Video Fuzzy, Noob Needs Help!

Question

Hello! I have been working with the Roxio Game Capture for some time now and I finally sat down and recorded some CoD . Everything looked perfect on the video feed, I had to mess with the audio for some time but no problems there but after I recorded about over 2 hours of game play, MY VIDEO IS ALL FUZZY!!!!! So I switched to a different game and the same thing!!!!! I have no idea how to fix this and I hope this post is up in the right subject, but if anyone knows how to fix this that would be amazing!!!

 

Working with and Xbox 360, 1080i and not to sure about my laptop I'm working with but I know I did just recently purchase it. all cords are perfect and well working. I have zero Idea of what I am doing.

I have the standard game capture and the set up is basic, I use an xbox 360 slim on HD and have it properly connected into the standard capture card and everything plugged into my TV for HD use. Standard set up like I said, picture is crystal clear on my TV and on the viewing screen on my computer. Yet when I was finished recording I noticed everything was fuzzy, and VERY hard to even see the video (Not including the overly loud audio boost of the video). There is no flickering going on as I noticed many others have had that issue but nothing like that has happened. My video quality did not come out as I viewed it on the TV and viewing screen. I hope this helps with what you asked.

What SETTINGS are you using for Capture? (in Options)

 

If you right click the file and look at the Details under its' Properties, what is the resolution and bitrate?

I note that you have the Game Capture Standard. As such, it only records in standard definition, and when you play that back on a Hi-Def screen, it's going to look pretty fuzzy. Standard definition is 720x480. And I suspect it adds black bars to the top and bottom of the image, so you're only capturing at about 1/3 of the resolution that you're playing at. That's pretty much what you'll get with the Game Capture Standard.

Data Rate is at a 28776kps, and my Bit rate is 1536kps.

And the resolution? (Should be two numbers separated by an "x", as in, "720 x 480".)

I'm sorry I am not seeing something like that when I go to look for it.

Okay... much as expected. And that's your answer. You have the Roxio Game Capture, not the Roxio Game Capture HD Pro.

 

Your device captures in Standard Definition, 720x480. If you watch that in "native resolution" (a small 720x480 box on your screen) it will look reasonable. As soon as you stretch/scale it up to a bigger screen, it's going to look fuzzy.

 

There is no "fix" because it's working as designed.

Ah okay I see now, So is there anyway to get a clearer picture? I don't mind like top notch quality but I would like at least to record something you can see without having to take one look at it and being like nope nope nope! also would it help to show a screencap of how fuzzy it actually is?

Well again, watch in a small window, like the typical Youtube unexpanded window size, and you'll probably find it looks pretty sharp. You just can't blow it up and expect anything sharp.
