Capturing game & webcam footage concurrently, Without capture card?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Can it be done without slowing the game down and without getting choppy footage (my rig is as signature, but not currently overclocked since it makes little difference in games), and without having to mix footage together in a video editing software afterward?

My strategy has been to use software that captures the entire windows screen, and run the game in windowed mode alongside a webcam window display.

I tried camstudio first; could not get it to pick up all audio channels. Also you couldn't pick from many codecs and the footage wasn't great.

I came close to what I wanted with 'debut' capture software, but it intentionally halved the live framerate of the entire screen (not the framerate during playback, but just with the app running!) which could not be turned off, so that was a no go. There was also a huge desync between sound and video on playback, regardless of which codec I used.

Then I tried "free screen to video" but it could only pick up one audio channel, and was also slow.

I want to mix the sound from my speakers and microphone together when recording; the mic is built into the webcam and for some reason 'stereo mix' device in windows doesn't mix the speakers and webcam mic together, so the app has to explicitly support sourcing from two audio channels I think...?
