Stream Mini-tutorial (Open Broadcaster Software and Twitch.tv)



Note: The video is pretty viewable on 480p without fullscreen. 720p is available and recommended, however. Recorded with Camtasia Studio 8.

This video brushes on my setup for streaming and how to use and get a stream running. I am not going in-depth with anything here really, but if you are more of an intermediate PC user or knowledgeable gamer than this tutorial will save you time from having to go through the newbie BS that many people put up.

    You must be using game capture or selecting LoL's exe specifically. Select your monitor as the scene.

    I have a problem with my stream; I've been trying to stream League of Legends for a while now, put it just wont work. I try to use screen capture, but it doesnt capture my LoL launcher/client. Then I tried the "Game Capture", but that just left me with a black screen and my LoL cursor. I really want this to work out, someone, please. Help me! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well, there is only one device you can (or at least is practical) use, and thats your computer. If you want to record and stream, use OBS's built in function to output a file and stream. If you want to just record, use FRAPS or MSI Afterburner. You can try Afterburner with OBS, but FRAPS is no go with OBS.

    Does it hold 40/40, what quality should I stream on then?

    Reply
  • odahilys 4 years ago

    Your RAM may be overloaded. Close background programs, turn off Windows 7 Aero, and try lowering your settings. Also, don't use FRAPS when using OBS.

    When editing the scene, you should be able to simply drag the box. It should show a red outline if you are in the correct zone.
    If your up mbps is 2, your bit rate is 2000. Take away 30-40% (if your card OR net [if both suck, dont stream] sucks, might want to take away 30%).
    So end up with 1400.

    Parameters? In the sense of commands, none. In the sense of setting up OBS, everything in this tutorial is worthy to look at for streaming on Twitch when playing LoL.

    Rescale the scene like i showed in the tutorial.

  • odahilys 4 years ago

    480p? Downscale your game window to 640×480 and your stream size in OBS.

  • odahilys 4 years ago

    13.6 mbps? Thats excellent, stream at the highest quality and direct all weight to your bandwidth instead of your card.

    Make sure FRAPS is not running in the background. Make sure you're following ALL of the steps, and try turning off Windows 7 Aero. If windows 8, i believe you're SOL at the minute, thats a known problem.

    if your upload is an average 2mbps, you may be able to stream but just at a lower quality.

    I just want it to capture whatever is on my screen, without the mouse flickering. Is that so much to ask?
