    Hi all.

    I've developed a new video capture application for the Hauppauge HDPVR, HDPVR2 and Rocket devices (ie component/HDMI capture devices). It'll eventually be a commercial application, but for now, because it's brand new and really in a beta testing stage, I'm giving away licenses, and hoping to get feedback about how the install went etc.

    Its mainly aimed gamers, hence the GamerCap name, but in reality will work with any other video source too.

    If you want give it a go, and would like a free license, download and install it from http://www.gamercap.com, and send me a PM to ask for a license, or use the Contact Us link on the gamercap website.

    Here is a screenshot:


    And a video:

    I've just uploaded new release (1.0.2), which corrects an issue that would cause GamerCap to not start for some users. If you'd tried it and encountered this problem, please give it another go.

    I've posted up a new version that supports for more gaming device, adding support for the the Roxio GameCAP HD Pro, and the Diamond Multimedia GC500 and VC-500. These devices, particularly the Roxio device, have been pretty poorly supported in 3rd party app, so this should give owners another option.

    It's still in beta testing, so if you'd like a free license, download and install it from http://www.gamercap.com, and use the Contact Us link on the GamerCap website to ask for a free license. The license will continue to function when it becomes a commercial app in the near future.

    I don't own any Avermedia cards at this stage, but I'll keep them in mind for a future version.

    After install get error:
    Ok. I've fixed the possibility of this error for the next release.

    Not yet, but I have one ordered, and it's on it's way to me, so should do in the very near future.

    Hi sub3, so i just tested the program and here are is what i concluded for the latest version.

    Install was smooth and program hasn't crashed yet.

    Questions:

    do i need just drivers or whole roxio software?

    some kind of livetv buffer files when program is open and/or recording?

    Cool Features:

    bypasses hdcp

    can disable preview to use nearly 0% cpu usage from the program!

    Feature requests:

    add directshow filters

    file sizes too big needs to be more adjustable.

    full screen preview

    option to change recording resolution size and preview window size

    option to change aspect ratio of preview and recording

    option to change frame rate of recording

    option to change audio rates etc.

    option to change video renderer

    option to change preview and record volume

    Bugs:

    The decoders settings are not saved when closing and reopening program.

    when you change video decoders you have to change an option in video capture to get the apply changes buttons

    To do:

    only tested hdmi this time will test component asap

    intend to use to record off streaming media player and pc gaming recording

    Specs:

    athlon 64 x2 5000+ no overclock

    roxio game capture hd pro

    4 gb ddr2

    nvidia gtx 680

    western digital 500gb velociraptor

    Let me know if you can implement any of the above features thanks in advance.

    Great.

    Questions:

    do i need just drivers or whole roxio software?
    It just needs the drivers, not the other Roxio software

    Cool Features:

    bypasses hdcp
    Shhhhh


    Feature requests:

    add directshow filters

    file sizes too big needs to be more adjustable.
    I've managed to make pretty good progress without any help/info from Roxio, but there is some areas I don't have much control, and I've had to ask Roxio for help. I have managed to make contact with them, but I'm still waiting to hear back from the, with info that'll help this.

    full screen preview
    The next build should have this.

    option to change recording resolution size and preview window size

    option to change aspect ratio of preview and recording

    option to change frame rate of recording
    Most hardware encoder devices will only let you record the same resolution and frame rate as the source material. To change this type of stuff typical requires the software to ignore the hardware encoder, and instead soft encode.

    GamerCap does show an 'advanced settings' button for HDPVR2 users, giving them options to specify hardware scaler rules etc. The other Hauppauge devices don't support hardware scaling, so don't see these options. I'm pretty sure this isn't possible with the Roxio device, but I'll put the question to Roxio after I get answers to my first round of questions.

    option to change preview and record volume
    Changing the record volume is another question I'm waiting to hear back from Roxio on.


    Bugs:

    The decoders settings are not saved when closing and reopening program.

    when you change video decoders you have to change an option in video capture to get the apply changes buttons
    Ok, I'll check these out and fix.

    Thanks for the feedback - it's much appreciated.

  10. GamerCap works great with my Hauppauge PVR 2. Very easy to use and eliminated the problems I was having with the Hauppauge Capture program.

    Sorry I missed out on the beta test. I don't use the Hauppage software at all anymore. I use the Avermedia capture software and it works fine with all my sources.

  12. GamerCap froze while doing a capture this morning. I couldn't stop the program with task manager so I rebooted the computer. Now GamerCap will not start. All I get is the spinning circle then nothing. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling without luck. I have tried a complete uninstall with Revo uninstaller and deleting all references from the registry with CCleaner. The program still refuses to start. Any ideas what to try? almost forgot; Computer is a HP Envy 700-074 running Windows 8.1 update

    As mentioned via email, deleting the C:\Users\Public\GamerCap\config.xml will probably get it working again. We have seen a couple of people end up with a corrupt config.xml when their hard disk is full.

  16. Hi, sub3! I reinstalled and still had the same problem. I received a email reply from Graeme to delete the C:\Users\Public\GamerCap\config.xml file and restart. That fixed the problem. Great program; Glad it's running again.

    I'm not sure what caused the program to freeze. The drive isn't anywhere near full so that' isn't the problem. Just one of those things I guess.

    I'm not aware of any other reasons for it to occur, but I've made changes for the next release to protect against it happening, so you shouldn't see the problem again.
