Twitch streamer Chbinsky made the best of his limited resources and managed to stream Death Stranding from his PS4 without the use of a capture card.

For aspiring Twitch streamers out there who don’t own a gaming PC, the option to stream from your Xbox One and PS4 remains a popular option.

However, this streamer decided he didn’t want to go through the PS4, as problems like low quality and lag can occur when you stream a demanding game. This can lead to issues like artifacts popping up on the screen when you’re playing a fast-paced game, an issue Chbinsky wanted to ignore.  

Death Stranding, being one of the best looking games of this console generation, would definitely fit into that category.

SonyWhy not play a weird game with a weird setup?

Instead of using a capture card and connecting his PS4 to his PC, Chbinsky hooked up a camera and filmed his entire TV and instead of a traditional facecam overlay, he used a mirror.

It’s definitely one of the most bizarre setups we’ve ever seen someone use on Twitch, and what’s even more surprising is it actually worked out fine.

A big part of “making it” on Twitch is having the ability to stand out from the sea of other streamers, and it’s safe to say that streaming an entire TV and having a mirror for your camera is a decent gimmick to attract viewers.

Of course, a gimmick like this can only take you so far, but he has been capitalizing on the hype surrounding the latest by Hideo Kojima.

Chbinski debuted this exotic and elaborate setup with the launch of Death Stranding, as he was streaming with a much more traditional setup to that point.

As the initial hype around the game ends, it will be interesting to see what he decides to do.

The bizarre streaming setup has paid off so far in terms of viewers, so it might be worth keeping on what pops up on the stream in the future. For the time being, Chbinski will be able to enjoy this sudden burst of fame and hope to keep it up.

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
