Sorry to bump, but this guide isn't showing up? I'm trying to figure out the best settings so I can stream as I've been having issues with it being choppy, especially when I click away from fire pro (which if I cant do that makes it hard to chat and stuff while I stream.)
If you don't have a second monitor, using the mobile app may help. Otherwise you can pop out the chat window. However, your stream feed will likely be 15+ seconds behind the actual gameplay being broadcast. I usually have my game running on one screen to watch on the OBS window and another window open on my other screen with my broadcast running as if I were another viewer.
To get your stream setup correctly, you can try the OBS Estimator and see if it helps:http://www.obsapp.net/estimator/
You'll need to know your hardware specifications and internet speeds. For Twitch you probably don't want to surpass 3500kbps - I don't go over 3000kbps. The max you want is 4000kbps, and even then that's pretty overkill for a non-partnered stream. Anything over that and you're running the risk of being reprimanded by Twitch for abusing bandwidth.
In the case of hardware, if you system struggles with World on it's own, then it will more than likely struggle even while streaming. You'll want to set it up so that you'll be downscaling to 720p. 1080p is not worth the effort unless you have a very good PC and very good internet connection.
You'll also need your stream key which you should find by replacing "yourtwitchname" in the following link:https://www.twitch.tv/yourtwitchname/da ... /streamkey
Copy or Right-click "Open in New Tab" will get you the full link.
You'll need to be logged in for it to show up successfully.
I suggest downloading and running TwitchTest to see which server you should ping to. If you're in the Midwest or East Coast, I recommend either the Chicago or Ashburn server.
You can download that here: https://r1ch.net/projects/twitchtest
That should get you started.
