My Gear

I often get asked by people, “what equipment do you use?”

Well I thought I would answer that question here so you can see what I use for yourself. In all honestly it’s not all that high tech but it will get the job done.

Here is my current computer set up. I bought this December 2014.

Screen Capture Software

Mirillis Action

The screen capture software I use it called Mirillis Action.

First off, let me say that this software is not free. You will have to pay for it if you want it.

There are a couple reasons why I chose this piece of software:

  1. It had a 30-day free trial, so I could check it out first.
  2. It has the capability to use a facecam if you want to.
  3. It can record in AVI or MP4.
  4. It can livestream if I want to.  (a monthly subscription)
  5. It can upload directly to YouTube from the software.
  6. It can do desktop, gaming  and zone capture.
  7. It has the ability to take screenshots and record audio.
  8. It can record audio in a separate track.
Open Broadcast Software

I also use another piece of software called Open Broadcast Software(OBS), which is open source.

I use this piece of software when Mirillis Action isn’t working properly for me, which can happen from time to time  as with any piece of software.

I use this piece of software to stream to Twitch(My Profile) as well, and it works very well.

It requires a bit of tweaking for Twitch to get the right settings, but once you get that done it works extremely well.

Video Editing Software

At the moment I do very little video editing. However, when I have to do it, I use Windows Movie Maker which is free.

 Recording Hard Drive

I use a Seagate Back Up Plus. It’s a nice 1TB hard drive that supports USB 3.

It was a great price when I got it and has worked well thus far.
