Video Capture & Editing


Elgato Game Capture HD enables you to record PlayStation or Xbox gameplay to a Mac or PC and share it with your friends and fans. With advanced hardware H.264 encoding, you can capture in stunning HD quality, while keeping the file size low.

The gameplay is passed through to the TV via HDMI - in pristine quality, without delay. Elgato Game Capture HD doesn't need a lot of cables or even a power supply to record your game: With direct Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 input, you can use a single cable to connect it to your console.

The included software makes it easy to capture every move you make, even if you forget to press the record button: The unique Flashback Recording feature lets you timeshift your gameplay, so that you can simply slide back in time on your Mac or PC and hit the record button retroactively. With one click, you can share your gameplay with your friends and fans on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Even better, the tailor-made Elgato Game Capture HD software allows you to quickly trim your gaming scenes and pass them on to your favorite editing software.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as intended.

Pros: - Small enough to fit in a pocket
- Backwards-compatible all the way to NES
- Great picture quality (take it from a high-end PC gamer)
- In line with what's marketed on the product page

Cons: - HDMI cable could be a bit longer
- Can't record and play on the computer (Must record on the computer and play on the TV. This means you'll either be carrying around a desktop or a laptop).

4 out of 5 eggsVery good Capture card

Pros: - Amazing Software, best capture software I've seen.
- Very easy to install, plug in and your ready to go. No additional driver file needed.
- 30 bitrate higher than other capture cards on the market.
- Very good picture quality
- Works well with PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 & Xbox One.

Cons: - lack of choices with container file, you only get choice of MP4.
- Color is a bit washed out, You will be spending some time tweaking the color.
- No disc included, you need to download software from the website.

Other Thoughts: Great capture card for recording gameplay or just wanting to back-up your tv shows from your DVR. You can't go wrong with this card.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Device - Couple of Issues

Pros: Good video and audio quality with a lot of configurable parameters for both. Easy to connect as long as you have the right cables…and the device comes with a great array of cables to include s:video in/composite video with separate rca stereo inputs.

Cons: Device not recognized by Win 7 Pro (outside of its own native capture software) on three separate machines. There are no drivers with the device, or on the website for this device. There are drivers for the Video Capture and the EyeTV, but not the Elgato Capture HD. Ostensibly, Win 7 is supposed to just load the correct driver from the Win driver stockpile included in the OS. It didn’t on any of my machines. Documentation states that the device is compatible with Win 7 32/64 bit. Is it? Not on my three Win 7 Pro 64-bit machines.

While the native software is ok, it has one issue in particular that I needed to go with a third party streaming interface for: I have separate video and audio sources. Caveat-I understand that I am well outside of the main target audience here and my situation is unique and one of my own making.

- I am connecting my video camera to the Elgato hdmi in port for the video, but I want to capture my audio from a soundboard.
- My camera does not have an external mic input. Therefore I was piping the audio straight into line-in input on my computer while muting the camera mic.
- The native software “hears” the line-in audio but only ports it to the user’s commentary audio output, not to the game-source audio output. While I can just keep the camera audio muted and use the commentator audio from the soundboard, the video and the commentator audio are not in sync.
- This is an issue because the native software does not have any way to configure an audio delay from the commentary source in order to sync it up to the game-video.
- Thus, the need for Xsplit, OBS or even Adobe FMS
- I have tested a work around to running the soundboard audio through a series of adaptors into the “rca stereo inputs to s:video output” cable that is included with the device
- The composite video cables are left un-used while the s:video output is connected to the s:video input on the device. The camera feeds the hdmi video signal into the usb in port on the device simultaneously
- In theory then (tonight I test it for real), the device is receiving separate video/audio signals while syncing the two before sending both to the usb port in the computer where the native Elgato software can see them as coming from the same source in sync with each other

Other Thoughts: Still, the non-existent driver issue applies to anyone (including gamers) who wants to use any of the three applications that I simply cannot get to recognize my device. There are some incredible features in Xsplit and OBS that I would love to incorporate into my streaming later on such as adding additional video sources, PnP type stuff, a live chat etc…. These are not possible with the Elgato software unless I’m just missing something (a distinct possibility).

If anyone knows how I can fix the recognition issue, or where I can find a driver for the Capture HD device, I would be very grateful. If there is a problem with how I am trying to configure the third-party applications to see and access the device’s output and someone could point me in the right direction (I have spent two weeks perusing FAQs and forums on all involved manufacturer websites as well as youtube), I would be grateful.

Other thoughts: This is a GREAT product. Converters for live streaming a video camera signal run $300-$thousands. The price for this is half of the low end converter, easier to use, produces better video/sound than the more expensive converter that I RMA’d, and it’s a LOT easier to set up and configure.

The shortcoming that needs to be fixed across the board is device recognition and perhaps working with the big third party capture/streaming software companies to better ensure integration. The easier to use and integrate your hardware with someone else’s software, the better for customers, the better for you.

The issue of supporting external audio and synching it with the video feed is a product of my own manufacture, so I won’t gig the makers of Elgato Capture HD for that.

5 out of 5 eggsDefinitely worth it!

Pros: Very Good Quality. Easy to set up and works nicely on my PS3s. The computer program that comes with it is easy to use with regards to live streaming and editing.

Cons: Sometimes I get a HTTP request error when live streaming. Not too bad because I can get that fixed by restarting it. I'm streaming in under a minute again, but it gets a little annoying. Freezes sometimes but can easily restart without any damage.

4 out of 5 eggsoverpriced

Pros: records using HDMI for ps3 and xbox360
easy to use free software
fast encoding the compression for mp4

Cons: For ps3 you need to buy a HDMI splitter to record in 1080p.

Software sometimes messes up the frame rate when encoding, although the original footage is backed up.

Could be cheaper for a small video recorder that sends data through usb.

Other Thoughts: It works as advertised.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's an Elgato

Pros: It does exactly as it says. Great GUI. Easy to navigate. Easy to set up.

Cons: USB Cable is a little short if your console it not next to your computer.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend having your console next to the computer and having a long HDMI cable to run to the tv if it's not close to each other.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great
Great quality
Easy to use software
Flashback recording
Built in Twitch streaming
Supports almost anything with HDMI output (Including PC)

Cons: At the moment I cant figure out if it possible to stream at 60fps (which isn't really a big deal but its something I would like to do)

Other Thoughts: Due to HDCP most of the PS3 footage you capture will not look as sharp as other systems. Workarounds are possible but as of this review I have yet to try any.

2 out of 5 eggsNot bad quality, has some issues

Pros: Excellent quality if you have it at "Best" otherwise it looks grainy.. I used this for purely PC gaming to try it and see if it's better than just using software.. The video quality is great but the sound.... (View cons)

Cons: Loads of issues you can run into with the sound.. It was a paint trying to figure out how to record your voice and game play. Which if you don't have a headphone input on the monitor/display you have to use the Stereo mixer in the control panel and mix them, then in the Elgato software you have to use that as your game volume. Which I was having HUGE lag/delay's in the sound.. There was a 1-3 second delay in sound.

Also at times It would just stop recording, I would look over on my other screen and it was showing it was recording but when I went to it it was only a few seconds long and didn't record everything.

Other Thoughts: I don't know if I'm missing something or what, but if you're using this for PC gaming, DON'T! I'll just go back to using software until I can figure out the problems with the sound delays.. I wish the Elgato software had some type of a mixer in it..

2 out of 5 eggsWon't Work. Even though my computer meets the requirements.

Pros: Everything came in the box and product worked on another computer in my house.

Cons: Tried it on my computer that meets the hardware/software requirements. It connects, then disconnects. I Gave up on it. $180 down the drain.

Other Thoughts: Wish it would have worked.
