    Hello, new to the forum and hoping I at least have the right section for this question;

    I am seeking to find a way to livestream my PS3's or my TV's output to my computer then livestream it through Livestream Procaster for my friends to watch.

    I have searched the net for a while and even came across this site through the search however have not yet been able to find an answer.

    I have come up with an idea on how to make it work but I am not sure on any of them they go as follows, if anyone can give me a "Yup that'll work" or "Do it this way..." I'd be very grateful;

    Get a HDMI splitter connecting it to the TV with one cable running to the PS3 and one spare (Or to have the splitter connected to the PS3 with one running to the TV and one spare) the spare HDMI connection is connected to either to a HDMI-to-Ethernet connector and connect the Ethernet to the computer or to an HDMI-to-USB connector and hope that the feed is noted as an input. Find a programme that windows an input and stream it that way.

    My system is as follows;
    Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version
    OS Version: Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium, Service Pack 2, 32 bit
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7400 @ 2.80GHz, x64 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10
    Processor Count: 2
    RAM: 3070 Mb
    Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 4300/4500 Series, 512 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: Total - 468740 MB, Free - 170689 MB; F: Total - 468741 MB, Free - 197512 MB;
    Motherboard: Acer, WG43M
    Antivirus: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2013, Updated and Enabled

    Again, any assistance would be most appreciated, thank you for your time.

    Falling short of purchasing a TV Card for your computer, I don't think you can.

    This company usually has the tv cards / tuners / etc that should be sufficent for you.
