Hey. Running a stream on both a solid PC and solid internet, wondering if it's maybe my open broadcaster settings that is causing these problems.

Got around 90-100 download and 10-20 upload with my internet.

Running with:

i5 Sandy Bridge 2500K
12GB ram
Windows Ultimate 7

My settings is:

Quality Balance: 8
Max Bitrate: 3400
Buffer Size: 3200
Codec: MP3 Bitrate: 320

Resolution Downscale 1.50 (1280x720)
FPS: 30

Thanks for any help!

First of all I think you use abit too much bitrate. Usually between 2500-3000 is maximum you should use. Reason of this is that because people with worse internet then you will experience lag while viewing your stream due to the high quality.

The more bitrate that is used the more bandwidth it need to be used to both be able to stream it aswell as watching it.

Ur processor is decent and should be able to handle streaming so my suggestion would be to try use a slower CPU preset for better quality and less bandwidth usage or the other way around to see if the problem disappear.

I'd recommend using these settings to make ur overall stream quality really smooth and hopefully fix ur problem:

Make sure you make a Game Capture scene before starting stream up!

Show me ur results when ur done :D
