AverMedia Live Gamer Portable





AverMedia Live Gamer Portable 


We prayed long and hard about reviewing Avermedia Live Gamer Portable. We debated from every angle we could possibly think of. At the end of the day we decided to give this device some love and attention. Or at least a review - which may or may not include the love if you know what I mean.

The Avermedia Live Gamer Portable is used to record your video game play sessions. Want to do a video walkthrough of a home console video game? Then the Avermedia Live Gamer Portable is for you. We tested it on the Playstation 3, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. It is also supposed to work on a PC. I suspect it will work with the Playstation 4.

The Avermedia Live Gamer Portable device connects to the video game home console, the television set, and the computer that is recording it. We used a laptop for the recording. The biggest issue with the Avermedia Live Gamer Portable is the wires. They are short. The computer recording needs to be almost on top of the television and Avermedia Live Gamer Portable device. This part of this recording device is not flexible, and not easy to use.

It is also difficult to swap between different devices. Hardware and software changes are needed each and every time. Forget one, and it does not work. In fact we spent more time troubleshooting the Avermedia Live Gamer Portable than we did actually using it.

The Avermedia Live Gamer Portable is a pricey device too. Families will likely have little to no interest in this video capture device. Teckies and geeks will have more of an interest. Even they may baulk at the high price of the Avermedia Live Gamer Portable.

The Avermedia Live Gamer Portable works. It is clumsy and clunky but it does work and the software is pretty slick. - Paul

{UPDATE}: We have also recorded on another PC after an additional adapter was purchased.

UPDATE {06/25/2017}: Three years later we are still happily using this device. It no longer working with AV converted devices. It works fantastic with HDMI devices, including easy microphone access.
