Hihi bloggers, I used to have myself a little show I called HardCorey Time or more specifically HardCorey Question Time and it was a grand ol' time. I would take a thread from the strategy forum with a question and a replay then review the thread/question and look through the replay on the stream. It was fun and I did 17 20-40 minute episodes or so.
Now getting kicked off my university campus, now live off campus and have too slow internet to stream. =( Ive been experimenting with lower quality streams and I know I want to keep streaming these episodes to help the strategy forum, gain a better understand of the game myself, and answer simple noob to diamond questions but its hard to keep motivated. I mean damn there are almost always 30+ active streamers, considerably more during peak times. I never really had many people watching my stream and would make VODs to post into people's individual threads.
I'm not sure why I'm writing this blog but I want to keep streaming for sure just not sure how to go about it or if it is worth anything if the only people that watch are maybe the OP of the thread I'm replying to or a couple others.
One really cool thing is I played a ladder game against a guy named Nuvo who's replay I did my very first Question Time episode on. Totally random meetup and he says like, "Oh hey don't you stream on TL" "yah you casted my game" which was a really cool feeling.
So, how have your experiences in casting/streaming been?
Also I was wondering if anyone could recommend me a good screen recorder that can record both microphone/speaker volumes at a 1600X900 resolution? Maybe if I just do VODs instead of streaming I'll have better luck because then my slow internet won't ruin the quality.

Use xsplit. I should actually go check and see if the vod part is implemented yet... Alternatively use Camtasia and set color depth to 24-bit instead of 32-bit to conserve processing power + Virtual Audio Cable for recording microphone + speaker.
Outbound res and bitrate depend on computer/bandwidth specs.
Last time i used xsplit it didn't have a vod system and I think i have camtasia installed hmm. Ill give it a shot again with the virtual audio cable sometime. thanks, Its just so time consuming setting all this stuff up and then once I get it working I end up flaking out, giving up, or run into some new problem... Also pretty busy. oh well.
