    Here is a quick and dirty video showing VB and vMix working together. Look at test 3. http://www.mindittv.net/cms1/index.p...id=7&Itemid=59

    Note that that I had older versions of both products installed at the time.

    Nice job Andrew, very informative. I still don't get it though, how running a second program like vMix on top of VB makes the CPU work less :-)

    From what I understand, and you can see Martin describe this on the StudioTech Live episode, he has coded vMix to primarily use the GPU whereas VB primarily uses the CPU

    Ah, yeah, good old GPU. I wonder why Mike did not code VB to take advantage of current technology :-)

    How well does it stream to the CDN? I am using an older i5 and Vidblaster is a resource hog!

    It uses FMLE as the encoder/streamer as does VidBlaster ...so no difference on the encoding/streaming in terms of CPU. Also, as with Vidbalster you can use external encoders or subsistute FMLE with other products.
