What’s the best way to show classic games on YouTube? Emulation or video capture? Is a cheap capture device even worth it? This video started out as a straight review of the AGPTek HD 1080p Game Capture device (aka the EZcap 284) but eventually took on some more philosophical and practical elements about how I’m setting up my channel – and I’ve got a really useful tip for those of you looking to do digital capture of RF-based consoles!
For those who just want a verdict on the EZCap: should you buy it? Only if you really do want 1080p HDMI capture *or* the polar opposite – simple graphics from the very early console generations. The more advanced consoles with analog outputs look like crap captured with this device.
Nevertheless, I do talk about two currently available devices in this video, so here are links to them both – help me out and use my affiliate links if you can, you can actually buy anything after clicking on them!

ElGato’s newer devices will do 60fps 1080p capture but do not seem to support analog capture.
