Note : (I haven't tried it on the newer consoles, this works amazingly with the PlayStation 2! I have a playstation 3 but I don't have a Avermedia Extreme Cap u3 yet. *BUT WITH THIS TUTORIAL IT WILL WORK THE EXACT SAME WAY* (I'm using a bluetooth USB streaming stick)
Step 1 : Make sure you have your oculus rift fully connected to your pc.
Step 2 : Power up (the console of your choice)
Step 3 : When your console is up and running setup your (capture card) with your console and pc.
Step 4 : Once the capture card is fully setup, then open up your software on your PC. (For this tutorial I am using windows Movie maker. (If you're not sure how to set up a capture card with WMV you can use this tutorial : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1kevT5GWFc
Step 5 : Once your software is fully set up and running you're going to open up (Xsplit Broadcaster)
Step 6 : Once Xsplit is up and running, click on the (ADD) button. Once this action is performed, click (Screen region) Once you see the screen fade, and you see the red lines click over the live video on Movie maker and drag to only where you see the gameplay.
Step 7. Once you've done the previous step, you'll notice that the picture is small in Xsplit. Take your cursor and click on the corner of the image and drag it into the full screen of Xsplit.
Step 8. Once you've followed the previous step, open up (Stereoscophic player) once you've performed this action, you'll see a small box, with four tabs. "File", "View", "Playback", and "Help. Now I want you to click on the (VIEW) tab. Then click, "VIEWING METHOD" once you've clicked viewing method then finally click on (Oculus Rift) mode, not sure where it is? Its located between "iZ3D" and "SIS attachment".
Step 9. Good, now that you've clicked that, click (FILE) then "Live video". Once you click on live video then select Xsplit.
Step 10, now if you did this correctly, you should see the game fully running on (Stereoscopic player). Now be sure to take the small box, and drag it over to your Oculus Rifts screen (Make sure your monitor isn't mirrored) and full screen the (Stereoscophic player)
Step 11: Be sure to enjoy your favorite game!
NOTE: If you have a capture card that will record (Also PC gameplay) this is probably if not the best solution to getting rid of those 3rd party drivers.
This took me maybe about an hour to figure out, because I had no idea how to use stereoscophic software. I'm aware of there being another way of doing it without Xsplit, but as of now. I have no idea how to do it without Xsplit.
