Two PC Streaming or Recording without a CaptureCard

Today a slightly different setup than usual. We will use two PC’s for this without the need of using a CaptureCard. Lets see our requirements: First PC Second PC Good CPU(i7) or Quicksync or NVEnc or another HW Encoder Good CPU (i5/i7) The stream is being mainly produced on the first PC.

Professional Event Setup – Several Cameras, PC’s and a Master Server

Now both setups had the idea of producing two different Streams for two different Games. But if you want to do a professional Main Stage stream for example, with multiple Cameras, live footage of all players (in the example two) and footage of both commentator PCs you might want to use a dedicated PC which is able to receive all...

Server Event Setup – USB Cameras, Server and Streamers

So lets say the Event Camera has to be far away from the Commentator booths and you want to use a possibly cheap setup without too many capture cards. In this case you could setup a small lan-server to receive the Event Camera footage for example. (Remember you will need a PC to send the Event Camera footage to this...

Simple Event Setup – One Event Camera, Several Streamers

In this example we want to stream 2 different Games, each being commentated by different persons. The commentators use a Webcam on their PC’s and in this example a Capture Card to receive the Event Camera footage. To get the Event Camera footage to two locations you can simply use a HDMI splitter in this case.One thing to note though:...

Simple two PC Setup – Capture Card, no Video-splitter

This setup is not as complicated as it looks, as the “Main Audio Device” I use my “Onboard Sound”.

In this case my “USB Soundcard”. Any sound that is played...

Two PC Setup – Capture Card, no Video-splitter, Two-Soundcards/Audio Outputs

My setup is quite simple, as the “Main Audio Device” I use my “Onboard Sound”. The only important thing, it has a “Stereo Mixer” which can be set to output to any audio device (use as playback device in options). In this case my “USB Soundcard”. Any sound that is played over the “Standard Output Deice” (Music/Games/Teamspeak) will be sent...

Two PC or one PC and Console Setup – Capture Card, Splitter, different Sound options

The setup is not as complicated as it may look, it depends on your usage, if you need two microphones or one for example. In this case one would send your voice to your teammates and the other would send it to your viewers. Using the HDMI connector of my graphics card I could also send the audio to my capture...
