I would like to create relatively professional in-game videos using a HDMI grabber / capture card with loop-out. Maybe someone of you has a tip for me which one to buy.
The perfect grabber would look like this: 720p is sufficient resolution, but everything in terms of loop-out output / input lag has been optimized and perfected. A USB stick or powered external hard disk (I have one) is used as the recording medium. The recording is started and ended directly on the grabber by pressing a button. At the end there is a new file on the USB stick / hard drive, which I simply plug into my PC and then just copy and edit.
Since TheC64 Maxi generates minimal input lags which are not noticeable, due to the emulator, I absolutely need a grabber that only adds a minimal additional input lag if possible so that everything remains playable. All grabbers I've seen so far only support a 60Hz or 30Hz frame rate. Of course, 50Hz would be optimal, but as an emergency solution I could add the filename flag _TP to the file (if there is no NTSC file for the game) and set my TheC64 Maxi to NTSC. My screen supports both (max. 1080p with 50 or 60Hz). It doesn't necessarily has to have a USB 3.0 interface, as my PC only has USB 2.0 ports.
The most important thing would be that it has perfect values in terms of loop-out lag and that the PC does not act as an USB recording device, but simply an USB stick or external USB hard drive. A separate audio recording is not required.
If someone has a recommendation for me, I would be very grateful.
I posted this cause someone might find it useful..
I use a Mini HDMI2AV and a Easycap USB DC60 cause I use to use the EasyCap on my Original C64, I don't use my C64 anymore cause it easier to play games on THEC64 Maxi PI and it saves you money having to buy other devices for it to play games on it and THEC64 Maxi will last longer than the original hardware and saves the hardware to cause you are not using it(its not that easy to replace), I have had a original C64 for over 30 years... (I have as well a Vic20, C16 and Amiga)
The white one seems better than the black one, I have two of them, it has a clearer picture, its a clear picture than the original C64 composite.
Wrong Instruction with this one, you can get a fake Easy Cap that called "easycap sm-usb 007", I have one, it looks identical but has a crap picture so be careful.
The audio in the Easy Cap is not that good so I use the Mic on the front of the PC and enable its sound in Windows, it connects to the Mini HDMI2AV so I can hear the sound from THEC64 Maxi/Mini.
It handy to be able to do things on the PC like working on PCU on THEC64 and seen it on the same screen too, I use a app called DScaler, I used the app originally with my C64 (been using it for years), I can run my MD Mini and PS Classic too with this setup. The Mini HDMI2AV don't work with a HDMI Switch box. You have to power the HDMI2AV too otherwise the picture will turn off if it don't get enough power, You can use a Powered USB Hub to power it, I do.

spannernick: Its close but its not FLTK, Flashlight is made by a chinese company called JamTech Inc, its included with C64OSS source, and the carousel is made with C not C++, look for FLASHLIG.6(Flashlight 2.6) in C64OSS

brranduin: Hi Commodore fans. I just got a C64 Mini and I'm not getting audio. Google landed me here and this looks like a cool place for me to learn about my new toy. I never had one back in the day.
