    did i just get a virus handout software coming from that first website because it asked me to download 479 different files because i have a windows 7, (apparently it’s easier to use for work than windows 10 so that’s how it was kept before it was given to me)

    why when i put game capture its a black screen? someone help pwease

  • Pedro Rodriguez 7 months ago

    Thanks for the video! Definitely made this process feel less overwhelming! My only question is… which capture card are you using? It’s really the last purchase I need and I’m confused about one thing… wouldn’t I need a capture card to have two inputs (1 camera and 2 gaming device)? Or am I connecting my camera directly to my pc? Thanks in advance!

    What do you use to screen record and for editing?

  • Robert Burwood 7 months ago

    My early experience with OBS compared to StreamYard is the challenge of adding wireless cameras (ie smartphone) or a webcam/stream from a networked computer/user. Like adding a guest in StreamYard or Zoom for example.
