How Do I Connect My Firestick to My Laptop with HDMI?

Are you tired of watching your favorite shows on a small screen? Do you want to connect your Firestick or TV streaming device to your computer or Mac? If so, you’re in luck! We’ve got a simple method for you to do just that.

First, you’ll need a video capture card, which you can purchase for around $15. The link to purchase it will be in the description box below. You’ll also need a free program called OBS, which you can download for Mac and Windows computers.

Once you have the video capture card and OBS downloaded, the setup process is straightforward. Plug the Firestick or other streaming device into the video capture card, power it up using the USB, and connect the capture card to your computer using the HDMI port.

Open OBS and select the plus sign at the bottom. From there, choose “video capture device” and name it whatever you’d like. Then, select the USB video option and scroll down to the bottom of the page. You should see your streaming device in the background, but make sure it’s not asleep.

Next, select the “use custom audio device” option and choose “settings” from the bottom right-hand corner. From there, go to “audio,” then “advanced,” and choose the speaker option. Apply and select “OK.”

Finally, select the settings widget at the bottom and then click “advanced settings.” Find the name you created or kept as a default, select the drop-down option, and choose “monitor and output.” Close the window, right-click anywhere on the screen, and select the full-screen option.

And that’s it! You can now enjoy your favorite shows on a larger screen. We hope this method has been helpful to you!
