For those of you would like to stream but your computer can't handle it, or you don't want to pay xsplit for features so it doesn't look like dog shit, you can start using Open Broadcaster Software(OBS). I just started messing with it last night and it works great. Lower CPU usage and allows high sound quality and can stream at high 720/1080 better and easier on your computer than xSplit. And everything about it is free!. Give it a try, much better than xsplit!

I found out that OBS is "smarter" on CPU usage compared to XSplit so that it uses less when less is happening and vice versa but during an arenamatch the usage is exactly the same because it uses the same encoder. XSplit is still abit more fine tuned that OBS, but OBS is better just for the reason that XSplit wants you to pay for the "special" features that OBS gives for free.
But has anyone checked if you can use OBS to stream and make money out of it? Can you use it for commercial purposes?

I don't know about OBS, but last time I bothered with streaming tech there was also a pretty good free program called ffsplit. It used ffmpeg for encoding, and it wouldn't surprise me if OBS does so as well. These are all just GUIs/shells, they have very little impact on performance considering how much resources the encoding itself takes (they maybe take 1-2% of the overall use).

Just use whichever is more comfortable for you. The only downside of xsplit that I can think of is that you can't disable its preview, but again that's a very minor difference in the big picture. It's all about how you configure the encoder.

Edit: actually this is the first program that works with 64bit WoW right off. That's already amazing compared to everything else I've tried. Looks like there's enough settings/options to make it comparable to the functionality of xsplit, which ffsplit didn't have. Looks pretty damn good

Repped for finally seeing this posted somewhere! Greatly outperforms and outclasses Xsplit and FFsplit.

Are you playing in Fullscreen mode? I know that many streaming programs have issues if you play in fullscreen mode using a screen region and not a game source. I personally don't play LoL, but if it has a Windowed (Fullscreen) option or something of that sort then try that out and see if you still have the issue.

Caribou is completely right, play in windowed(full screen) mode or just plain windowed. most streaming programs don't work with Fullscreen
but Windowed(full screen) is so much like fullscreen, it doesn't matter.
