Hope this is in the right place and hope I can get some advice!
Basically I'm looking to record Xbox 360 gameplay in a decent quality to upload to youtube. I have a pretty awkward setup though.
Currently I play my Xbox 360 through a HDMI cable connected to a computer monitor. NOT a TV. And I use a laptop, albeit a pretty high spec 'gaming' laptop.
I've asked and looked around and came across numerous problems. I can't open up my laptop like I could a desktop so I can't use those internal capture cards I've seen. And since I don't have a TV I can't use the composite red/white/yellow cable from my Xbox to my TV.
I have been told that I may be able to use the Avermedia Game Capture HD, but I would need a powered splitter to transfer composite to VGA, so I could then put the VGA cable into my monitor.
It's all pretty complicated. Basically it would go something like...
Xbox --> Avermedia Game Capture using attached composite lead --> splitter using composite lead --> VGA cable from splitter into monitor.
Would this work? If not, why not? Any alternatives? Thanks a bunch for any responses and advice!
