My friend who is watching my stream of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has told me than the FPS is blocky and the gameplay stutters. I have also noticed that I have 1 red bar in game when playing. It's not laggy per se, but it takes the whole clip in a gun to kill someone and hitmarkers only appear after 4-5 seconds of shooting at someone.

My settings are like this:

Is there anything I can do to decrease my ping (and increase the FPS) when streaming?

  • You have to make sure you have at least 1 or 2 Mbit/s more upload speed than the bitrate you are streaming with, otherwise you begin experiencing lag. Also make sure your PC (especially CPU) is good enough for x264's CPU encoding; it takes a good amount of resources.

  • You are trying to stream at 3.5 Mbits and only have ~2 Mbits of upload speed? This doesn't work. Both you and your viewers get a bad streaming experience; you as the streamer experience severe lag/high ping in online games and your viewers might not even see the stream because twitch's automatic quality control gives your stream a bad rating. Refer to help.twitch.tv/customer/portal/articles/…, especially the line saying "Max bitrate should be 3300 or 80% of your upload throughput, whichever is lower."
