  1. So if you watch the HD PRO trailer on the Roxio website it shows a full screen webcam/video of the commentator that "shrinks" up to the left corner of the screen and stays there. I can't seem to find any way to actually do this with the VideoWave software. To me it appears that the commentation video is an overlay on top of the main game video. Then the commentation video is "shrunk" up to the left corner - and continues through the gameplay. As far as I can tell - VideoWave does not have any way to actually do this with overlays!! There are lots of different types of motion that can be added to overlays but they are either at the start or end of the overlay - nothing in the middle of the overlay - which is what is actually happening in the trailer. At some point in the video it is "shrunk" to the upper corner but stays overlayed onto the game video. Does anyone know how to actually do that with this software?? I've read the entire help document and spent several hours with the tool - still don't think there's a way to produce that effect!!!
  2. So after using Vaughn Whiskey's JTVPing tool I decided to select the server that had the best ping. I was getting choppy results. Basically it would stream, then pause, stream, then pause. After selecting the 2nd best ping location all of my issues of stutter went away. I am now able to stream clearly on Twitch.Tv at 480p (default bit rate setting). I have 50down/15up internet speeds. I am still sad that Xsplit still does not work with the Roxio HD Pro though At least Black Ops 2 has an option to turn on your web cam during league play though - so you can actually see your web cam and your game while you stream. -Embalmer
  3. Thanks Ivan for the feedback however - The intro video was created within Videowave and is in fact - not a video at all. I just added a black "Color Panel" and added text effects over it- all done within Videowave. I used the "Insert Color Panel" option to do so. I will most likely do this for all of my videos - Is there a different work around? Is now a good time to "request" a feature added that allows us to choose which resolution we would like to upload to Youtube with? Thanks again.

    In-Game Chat Audio For Xbox 360

    Gaper1 is correct. HOWEVER: If you use a program like windows recorder you can record your own voice on you PC during the game... then overlay it with VideoWave. That is the only current workaround.

    Hdmi Passthrough Not Working Unless Connected To Pc

    This was also added to the FAQ. This is apparently by design.
  16. So when I first unboxed my new HD PRO I connected my HDMI cables up and noticed that the passthrough did not work without power to the device. I figured this was normal since HDMI passthrough or splitter devices require power to work. Just out of curiosity I plugged the Roxio HD USB cable into the front of my XBOX Slim to see if the passthrough would work. It did not. After installing the software on my laptop, I plugged the USB into my laptop and surprisingly the passthrough still did not work. I then launched the Roxio Game Capture software and wallah! Passthrough worked...had the image on my TV and all was good. I clicked the Capture button and also had the preview window working. Excellent. I also noticed that AFTER the intial launch of the software - passthrough now works WITHOUT launching the Roxio Game Capture software - BUT I am still required to plug the device into my laptop. Sadly the XBOX USB port still does not allow the device to run it's passthrough. I am required to use a PC USB port for passthrough to work. Now - you might wonder - what's the problem with that? It works right?? Well.. yes BUT - in order to leave the device attached and play video games I am now required to either A) disconnect the roxio device and re-route HDMI cables or Plug the roxio device into my laptop for power. I don't want to always have to do either of those. I would prefer to just leave the device attached and plug it into the front of my xbox when I'm not capturing anything. This way I don't have to fiddle with the HDMI cables between uses and I can always leave it attached. Does anyone know if there is not enough current from the XBOX to supply enough power for passthrough to work? I know all USB ports use a 5v power supply - but I'm not sure about how much current is being provided. Or I am curious if it's just my XBOX Slim or if the passthrough is only supposed to work via PC by design. Roxio?? I do have another XBOX Elite Console in my house - I will try and see if that one works tonight.

    Disconnected From The Internet During Stream

    Yea, your network upload is getting overloaded it seems. You will have to drop your stream bitrate/resolution down to a level your network can sustain. You might want to check what your max upload speed from your provider is supposed to be - and possily look into router issues if it "should" be fast enough.

    Quality On Goes Up To 480P On Yt?

    I uploaded directly from within VideoWave to Youtube & Facebook and the max resolution was 480p (that was uploading a 1080p Production). When I upload outside of VideoWave (manually) - it uploads at the full 1080p. I wish VideoWave had some more settings to adjust the auto-upload quality - but for now - it doesn't.

    Twitch.tv/jtv Ping Test

    Good to know. Thanks for the post.
  20. The Service Pack 1 update has aleviated man of my issues. I do still get intermittant freeze ups during streaming - this usually goes away if I stop the stream and re-start it. My bandwidth is a 4mb upload stream but the Roxio bandwidth tester only shows me around 600-625Kbps - which means I should only stream at 240p (or 512kbps). The next step up is 360p or 768 kbps. I'm still a bit confused since my speedtest shows 4 Mbps....

    Hdmi Passthrough Not Working Unless Connected To Pc

    Ok... so no go on the XBOX Elite USB power supply. I noticed passthrough only works when connected to a PC WITH the Roxio drivers installed. The device will not passthrough anything until you connect it to a PC with the right drivers on it. I know this because I plugged the USB into a different port on my PC - no passthrough until AFTER the driver installation was completed. So - there ya go. Forever need a PC connected or no passthrough Jim - no special setup here - pic attached.

    Xsplit And Roxio Game Capture Hd Pro

    Ok, well it is freezing...but once every 10 seconds or so...and it's just a 1 second pause... a bit annoying but 100x better than it was. This is at 240p - lowest setting. The freezing get's a lot worse if I use 360p 480p... They are better than it was before but not really usable with the freezes. At a 4MB upload speed, I would think I had enough bandwidth. The updated added a bandwidth checker - which is nice - but I'm only averaging 600Kbps with that tool... which means I need to stay at 240p anyway. Possibly my only issue now may be with my bandwidth - and Xsplit Thanks for the update Ivan.
