So somebody was selling their HDMI capture device second-hand, I made them an offer with a price I was prepared to pay for it, and they accepted! So after two days I had this device at home. I've been spending quite a bit of time setting it up... I game with a controller from the PC in the living room. That is connected to our TV with an HDMI cable, so I could hook that up to the capture device, which also acts like a HDMI passthrough. (There was something with resolutions though, but I got that resolved.) Then I hooked the capture device through USB up to klik's laptop, and now I have a streaming setup though her laptop!
So I've been doing some streaming, and it's great fun. I don't get many viewers, but some of the people that I regularly watch on Twitch have subscribed and come to hang out, which is a lot of fun. And you can easily export videos from Twitch to YouTube, so it's easy to get a playlist of your playthrough of a game (in case anyone is interested...).

So you can now find me (mostly Wednesdays and Thursdays) on my Twitch.tv channel over at https://www.twitch.tv/fubfubfub. If you want to know when I'm going online, keep an eye out for my streaming-related Twitter account @fubfubfub. Drop in, say hi, watch me fail at games (mostly working on a Dark Souls II sorcerer playthrough).

It's pretty neat. Lots of twiddly stuff to do though, and unlike most streamers, I do not have a dedicated streaming setup, so it's kinda amateuristic. But then again, I do this for fun, and not to build some kind of audience or whatever.
