What's the best game streaming software for Twitch?

#1HeroicSomaCruzPosted 6/8/2014 12:33:52 AM
I play primarily console games, but feel like integrating into PC gaming as well. I have an Elgato Game Capture HD for my console games, and I use its software for streaming my games. Not only would I like to start streaming PC games, but I would also like to use a webcam while doing so, and Elgato isn't giving me either of these options.

I tried XSplit Gamecaster, but they spam me with ads every time I start up, and won't let me use console streaming unless I subscribe. I don't even see an option for PC streaming. What are my other options?

Looking for something that's preferably free, but I want to know what the best options are regardless.

>Webcam and mic available
>PC streaming
>Console game streaming
>1080p
>Can stream at least 8.00 mbps.

I have had no end of issues streaming using OBS. As have all my friends and everyone else I've heard of that has used OBS. From twitch stream key issues to ludicrous lag/delay to low quality to excessive bandwidth usage, it's just not worth it even if it is free.

XSplit Gamecaster and the other version of Xsplit are by far your best options, even if you don't buy it. The few seconds of ads you have to deal with is a miniscule issue compared to the s*** you will deal with when using OBS.

Either that, or Shadowplay using a compatible Nvidia GPU. However, Shadowplay is still in beta and thus still has a few bugs, and at the moment it can't stream windowed games. Full screen games only and it doesn't like it when you alt tab either.

This except the opposite.

I use my Elgato to stream PC games. I just use my laptop to run the software.

How?

Also, is there a way to use webcam integration?
