Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don`t think it was worth it I brought this to record videos for my youtube channel however dislike how certain volumes can make audio painful and ear splitting. I was unfortunant enough to lose the manual so was dissapointed that no online help or online manual was presented.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says, unnecessarily complicated however Took around an hour of just setting up due to lack of clear instructions. A few logically arranged sentences could save a lot of trouble. Once set up, it worked fine. The software that comes with it is very easy to use. This is ideal for capturing gaming on a basic level, e.g. can be used to learn basics about game capture. Anyone that's serious I would recommend purchasing an HD device. For anyone having trouble with the setup (i.e. getting the VivaStation "no device" message), check these: - Video IN and Audio IN is where the device (Xbox 360 etc.) is plugged in. V/A OUT is where the TV is plugged in. - Ensure the device is set up accordingly to the capture device - it captures in 480p at 50/60hz, on my Xbox dashboard settings I have changed this in the Display Settings - Once everything is setup, unplug the USB from your computer device and then plug it back in again. This is just to check the device's drivers have installed themselves (again, not clearly instructed) My laptop is 4 years old and is capable of capturing Xbox 360 footage so compatibility and Specification should not be an issue. Small and light. Not the easiest to setup. No light on device to show if it's working/active. Once setup, it becomes very easy to capture footage. Sound quality is decent. Video quality is as good as 480p allows. Capturing is easy, just press record and then hit it again when you're done. File format and location can be selected before you record. Once you stop recording the file is ready and can be viewed instantly (e.g. on VLC player) Bought it because I was interested in capturing and uploading gameplay. Honestly was worth the money but only because it was at half price (?30)

Will this record voice through an internal or external microphone?

Asked by: Unkown
This would require an external mic for example, if recording through an XBOX this would use the headset that is connected to your controller.

Can you add voice-over or webcam to it? Also can you livestream from it?

Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee full compatibility for this item, as this is not the manner for which it was designed to be used.
