Last night, the saga of Dead Planet 3 continued. Along with this saga came yet another attempt to optimize my streams and get to my semi-professional level look that I’ve been aiming for.
So, I decided to try out a program that people seem to rave about, OBS. Once I got my stuff together to get the program to properly capture Windows Media Center, it did look like it might be a good choice of program. However… However… The DCs. The program worked good for an hour, but the moment a spike came in my connection, it simply freaked out. The program dropped the stream about 3 times within ten minutes. Thus, I had to retreat back to Xsplit.
There’s a chance that setting my bandwidth at 1500 was too high, so I might give it another test. I also think I accidentally had messed with a setting in Xsplit that may have contributed to Harv having the stream freeze on him. For that, I apologize. I noticed the error after I finished streaming and fixed that setting.
I think I’ve also might have thought up of one more thing to help improve Xsplit so that it wouldn’t take so many resources.
Anyway, if you want to watch last night’s addition to the saga, check it out below. Though, there’s going to be minor holes in the conversation during the points in which the connection dropped or I was switching programs. Sorry.
For the record, if there is a noticeable difference between the first and last recordings, feel free to let me know. I might give OBS another chance. I don’t know.
