Alpha Release. Osx open sourced piped Driver.

So because I talked to the game show people and they said it was ok to release here, the game show piped driver for HD HD 60 and Pro lines, this is a alpha driver, it may work on your system it may not.


Things to note, you will have to adjust video audio latency,  650 -1500 respectively. 


From your source, run ./elgato-hd -r <resolution>, whereas <resolution> can be 1080p or 720p for a HDMI source, c1080p, c1080i, c720p or c576p for a component source or 576i for a composite PAL source. Hd 60 and HD 60 PRO wont be able to use C sources as they do not offer Component connections.


Any questions feel free to ask. Download Attached.

  • Required driver

    libusb --osx may ship with this if not you will have to install brew to get lib usb.



    Unzip file

    From terminal navigate to the folder.

    Make sure the firmware folder is also in the same directory.

     ./elgato-hd -r <resolution>, whereas <resolution>  first resolution is input second is output.  so say 1080p 1080p or 1080p 720p output.

    Use the file name I may have forgot I renamed the file to keep local version testing from production version.

    that command has to be done in terminal, once you are done you must hit CMD c to end

    The piped output file will be the file you need to add to gameshow as a video

  • You would need to install brew then brew install libusb, it may work without it , It should be compiled directly into it but just in case if it does not work and says requires .

  • I do not know how to make it more simple.

    Extract archive , from your osx terminal navigate to that folder, run it from terminal.

    When you see the file it makes open game show open your project in game show add it as a video navigate to where it is, put that in there setup stream as normal sync your audio video like normal.

  • Ok, I will upload the original firmware I built the driver on, I think the new one they sent me may have a bug in it , sorry about that, with not anyone testing  I did not know if it was just a local issue.

    From my understanding it should work for all three original devices,HS HD60 and HD60Pro. The HD60S probably wouldn't work at all as I do not believe Jamie posted this with the firmware for that device due to how new it is vs when he was working on this.

    well then it doesnt work woth my HD60

    Thanks a lot to OP for his hard work, I hope a fix will come soon and fix our issue :)

  • The only thing I can think of is some of the Hd 60s have different Device Id's then some of the others.  Before posting this Bryce tested the driver.  Can those of you with non working version send me the PCI device ID of your device, if it does not match I will add it to the list.

  • ok, I installed Homebrew and Libusb. I researched how to navigate through the terminal and I still can't get it to work. I put the folder on my desktop where I navigated in terminal. I ran the code a few times trying out different things....

    "Gabriels-iMac:~ gabrielperez$ cd desktop

    Gabriels-iMac:desktop gabrielperez$ cd elgato-hd60
