Want to start Live Broadcasting

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello, I have been watching live gaming streams for a really long time and would like to start. I knwo the basic and have downloaded the client and all that, but what I want/need to know is what upload speed does my internet need to have in order to do this. is 1 MBPS upload enough, or do I need to upgrade to a better faster internet service that has 5 MBPS upload. While I know bigger is better, is 1 MBPS too slow for streaming live or would I need 5 MBPS to stream at least semi-good quality or is 5 MBPS not even enouhg. Ive heard of long time streamers having 25 MBPS Download/Upload. 25 MBPS is not available in my area so what should I do.

tldr; is 5 MBPS upload speed enough to live broadcast gaming or is that too low and not even bother. Need to know soon whether its worth it to upgrade internet or not.

Did you mean 5Mbs or 5MBs?

Either way its plenty enough if that's your upstream

Ya upload is the tricky part. You'll want at least 5 up. Hopefully you can find that in your area. It can be quite tricky to find in some more rural areas outside of main metro areas.

I did color commentary for CoD back in the day. They always invited me in because I had cal-i/cpl experience, and I could speak more on tactics and whatnot.

You said you downloaded a client... which did you download? When I did it I just logged in to the company's Ventrilo and worked from that.

I downloaded the jtv/twitch streaming program. BTW, I am wanting to stream live video at around 920p if at all possible.

Gotcha. Ya I just worked for a streaming network, joined a server and their (I think they were TSN, it's been 6 years) Ventrilo and talked about the match with the TSN guy doing play-by-play. Cool experience. You'll have fun!
