    Hey guys, I'm not sure if i will for certain do this, but it might be the kind of thing i would do over the christmas holidays; i was thinking of doing some streaming/ community games :-D

    I've got a computer which can handle it, my internet speed is this:

    http://prntscr.com/d974m4

    On a good day I'll get around 75 down and 7 up. Do you think my upload would be sufficient for streaming?

    The first hurdle i would like to overcome, is OBS. Even after watching YT tutorials, the videos created are always blurry, and if i am gonna do a stream, I'm gonna wanna do it properly! So if anyone can recommend a YT vid that worked for them, or list some settings i may wanna change in the description, then i would appreciate it.

    The next thing I would want to sort out is music. I know a good source of where to get non copyrighted music (NCS), but i don't know how to make it so it says on the stream what song people are listening to..... Does anyone know how Mac does this? Or can anyone recommend a YT video?

    http://prntscr.com/d977td

    The next thing i would like to ask about is templates (the overlays on the stream that say social media etc). Can anyone recommend a YT video or explain in comments how to do this/what software i would need?

    http://prntscr.com/d9784f

    The only other thing i have to sort out, is my email and Pword for my original twitch. Currently I'm using ThatGrimCreeper_uk because i can't get my old one to work, but that's something that i personally will have to sort out :-D

    If anyone could help me with this, then i know it would be the community! I'll be appreciative of whatever replies i get :-D

    Thanks, James Lawrence

    at the moment, for recording videos, my setting on OBS are:
    encoding
    x264 active
    CBR not active
    quality balance: 8
    max bitrate: 2500
    codec: AAC
    format: 48kHz
    bitrate: 128

    video:
    24 fps

    advanced:
    x264 CPU preset: superfast

    anything else should be preset

    Would you mind telling on what platform you're gonna stream?

    Think he means twitch, youtube, ect for streaming platform. Minecraft is just the game you'll be playing.

    set your settings to 30 fps because youtube only uses 30 fps so 60 fps will lag your game, and some noncopyrighted music is here

    lastly if you want, you and i could stream im thinking of doing it when uhc comes out
    (youtube gaming or twitch?)
