Looking for the best Video Game Recorder is not an easy task and one of the best game recorder is the HD60s, because of it’s features that you can record your gameplay on separate computer. This feature will maintain and preserve the FPS of your game and not consuming the processing power of your main rig. But there is a problem when you tried recording hours of gameplay, Elgato seems doesn’t properly sync the audio when you’re recording a long video. This leads to 1 to 3 seconds of delay when the video is being played or exported in your favorite video editor.
My suspect to this problem is that this problem only happens in 60 fps recording and the 30 fps recording has no problem at all. Why? because most recording tools doesn’t match the 60 fps of video and sample rate of audio and Elgato maybe missed this problem and haven’t yet fixed it. This lead to problem producing the video a milliseconds differences will have severe outcome when you’re recording hours of gameplay.
