Posted May 07, 2018 09:50:24 Digital video recorders, including recorders for laptops and tablets, have become popular in the gaming community, with many players relying on them to record and share gameplay.
But there’s a catch: while the devices are relatively cheap to buy, you need a license from a recording company to use them.
While you can buy the necessary hardware, you can’t stream or download the games themselves, nor do you get to download them.
The only way to make those files available for the public is to buy them, but this process takes several months to complete.
And as with any new technology, it’s not always easy to get started.
A group of gamers who go by the handle ‘Duckman’ have set up a website called DUCKMAN.tv, which aims to help people with the process of buying a game recording device and streamer, and which they hope will serve as a resource for other gamers.
DUCKMIND.TV’s website, duckman.tv It’s not uncommon for players to spend hours getting their licenses approved for use on the site, which is available to those who have already bought a license and who have a valid reason for doing so.
Duckman is aiming to make the process as easy as possible.
“The only way we can actually give you the opportunity to buy a device, is to give you access to the source code,” said the group’s co-founder, Matt O’Connor.
“That way you can try it out and tell us if it works for you.”
O’Brien, who runs an online marketing firm called Media-Engine, said he had been using a game console for over a decade, so he had some experience in the process.
But after trying the software, he said, he realised that it was more of a hassle than it was worth.
“I had a lot of people email me telling me that they had gotten their licenses, and that they thought it was really, really easy,” O’Connor said.
O and O’Connell said they were hoping to build a site that would help those who had not tried the software and who were interested in getting involved. “
So a couple of weeks later I put out an invitation, and they got the game.”

Ducking out of the house Duckmen said it’s easy to spend a lot on a gaming console and forget about the fact that you can still make a living doing so from home.
“People want to be able to do what they want, and we want people to be given the opportunity, so why not just let them have that?”
Dumping a game recorder can be tricky, especially if the games are big and expensive.
It takes up a lot more space than a gaming machine, and the console is usually a larger piece of equipment, so the equipment can get lost.
Dipping a game cartridge into a duffel bag is also a challenge, as cartridges are normally not designed to be emptied into the trash.
“You can easily have a game record running on your phone or in your pocket and have it sitting there on a table or in a drawer,” said O’Coe.
“But the thing that we’re hoping to do is have that on a portable device that you could take home and put it on a coffee table, or put it in a bag and then put it away.”
To make the most of the portable equipment, Duckmans plans to offer a ‘streamer’ version of the software.
“We’re looking to make that a little bit more of an option for people,” said Matt OConnor.
The site has already attracted some attention, and OConnor said he’s been contacted by a number of people who have been able to get access to their games through the site.
“There’s a lot we’ve seen from people who’ve had their licenses expire, and then they’re trying to get their games to stream,” OConnor explained.
“It’s something that we want to make a platform for.”
DUCKMEN.TV aims to provide users with a place to stream their games, but its launch has been met with mixed responses from some players.
One gamer, who goes by the name of ‘Shad’, said that streaming games on his tablet was “not exactly a pleasure”, and he hoped to find a better solution.
Another gamer, named ‘Gavin’, said he was not “feeling so good about it” as he had not yet heard of DUCK.tv.
“In order for me to enjoy gaming, I need to be playing,” he said.
But DUCK is also making inroads into the gaming industry.
“Gaming is the only thing I’m missing right now,” said Gavin.
“Right now I’m not
