Streaming and Recording PC Games
XSplit Broadcaster is a great way to get creative with your streams and videos. It provides you with awesome features that will make streaming and recording videos convenient and easy. Here are some quick and easy steps to begin streaming and recording your PC Games on Broadcaster.
Adding your PC Gameplay
There’s a couple of ways you can capture your PC gameplay using XSplit Broadcaster. You’ll need to add it on your scene first through the Add Source menu.
Game Capture will automatically detect any game running on DirectX 9-12, Vulkan or OpenGL and will be added to your scene right away.
- Screen Capture lets you immediately capture what’s on your monitor through Monitor Capture while Window Capture will let you capture application windows on your Desktop.
It works great if your PC setup has multiple displays and we suggest using Screen Capture if you’re trying to capture games that aren’t compatible with Game Capture such as browser games.
Once you’ve chosen how to capture your game, you can resize and position your game source on the mixer.
Adding a Webcam Source
Next, you may also want to add a live video of yourself by using a webcam. Adding your webcam will be through the Add source menu as well then by going to Devices then Video then select your webcam. Just the same as the game source, you can drag and resize your webcam source to set it on your stream.
Hiding Sources and Source Settings
To hide a source, just click on the eye icon next to it on the source list.
Right-clicking on your source will open the source settings window where you can change various settings and properties of the source. Selecting it from the source list then clicking on Settings will also make this window appear.
Setting up your Broadcast Outputs
With your game and other sources added, you’re ready to set up your Broadcast outputs. First, go to Broadcast then Set up a new Output. Just select the streaming services you’ll be using and a setup wizard will be launched to help you create your Broadcast output.
