We tried to test the Hauppauge device thoroughly. The videos on this page are captured from the Sony Playstation 3. We did test with the Xbox 360 as well however, and it worked perfectly.
Below are 3 videos captured using the Hauppauge device, all of these were recorded with the default settings.[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfj8lxtTgv8′]
The first video we recorded was from Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3. The quality is clearly good, although there is a small freeze in the video after the gun has fired.[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRGpl_YHm4Y’]
We tried to the use the Hauppauge device as realistically as possible, so I played a 2 v 2 face off match, and while we may have resorted to ‘camping’ in the one room, it did show the recorded game play is smooth, even if our internet connection wasn’t that great.
A good test of a device like this is Gran Turismo 5 as it has really high quality graphics and requires smooth rendering.[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XD_QqQJt8k’]
The quality of this video is certainly good, but there was a definite flicker on several of the menu screens before the race loaded. There are also several freezes visible during the race, which we didn’t notice with our Call Of Duty videos.
