How can I capture gameplay using BlueStacks 3?

XSplit Broadcaster allows you to directly capture gameplay from BlueStacks 3 to record or stream to the streaming platform of your choice.

Capturing gameplay from BlueStacks 3:

  1. On BlueStacks 3: Go to Settings and select the Engine tab and take note of your graphics mode settings.
    XSplit Broadcaster works on both DirectX and OpenGL graphics modes.
    For laptop users, selecting DirectX may give better performance.

  2. On XSplit Broadcaster: Go to Sources >Game capture, then select BlueStacks (DX11) or BlueStacks (OpenGL) depending on the engine settings you have chosen on BlueStacks 3.
    Selecting BlueStacks (DX9Ex) captures the BlueStacks 3 launcher instead of the gameplay.

  3. Launch a game in BlueStacks 3 and start streaming or recording.
