Two computers, capture card and USB Headset


New Member
It took me a while to figure this one out so I wrote a guide.

This guide applies to users that meet the following criteria:

1. Using OBS.
2. Using a capture card in a second computer that is doing the recording/streaming.
3. Using a USB headset with a microphone in the computer that is being recorded.
4. Using HDMI between the gaming computer and the streaming box (second computer).

This guide will show you how to capture both game audio, teamspeak/ventrilo/mumble/etc audio, AND the audio from your microphone on the USB headset.

It is catered towards AverMedia capture cards although I'm certain that this method will work with other HDMI capture cards.

Please provide feedback on results with different software/hardware and I'll update the article accordingly.
