dcole13: Just for reference, on ADSL 15/1 I can stream at 600Kbps 720p 30fps without dropping any frames while playing FIFA 15, although FIFA has lag spikes at times. It doesn't look TOO bad.


600kbit? try alot of movement, would look horrid!


I could say that my 15mbps is fast but you will say that it sucks and is "dial up speed"

  • ​Recommended bitrate for 1080p: 3000-3500

  • Recommended bitrate for 720p: 1800-2500

  • Recommended bitrate for 480p: 900-1200

  • Recommended bitrate for 360p: 600-800 (if you stream in 360p your stream will look awful)

  • Recommended bitrate for 240p: Up to 500 (please do not ever use 240p if you want more than 1 viewer)




The above are pretty much exactly what the quality presets on twitch are:

Source
High
Medium
Low
Mobile

Anything below medium is utter garbage. Red Bull sets the standard with their 1080p/60 source streaming, which I struggle to stream on a 30/10 VDSL connection. Maybe when I get fibre.


You must need a really beefy pc to stream 1080p 60p

(i wont bother tagging this cause its huge) Normally I stream at 720 60 fps 3500 on my VDSL connection but this was before I moved house ;)

As for future reference I did stream at ADSL2 speeds with 450 bit rate CBR at 30 fps 480p and it looked okay but it's the best you're gonna get out of it.





You can also follow me on twitter here @kiwifortw I do twitch streams every now and then at twitch.tv/kiwiforthewin :)
