    What's a good external usb capture device that allows streaming, for AV, and/or for HDMI consoles?
    I currently have a device that accepts both AV and HDMI input, records to a SD card, and outputs back to HDMI, but it isn't recognized by my computer so it can't be used for streaming.
    My question is, is there another all in one that actually works with something like xsplit? I looked around and none that claimed they could stream actually had good reviews. If there's none that do both AV and HDMI, what's the best AV capture device for streaming, and what's the best HDMI one?
    Preferably external. Not looking to mod my laptop.

    Can that do things like N64 or gamecube as well? I see it says it has a component adapter, but want to be sure what it's saying.
