Best Game Capture Tools for Twitch Windows Central 2020
Streaming to Twitch is easy for PC games — you pretty much just need to download Open Broadcaster Software and use its Game Capture mode. However, things get a bit trickier if you want to show off a game you’re playing on an Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Nintendo Switch. You’ll need a capture card to connect your console to the computer you’re using to stream. You might even want one to connect two computers to improve your recording quality. Whatever your needs, these options will help you share your gaming with your fans.
Compatible with the PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360, the Elgato HD60 S uses a high-performance, reversible USB-C connector to let you start capturing gameplay quickly and easily. Record hours of gameplay and use it to add footage from your webcam, overlays, and alerts. You can also add your voice through a built-in live commentary feature.
If you’re getting serious about streaming on Twitch, you’re going to need the right equipment. The Elgato HD60 S is an excellent choice since it’s easy to set up, works with your PS4 and Xbox One, and makes it easy to add voiceover.
When you’re uncompromising about visuals and have money to spare, the AVerMedia Live Gamer Bolt will let you record in 4K and ultra-low latency. Just make sure to keep the drivers up to date to avoid any issues when you’re ready to play.
Whatever your streaming needs, one of these devices should help you get the quality footage you need to make your channel look great and help you build your follower base.
