When purchasing a new video capture device, we recommend you first determine which encoder software you wish to use as not all encoder software options work with all the video capture device options. Please be sure to review your desired encoder software's recommended and supported video capture devices prior to purchasing your video capture device.

If you are looking for a simple plug-n-play recommendation, as of the time of this article, the Magewell USB video capture devices recommended in our PC and Mac Video Capture Devices help articles work with the software encoders recommended in our Encoder Options help articles. Additionally, the Magewell USB video capture devices are available for rental from Sunday Streams.
