than either the Ryzen 3 1300X or the i3 8100. If you're wondering, you will not need to purchase a GPU with this since it comes with integrated graphics. The more cores and threads, the better your streaming experience should be. If your budget was bigger, I probably would have been able to add a Ryzen 5 1600/2600 (6 cores 12 threads) or a Ryzen 7 1700 (8 cores 16 threads).

      Got a B450 motherboard to go with the Ryzen APU. AMD promises to support the AM4 socket until 2020. If you wanted to upgrade to a Ryzen 3000 or 4000 series CPU/APU down the line, all you would have to do is a BIOS update. You wouldn't have to buy a new motherboard like with Intel.

      Ryzen works best with fast RAM in dual channel, so I did just that. I got 3000Mhz RAM. Be sure to check the manual on your motherboard to see how to arrange your RAM sticks in dual channel. 8GB should be more than enough for your streaming PC.

      Added a 256GB SSD. This will make your operating system startup faster, and it'll also make your applications startup faster as well. Everything should feel very smooth if you're using an SSD; anything installed in this will feel very smooth and fast to use. I highly recommend putting your most used applications in here.

      I'm wondering if you plan on recording some of your streams and storing them in your computer for making YouTube videos or something later. I added a 2TB HDD so you can save some recordings of your streams. Feel free to remove the HDD if you aren't going to do this.

      The PC case I chose is pretty compact and has really good airflow to cool your PC parts down.

      This 550W Gold power supply is more than enough for your build. It's fully modular, so that means you can store the cables you aren't using in a drawer or something; it'll keep things clean. It also comes with a 10 year warranty if that matters to you.
    • -
      Additional Notes:

      If you don't mind doing rebates, I'm willing to make another build with rebates.

      Some people in this thread added some relatively more powerful GPUs (e.g. GTX 1050, RX 570 4GB) in their PCPartPicker lists. However, these are, for the most part, unnecessary for a dedicated streaming build. You could have even gotten away with something like a GT 710. You don't really have worry about that though, since the Ryzen 5 2400G comes with an iGPU that also happens to be pretty strong in its own right.

      I'm assuming you plan on using an Ethernet cable instead of WiFi for the best possible speeds.

      If you are using WiFI here's a recommendation.

      I also did some research on capture cards.

      I think the Elgato HD60 Pro will be suitable for your needs. It has pretty much equal performance to the Elgato HD60S, with the difference being that the card I picked is PCIE, while the HD60S is external. I suppose the decision is up to you in the grand scheme of things. What really matters is that they are both capable of doing 1080p 60fps.

      I personally prefer PCIE since I like having everything in my PC, but it may be different for you.

  1. My channel/business is called Scrapyard Films. I primarily create video editing tutorials for Magix Vegas Pro but also sprinkle in other tutorials for various other programs. I also have sub categories for my channel including my Let's Play series called Scrapyard Plays which I'm just starting to take more seriously and I'm also going to be doing more game reviews in a category called Scrapyard Reviews (Only reviews 1 game so far). I've had this YouTube account since YouTube was created so I have a bunch of other random videos on there that I created over the past 10 years that don't fit in the niche I'm now focusing towards.

  2. Gear and stuff:
  1. I'm uploading consistent videos to a schedule (every Tuesday and Friday). I'm interactive with all my subscribers. I'm providing the highest quality Vegas Pro tutorials on YouTube. I'm hosting easily winnable, monthly giveaways. I'm trying my best to make you laugh when watching video game videos.

i think PCI will be hard to find. if you have a newer PC you should look for USB or PCI-E capture card

Btw you can get the same price here on Amazon. Also the Pro is 175 right now too.

Along with this capture card

okay for the capture card you should probably consider getting something like this:
and the link in my first comment is a link to a PCpartpicker list of parts that are good for your needs the computer is around 700 USD and the capture card is around 150$ right now

I'm not actually sure what more we can do. We've reached a point where Elgato support would likely need to step in to try to figure out why the HD60 S is having issues capturing the PS4's input.

I did find another thread where an HD60 S owner with a system that was well above the listed requirement's on Elgato's site had the same issue with capturing the PS4. They ended up returning the HD60 S in favor of the HD60 Pro (The Pro is absolutely the best device out there for 1080p capture by the way, if you have the PCI-E slot for it) but of course, that card is a bit more pricey usually (Ironically, it's cheaper on Amazon US right now than the HD60 S is, though I'm unsure where you got your HD60 S, what you paid for it, or even what country you are in.)

And as for your motherboard - (incoming slight pointless rant) You do have 2 PCI-E x1 slots that should be accessible above the graphics card. Though, your motherboard is hands down, the most awkward layout board I've seen. The SATA ports are literally in line with the PCI-E slots. Who does that? Those should be down at the bottom end of the board like every other motherboard ever. They shouldn't hamper things if you did decide to move to the Pro though.

Rant aside, I'd recommend either contacting Elgato by phone or by ticket here and linking them to this thread to reference the troubleshooting steps we've already taken and confirm that your PC can do it decently well based on GPU hardware acceleration, but that PS4 capture specifically is an issue for the capture card (Based on our findings here, I'm confident that the issue is with the capture card's interpreting of the PS4's signal BEFORE it even gets to your PC. If it were your PC having the issue dealing with the signal, then you would have the same performance issue trying to capture PC as you do capturing PS4.)

Your price is a bit high. They’ve been selling for 80-120 on the forum & go for 150 brand new & 135 renewed on Amazon

Unfortunately the recent ones on the forum have removed their price, but here’s amazon

With the renewed for 135 & used for 121 under it in options

Is 165 a standard sale price for the Elgato HD60 Pro? I'm going to pick one up eventually, just not sure if I should do it now if it goes to this price regularly.

So something interesting happened, I got another alert from camelcamelcamel about the Elgato price, and this time it's the same $122 price, but a different Chinese seller (zhaogaisheng). Here's the item link:

And then I checked, and the seller who I bought from (shilijun) has had his Elgato listing taken down, and in fact his whole storefront is now empty. I think I'm going to try messaging shilijun, but a response is probably wishful thinking.

I did get an email from Amazon saying that my item had shipped, and in fact I got a tracking number as well, in the format of LI#########US, where the #'s are numbers (9 numbers in total). On Amazon, it says the carrier is USPS, but when I put the number in, I don't get any results. The same thing when I tried putting it in on Chinese tracking sites.

I mean, if you're editing or streaming, the 1800X hauls. It has 8 cores and 16 threads after all, and these chips are much different from the Bulldozer flop that AMD had years ago. Watch some benchmarks yourself :)

Anyhow, I do agree with your idea to transfer over your card and keep the older rig are your streaming PC. Heck, you might not even need to get a graphics card for that PC - a capture card is made specifically for streaming.
