      We have moved to Discord   08/04/2016

      There has been a strong desire among the community to migrate to Discord for quite some time. As of today, our community will be using Discord and as a result, we will no longer be actively using our TeamSpeak Server.  The TeamSpeak server will temporarily stay active to help inform all of our move to Discord. Within the next couple of months, it will be shut down completely.  For a quick invite to our new Discord server, you can click here.

      Supersonic Series Stacks Up to Support the Troops   11/07/2016

      vVv Gaming Joins Forces With Stack-Up To Support The Troops     We believe that all gamers, regardless of skill, have a place in competitive gaming. We also believe that great things can come from competitive gaming and the communities that support it. As such, starting today, we are joining forces with Stack-Up in their missions and dedicating the Supersonic Series to the troops. Our goal is to help Stack-Up raise money to fund their missions. Each dollar that is donated goes directly to Stack-Up to support their cause. We invite you to join us in our mission by watching our stream, playing in our tournaments, and donating towards a greater cause: supporting the troops through gaming.  
      Stack-Up's Mission   "Founded in 2015, Stack-Up (TAX ID: 47-5424265) brings both veterans and civilian supporters together through a shared love of video gaming. With the motto: 'Veterans are our Mission. Gaming is our Passion', Stack-Up serves US, NATO and ANZAC veterans through three primary programs: The Stacks, Stack-Up Supply Crates, and Air Assaults." With one of their programs, Stack-Up assembles "Supply Crates" filled with video games and nerdy goodies which are sent out to veterans in combat zones, on humanitarian missions, in recovery hospitals, and sometimes even bases located stateside.  They strive to help improve experiences of service members while they are deployed; instead of focusing on how many days of deployment they have left, Stack-Up encourages them to be participating in video game activities with their battle buddies.  It isn't just about having fun either!  Scientific studies have shown that video gaming can help veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, stress, and even pain relief!

      You can watch vVv Gaming events live on our Twitch channel.

Setting up a stream using Xsplit

17 posts in this topic

The above link is the homepage where you will need to create an account in order to download xsplit and use xsplit. Once that is done, you need to install the program.

After you have it installed, run Xsplit and watch this video to learn how to set up Xsplit to broadcast to the streaming site of your choice. It will guide you through almost every basic step to set up Xsplit.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I HIGHLY suggest raising your audio encoding to 22khz 16 bit stereo so that the sound on your stream does not sound like utter shit.(in the video below it is at 5:55 where the tab will appear to adjust the setting, the video tells u not to change anything but I recommend changing the sound)

broadcaster/learnthebasics.php

In order to solve ANY of these issues, you should have someone that is willing to watch your stream while you are in-game(watching replay is the fastest most optimal way to test)

Some common issues that people have messaged me about when they are streaming or viewers have noticed:

-FPS Issues

Solution 1: This can be caused by multiple reasons, many of which will most likely trace back to your internet upload speed. In order to optimize this depending on your internet speed, u want to go to "tools" and then select "channels" in this tab, u want to select the channel u have it linked to and then hit "edit."

Inside here you want to change the max bitrate (most likely lowering it) so that your stream will not be choppy anymore. I suggest trying 650 bitrate at first and seeing if that solves your problem. If it does not, you will have to mess with that number until it is fine.

Solution 2: You need to adjust the Stream FPS(lower it by like 2-5) and / or adjust the resolution(this is most likely the cause) It is difficult to find out which one is the actual problem, but I suggest lowering FPS by 2-5 first and then messing with the resolution. You will have to just play with the resolutions and FPS over and over in order to find optimal settings.

-viewing experience sucks(viewers compalin it is choppy, laggy, unwatchable)

Solution 1: In almost every scenario this will relate back to the issue regarding "FPS Issues" If it is only an isolated situation(one viewer has a problem) it is most likely his crappy internet.

-sound issues

Solution 1: If the stream is saying your sound quality is low, it is most likely because you have ignored my "HIGHLY RECOMMENDED" Sound setting change at the top right before the video.

Solution 2: If the stream is saying they hear your sound repeating over the stream, it is most likely because you have the microphone turned on in the control panel under "playback" then "speakers / headphones" and then in the tab "levels". You will want to mute the microphone playback.

Another possible reason could be because you are using speakers and you need to lower the speaker settings or stop being a noob and buy headphones while you stream!

-unplayable while streaming

Solution 1: In order to solve this problem, in almost every case it will come down to your computer needs upgrading(or it cannot handle streaming) or your internet cannot support you streaming and playing SC2 at the same. If it comes down to this problem, you will need to find someone that has half decent knowledge about computer / internet hardware to tell you what the problem will be.

I suggest contacting someone in the vVv channel or whoever is on vent and ask them if they know enough about computers to help you because every case will vary from person to person with this problem due to almost no computer having the same specs.

If none of the above has helped you, or you just need more help...Contact vVvNGry.551 on vent, in-game, through a PM, or just reply to this thread. Obviously the quickest way to solve this problem is to contact me on vent so that is the preferred method.

What did you do to fix it?

Imo, there can be 2 case why your sound is repeating

1. is when you watch your own stream while streaming from the same computer.

2. is when you have your speaker on, and got caught by your own microphone which will end up being streamed by xsplit.

and my case is because I had stream on while streaming. so I just mute my own stream or close it and it solved it.

if you have the second case, you should mute your speaker or turn off the mic. or I think using earphone will work as well.

hope this help.

Ok, well i had the mic turned off and sound coming from the speakers, since i usually listen to music while i play. And i did have my own stream up while i was playing cause i just wanted to make sure everything was ok like vid and audio. So maybe its just me hearing the sound repeating thing. Id have to get someone to help me test it to see if they can hear it or not. Thxs for the tips.

I'm having an audio problem on my stream, I'm using headphones (mic built in, a headset) and on the stream the only thing you can hear is my microphone... I don't know how to fix this, I've tried messing with the sound settings on windows but still no dice.

Do not use the above edit that hasuu posted.

In Xsplit's most recent update, they have added above change to their encoder.
