Question about Streaming


#1

Not sure where to post this, but just a basic question!

I started streaming I got 120 MBPS upload and was wondering if it is normal for my stream to be 20 seconds behind? example, if I shoot something, that action won’t take place on the stream til 20 seconds later. Is there a way to improve this to be a shorter delay?


#2

Yes.

Nope

Speeds irrelevant here, the problem is the math involved to transcode the video


#3

Doesn’t the low latency option on https://www.twitch.tv/dashboard/settings improve the delay in most cases?

Normal latency: Best for highest video quality, highest resolution, and to reduce video buffering
Low latency: Best for near real-time interactions with viewers


#4

Yes and no. And since the user gave up and posted here, they will have already explored the options available on the dashboard.

Either way not really a question for this forum.

Not is this a insights related issue/query.

For more help try the Twitch reddit for advice on OBS/XSplit settings. Which can have a difference but if you are watching your own stream then you’ll get poor results if you are timing.
