    Do it! It definitely has added a little extra fun and interaction with friends, especially those who can't play but can hop into the stream and judge :hehe:

    I followed you specifically to see some crazy cooling action so hopefully you decide to pick it up again soon!

    Thanks, and thanks :naughty:

    Will you be streaming at all? If so I shall drop by!

    I have seen the same thing with a lot of people who I used to watch on YouTube, the effort involved in a 30 minute video is more than a 6+ hour stream, and for most people less profitable too. I think unless your YouTube videos have a lot of replay value or are still relevant months/years later then streaming is a better use of time. Plus the live interaction probably makes it feel less isolated and lonely if it were your job!

    Used to share the odd video on YouTube and broadcast some of my programming & sketching activities to Twitch a few years ago, haven't really done much lately.
    I've thought about going back to doing some recordings on the weekends but haven't got around to putting anything together.

    I would but I lack the correct amount of charisma to be interesting to the type of people that would watch.

    If you want to you should, don't worry about whether people are watching or not. Trying to get into streaming purely to get loads of viewers etc won't work for 99.9% of people (basically the rock star dream of this generation)

    So I have determined that StreamLabs OBS sucks in comparison to bog standard OBS. At least in terms of performance... StreamLabs couldn't keep up with a 1080p60 stream downscaled to 720p60, but vanilla OBS had no problem at all. It was the same even when using the QuickSync encoder in StreamLabs OBS.

    Now if I just get a half-decent audio interface for my mic (because the pre-amp on the integrated audio sucks and I don't want to go back to using a clunky mixing desk)... Of course I can't stream anything other than simple indie or 2D titles using the HD4600 iGPU in my 4670S :grin:.

    Can't see anything. On another note, I've just found out we have a steam group?

    Is it a Beta feature maybe? Idk seems very strange! Bit-tech and CPC groups, both full of CS refugees.

    I've joined my own broadcast and somehow that's made it go live?

    Unless it's due to me not having you added? When I go on your profile it just looks like a normal profile and has no sign of a stream. Very odd.

    I have selected public viewing, having said that, still could be a case of friends only. It's also very tempermental with performance settings, keeps changing them.
