giantest of bombs, i'm trying to help the kids. my friends and i are trying to put some sort of stream thing together for ExtraLife and we're looking for decent capture / streaming equipment for game consoles that won't burn a hole on our wallets. i don't think continuing to use my laptop webcam for streaming Demon's Souls is a good idea.
anyway! i've been looking for easy streaming stuff and i came across the Elgato Game Capture HD. it's easy, lightweight, streams directly to twitch and supposedly cooperates nicely with Xsplit. it seems perfect, and the price doesn't seem too terrible either.
i'm just wondering if anybody has tried this thing before, and if so, how it worked out for y'all. the general consensus is that it's good, but i figure you guys would know what you're talking about. if not, is there any other easy streaming device or whatever that we can use that directly captures gameplay from the source, and doesn't look terrible?
if it helps any, i'm probably going to stream from a mid-2012 MacBook Pro so something external would be great. i use some Sony receiver that i hook up all of my consoles to so i can get surround sound, if that matters any.
thank you in advance! please help me help others. help me help the kids.
