UPDATE: HD Testing

Category: HPAW,News

While I have not yet decided whether or not HPAW will go HD I have started my testing now that I have the new HD capture card in my possession.

Over the course of the next week I will be uploading a series of public video tests to both the HPAW server and to YouTube. Any and all feedback would be appreciated.

Audio is now working with direct game capture. Getting this all to work with the HPAW microphone is next on the list.

Check out the flip at 4:07

The bitrate on HD Test 3 is higher than required resulting in a larger file size. Future tests will hopefully be smaller with little to no quality loss.

    The video quality in both the downloadable file and youtube is insanely good. If you can keep it as close to this as possible it would be awesome.

    Great quality on all 3 videos, also, what kind of capture card do you have?

    Another question — I know this is annoying — do you guys plan on doing a Left 4 Dead episode? It’s a great multiplayer game and I’d like to see your reaction(s) and/or impressions on the game.

    i second the left 4 dead ep. this was a good vid, but hd makes everything a bit darker.

    the videos look nice, they require a little Loadtime on the youtube but its not bad. at this quality its not even neccesary to download them. btw What model was your old capture card?

    and Ghost and Devilkas,, msg me on the Hpaw Forums, i got a nice treat for you.

    The video quality and the sound are amazing, hope this will be used for future videos.
