Livestream Thing I Have Noticed Bitrate Wise...

Question

I am an Xsplit user normally for my PC and console streaming etc.. but until support for it is added.. I have setup and used the built in livestream when I absolutely had to.

 

The thing I noticed and why I am writing this is.. The roxio is a upload is a hog. here is my example below:

 

1- I have a 30 down 5 up internet connection. I normally using xsplit set my bitrate to 3000 and my stream has always run perfectly smooth using a Black magic Intensity pro for console and also just xsplit for PC games etc. That is 3 out of my 5 upload etc.

 

2-However with the roxio now and it's internal streaming.. The bandwidth feature tells me about 2300 bitrate to use etc... however when i do so my stream pauses and hesistates as many of you are reporting.

 

3-After trial and error.. I have found the sweet spot for it for me.. 1750 on my streaming bitrate and i get no pauses or issues. Anything higher and it's a 50/50 chance it will have pauses and hesistations/lag.

 

What this means is whatever your upload is.. you really are gonna have to knock down your bitrate alot more than you would think or normal to get the inhouse streaming to function properly as you would want.

 

I had to take a 5 upload and only use 1750 of it.... but again if i used Xsplit.. i can set xsplit at 3000 and it runs crystal clear and completely smooth with no hesistation or lag at all.

 

So take this in mind when setting your up.. Whatever your upload is.. your gonna need to trial and error pretty good to find your sweet spot.

 

Here is an example of the in house livestreaming for me using the 1750 bitrate at 720P broadcast on twitch for reference.

have you updated to SP1.1 (http://www.roxio.com/enu/support/gamecapture-hd-pro/software_updates.html) which allows better control over the bitrate. Also, this is the 1st time for Roxio to add a built in live streaming feature. There are some bugs present and are being looked into.

 

Also, 3000 is crazy amount of bitrate to use. you can get 1080P with like 2000 but if you want to use that much, give it hell.

but like i said, currently there are some bugs and they are aware of them.

 

you can use Roxio and the capture method this way but you will need to set the audio delay (some times) doing this method.

I'm not complaining at all.. just throwing out suggestions and tips to help new users.

 

yeah i installed SP 1.1 first day i got the roxio..

 

3000 is high but I have the upload/bandwidth for it with ease and it's what I have used for years when using Xsplit.

 

Here is 3000 being used http://www.twitch.tv/top_sgt/b/319746406 on my previous twitch account.

ohh i trust me i didn't mean anything rude by that. I just have friends for stream with 5000 or more bitrate and it is pointless at most times.

whatever floats your boat in the end and if you have, use it

Yeah 3000 is actually the limit anyone wants to use on twitch.tv recommended straight from a twitch.tv.employee Anything higher and many people cannot view your stream with major problems viewing. I agree 5000 and others are quite overkill.
