    Xsplit Gamecaster Guide

    Hi everyone !

    If you've recently purchased a Strix GTX 1060/1070/1080, Asus gives you a nice bonus with a full free year of Xsplit Gamecaster, so what is Xsplit Gamecaster? It's a neat little tool to stream and record your videos to show off your amazing gameplay to us and your friends. You can install Xsplit Gamecaster from the Strix dvd or you can install it from the Xsplit website.

    Click download under Xsplit Gamecaster and create an account.

    https://www.xsplit.com/

    To get your free year of Xsplit Gamecaster you'll need the PPID number and serial number, if you didn't install your gpu yet great, if you did you'll have to remove it from the motherboard to get the PPID number. The PPID number is the first set of numbers on a little white sticker just above the pcie x16 connector, the serial number is on the Strix box.

    Once you get the PPID number and serial number go here below, at the bottom of the page in blue follow the steps for the "1-Year Premium License Redemption", you will be presented with a license key and an email will also be sent to you with the key.

    Click Redeem Now !

    http://www.asus.com/event/2015/VGA/XSPLIT/index.aspx

    Now that you've got the key, open up Xsplit Gamecaster and click the little arrow to the right of your email/log in name and click "Redeem gift certificate".

    Once you're done streaming go to your YouTube account, it will automatically save and process what you've streamed, click on video manager and it will show this. Wait until it's done processing then click publish , the higher the resolution and the longer your gameplay the longer it will take to process.
