I can't livestream

joeisbored Aug 10, 2013 08:28PM PDT

I use OBS to livestream and I've been doing that since December I've never hard a problem livestreaming to twitch always worked until now I get this error both from Xsplit and OBS saying that "Could not access the specified channel or stream key. This could be because the key/ channel is invalid, or because the server still thinks you are logged in

rtmp://live-iad-backup.justin.tv/app:
NetStream.Publish.Rejected (Authentication Failed.)"

That is from OBS, Xsplit gives me something similar what should I do because I really want to livestream!!!

We're aware of this, and should resolve itself after a short period. Thanks!
