I love my Xbox One. I love the games, the service is regularly strong, and the subscription is valuable. Let's get that straight. I don't even know how a PS controller feels anymore, and I'm a bumbling idiot on Mouse and Keyboard.
As someone who enjoys taking gameplay footage and editing it, the most efficient way of doing that for me has been to stream via Mixer to get 90 minutes of footage, download it, and chop it up on my laptop. The 2:00-5:00 capture feature, though handy and fast, doesn't leave room for re-takes or multiple angles for shots.
(fbs) is, as far as I'm concerned, straight up evil. It's a mess of unmoderated mis/disinformation, zero privacy, and we even call getting manipulated by a company "getting Zucc'd". The T&C for using that service can, and likely will, include them being able to re-use, edit, broadcast, replicate or duplicate any and all images, audio, video or text that a streamer broadcasts.
On one hand, that's needful for maintaining standards of what people do and say on (fbs) or any platform. On the other hand, we know what (fb) does with people's data. Giving them a free pass to do whatever they want with my voice, gameplay, in-game chat, image, etc is in no small way an absolute surrendering of any material I edit and monetize in any way in the future.
I'm not willing to do that. I'm not willing to take material I script, voice-over act, or overlay my face on and just hand it to the most notoriously information-abusive company known to me just because I have a hobby that might make any amount of money in the future.
Admittedly, it's an unlikely set of circumstances. I'm not doing it for anyone else, and I rarely share it. The fact is, we know how (fb) uses and sells information, and I'm not comfortable with giving them access to use something I made just because I happen to need a way to record longer segments.
I don't know. I'm conflicted like mad. I don't want to give up my hobby, I don't want to move from Xbox, but I damned well don't want to hand everything over to Zuccing criminals. I'm not in a position to switch to PC and just use my own data streams, nor am I skilled with MaK gaming. I don't know how else to capture stuff for personal use.
