    No Mic Audio to Stream

    So after getting the needed chat cable that doesn't come along with the Elgato...(extra $10 on Amazon) my voice is heard from people in my party, but voice doesn't go through Stream. . even though the party can be heard... Super weird, but doesn't properly work! I'm using PS4 with wired headset to a controller, and a custom PC. Elgato says the only way around this ridiculousness is to invest in a desktop mic... (Blue Yeti - another $120)... So beware of extra 'costs' to get this working correctly....

    Records with great quality with a few drawbacks

    The Elgato HD60 S is great for recording gameplay! If you want to record anything else, though things start to get complicated. I had a project for class where I needed movie clips, and I wanted them at a super high quality, so I planned on using the Elgato to get the clips. The Elgato would not let me record the video because of how it was encrypted; HDCP. HDCP encryption will come from Blu Ray players, XBox Ones, Play Staytions (you can turn it off on Play Staytions), and even a cable box, and will only occur when something is copyrighted like a movie. Ignoring my issues with HDCP, the Elgato records at a great framerate, and the audio is also spot on.

    Okay, so first of all I am new to this game capture area. I bought the elgato hd 60 s based on features and reviews. Honestly its been awesome so far, the streaming, commentary and game capture is awesome, the only downside is the setup because their instructions are not the best, and also the settings on the software should have instructions for lets say xbox one , ps4, and such. Remember to buy the chat link cables on amazon, it doesn't come in the package so you have to buy it yourself to record game chat. I think thats a downer because the hd60 has it included but the 60 z doesn't. Overall its great for beginners , the software lets you customize the recorded videos as well. Also you have to really play with the balance between the volume of game chat, and game sound, lots of trial and error.
