XSplit Broadcaster works on both DirectX and OpenGL graphics modes. For laptop users, however, selecting DirectX may give better performance..

  1. 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 4 launcher instead of the gameplay.
