  • captinjodds gt 2 years ago

    Do you need a good laptop to stream? Also on your gaming monitor is there any lag from it going through the elgato? Or just as normal, I want to play on my tv and setup my laptop for the streaming

    I tried that ps4 remote play stuff and it was horrible.
    So to get everything right, before i pay much money:
    With all this in your video, u can play ps4/xbox directly on the monitor, like always, right? So u dont play ps4 more or less on the pc like that remote bullshit, right? So no delay at all and nothing will change when u play and stream COD for example. The elgato just records the ps4 for the pc (to stream it for example) without affecting a (online) game at all. Or did I get something wrong?
    pls help. ty 🙂

    So I'm not sure how my stream and I can hear the game at the same time. I have to output my game audio to my monitor for the stream to hear it, but if I do that, then my headset plugged into my controller doesn't catch the game audio. Any way to fix this so we can all hear everything?
