Hello there Twitch.tv Community! I am currently looking into streaming here on Twitch. I will mainly be streaming games on the Xbox 360 and some PC games here and there. From my research it looks like the BMD Intensity Pro, the Avermedia Game Broadcaster HD, and the Hauppauge HD PVR 2 are the cream of the crop. I use HDMI to connect my Xbox 360 to my monitor and I would like to keep it that way. I know that aside from the volatile nature of internet connectivity, most of the basics can be summed up into 'PC Specs' and 'Bandwidth'. Here's a list of my setup.
-Processor (AMD FX-8120 CPU (8x 3.10GHz/8MB L2 Cache))
-Processor Cooling (Liquid CPU Cooling System [AMD])
-Memory (8 GB [2 GB X4] DDR3-1600 Memory Module)
-Video Card (AMD Radeon HD 6870 - 1GB - Single Card)
-Motherboard (ASUS M5A97 -- AMD 970))
-Motherboard USB / SATA Interface (U3S6 USB 3.0 & SATA 3.0 PCI-E 2.0 x4 Expansion Card)
-Power Supply (900 Watt - Standard)
-Primary Hard Drive (2 TB HARD DRIVE -- 64M Cache, 7200rpm, 6.0Gb/s - Single Drive)
-Optical Drive (24X Dual Format/Double Layer DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW Drive - [Lightscribe Technology] Black)
-Flash Media Reader / Writer (12-In-1 Internal Flash Media Card Reader/Writer - Black)
-Sound Card (3D Premium Surround Sound Onboard)
-Network Card (Onboard LAN Network (Gb))
-Operating System (Microsoft Windows 7 Professional - 64-bit)
And my connection is:
-68.68 mbps download
-5.87 mbps upload
-Ping 22 ms
(I understand the connection fluctuates)
Currently, that is the fastest connection I can get in my area without having a business account, which I hope to change in the near future. :)
I have some experience with Xsplit but I will be using multiple cameras and I haven't heard to much about WireCast or any other similar programs. What streaming software(s) would be good for multiple media sources?
Any advice and/or non-biased opinions you guys can post to help me with this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
