An XLR cable used with an adapter won't give you the audio quality that an all-XLR cable will. If audio quality is really important, I'd buy or borrow an external recorder that takes XLR cables directly. If this isn't an option, pick up an XLR to 1/8" adapter cable. I suggest taping the adapter to the camcorder so it doesn't move around much. (Mic cables ...

Easiest way would be to get a small camera with HDMI output (like say, a GoPro HD Hero 2 or a Replay XD1080) and hook it up to a Livestream Broadcaster unit, which looks small enough (and is battery powered) to strap on to someone. The Livestream Broadcaster supports wi-fi, or even plugging a USB modem directly into it. There's also the Teradeck stuff if ...

Answer 3: Use XLR cables to get the audio from the PA to your camcorder. To convert the balanced PA signal to the line signal, take a passive DI-box (aka DI-unit). They are not expensive. You'll get a solid one for less than 50$ by Amazon. More info: DI-Units - Wikipedia DI-Boxes - Amazon.com

If you are actually using a component cable (3 or 5 connectors with 2 more for audio) then you should be able to do HD signals unless your capture device or source device is limiting you. Based on the SD resolution limit, it sounds like you may actually be using a composite cable though (1 yellow cable for video and a white and red cable for audio). ...

Xsplit is a popular software choice for people recording and/or streaming video games. It allows multiple inputs and can overlay video on top of video, as you'd need for the PiP effect. There is a small fee to purchase this, but would highly recommend it if you are serious about it. Another popular solution is Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) which is ...

This is normally done as a post production operation. Record the video of you and the gameplay and then sync them up in any video editing or composition software and it should easily allow you to scale down and position the clip of you over the video game layer. It will normally either be called picture in picture on more consumer targeted software or is ...

If it were me, I would try using a video recording interface with RCA connectors, as most TVs have an RCA audio/video output. Most of these connect via USB and come with some sort of software. For the video of the players, use a second software program and webcam/etc. to capture this. If you had a Mac, this could probably be sync'd in Final Cut Pro. I'm not ...
