Ok hellbender... your stream is just too crisp. Do you pay for an account or just use the free version? There has to be some reason why yours is soooo crisp lol.
TwitchTV is free, they even pay you if you bring in thousands of viewers and show them ads. Not about to happen anytime soon, no worries.
They do slightly restrict bandwidth for small-time users like myself in favour of the streams that draw in cash (although they deny doing this), which means I'm streaming video at 1500kbps instead of 2000kbps (which is ideal for 720p). Audio is 128kbps mp3.
I did buy Dxtory
, a program that works a lot like FRAPS but with tons of added functionality (everyone should own this) and a 12-month personal license for Xsplit
. There's no other easy way to stream in HD, really.
