Plus, the included software lets you take screenshots, schedule recordings and instantly stream your video source over the Internet. The software is compatible with NTSC and PAL systems, which is perfect for professional video archiving applications where source media can change from project to project.

Constantly dropped connection to twitch

I was trying to livestream a wedding to Twitch and it was constantly dropping the connection every 20-30 seconds and then it would reconnect. With that kind of flakey connection, it was completely unusable. I ended up using a laptop and a hangouts livestream to youtube which worked perfectly (and proved the internet connection was not the issue). I can't comment on the SD card because I never used that feature. If you are considering this product for live streaming, you may want to look at Teradek.

Hello Jim, Thanks for your feedback and review. We are sorry for any inconvenience you encountered with this product and wanted to offer some assistance. When we originally launched the USB2HDCAPS product it did offer YouTube Live support. However, with YouTube Live still being a beta product, changes made to the Live service broke our ability to stream to YouTube Live. We made the difficult decision to remove support for YouTube Live with the USB2HDCAPS until Google/YouTube finalize the Live service and remove the beta tag, since more changes are likely to occur before then. We do however offer YouTube Live streaming functionality with our capture devices that use StreamCatcher software. Information of which products use StreamCatcher and therefore work with YouTube Live can be found here: https://www.startech.com/faq/video_capture_cards_stream_catcher_youtube We hope this helps and should you have any further questions of concerns please get in touch with our Technical Advisors by clicking "Support" at the top of our wbesite. Thank You.
