I’m retracting my previous statements made in several posts this year.. I have mastered XSplit Broadcaster and I tried Stream Labs, Stream Yard, OBS and the list goes on. XSplit and it’s seamless integrations of elegato stream deck on my ipad along with Skype has made me a fan.
In terms of recording high quality audio and video when trying to create a video podcast as a beginner on a budget, I needed to look into what my options were for using my JLAB Talk Pro as audio input and a camera not built into my laptop. The problem is somewhat my fault and somewhat me becoming an Adobe Creative Cloud dominate person, any software that I try to use that’s not like I learned on frustrates me heavily. I needed to try out some of the software programs that people have been using to stream video games on twitch and other platforms to see if I could do what I wanted to do.
Another challenge for me was that I wanted to incorporate a sound board into my podcast. As a fan of the Drew and Mike Podcast I felt that adding drops would be sick.
The Elgato Stream deck will not plug and play into Adobe Audition as an audio source. It doesn’t have the capability, so in order for me to use this as a sound board I needed to learn OBS or XSplit. Here’s the deal I didn’t actually look into how to a stream app as a recording software. I actually hadn’t gone past using Audition or Premiere Pro. Now I have become obsessed with using XSplit.
First off Let’s Review XSplit Broadcaster-
A powerful user interface offering limitless customization.
- Simply drag, drop and resize a multitude of media sources like images, videos, GIFs and web pages! Add Skype calls with just a click or screen capture your Zoom, Teams, or Discord calls!
- XSplit Broadcaster is more than just a screen recorder. Manage everything from a single monitor with the In-Game HUD or use multiple displays with our projector mode. Using OBS? Use our OBS Importer to get you started.
- Start streaming to any of the top broadcast platforms with our native plugins or use Custom RTMP to stream to any platform. You can stream and record multiple outputs at once as well as use our built-in Chat plugins as well as using browser source to add web pages designed for live streaming alerts.
XSplit makes it way easier to add in Skype Calls, you just simple upgrade your Skype download to Skype for creators. OBS its more complicated and somewhat annoying. XSplit way better at integration’s for making a podcast or online talk show.
Im making this post because Im impressed I figured this out..
TIME TO PROVE I CAN ACTUALLY BE AN ENGINEER.
