  1. Ok so I couldnt get my stream up to 1080 without a long delay and even then it generally freezes... after looking at countless forums and never even seeing anything close to a real answer... I figured out that If I hadnt figured out how to do it through forums or roxio... well its an issue that I should think outside the box on... I have almost all software for video editing... none of it will capture the roxio but roxio hd software... so since I had been screen capturing with other software and devices before, it took me about five minutes once I gave up on using the streaming through the roxio software... literally I tried for months lost hours of footage... cried... did backflips... then in five minutes after giving up on streaming with this device and software... it was like I smacked myself.. here you go guys: 1)open up roxio hd 2)select capture 3)turn you settings to as high as freaking possible and make it as big as you want 4)get any software that allows streaming and screen capture for pc (I use camtasia studio 8) 5)set up your screen stream software to stream to where you like (make sure you can use it for your destination) 6)select stream desktop (or pc screen option for your software) 7)use the selection option and drag the box over the preview in roxio 6)start streaming through the new software and you will get the full quality minimal if any lag and no glitching at all... I know right.... add a pc mic to your headset with velcro or tape lol.. you can even add live audio.. I know right! You can honestly even capture still with the roxio to edit etc. later... I havent tried to capture still I just use it for my streams but I'd imagine it should be fine.. unless you get a device conflict... you would be using alot of resources so you would want a good computer... I am not running anything special. I got the roxio so I had something portable without needing a power source and hdmi pass through... I use my pc with el gato at home with tons of stuff connected and its a pain to dismantle and el gatos are great but expensive (almost twice the price of roxio).. Roxio was the best most affordable device to get with hdmi pass through in the world so I use it on my laptop a 3 year old hp Amd 64x2 2.0 ghz with 4 gigs of ram and nvidia graphics. Other then it freezing through roxio software and the low quality for a stream to be not glitchy and freezing, for the buck its really a great device, I almost junked it until I figured this out... So hopefully I have helped anyone in the same situation... The Term Think Outside The Box is funny because it REALLY does apply to this... I'm not pro tech guru but I play on tv hahahaha hope you all enjoyed this post and are laughing as I was when I realized after months of laggy glitchy crashing recording... the answer was simply screen capture video and stream it live... give me a thumbs up or a thank you message if this changed everything for you! *tips his hat* zeropopular

    Livestream At Twitch.tv

    I had the same problem with a very long delay because I was running too many programs at once... I reinstalled everything after I closed out all other running aps via the task manager of windows.. I now am streaming less then a minute back more like 10 seconds really however the higher the quality the longer out it becomes.. and the more it seems to freeze.. I have found streaming in really high quality to be almost an instant freeze... If it still doesnt work right run multiple speed tests you may have a bad drop line from your provider and it simply is glitching due to bandwidth loss here n there... if so you just call em and they will come out and they are a pain about it but demand em to climb the pole and replace your drop.... If that doesnt work try reinstalling your graphics driver while checking for an update if all that doesnt work... have roxio replace your device its just as likely their hardware as it would be yours at that point... if you can stream your web cam perfectly you should be able to stream fine.. so It is probably the device... If you want no delay I figured out a way around it all FINALLY!!! YAY!! so for those who want to know give me a thumbs up ! Try using Camtasia then streaming the preview in the roxio software itself if all else fails that will be instant stream... you can actually capture it for your editing while streaming this way and use live AUDIO via a microphone plugged into your pc. (you can just select the area of the preview box and stream that I have been finding ways to work around the roxio problem for streaming since day one... I have found that streaming through another program finally got me instant high quality stream at 1080 without freezing by just not using the stream function roxio has due to it having limited features) I know I know I know... I am not promoting for camtasia I really dont even like the program I just hate LAAGGGGG grrrr I eat LAG for BREAKFAST!!! hope that helps my man *tips his cap* zeropopular (i'm not a guru or a genius, I just think outside the box)
  3. Hello Roxio Community, I am having problems with the editor since upgrading my system to windows 8 pro 32 bit. Here are my specs: hp dv2615nr amd 64x2 2.0ghz(notebook) Nvidia geforce 810 4 gigs ram Since I have upgraded to windows 8 pro from 7 ultimate the following errors are occurring and i'll try to list as much information as possible, thanks ahead of time. Editor starts up perfectly fine. When I load in my daily videos I always get an error saying "the current production is empty or contains invalid files" however the clip is loaded when I exit out of the error message After I start working with the clip each day almost every time I do anything It gives me a pop up with no text and two option Details and ok when I hit details the box then opens larger with a block box inside of it which is also blank then I hit ok and the program then continues to allow me to edit the original command I was attempting... But EVERY time I keep getting this box or other similar boxes however not one of them every have any information, text, or details. I seem to be able to work with the clips and edit them decently however I am used to working with El Gato with clips I just edit in Final Cut or Vegas. I am not familiar with the editor itself... so I find these constant pop ups to perhaps be important while learning all new software. Is there any known issues with the editor and windows 8 pro that creates this problem. and why is the capture video I load opening with that error about its content... Seems to be very much a hassle since I cannot import the video files to any other video editor I have found to date... I currently have all top editors as well... and when I stream I seem to have to stream in the lowest quality possible if I want to not have the stream freeze every couple of minutes..but thats for another section in the forums I know... So back to the problems at hand What are the pop ups I am getting supposed to be saying? Why is the footage I just finish getting with the device giving me errors when I load it? Is this device working fine with Windows 8 pro or are their enough known errors that it's better off I go back to 7 ultimate for now? (and if so what would the projected date be for an update on the issues) I read the FAQ and it says the reason its in this format is for Quality, however I don't find this Quality even at highest settings to match my pc captures with the El Gato in avi. Why would this be the only option for output? Is there another editor that works with this format that is windows 8 pro compatible that I can find somewhere or is there a plan for a professional editor soon? (with more professional features hopefully the community can create better videos, these are just stoneage options in this editor and limiting the users to beginner editing only I kinda feel like I'm learning kindergarten editing when I am a Final Cut Expert) btw...you can easily play the full clip and record it via many tools I used snagit and vegas today because the editor seems to be too limited to currently use for anything but playing the video for me to cap.. but I know I am losing a ton of quality..I'm hopeful these empty boxes may hold some clue! I really just want to use the notebook and roxio to be able to easily be mobile and stream from other places and in LAN... I have a pc I use for my home however switching the el gato and roxio really shouldn't be necessary I surpass the required specs for the roxio on this notebook, however for El Gato it's literally bare minimum spec and still does work ok however its preview doesnt come up on the screen... THE REASON I BOUGHT this capture device is because you guys have come up with what is the best priced best cap device with the lowest needed specs, I figured this would run like a champ... So far its GREAT FOR CAPTURE, but nothing else works right. thanks Ahead of time guys...
