    Ok, we need a thread for overall Livestreams on Ogre Media besides just the OGT thread.

    We are going to try to start streaming more often and at different times than we did before. The goal is to get more experience by doing it more often:). Any announcements regarding the livestream will be made here.

    Ok, ended up testing the Twitch channel today without even knowing it lol. I had hooked up my software to Twitch before taking time personal time off and never got it to run. Today, I did get it running without a microphone, but did not realize it was also on Twitch. Also, hearing some static so will have to work that out as well.

    Glad it sounded good besides that. Was so good not using Fraps for a change:). The noise started after the first game or you heard something besides the static then?

    For OGT, shooting for tomorrow at the normal time if possible. Should have the livestream then whether it is voice or not.

    However, going to try again at least one time before that, probably with voice.

    Feedback for today's video. Static seems to be gone as far as I can tell. Sound seemed pretty solid volume wise by the end. Looked ok however the FPS was a bit choppy. Sound was a bit behind too, I suspect it may have been from twitch in the background (could hear it a little bit). As long as that's paused we wont hear it and will probably help with performance. If it doesn't help then you may need to lower the video quality so it's easier on your system as it all seems to be a performance issue... unless it's bandwidth, idk was the game laggy for you?

    Overall it was pretty solid.

    Yeah, didnt hear the static so the microphone must have solved that after all:).

    Yea, the sound was weird a few times and it sounded like an echo since I was in Twitch too. Hmmm, did Kit pause the video in Twitch and just look at chat? If so, that would likely help that echo:).

    Haven't watched it yet, but didnt notice a huge FPS slowdown though I did notice a little while playing. However, it was miles ahead of what Fraps did in Brawlhalla:).

    Kyt uses a second computer (a chromebook if we wanna be specific) to monitor chat and keep an eye on the video. Doing it all on one PC I'd advise just watching the chat, pause the video, en fact I think you can even pop out the chat itself and close out the video page completely. The recorder will pick it up otherwise but more importantly frees up more resources (processor and bandwidth) for the game/stream itself.

    Another way to do it is use the twitch app on a smartphone or tablet to the side of the PC.

    Yeah I suspect streaming and playing might be pushing your PC (I mean it does even newer ones that aren't i5, i7), thankfully Brawlhalla isn't crazy intensive or anything so it's an easy place to start. However I bet playing the video in the background probably intensified it, so that'd be an easy way to get some resources back without any streamlining of the settings. I'd see how that goes first, if it's still too bad then dropping the video quality should help. What is your monitor by default, 1080p?

    Ah, that would explain a lot then. Yea, I need to pause the video then on my PC. Hmmm, might can try those as well.

    Yes, my monitor is 1080 p Full HD. Its also fairly wide. What effect does that have on it you think?

    The monitor size itself doesn't matter at all but the resolution does because I think OBS defaults it's quality to your monitors native resolution, which means it might be doing 1080p, which is great if your PC (and bandwidth) can handle it but 1080p takes a bit more (processor and bandwidth) to do than 720p. So cranking that down might help performance too, it wouldn't have a huge impact on quality either since Twitch really doesn't do the greatest in quality for non-partner channels anyways. However if 1080p works then stick with it as it's better for Youtube exports.

    Ok we did the stream for OGT today with voice:).

    Wasn't perfect, but a good solid first effort. Turning off the twitch video certainly helped. Think we had one match that was real bad performance wise but at least it did not crash and it did get better after that even as we added more players:).

    From the network meter in game it kinda looks like you may have a bandwidth problem more than anything. I'd try 720p and see if that smooths out the rest of it.
