[Solved]Live Streaming Upgrade?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm currently using Time Warner Cable/Road Runner with 15down/_up and recently wanted to start live streaming some game matches (LoL using XSplit).

Now no one likes to watch crummy quality videos (unless I'm wrong...) so I'm thinking of setting the resolution at 720p/30fps (+some other settings concerning bitrate/etc which I don't remember).

As you can guess this completely destroys my internet, making the game I wanted to stream unplayable. I've been thinking of switching to Verizon Fios' 25down/25up service and just wanted to ask if that will be enough for live streaming. (Currently using a Linksys WRT54G2 v1, will I need a new router?)

If you need more information please just ask as I'm not super educated in this field. Thanks for your help.

I think your bottleneck will be your computer, not the internet connection itself.
Hopefully you have a Gigabit NIC card and the router is capable of Gigabit speeds.

How can you say the WAN isn't the bottleneck and then suggest gigabit LAN hardware

If you actually needed gigabit networking equipment your WAN requirement would be over 100 mbit..

How much up do you have currently? Keep in mind the bitrate of the video directly correlates to the bandwidth figure in your package. Something like 25/25 mbit should be able to stream video to 2-3 users at once.

If he's streaming into a service then he only needs to be able to stream to 1, which would be the streaming video service. Then the service would be the one who has to handle all the other users viewing the stream.

To the OP, yes Fiios will be able to handle that easily but make sure you are using gigabit ethernet or dual 100mb connections. A 802.11 n 5ghz full 300-450mb/s wireless network would do the trick too but if you use 2.4ghz, the max you can get is 130mb/s if any other pc's connect to that same network w/ wireless G or less.

WAN isn't the bottle neck, as stated above. If you sent it to UStream you're sending it to one place, not sending it to multiple users. That's what these streaming video services are for. Not to mention gigabit would be best over say G wireless. Just making things known.

I'm well aware of the capabilities video distribution services, my apologies that I did not recognize Xsplit directly.

The main question is how you can honestly suggest hardware that is orders of magnitude faster than the requirement and completely irrelevant to the implementation.

Why exactly do you need more than 25 mbit LAN bandwidth to this box if your WAN is only 25 mbit for the purpose of streaming to the internet?

Have you ever tried streaming a game in HD on a single Cat 5 100mb connection? It sucks balls. I don't know why and I don't really care tbh, but it does.

Obvious PEBKAC is obvious.

This is what I have right now.

This is the stream settings. Would that mean I have to decrease the "max bitrate"? So once I change my ISP to Fios for 25d/25u should I increase it once again?

My motherboard currently has two LAN ports: "Dual 10/100/1000Mbps". I may consider this option.

Sorry I'm not sure what you are trying to explain here :x Could you explain it in more simple terms?

Also sorry, I should have mentioned that it was for a single streaming video service. Thanks again for all the help everyone.
