Resolution and Frame Rates:

Our livestream channels support a resolution of up to 1080p. It is recommended to stick to 1080p or lower resolutions to ensure the stability of your stream.

Minimum upload speeds:

  • Acceptable quality (SD) = 480p at 30 FPS = up to 1.5Mbps

  • Good quality (HD) = 720p at 30 or 60 FPS = up to 4.5Mbps

  • High quality (Full HD) = 1080p at 30 or 60 FPS = up to 8.5Mbps

It is important to note that the maximum our channels will accept is the 8.5Mbps value. Thus, it is recommended to aim for the highest quality your available bandwidth can support.

Additionally, it is important to allocate 50% more bandwidth than the minimum required to ensure that your stream remains stable. For example, 10MB upstream should support an HD stream but might struggle with Full HD.

Internet Connection:

A stable internet connection is crucial for a successful livestream. We recommend a wired internet connection whenever possible.

Network Activity:

It is essential to consider other activities that may be occurring on the same network or device at the same time as your livestream. If there is too much network activity, your stream may suffer. Therefore, it is recommended to prioritize your livestream and limit other activities, such as downloads and uploads, during the stream.

By following these guidelines, you can optimize your livestream quality and deliver a seamless and enjoyable experience for your audience.
