XSplit Broadcaster

Currently, streaming using XSplit via RTMP is beta and models may experience occasional connection instability. We are working to resolve the final issues and add more servers before officially launching support for External RTMP Broadcasters in the coming weeks.

Note: The free version of XSplit Broadcaster is limited to 1280 x 720 @ 30 fps and mono channel audio (96 kbps).

Requirements

Minimum Recommended
Processor Intel i5 or AMD 6-core Intel i7 or AMD 8-core
Internet 4+ Mbps upload bandwidth 6+ Mbps upload bandwidth
Memory 8 GB RAM 8+ GB RAM
OS Windows 7 SP1 (64 bit) Windows 10 (64 bit)
Graphics DirectX 10.1 GPU DirectX 10.1+ GPU

A hard-wired Ethernet connection is strongly recommended (rather than WiFi)

Windows 10 users: If you have received the Windows 10 1809 update, make sure that Game Mode is disabled (PC Settings / Gaming). If Game Mode is enabled, Windows reduces GPU priority for OBS, which can cause frame lag in your stream.
