Best Settings for Quality your live stream

If you do try pushing 1080p I highly recommend changing your bitrate to somewhere between 4500 and 6,000 just start at the bottom and slowly work your way up until you find what works best for you but trust me there’s a pretty good chance 1080p will cause your stream to drop a ton of frames if you don’t already have a really nice PC and a fantastic upload speed but before you even finalize doing 1080p just continue watching the video because in a couple more minutes I’m gonna be spending bitrate in more detail and I think you guys should stick around for that but really my take on it is that 720p will still be providing you with the crispy looking stream won’t cause your PC to slow down it can be a great experience for viewers and as long as you have a decent internet connection you should be able to play and stream without any random big spikes which is exactly what you want and trust me the majority of streamers wouldn’t do to 720p

If there was that big of a difference between a 1080p and 720p so I’m just gonna quickly skip over the bitrate and we’ll come back to that in a second anyways I don’t really know anyone who uses a custom buffer size so I always leave that unchecked but for a keyframe interval you always want to change this to two seconds I’m pretty sure that’s what most streaming platforms actually ask you to do too so just do that to be safe but anyways moving on from that we’ve got the CPU preset and this part is actually important as it allows you to improve your video quality even more than the bitrate does especially if you’re playing a game with a lot of animation like falling rain lightning and things you might find in games like fortnight Minecraft overwatch etc so this step actually depends on how good was PC you actually have and most of the time you’ll end up experimenting with different settings to find the sweet spot

If you don’t know what to use and just go ahead and start the default which I believe is very fast and move your way closer to the slower side but each time you bump it up do a test stream and play something just to make sure that your PC can handle it but a quick summary of all these is that if you have a super nice PC you’ll want to bump it up closer to the slower side and I say that because the slower it is the more time it actually has to process all the visuals that you’re actually trying to stream I think the lowest you’d ever want to go would be very fast I don’t think you should have read ultra fast or super fast because that’s going to result in a really pixelated stream which I don’t think anyone would want to watch and I’m pretty sure you don’t even want to be streaming tv2 Malaysia.
