When I live stream without a mic, it works beautifully. Soon as I select the mic input and click to begin, I get about 3-5 seconds before the program stops responding. I am using Windows 8, AMD Sempron Processor LE-1300 dual core at 2.3Ghz, 3 gigs ram. It's using the Realtek audio drivers to capture the mic. Tried regular and USB and neither will work.
