Hello everyone, let me introduce myself. My name is James, and I am the media Coordinator over at Derailed( www.derailed.eu ). After the rise of alot of streamers, I thought to myself why not try and get even more streamers into the streaming area with the settings that i was using. This is where I created the guide here (http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=321498). After some debate around other forums with the settings I was using - I have came to the conclusion that I could get a more steady, and more presentable stream quality with the PC specification and internet bandwidth I had available. So I present to you guys, my newly created Xsplit settings :)
The PC specifications play a big role aswell in what your capabilities are when it comes to streaming. I would recommend a mid-high-end PC such as below (my specifications).
Processor: Intel Core i5 2500K 3.3GHz Socket 1155 Processor
CPU Cooler: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2
Memory/RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz
Graphics Card: Asus GTX 560Ti DirectCU II 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI Mini HDMI PCI-E
Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V LX Socket 1155 Onboard graphics output 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard
Hard Drives: 120 GB SSD with 1TB + 250GB
Power Supply: OCZ 600W
Internet Speeds (Checked with www.Speedtest.net):
Internet, where do I start with this point. A lot of people think "Oh I can stream as long as I have a good PC" Well - I'm sorry too burst your money filled pockets - But you can't just stream with a good PC - You need OK internet as well.
The above is my internet, Its pretty terrible - but I can get decent stream quality with it. You can see the quality I receive here: http://www.twitch.tv/derailedtv/b/331964931
As you can see, the quality isn't outstanding, but for the upload speed I have, I'm pretty happy with it! The location can be changed to whatever works best for you!
Now onto the settings that I use.
The settings I use in the broadcast window can be found above.
Along with these settings, I use:
Resolution: 1088x612 (16:9) - If you have a 16:9 monitor you are going to want to have this resolution, or at least another 16:9 resolution so that you do not have black bars.
If you have a 4:3 monitor, I would use 1024x768.
Frame Rate: 25FPS - You can increase this if you wish.
Scale Viewport: 10% - You should usually always have it at 10% as it reduces the amount of strain done to a CPU, but for some peoples needs it is best to have it higher.
So as you see, it as easy as that. I would like to ask you guys to please comment on this thread if it helps you guys out! If you need any more help just ask for it on this thread, and/or add me on skype - Lawson101. Also may i add, this guide mainly works for SC2 + LoL and games of that sort, it doesn't really work for FPS games as they shift around too much with action.
