Connect to secondary monitor

I need to know how to use Wowza… I’m new to it… i have my gaming console connected directly to my monitor instead of the computer so my computer is one source and my system is a second source

Hello @Johnny_Davidson, you would need a capture device. If you’re not familiar:

A capture card is an input device used to convert gameplay signals to digital data that can be uploaded to the internet. With a Capture Card and other accessories like HDMI cable, it’s possible to stream and capture and share the entire game.

So, you will need:

  • HDMI splitter
  • Capture device for his PC.

If you google capture cards, you can see several options and blogs on how to set it up. Here is a good blog to get you started though with some helpful images too on how to connect it all together: (Send us a SUPPORT TICKET if you’d like direct help getting it going.)
