Streaming N64 on Twitch?


Recommended Posts

I'm excitedly digging out my old (PAL) N64 in a few weekends time and will be playing it through my old CRT (via composite (not component - soz!)) as soon as I get the spare room changed into a man's hideout!

Other than the simple method of streaming through twitch on my PS4, I have no idea how I'd go about this .


Does anyone here stream N64? What kit do I need? I have tried google for answers, but most of the hits on there seem to involve an N64 and a HDTV or PC monitor so assume it'd be different for a CRT.

Did some research and the Elgato is good (but expensive) but there is a better option through a few different types of capture cards (I-O DATA GV-USB2, for example) in conjunction with OBS / Amarec software.


I'll change the typos thread title now, oops.

What're the rules with streaming emulation?


For me, I wouldn't bother with the N64. As has been suggested, the Wii/Wii U is a much more legible and practical alternative, though I instead would be investigating emulation on PC, as it's not very taxing on the hardware with the added benefits of a better framerate, graphics and controller. Then just use OBS to screencast.
