I have been toying with the idea of setting up OBS to record games from one computer to another. For example setting up an extra computer such as the HTPC or my laptop to catch the feed from my main gaming computer and record it. For example; games that run on Vulkan or DirectX 12. I could set my main computer to record the entire desktop instead of a window, do my recording, then move it over to my main system for video editing.
Instead of setting up another computer with a capture card I instead found this plugin which will enable me to stream over LAN to a specified system. I’ll have to play with it first to see if it’s as reliable as it sounds. I’ve heard there might be some delay in audio, but that sounds like a particular setup issue that already has a couple workarounds from what I’ve read.
Another method I was also considering, or revisiting rather, was using Steam in home streaming to stream my gameplay on an extra system, then use OBS to remotely record. This won’t work with everything, like if I wanted to record and stream DOS or older games for example (haven’t tested if Vulkan or DX12 will work), but could be another alternative.
I will have to get a bit of a hands on experience at some point when I have the time and the need to do so. Not sure if I’ll have time this weekend. There are rituals to tend to.
