    Fantastic bro

    I'm getting pixelated streams using display capture. Using a 27"iMac 5k but rescaled output to 1920×1080.

    I'm obviously missing something silly so hope you can help.

    I'm cropping the display but not too much but it's something to do with that I suppose´╗┐

  • Enrique Perez 5 years ago

    I have a really old macbook pro (late 2010). I didn't check compatibility of all the equipment and software yet, but do you believe using my 2.4Ghz, dual-core i7 processor, with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 330M 512MB is feasible to capture video at 1080p 60FPS, or should I upgrade first?

    Great video! short, easy to follow, and putting all the technicals aside. LIKE for sure!´╗┐

  • NVMYROYALTY 5 years ago

    My elgato won't change to 1080p60. Its stays on 720p60. But in the HD settings it's saying input HDMI , profile HD 1080 . I have the elgato HD60S also on iMac late 2013. Any idea why it won't change up top in device.´╗┐

  • Unlike Aik 5 years ago

    Really great video. Inspired me to stream again. I wish ElGato would just upgrade their Mac software so Mac users wouldn't need OBS for Twitch Alerts and all those other good features PC has. All these programs kill my laptop. #updateMacElGato2016´╗┐
