Sparrow HD, USB 3.0 HD HDMI Video Capture Card, Capture any HDMI device
I have four different video cards, This one outperforms the ones I already use
Didn’t have any issue using HDMI signal as a webcam
Well made, inside and out. A wonderful alternative to other more pricey devices on the market! Always better to buy American! This capture card is extremely easy to use...plug and play, no extra hassle. It's a sturdy workhorse. I bought my card several months ago. Since then, I have put it through rigerous repeated use and many long hour sessions. It performed spectacularly and just keeps running. It can get hot, so keep it in a ventilated spot if you plan on using it for extended sessions. The normal heat that occurs from a extended graphically intense session doesn't change quality or performance. Buy this device, you won't be disappointed.
Bonus- much less costly than many similar brands no software to mess with
