Elgato Stream Deck – Game Capture HD integration

Elgato Stream Deck is easy to setup and use.

This article goes over the Actions that are available for use with Elgato Game Capture HD software.

Please Note:  Elgato Stream Deck does not come bundled with an Elgato Gaming capture device.  If you wish to use the Actions described in this article, you would need to separately purchase an Elgato Gaming capture device.

Once you choose that Scene, it will be immediately activated.
