Top Customer Reviews
The Roxio does a fair job of meeting those expectations. The device takes a component input of up to a resolution of 1080i, and captures at a YouTube-acceptable resolution of 480p. Hooking the console of choice to the Game Capture device, and then hooking the device to the TV and laptop/computer, is very simple. The software is a no-frills, straightforward affair - just hit "Start Capture" and you're going. You can capture in AVI, WMV, and DivX formats, with tradeoffs between file size and processing power required.
However, the Roxio Game Capture is not for everyone. There is a serious degradation in the video quality that appears on your TV when it goes through the Game Capture device, darkening and softening the image not unlike a cheap splitter. For those who pride themselves in owning HD consoles for HD-quality graphics, this won't be acceptable.
Also, make sure that the computer you plan to hook up well exceeds the specifications outlined by Roxio; an AMD 2.0ghz Dual-Core is definitely not enough unless you enjoy having your audio/video de-sync (or worse).
Roxio's customer service has a hard time leaving the script when it comes to troubleshooting, and is not very timely in replying. However, they do provide discussion forums where you can post issues that you have.
All-in-all, a satisfactory device for those who don't care too much about capture/output quality and looking for a cheaper alternative for video capture. However, for those who won't be satisfied with the lackluster video quality and Roxio's (lack of) customer service, it is advised that they look elsewhere.
Once I had it hooked up, I installed the software on my computer, rebooted my computer, and I was ready to record. I launched the software, which was insanely simple to use, and I recorded my first Rock Band 3 video. I recorded a short 5-minute video, uploaded it to youtube, and I was watching my video in 480p in less than 15 minutes. Most of the time was spent uploading and waiting for youtube to process the video. It was amazingly slick, simple, and easy to use.
Feel free to view this sample video to view the video quality: [...]
It's worth noting that it does come with a component cable, which is very nice considering many retail stores would be happy to sell you one for $30! Bear in mind you will also need a system-specific component cable, which I bought at Gamespot for $15. They actually sell one cable that is compatible for PS3 and XBOX 360, which is pretty convenient!
The software is decent, but it definitely has its limitations. For example, I don't think it's possible to superimpose one video clip on to another video clip. It's very popular to superimpose a cut-out of the note chart along with a video of you actually playing. I don't think that is possible with this software, though I'd be happy to be corrected on this.Read more ›

Priced at under $100, it is by far the best value out there for the money.. I have had mine for almost a year now and it works great!! You can stream to websites like blogTV.com, USTREAM, TWITCH & LiveStream.. All you do is hook up the Roxio to your PS3 via an AV COMPONENT CABLE, (not included, available for around $20).. Then you hook the Roxio up to your television with the included AV cable, and hook it up to your computer with the included USB cable.. Thats it!!
Your computer then recognizes the Roxio as a webcam, and you can stream to sites, record to your hard drive or do BOTH AT THE SAME TIME..
I use a free program from ADOBE called ADOBE FLASH LIVE MEDIA ENCODER.. You can download it free from Adobe.com.. This program allows you to broadcast in High Quality to the streaming sites, as well as record to your hard drive simultaneously. What this means is people can watch your games LIVE on the streaming site, and if you choose to save the video to your cpus hard drive, you can then upload the video to youtube.com later!!
Its a great little device and a great value for the money...
Attached is a little preview of saved video uploaded to youtube from the game ALIENS COLONIAL MARINES..
IMPORTANT: If you have a PS3, do NOT buy the new HD PRO version!! PS3 HDCP blocks HDMI signal to capture devices, so you CANNOT stream or record in HD from a PS3..
If you have an XBOX360 and want the HD PRO version you better have a VERY FAST computer with great processing speed to stream/record in HD.. I recommend getting the STANDARD EDITION of the Roxio Game Cap.. At $60.98 it is a great deal!!
