    This year, my dorky goal for the year is to learn more about streaming and video content. I decided I'd like to stream GBA games to twitch.tv and was planning to use my Game Boy Player for Game Cube and a dazzle capture device. Then I realized that there is actually a capture card for the original Nintendo DS which is SUPER affordable and an easier setup for my small downtown one bedroom apartment than capturing from Game Cube, and if I went that route, I would be able to stream GBA games AND Nintendo DS games (I have a larger Nintendo DS library than Game Cube). Just wondering does anybody use the 3dscapture.com capture card for the original Nintendo DS? Any thoughts? Protips? Anybody stream Nintendo DS (not 3DS) on twitch? Could a monkey install this themselves or should I pay somebody to put it in for me? I'd love to talk with like minded people about my dorky plans, I'm a good basic computer user but both excited and slightly overwhelmed with my upcoming plans, so I'd love to make a few buddies who are at least sympathetic if not interested in helping if I get stuck ;)

    wouldn't it be better to just stream a DS emulator from the PC?

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    Nintendo's policy on emulators is seen as illegal in their eyes, they would slap you with a DMCA takedown of your twitch account when it comes into their sight.

    As long as you got the actual game and hardware, nintendo can't really do shit to you, for now. That is why having video capture hardware is the safe route.

    That is what games done quick does, they use video capture hardware to stream their runs.

    This all applies to twitch, on youtube the nintendo creator program bullshit applies.
