Last night I was trying to do a video with my son, where he was playing the video game Roblox. When I went to add it as an input, the logo came-up, but when it loaded, the screen was just white. Is there a setting I need to change to be able to include this? Thanks so much!

I feel your pain, as my kids love to do Minecraft and Roblox vids. I've had the same issue with certain window captures in the past but always record their gameplay with their iPads and HDMI capture card. The Roblox PC version has a recording functionality built-in, although I don't have any personal experience with it... maybe this will help.

If a program makes heavy use of video hardware acceleration, as games tend to do, then it can be impossible for wholly software-based things to capture the stream being displayed.

Instead, you need to capture the output of the device into a separate system. Capturing game play is what initially gave rise to capture devices capable of 1920x1080p60. I sometimes split the output to be able to display it on a monitor and capture it into vMix.
