    Red face Webcam for streaming on Twitch.tv

    Hi ladies and gents. I've been looking around to find a good webcam to start using while I stream on Twitch.tv and am looking for some suggestions. Thanks

    Basically any webcam will do, since you'll have it in a tiny window even a 2MP will do you fine.

    Just don't pay more than $50 or so. Most, if not all, "1080p" webcams are upscaled 720p, and most 720p webcams are upscaled 480p. I have a Creative Live Socialize HD 1080 and while it does just fine for Skype calls it is horrible for any serious recording.

    Thanks for the in-depth clarification Marest, I was wondering if I should go for a 720p or 480p camera, but it's obvious now.

    You could also use a hd cam instead of a webcam, if you already have one.
