Can I Capture from My DVD or Blu-ray Player?

DVD and Blu-ray signals via HDMI will not be recognized by the Livestream Broadcaster, Livestream Studio, or the Livestream Producer software as sources via HDMI or DVI.

This is due to High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). HDCP-encrypted content is currently not supported by any Livestream products at this time. The system is meant to stop HDCP-encrypted content from being played on unauthorized devices, or devices which have been modified to copy HDCP content. 

Note: Blackmagic Design capture devices are not able to work with signals from content protected sources by law. HDCP content protection is a hardware based encryption, and therefore can be present on a device even if you are using content that you have the rights to capture.
