What’s new in version 2.7:
Screenshot Support (XGC)
Support for in-game screenshot has been a highly requested feature for quite some time now, so we decided to finally add this feature to XSplit Gamecaster. Not only are you able to take screenshots in-game, but you also have the option to upload those memorable snaps to your social media accounts on-the-fly!
Social Login (XGC, XBC)
Registering users no longer need to fill out our signup form with this feature. All they need to do is login with a social media account of their choice and that will automatically be linked to an XSplit account that will be created for them. This streamlines the process for new users making it easier for them to get started.
Intel® RealSense™ Support (XGC, XBC)
Intel® RealSense™ cameras enable users to do pseudo-green screen, chroma key type of background removal without actually needing a chroma backdrop. Version 2.7 of both XSplit products will have support for this type of camera. Aside from basic support, it also includes new options to perform background removal with lower CPU usage.
Masking Support (XBC)
Masking options can be readily accessed from the source properties window of a scene source. We encourage you to give it a try because we think you’ll like it. 🙂
Other awesome features & improvements
Aside from the items above, we also have the following that are as equally worth-mentioning:
• Improved support for Dailymotion
• Support for Yuan capture devices
• Support for Hauppauge HD PVR 60 capture device
• and more!
XSplit Broadcaster allows you to set up multiple scenes during your broadcast. With just a click of the mouse, you can switch from the game itself to another input device or prepared graphic such as a “BRB” screen or background image.
This application is capable of using other apps such as TwitchAlerts for enhancing game streams. Using .txt files and URL submissions, you can set up a variety of alerts such as donations and followers. Virtually any streaming improvement app that uses .txt files or URLs can be included easily into XSplit Broadcaster.
Drag and drop graphics are a nice touch as you can simply pull an image out of a folder and plop it right into the stream screen itself. This is a great time saver and works with a wide range of the most common image file types. Personally, I use a lot of PNGs in my stream.
For those looking for an easy to use piece of software for making YouTube videos, Xsplit Broadcaster has you covered. Instead of selecting “Broadcast,” you can change to “Local Recording.” This gives you the ability to record game play or other videos using your webcam and a background. Personally, I use it to create my health videos at CrossingColorado.com. It utilizes the green screen quite nicely.
There are so many pros related to this software that it’s difficult to list them all. I don’t have a lot of time and want to get everything I can listed in this post.
- Easy to use and almost nearly completely automated.
- Drag and drop graphic integration
- Third-party app integration through files and URLs
- Many tools and features for complete customization
- Advanced options for special fine-tuning
- Quick response from technical support staff
- Affordable when compared to high-priced alternatives
- Your XSplit account works for both Broadcaster and Gamecaster – only one payment for both
- Free to use personal license
No software or device is 100% perfect. Although XSplit Broadcaster does have amazing features, there are a few things that might need to be addressed in future updates.
- Doesn’t agree with the Diamond GC500 very well
- Handles social media updates to Twitter, Facebook and Google+ a bit haphazardly
Price Comparison to Similar Software
There are a few applications on the Internet that have similar capabilities, but not all of them are as well developed for ease of use and affordability. The only real piece of software that may be comparable is that of OBS, another common streaming application Twitch users love. Personally, I believe that XSplit Broadcaster is easier to use than OBS – but each to their own. OBS is a free open source project relying on forums for assistance.
