MiSTer Game Videos on YouTube

Unread post by syltefar »

Hey. The last couple of months, I've been recording old games on my MiSTer and putting them on YouTube. My plan is to post a couple of new MiSTer videos every week. They all go into this playlist:

Cool! What's your capture setup? I've been interested in doing this myself but have no clue where to begin. I just have a laptop and plug my MiSTer in either to my (LCD) TV or computer monitor.

I run the MiSTer HDMI output through an Elgato 4K60 S+ (a standalone device that records to an SD card), recording in 1080p 60FPS. I've tried recording stuff in 50FPS, but it caused issues, so I mostly stick to 60FPS for now. The recording is cropped and upscaled x 2 using ffmpeg. The upscaling is to get a resolution than 1080p, which in turn makes YouTube encode it in nice quality.

Thank you! I'm always recording games from whatever weird retro rabbithole I'm into right now, so the selection is a bit random. :D

Yikes, cool product but quite a bit out of my budget. Good to know a standalone product like this exists though.
