    Perhaps the forum needs a hardware section.

    Anyway, I was wondering if any of the content creators out there have any experience with streaming / capture / recording cards, specifically for streaming console to Twitch or youTube. I was looking at the Elgato and Hauppage PCIe cards and trying to determine which one might work better for connecting a console via HDMI and streaming using either provided software or OBS. Or, if there are other recommendations, I'd appreciate some direction on choosing one. Budget, as always, is a concern, so no I'm not going to spend $1,000 on a capture card or device, but I think the Elgato is $200 for the HD PRO version, and anything under that would work within my budget.
    I currently use:

    OBS Studio (free broadcasting software with tons of "How To" videos all over the web)
    Elgato HD60 (PS4, PS3, Wii U, Switch, Xbox 360, Xbox One, etc recording/streaming)
    Elgato HD60 Pro card (has better quality recording options for streaming, literally feels like no latency at all)
    AT2020 USB+ Microphone
    And plenty of extra HDMI cables, and HDMI splitters.

    I am getting ready to start a YouTube channel, and I'm hoping to get an "official" response from someone who works for TFP about whether or not my channel's name might be a copyright violation against TFP. I wanted to name my channel "7 Days to Bri." My real name is Brian and some of my friends at work call me Bri-Guy (for some reason). I plan most of the content of the channel to be about this game, although I will dip into some others just for fun. My first choice had been "Bri-Guy Gaming" but then I saw that "Bearded Guys Gaming" is a big one and I didn't want to cause any confusion by having the same initials. I wasn't sure where to post this, but this thread seems like the most likely choice...

    Edit: Just gonna go ahead do my thing, since I'm not getting a response. If there's an issue I can re-brand in the future.

    Recommendations on hardware for building a streaming PC? My sister asked me to build one for her, and from I can gather more cores (So something like Ryzen) are the way to go on CPU, and ~ GTX 1060 6GB on the GPU. Thanks in advance.

    I assume this is as good'a place as any to throw this - thought it was awesome. Been following the Neebs Gaming crew for ages, loving their theatrical cuts of their 7 days series, and they dropped this, this morning:

    Enjoy

    Where can I go for information about the A17 Stream Team? Or, am I too late to inquire?

    Wondering if there is any way to have my viewers get involved with my stream by having them spawn in zombies or even a horde using bits and or donations. Is there any way to use the twitch api and or mixer api to do so? Is there a third party app or even a mod that could make the happen?

    Thank you.

    You'd need a server manager that had hooks into twitch, which I've pitched to server manager developers before but I don't know if any have done it.

    I had thought I had seen a streamer already do this. When someone made a donation they could spawn in either something to help him. (food, resource, weapon) or something to hurt (zombie, bear, dog) Maybe it was a dream.
