Hi,

Your Xsplit version is fairly old. What capture hardware are you using? Also, what is your bitrate set to?

Am2pmgaming,

As Jason said, your x-split version is very low, and is likely the cause of this problem. Upgrading it is almost necessary, as you will run into more problems than you are going to solve with an older version.

If that is not possible you can try these steps instead: Within x-split you can change the h.264 encoder to use less processing power by going to edit>channels>TwitchTV/JustinTV and then find where it says "Video Preset." It is likely set to "Default" or "Fast" or something similar. You should try changing that to the fastest setting possible (on mine "superfast").

Another alternative is to use streaming software other than x-split. Two of these are called FFSplit, and Open Broadcaster. If you want to do this with league of legends, I have written a guide for that specifically here:

Hope that helps, please let us know what you figure out, and fill us in with any updates.

You may not be able to upgrade your CPU any furethr. Not all 775 boards will support all models of 775 CPU. Some couldn't even take a Pentium D, some could take a Pentium D but not the Core line, some could take Core 2s but would only use older 65nm models, and some could take any 775 CPU. There's no way to tell as you didn't provide a model number on that Asus board.Regardless, you'd be best saving up for a better computer. But why an i7? The i5 2500k is $100 less and still trashes the competition. You'll see no difference between the latest i7 and the i5 2500k in games.Was this answer helpful?

Hi Jason M. I'm having this problem. I'm using ManyCam and Justin TV to stream my gameplays. Both Justin TV and Manycam video previews are perfectly synced, BUT when I view the ManyCam and Twitch video previews, the Twitch one has a 2-3 second delay. How can I tweak the Twitch video so that it will be in perfect sync with ManyCam?

Hi Mike,

Unfortunately, there will always be some lag when streaming to our site. We do far more quality checks than JTV, thus the experience is different.
