AGPTEK 1080P HD Video Capture Live Streaming Video w/Game Capture : Works great, with an HDMI splitter at least

Does what it says on the tin. It records gameplay 1080p and it’s very easy to use all you have to do is plug it in, put a usb drive in and then press the red button and it starts to record just like that.

Paid only £10 more than a china based item in e bay, came next day. Watch a video on youtube for installation and away you go. Simple set up and quality playback i was delighted. Haven’t used the mic socket but it’s there and during recording will record your voice. Honestly, i think if you want to record playback and edit before upload then this is as good as elgato. This does not live stream but who cares, it’s great.

Bought 1 unit for church to run signal from the back of the room to the hdmi tvs on stage. Distance is 100 feet so ran 120 feet cat6 flat cable and worked great.

This is a very good hd capture device, i do not use it for gaming devices but for my hd car camera which is attatched to my window and used as a cctv camera, i use a 128 gb memory stick ntfs format and that gives me over 12 hours recording, hd cam in and hd out to my tv for monitoring. Works well with any hd device which has an hd output.

Excellent, works well as /dev/videox frame grabber in linux.

Works like an absolute charm so long as you have a fat32 formatted usb drive. I found exfat and ntfs will work but intermittently. As long as you have a fat32 usb drive this is an amazing piece of kit for the price. As an addendum, if you plan to edit in sony vegas you will need to convert the container of the finished recordings in vlc or similar to be able to edit.

Fantastic capture card at an unbeatable price. I bought this to replace my old broken capture card and i wanted something cheap so i decided to take the plunge and pick up this device. I recorded my footage to a memory stick and it looks great (i’ve posted links to two sample videos i posted to youtube so you can see what the footage actually looks like once uploaded)the box is very small and very easy to set up (i’ve not used software yet nor have i tried to record mic audio but will do soon)i found that the in game audio can be slightly out but nothing drastic on some of my test recordings. I do plan on using a harddrive direct to device moving forward and maybe this will resolve this slight problem but the picture is very clear and i’m overall very, very happy with the device. Again, i’ve provided links to footage below so you can see real time results. Will be posting some older console footage captured with this card to.

Works great for xbox 360, you need to set your xbox 360 to 720p to record, delivery was with me by the next day which was over a weekend, fantastic.

For some reason i had to partition my 1tb hard drive so it would work with the capture card. Apart from that, this thing has worked flawlessly.

The recording function is very simple to use and reliable. The recording quality is very high, no frames of video are missed as files are split due to usb stick os limitations. It is then easy to join the files back together on a pc, and even re-code them to make the file size smaller. I use high performance usb3 usb sticks so that the videos copy faster to the pc, but even using generic usb2 sticks, i have had no issues. I have not used the pass-through or analog options, so cannot comment on them.

A decent little device that produces good quality capture using an hdmi cable. Be aware though, you can only use the option for an external mic to record at the same time if you are using the analogue video input not the hdmi one.

My son is using it now and he said it is working as he’s expected only thing is the mic didn’t work for him but maybe the mic is faulty or some connection/compatibility error.

Super easy to use and creates great looking videos. Pretty simple to get running for twitch etc. Build quality speaks for itself, amazing.

Perfect for the nintendo switch. Literally plug and play records 1080p and picture is great. Not tried mic yet as he’s not got one. Son uses it for his youtube videos. If you wanted to see the quality search ‘theyoung gamer’ and see it for yourself. No issues as of yet we’ve put a 32gb memory stick in and not filled it yet biggest video he’s done was 16 minutes and still loads left. Great bit of kit for under half price of the branded ones. Not tried with any other consoles yet so can’t comment on them.

Great product, very clear picture and sound. We used it on our ps4 and setup was very straight forward. Highly recommended if you want to see some footage you can check out our review here.

If you’re in the market for a hd capture device and don’t want to jump to elgato prices this is the device for you. – the recording quality is pretty close to the more expensive devices and you can change the bitrate on the fly. – this device adds an interface which allows you to watch the videos you have just recorded meaning you don’t have to plug out your flash drive and connect it to a pc. – there are built in functions to control the input and mic volumes as you record meaning you can record let’s plays without editing. – a powerful pc is not required as the files are recorded straight to flash storage.

I’m plesently shocked with this box. Straightforward to established up will work with pc. Xbox one and ps4 which i have. Mic input audio was very quiet but i use a different software program to record my commentary. I would say if your a starting off a youtube channel go with this.

This does a improved job than the avermedia lgx if you have the usb bandwidth (involves usb3. ), while the lgx has improved compatibility i located. Sadly, the move-as a result of on this does anything to the signal so that the color ends up around-dazzling and loses a ton of detail. The lgx wasn’t immune to this either, downgrading color to yuv422 format, and introducing obvious color fringing, so pick your poison i guess. Oddly, the color in the capture on this is best, so not absolutely sure what they have carried out with the go-by. Is effective wonderful with an hdmi splitter though (eliminating the have to have for a pass-by) and the income you conserve about some thing like the lgx lets you get this, a splitter, and have a couple of quid spare. Getting to prevent avermedia’s awful, bloated software package is another bonus. Construct high-quality isn’t amazing, but satisfactory. The unit by itself is significantly scaled-down than i was expecting. If the passthrough failed to degrade the sign, this would’ve surely been a 5-star assessment.

I am utilizing three of these in collection among digicam and hd check. They give recordings of rugby games for coaches and match officials straight after game.

Wonderful little product for receiving begun recording games.

Extremely simple to capture movie from hdmi to usb memory. Mainly because the ac adapter for this merchandise is bf variety for british isles, i furthermore have to have to have plug changer to c style in sweden.

Functions wonderful but wanted an extra hdmi splitter to use with sky box. Basically connect inline with system hdmi output, insert usb memory stick and press file button – simple as thati’ve made use of the video clips in imovie (osx) to build motion pictures or take out ads from recorded programmes.

    Generates very good quality hd video files. The no_split option allows the generation of single file videos, provided that the usb storage is formatted into ntfs format.

    If you’re using this for recording gameplay on an xbox one and you don’t know too much about capture cards, then make sure you do research first. This isn’t as simple as plug in and play, the capture card won’t work with your xbox one as the xbox is protected by something called hdcp. So you need a hdmi splitter to strip the hdcp so that the capture card will actually work. So before purchasing this make sure you have hdmi splitter, not a switcher, a splitter, and look at a tutorial on how to set it up. Edit: forgot to mention, you need a formatted fat32 usb, you can’t just plug in any usb, it had to be fat32, or it won’t work. Any local computer shop should format it for you for free.

    I streamed for a out three hours the day i got it. It took me a little while to get the settings perfect, settling on 4500kbps, 1080p 60 capture to 1280x720p 60 output from obs to twitch, just because my upload isn’t great and this laptop is not super powerful video-wise, looks great and to be dead honest i had less trouble with this than my elgato hd60 that i returned in october. Works great with obs, and i don’t need to use elgatos awful application. Streamed from my xbox one x, very happy with this purchase.

    This hdmi capture card works on my imac and windows with latest version of obs studio. When it’s running under mac, there is quite noticeable compression artifact in the preview window. I believe it’s something related to the only mjpeg codec available which might be driver issue under mac. This is not happening under windows, i would assume h264 works there.

      1. This is the first game capture card i’ve used and straight out of the box this has been simple to use. The quality of the recording is great and even without the additional fps it looks just as good to me. I have mainly been using this on the wii u and purchased some composite cables for use with some older consoles without hd output but found problems with the video output so i just purchased a cheap upscaler and that has worked great. I am just hoping it will work with the switch when i eventually get it because i know some people have had issues. The only issue i have is that there is no indicator of when a continuous recording has splitted into a new file because each save only holds about 17mins of footage. But to add to this, the transition from one clip to the next in a split recording is pretty seemless and a full file is about 1. 6gb so i recommend getting a large memory stick if you don’t plan to transfer files straight away. I have yet to use the editing software that came with in the box as i’ve been happy using what i already have. Also the hdmi that was included in the box is quite short so if you don’t have spare you’d probably need a longer one. Overall i’m very happy with my purchase and would recommend if you don’t care about live streaming.
