I was wondering how you stream live video from your PS3 to your computer without a capture card so that you can record game play on your computer to later upload to youtube.

Certain computers have TV Tuners already built into them with RCA ports in them. However that's essentially just a built-in Capture card. You'd need a capture card and then from there you'd use the A/V Multi Out that comes with you PS3 and plug it into the Capture card.

So basically I'm unaware of a way to do it without a Capture Card. EzCaps go for around 10 dollars American on Amazon and if you configure it correctly you can get some pretty good quality out of them.

Depending on your TV, it may have an analog output (mostly through RCA) and you can capture it from the tv output. Though I sounds like it will not really look because the HDCP copy protection.

The best thing I would recommend is a hauppauge hd pvr. Though it is a capture card, it also has a throughput to the TV while it is capturing the component video and audio. It is usually the standard for gamers streaming/recording while playing. Not causing any real lag when capturing.

I would recommend the Happague HD PVR, because it still has a pass through to the tv, preventing large ammounts of video lag usually due to the device capturing. I think there are some like products now.
