Starting a live stream from scratch can be stressful. There is a need to learn from experienced gaming streamers and bloggers on what are some of their pain points and concerns when they first started. Things really can’t possibly get worse than doing a live stream for the first time, when things tend to go sideways, experiencing different kinds of streaming and technical issues.
Some of these issues include frame drops while streaming with OBS; failed live stream recording; smartphone screen goes black while live streaming; asynchronous sound; computer performance issue while live streaming and so on. For various reasons, it can be difficult to successfully stream the content you want from PC, smartphones, PS5, XBOX or Switch.
Upgrading to a streaming PC is unlikely the best option since it is not budget friendly.
With EZCast’s CatchU capture box, streaming has never been easier for beginners who wish to get into this profession. Considering its top 3 features, streamers of any experience can easily overcome the issues mentioned above.
Traditional video capture devices only support the process of transmitting HDMI videos to the computer in real-time, leaving the rest of the work up to the computer.
What most novice streamers are unaware of is that the computer in use of live streaming and recording might experience heavy workloads.
Having a powerful integrated SoC lets you accomplish many things with the capture box. In addition to transmitting HDMI displays in real-time, like most capture boxes do, EZCast CatchU is unique because it works as a standalone & simultaneous recorder. One-click to record real-time footage to external USB storage, and 1080/60p UVC output simultaneously.
Prior to the videos being ready for live streaming or recording, they will need to be encoded as well as having the raw video and audio data processed.
The video encoding process can use up large amounts of computing resources. Playing games and live streaming at the same time could lead to excessive use of hardware resources, making frame drops and blurred displays more likely to happen.
In the past, mobile game streamers have used docking stations to convert mobile displays into HDMI signals, which then get passed on by a capture box to the computer.
This process is not bad; however, it does not solve the inherent issues surrounding smartphone casting and capturing. Issues including unstable connections, black screens and difficulty setting up. There have been no convenient ways of streaming directly through a capture box.
EZCast incorporated its own developed wired screencasting technology into EZCast CatchU, allowing users to plug-and-cast instantly by connecting mobile charging cable directly to CatchU. CatchU can independently transfer the mobile display to the computer or have the mobile display recorded in an external hard drive.
