I enjoy playing MMORPG's, and have wanted to do this for years. Most people refer me to FRAPS, but I have not only had issues with this program (as in it crashes quite often), but I'm looking for a better solution.
What I want to do is send my video out (from my video card) into an SVGA splitter, with one going to my monitor (to be able to see the video while playing the game) and the other going to another computer (possibly SVGA input?) to record with. The problem I have run into with this idea is that input cards don't seem to have SVGA input, they support Composite and/or SVideo inputs, but not SVGA.
I'm not saying that FRAPS isn't a good program, just that I'm looking more for a hardware answer. Not only does FRAPS crash often on my computer, but it also (and most people I've talked to have had this issue also) slows down the game play quite a bit. DirectX games are resource intensive and FRAPS (as are most video capture programs) also. This causes a lot of latency while playing high-speed games.
Any help with a hardware solution (or if it can't be done thru hardware even another solution aside from FRAPS) would be greatly appreciated.
