Hello, all. Now that the new gen is here, I can finally afford a PS3 for all those JRPGs I missed out on.....and Persona 5 of course ;)
I would like to stream/record my gameplay for my friends as I already stream my PC gamesplays using OBS. I have read up on this and I am a bit confused. With the PS3, there is the HDCP issue and I read that it is hard to bypass. It requires you to buy some expensive HDCP strippers or something like that. I did some more reading and some stated that this Avermedia can do it, others have said this Elgato is the easiest and best way to stream/record the PS3. I definitely need some advice on this. The Elgato is not a card so my desktop will have to do the work. I think it can handle it. Intel i5-3570k / AMD HD 7850.
Also, I have one monitor I use, this one. Do I HAVE to get another one? The monitor has a hotkey to swap between DVI, VGA and HDMI inputs. So, I was thinking to have my PC hooked up via DVI and the PS3/Capture Device via HDMI. That way I can swap between the PS3/PC if I need to configure the settings. As far as monitoring the stream, I have a laptop so I can view it from there. Any replies is appreciated.....even if it's to laugh at me for being late to own a PS3...hahaha....
