Hauppauge HD PVR

by Vigiiante » Sat Jul 28, 2012 3:32 am

Hi, I want to know if the HD PVR will stream with xsplit. I want to stream halo or cod games and I want to know if the HD PVR will work with xsplit. Granted I'll have to make sure I use the right settings to make it work at it's best. I already bought a new capture card that did not work with xsplit so I want to make sure.

Yes the HD PVR works with Xsplit. There are multiple tutorials on youtube.

What card do you have that doesn't work with XSplit? Also the HD PVR isn't recommended for streaming.

You'll either want a Blackmagic Intensity Pro (Don't get the shuttle)
Avermedia Game Broadcaster
or the Avermedia Live Gamer

Since this topic is appropriate, I'd like to know if there are any usb hd capture cards that xsplit supports.

Does xsplit support avermedia usb hd dvr? Or elgato game capture hd, or DarkCrystal or the Hauppauge HD-PVR Gaming Edition? They are all usb.

When I mean support, I mean as 'add camera', not workarounds like screen capture.

Theres a reason why USB game recording cards aren't used for live streaming, they were never made for this kind of thing. So while yes they may be nice for recording gameplay, they are absolutely horrible when it comes to running a live stream.

Thats because the BMIS is an actual capture card, and not a video recorder. A video recorder captures and then automatically encodes the video on the card, whereas a capture card gets the video and sends it as a raw feed to other programs/devices to handle. Thats the main difference, one video is encoded, the other in a raw format, and it would take the manufacturer to release a driver update for video recorder cards to work in XSplit or other live streaming programs.

Thats what I'm saying. I need to stream. I bought the HD PVR because it's been out there and others seem to be able to use it so I am going to see if it works for me

Reason or not, the thing is, if you use a notebook, you are stuck with usb options. So no usb hd capture cards works whatsoever with xsplit?

BMIS is kinda of not an option because it's annoyingly restrictive when it comes to supported notebooks and desktops (x58 only).
