I looked up the Elgato and Elgato HD 60.

now I just need to know if the HD 60 is compatible with RetroN 5 or not..
so far I think I found out that the regular Elgato is compatible... I think...
but I'd like to have the 60....if that works....

no clue

ok, sorry for answering my own questions, but at least maybe this will help someone else in the future,
after several searches on youtube, i found that some people are in fact recording with retron 5 with an HD 60 device, (example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzGqfTU4YRQ)
I guess it will work to stream to twitch as well..
I guess I'll just go ahead and buy one for $150 through amazon.
will update after I get everything up and running.

I can't believe there is like no info on this on the internet. sigh...

ok, I got it working. finally.
that was so annoying though.
ok, so I have a Mac, I downloaded OBS, but that only captures my computer screen....

elgato has a program called game capture hd, that works great, BUT when I go to stream to Twitch, it's all green and horrible looking and I can't figure out why, SO
me being the smartie pants that I am, I use both programs, and use OBS to capture the screen-preview of my non-streaming gamecapture hd app, and then stream through OBS.
so it works, and I figured out the sound by downloading ANOTHER app called Soundflower.

horrible experience, but I found a loop-hole that works wonders for me so far.
check out my stream, follow me if you're interested.
I plan on playing a crap-ton of games with retron 5. and... I have TONS.
