So recently i've been trying to get into the streaming scene, and ive been trying to fiddle around with Open Broadcasting Software to get the best quality for my internet speed and computer settings. My rig is as such
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model
EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
It's a detailed list, as i just copied and pasted the links from newegg. Anyway my upload speed is about 10 Megabits. On average i get 2-3 megabytes per second. Whenever I try to stream at 30-60 fps with 1000kb buffer rate, my stream reportedly does ok but my game seems to stick around 30-40 fps. Im trying to figure out if some setting is not set right or something as it seems like my computer should be able to do better than this. Minecraft gets around 2-3gb of allocated Memory as well. I also use x264 "Fast" for video encoding in OBS. I think that's all the information I can give, other than the fact I play in 1920x1080 and downscale it to 720.
