Mmh, the deck is on wayland, but unfortunately i don't have a clue on how to change levels on amd nor wayland, sorry.

-edit-
Seems kde actually supports it on wayland

Maybe it is in "Hardware -> Display and Monitor -> Displays"

I have an ElGato HD60 S+ and its wonderful. It shows up as a UVC camera (so no drivers needed) and the quality is great. It's kind of pricey though. Normally about 170$ USD but I found it on sale for 120 sometime last year. There is also an ElGato HD60 S (no plus) that is not Linux compatible.

Originally I had a Pluggable NIX USB3 HDMI capture device which was very compatible but had its issues. Honestly though there were plenty of workarounds to the issues and I'd still be using it if I hadn't got the HD60 S+ on sale.

With these "plug-and-play" (UVC) streaming devices, do you need to muck around too much, or do you just select them as a video / sound input source in OBS Studio?
i wish magewell had linux support. sadly they do not
they are also heavy in price but make up for it in performance

*edit* to be fair they do have kernel module support and some support articles
but their firmware blobs only have windows & macosx downloads.


by the number of streamers with mixed reviews and some have completely sworn off elgato capture cards because of quality and reliability


so yeah i cant really recommend anything. only capturing i do is from a laserdisc rca to hdmi!

also you will want to note if anything youre using strips HDCP encoding from the source so that you CAN capture it.

The pluggable NIX I had to mess with a lot to get it set up right. The elgato was pretty much plug it in and select it as a video device on OBS.
