Hi folks, welcome to my blog. Its me your blog host Abraham and today i have come up with a review post about one of the renowned capture card in game players who record high quality HD videos for their YouTube channels. Not only do the PC game players use this video capture card but it is also a must have for the console game players (Xbox). I have been using the video capture card to stream my game play over Twitch with my audio documentary and i found this small device recommendable. That's why i decided to write about it. Now we discuss some most distinguishing features of the MiraBox Capture Card.
MiraBox comes with free delivery from Amazon and it is declared Amazon Choice due to most positive reviews from users. See the video below for unboxing of MiraBox.
Using MiraBox For Gaming
MiraBox has one HDMI in port and one HDMI out port. The reason is that when you are playing game on your console like XBOX attached to the television the MiraBox sits in the middle and it intercepts the gaming output. The HDMI cable of the gaming console instead of going into TV now goes into the MiraBox . The second HDMI cable goes from the MiraBox to your TV and this cable actually sends the audio and video of the gaming console to the TV.
Why you need MiraBox Video Capture Card
When you are playing games on your computer and streaming the game play as well using OBS or Twitch than your computer processor and graphics processor is over burdened.
