I'm trying to set up a stream but I have no idea how to do it, I've tried using justintv but the quality seems very poor and I don't think I can link that to mobafire.

To save me a lot of stress and hassle could someone post the programs I can use to set up a stream?

Thanks

I don't think that's his problem, Virago.

Xokai: You're wondering how and what to use to setup a quality and good looking stream, right? What software to use, settings, host, etc.

Scrax: Yes that's my problem, I've tried using justin.tv but the quality is terrible. I've also downloaded xsplit but again the quality wasn't great not sure if it get better if I pay for it.

I would obviously prefer not to spend too much on software but if my only choice is to spend some cash for a good picture I really don't mind. What I'm really looking for is something that's easy to setup and use and doesn't an over the top system to run.

My specs are:
Phenom II x4 965 3.40 GHz
4GB DDR3
1TB HHD
GTX 460

I use xSplit, and it's truly a great piece of software. You just have to fix your settings! :) Purchasing it won't give you any greater quality, so don't worry about that. However, if you plan on streaming a lot and try and get a viewer-base, you should purchase it as it's going out of BETA soon.

My Internet speed is 50Mb/s down and 5Mb/s up, and I manage to stream full 1080p, though that takes a beast of a computer to pull off. Could you tell me how fast yours is? Will help me determine which settings I could suggest for you.

Just use speedtest.net if you're unsure of the speed (take a server close to the region you play in on League of Legends).

I use OWN3D.com and my xSplit settings are as follows:

Video encoding:

Preset: XSplit Default (this should always be XSplit Default, unless you got a NASA computer :P)
Quality: 9 (10 isn't worth it)
VBV Buffer (kbit): 2200
VBV Buffer Max Bitrate (kbps): 2200
Resolution: Default Stage Resolution*
Resize method: Default


Audio Encoding:

Format: 44.100 KHz 16 Bit Stereo
Codec: AAC LC
Bitrate: 128000


* = Set the resolution you want to stream in via: "View" - "Resolution". You HAVE to change this to stream in a certain resolution.


You can add me on skype via cryoscrx if you have further questions :)
