1) Setting up the USB HDMI Capture Device

An HDMI Capture device needs to be setup in windows prior to using HDMI share. Many of the capture devices will install the driver by just plugging in the device.

select ‘Windows Key +P’ and choose duplicate. It is easiest to use a phone if you have an adapter to HDMI as they automatically share.
