Short version: Looking for some advice on a capture device for streaming gameplay from a console, something under $50-$60 is the budget range. I don't need something with uber quality but I would prefer it to have a respectable lifespan and of average quality. I use composite cables with all of my consoles and as I understand it from researching cheaper capture devices, that's rather standard for capture USBs and isn't a problem for me. Long version: OH MY GOD I HATE SIXTH GEN EMULATION SO MUCH! Today, I tried to do a Wind Waker playthrough on Dolphin and not only does DSP LLE lag horrendously on my machine (which is groan-worthy enough, nothing should ever lag on my machine) but when I turned it off to make the game playable despite putting up with sound inaccuracies, the game froze on Windfall Island, making me have to do the fortress again, and when I re-enabled LLE after reading that it can fix blackscreens, the game froze. So then I spent roughly an hour trying to get the 64x version to work, since I run a 64x OS, but for some reason the 64 bit version just doesn't want to work and no suggestion has been helpful It worked before, one time, but never again. I honestly suspect Dolphin of corrupting DLL files but have no proof other than its outward behavior. And this is not the only frustration I have with emulators either, it just happens to be the straw that broke the camel's back. Not to rag on the developers, because I'm certain they are trying their hardest, but emulating 6th gen consoles is beyond frustrating. Half the games I want to stream, even when I rip them myself, don't work properly because post-processing doesn't work or it uses some obscure function of a console nobody knows anything about or it gets its graphical effects from some glitch that's hard to duplicate or some other reason that basically boils down to: Consoles don't work like PCs. The only way to even get some games to run without incredibly jarring graphical problems is to run them in software mode, and then your tradeoff is basically proper graphical emulation for horrible game-breaking lag. Want to run Okami with proper post-processing effects? We'll just cut your framerate in half, good luck LPing that! So TL;DR I'm tired of 6th generation emulators and the migraines they induce. Since I want to stream lots of games, I'm willing to grab a cheap device that will let me do this. The two devices I've seen being recommended the most are easycam and dazzle, the latter either being recommended over the former or being labelled as something to avoid because it doesn't last very long. I'm curious to know if anyone can recommend either one or another USB I haven't seen yet. As an aside, I have no idea if this is the right subforum for this kind of question, but it seemed like the best place to ask. Sorry if I happened to miss the right subforum in my nerd rage.
