Alright, so of late I've begun to take an interest in performing live-shows, of popular video-games; much like some other folks we all know and love. I've mainly been thinking of doing a Witcher 2, and possibly a Dark Souls play-through; all in live-format, that ofcourse, could be caught later on a site like youtube.
I'm also attempting to convince my friends to purchase Guild Wars 2 and strive to get a DOTA 2 account and have as such, decided, that if I could perhaps show them a match, or some beta footage and walk them through it, they would be more inclined to make the leap.
Now; from a technical aspect, I've got all that I require. Great hardware, fantastic connection; sufficient to run a high definition live-stream. What I lack, however, is the correct software to do so. I downloaded a program called Livestream Procaster, and while it worked nigh-on flawlessly, it required a license in order to broadcast HD videos. And The Witcher 2 in low-res just seems like a kick to the balls. A license that costs 250 bucks. (YIKES!) So, is there any free-ware, or any cheaper software, which can broadcast HD, you guys could recommend to me? I wouldn't mind a bit of advertisement, etcetera; long as the broadcast itself is of high quality. I'd also like to hear some inputs on good software for simply recording game-footage. There's many of them; but telling which is good and which is great comes across as a fool's quest.
So, yes; inputs? Help? Suggestions? I do require it. And I'd ofcourse post links and times for the live broadcasts here on the site incase anyone would be interested. Think of it as proto-quicklooks. Much appreciated, fellas.
This is Do The Manta Ray, being cool at your school, signing out.
Ps. SERIOUSLY, HELP ME!
