Streaming lag might come from different sources. Processing lag. The video encoding takes to much resources on your computer, monopolises CPU or disk Input Output. Uploading lag. The video takes to much size and reach the upload limit of your connection. The second is most likely to create high pings. To reduce the effect of 2. you need to compress ...

Unless you're planning on allowing people other than your group of friends to watch the game, any group video chat or screen sharing software would be perfect for your needs. Google Hangouts have incredibly low latency (< 1 second in my experience) and allow you to share your screen with others in the chat. Google Hangouts are also free if you already ...

Per Jim (listed as a Dev) on the Sourceforge Open Broadcaster Software Forum, OBS does not support fullscreen mode, but it is a planned future improvement. Currently, fullscreen games can't be captured via software means without using DXTory or something. Fortunately, I do have plans in the future to add fullscreen game capture, but because it's a ...

There is a new streaming service over at https://mixer.com/ which offers almost instant streaming (roughly 500ms in the worst case scenario) when using their FTL protocol. As long as your friends use a HTML5 compatible browser they'll see what you see with little to no visible latency. FTL will be rolling out to everyone over the next month or two by the ...

To put it simply, you're always going to get some kind of lag when you're streaming. Ping, in this case, is not directly affected; it's influenced by your remaining bandwidth while you're streaming. How much lag depends on your upload speed and your stream's bitrate. For example, I have a 1 Mbit/s upload speed, and everyone in my house suffers when I'm ...

According to a thread in the Twitch forums: Note that TTV_EC_QUEUE_TOO_LONG means the network queue is too long, which means the bitrate that the user set is not being sustained by their upload. Try lowering your bitrate to something more reasonable, preferably something much lower than 1024 Kbps.

The in-game streaming option are being developed at the current stage of the game. However, programs such as OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) are effective for recording such things quite well, with a much wider assortment of options.

To my knowledge, you can't explicitly start streaming. What you can do is set your security settings so that the public can view your streams. It appears to make the stream show up in the public section as I've had random people start my stream before when I was playing La Mulana.

Before you can stream your gameplay, you need to be able to record it. Unfortunately, the PS3 does not have recording functionality, so a screen capturing device is a necessity, even if you don't want to buy one. By far a simpler and better alternative, would be to buy a PS4 instead. It is not only capable of recording everything it can display, but it also ...

You will need to make sure that both the game and the streaming software are running off of the same graphics card. It looks like your computer has two graphics cards. An integrated and a discrete.

I found out what was going on. I play on a laptop that has two different graphics cards. An integrated card and a discrete graphics card. When you use Open Broadcaster make sure the game AND OBS are running off of the same graphics card. In my case, I had to go into the Nvidia control panel and manually set OBS to run on the discrete graphics card.

I assume since you are talking about Direct X that both you and your father are on PCs. What you are looking for is a VNC program. However, the problem you will run into is that DirectX runs on the local hardware it is executed on. Therefore it renders only on that particular computer's video card and monitor directly. Are you both inside one network (...

If you are using Nvidia, go to the Nvidia control panel, and select customize applications. There you should be able to change which video adapter OBS runs on. Restart the application and that should solve your black screen problem

I don't own an Xbox myself, but the type of files that should work is Half SBS. These are simply video files (avi, mpeg, mkv, etc.) that have the two images for 3D in the same frame, either side by side or top and bottom. Most 3D TV sets should recognize the signal as 3D and overlay the two images. The reason I believe it should work is because these are ...

Related to my answer to this question, there are several options for streaming live gameplay. Two noteable options would be Open Broadcaster and Xfire in combination with TwitchTV as shown in this video. Now the big catch is that you are going to need a lot of hardware to get the output from your XBox connected to a PC that can use these applications. ...

According to this streamers FAQ, he uses a capture card and OBS (open broadcasting software). A 3DS game capture card can be found here

If you have a decent enough Nvidia card, you should be able to use ShadowPlay through GeForce Experience, set to the Twitch mode. I've used it for quite a while now, and it has unparalleled quality, and doesn't really ruin your FPS.


2

A couple other options not mentioned. 1) If you have an nVidia card, use their Shadowplay utility instead of OBS. It encodes using the video card hardware and streams directly to Twitch, and will probably improve your performance. 2) If your router supports it, turn on QoS (Quality of Service). Set it up so the stream to Twitch is placed at the lowest ...

This used to be happened to me too. It turns out I had a bad router, which cannot handle too much connection session. Even though softwares like Skype don't take up a lot of bandwidth, it may require a lot of connection sessions.(I don't know how to explain, it's like passing a 1000g ball to a person, or passing 10 of 100g ball to 10 person.) If your router ...

Streaming from an Xbox One to a Windows 10 PC will be heavily dependant on the quality of your local network, whether that be via ethernet or WiFi, and the quality of the experience will be largely down to latency. The latency and quality of signal when using WiFi is dependant on the environment - that is, quality of walls, other WiFi networks in the same ...

I have thoroughly searched on this issue, and I don't believe that there is an ideal solution with the problems you have. At first, I thought about using Chrome Remote Desktop to port the monitor of a computer to her phone, but the controls would be horrible. Minecraft: Pocket Edition still isn't in sync with the normal version, so that is off limits as well....

The bandwidth used by the PS4 for Twitch streaming for the Best, High, Medium, and Low settings are 1500kbps, 1200kbps, 860kbps, and 520kbps respectively. Given these figures, the highest you can use with a 1Mbps limit would be Medium, and that's also assuming there aren't any other people/devices other than your PS4 sucking much of that limit. The biggest ...

I've found some useful information in the following posts: https://obsproject.com/forum/resources/capturing-streaming-your-retro-consoles-the-right-way.289/ https://www.reddit.com/r/speedrun/comments/2fvcy6/snes_capture_scanlines/ Both of these mention using some software called amarectv. It seems it was last updated in 2013, but this works on Windows ...

You've got ever so slightly better internet than myself. I've got 12Meg down, but only 700k up. Anyway, the good news, is you can stream. The bad news, is realistically, only at a very poor resolution realistically. Go onto youtube, and set the resolution to 360p. That is honestly about as good as you'll get it. It's to do with how many bits need to go up ...

Perhaps the simplest solution: Messages from the chat will appear on your screen. If you are recording your voice, the chat users can hear your replies via your stream. So just answer out loud, no mod required. (If not recording your voice, you can similarly type into the in-game chat so it appears on the video stream).

The problem is you upload speed =(. When you are streaming, you are sending a lot of data, so your ping will get highter. You may call to your internet service provider (ISP) to ask if they can raise your upload speed. Also try to decrease the quality of your stream. By quality I mean, for example, from 720p to 480p.

There isn't that much detail to go into this with. Plain in simple you can only (currently) do a live stream over twitch or the other one, which is not currently syncing in my brain..... So you have two options for now which is twitch or the other. Though you could take clips with the share button and show them like 15 minute segments via facebook or ...

You will need to employ a program that can create a virtual audio card that mixes in both devices (outputs) into one which can then be streamed out. The program I would recommend is Virtual Audio Cable (VAC). Setting it up may take a bit of reading, but this is what you need to do to get it up and running. I'm certain there are many guides for it! Good ...

Go to Broadcast Settings in options (ON pause), then turn bandwidth too the lowest it can get.

Go to options/broadcast settings/bandwidth and turn it all the way down.
