Yodeck should work fine with all UVC (USB Video Class) devices. These include HDMI USB Capture Cards, USB webcams, other USB capture cards, and more. We have yet to find a USB Video Class device that does not work properly.
Recommended HDMI Capture Cards
The following USB HDMI Capture Card is very popular and can be found on Amazon, eBay, and local retailers worldwide. These are OEM and can be found under several brands and in different colors. It supports up to 4K input and up to 30 FPS at 1080p/4K. The capture resolution displayed on the Player’s screen is up to 1080p, and the quality is quite good for general use.
The device gets quite hot, so some sellers bundle the units with a small USB extension cable for connecting it to the Yodeck Player. We recommend it too.
These come at a very low cost, retailing at $15, and they seem to work fine. We have performed prolong testing; however, we cannot guarantee long-term reliability. Online reviews are positive.
We have also tested high-quality HDMI Capture Cards from well-known vendors. We have tested several devices from AVerMedia , including AVerMedia Live Gamer Ultra and AVerMedia Live Gamer Portable. These also work exceptionally well, but prices are higher.
Overall, all similar devices should work fine. You can search eBay or Amazon for USB HDMI capture, and you will get hundreds of results!
We have tested a handful of USB Cameras. These are really straightforward to support, so almost all USB cameras should work.
In case you want to get more technical and dive into the details, here is what we need to be able to use a USB video device:
- Support of UVC (USB Video Class) profile.
- Support for MJPG (Motion JPEG) capture codec.
As long as these two basic requirements are fulfilled, then the device should work fine.
