If you’ve never used Vidblaster before, its important to note that you’ll need a very fast machine, due to the fact its software-based, it hammers the CPU really hard. Those upcoming Intel Sandy bridge chips look very inviting indeed and would mean you could stream up to 1080p, assuming your internet speed is up to it. Good thing we have that NBN..
