I'm a gamer like the res.... most of you. I record video's, mostly of glitches that I find. I now have this wonderful PC, Famine that I had Shadow build for me and because of it, a growing PC library. I've encountered problems recording Steam games though so I'm looking for some idea's. Normally my Hauppauge is hooked up to my TV and my computer. My console is hooked up to the Hauppauge. If I want to record my computer screen or in the past broadcast to my TV, I would just take the output from my console and plug it into my laptop. That doesn't seem to work with Famine. The last time I tried it, it seems ti have just recorded my desktop even though I made my TV my main monitor. One Idea I had was to jut have my laptop set up separate and have it as a recoding device. All I would have to do is unplug the USB cable from Famine and plug it into that. The problem with that is I'd have to have 2 computers always turned on to record and play games as well as finding room for a second mouse. My laptop is a piece of shit. It gets hot as hell, doesn't have a lot of storage and runs slow. Just the other day I booted it up to use Fire Fox and it froze trying to load 1 tab. On a side note. Does anybody have any recommendations for a mic that's decent and doesn't cost a fortune, audio recording software and a video editing program that's not a piece of shit? I don't intend to edit all my video's but combining some of the smaller ones into a compilation, cutting off parts I don't need and commentating occasionally would be nice. It would also be nice to have a webcam and mic for Skype. Even more of a side note. While I was plugging my computer into my Hauppauge to perform some tests, I hit the record button. I don't know if the software updated or it was something I did but the entire interface has changed now. Edit: I don't know how I got that second recording option booted up from hitting the button. Apparently there's 2 recording programs on my computer for the Hauppauge. I'm going to mess around with this second one to see which I like more.
