So I have no capture card and really want to speedrun Red Dead Redemption, but my TV stays in a very high place, so what should I do to record it with my camera?


Position your camera high up to record it

Try to make something like this? you can build it with Lego or try some books?

Otherwise I would tape the camera also to a high place, maybe the ceiling? lol


@Seydie Hmmm good idea... Worth a try.


Try using a Tripod the cheapest where i live is $17 or like Seydie says stack books though if i had to use a phone or cheap camera to record something at a high place i would get creative


I used a box, 0$.

Depending on what console you're capturing from, if you're gonna spend $17 on a tripod you might as well just get an SD capture card for like $20: (there are other, cheaper models, even going as low as $10 like here: )

And most of the people who had issues with both of those cards were probably caused by the bad included software. Which you should almost never use to begin with.

Pretty much all consoles before the latest 3; PS4, Xbox One and Switch have the means to be captured through SD capture. I've fairly sure PS4 and Xbox One can also stream directly to Twitch through their on-board Twitch app. Switch is pretty much the odd one out. Thanks Nintendo.

Hey @Diewott1. What console do you have for Red Dead Redemption? If it’s Xbox One then you could just stream from the console itself. If not then you could try the suggestions people mentioned above. It’s nice to see someone who’s finally interested in speedrunning Red Dead so I could help out in the best way to stream the game and whatnot. I’m on Discord if you’d want to talk more on there. Good luck 🙂


@Matthew Jeez... I forgot to say which console I'm using lol
It's a PS3
