User Reviews for Elgato Screen Link

Doesn’t work at all

The iOS device says the screen is broadcasting but the capture computer just shows a black screen with no audio. The computer can capture other hardware devices just fine though. This app is broken.

Update your app

I loved this app until recently. Now I have horrible connection issues and it’s been driving me crazy. I thought it was my network for a while (which is stellar speed) but after so much troubleshooting, I realized the app hasn’t been updated in 9 months! Let an app go like that and it degrades. Very disappointed.

App does not work - deserves negative stars

Save your money. I bought the paid version two days ago and not only threw away $10 but lost time and energy that could have used elsewhere. I should have realized this app is worthless when the last update was 9 months ago as of Dec 2020.

Doesn’t Work at All

Elgato’s strength has always been its hardware, and this app is further proof of that. The problem isn’t the app itself, you pretty much just install it and then use it as a broadcast source from Control Center’s screen recording function.The problem is, and always has been, Elgato’s Game Capture software on the PC. I’ve spent hours troubleshooting, uninstalling, reinstalling, etc. Nothing I’ve done gets the Screen Link to show up as a source. Without that, this app is dead in the water.

Would give it no stars if I could

I can’t believe I purchased the pro version thinking it was going to make my experience better. I stream games online and started streaming mobile games. I use a Mac not a pc and to think that this app was suppose to be better for the Mac users... NOT!! Had me going back and forth with emails to elgato representatives just so they could feed me bs and not help me fix the issue. The truth of the matter is if you want to screen record online this is not the app to do so. I recommend using Streamlabs app trust me I noticed the difference right away. Elgato screen link is So much lag too many crashes too many headaches.

This is so good. If I hade a capture card it would be a lot easier to get a face cam but this is the next best thing. It has great resolution for being wireless. I could care less about the 2 second lag because how small of a youtuber I am. Thanks so much for this app Elgato. 😃

Constantly freezing

Read the reviews but decided to give it a shot anyways. Well that was a bad idea because I bought the pro version and basically threw away $12 because this freakin app used with Game Capture HD KEEPS FREEZING! Screen Link itself seems to be functional but the receiving program Game capture HD on my MacBook Pro constantly freezes and disconnects from my iPad. As I’m trying to use this to run a stream background with my iPad it’s super annoying to have this drop out mid-stream multiple times, reconnect everything only to have it drop out again after a few minutes. It runs well for maybe 5 minutes and then begins to lag really badly and finally just dies in a freeze. Useless

IF this app worked, it would be great. (It doesn’t)

I’m going to try to be as fair as possible because it’s listed for free and that is the only reason it isn’t a one star review. Setup was easy. Took less than five minutes to get it recording and broadcasting to OBS on my desktop. That’s when you begin to see just how poor this app is from a quality standpoint. I have fiber internet and consistently test upwards of 90 Mbps down and 75 Mbps up. The stream from the iPad is often delayed 10-15 seconds from the iPad to OBS (ridiculous). This affects the quality of stream to such a degree that this alone would be a convincing reason to avoid this app.The far, far more frustrating issue is the frequent, unavoidable error that occurs so frequently you might have just made a clicker game because that’s what it feels like whenever you have to dismiss the error dialog box “Live Broadcast to Screen Link has stopped due to: Attempted to start an invalid broadcast session” and then restart the stream. There is no troubleshooting to fix this. You feel happy when this doesn’t come up after two minutes, as it often decides to stop streaming within a minute of starting. The devs need to fix this before offering a PAID version with no evidence that the free version even works.

No development

I almost started using this and was about to buy the Pro version right away for unlimited screen sharing but realized this happened hasn’t been updated in 2 years. Yikes! You would think Elgato would keep this thing up to date!

Good one Elgato

The trial version worked great so I bought the pro version and now 4k capture utility doesn’t even recognize it... enjoy the 10 bucks Elgato that’s the last you’ll ever get from me for any of your products.. and I have several. I’ll be sure to give this product a nice review on my game stream... a review fitting of how well it works right now.
