How To Use OBS Studio To Live Stream

The speed test comes in so so you want to stream at 1080p well it’s going to tell you that your resolution needs to be set to 1920 by 1080 and that your bitrate range needs to be set to 3000 to 6000 kilobits per second so that’s where the speed test comes in see I have nine hundred twenty six thousand kilobits per second so I can definitely stream @ 1080p so let’s say you have a speed of 1500 kilobits per second upload so that is probably 1.5 megabits per second upload so it’s going to tell you what it would recommend for that so if you have 1500 it says to go 720p

And set your bitrate anywhere from 1500 to 4,000 kilobits per second now this is all upload no downloads so just focus on your uploads for this part so I just match the quality with the bitrate you have so I usually go 1080p 60 frames per second because my internet is great so I go 4500 to 9000 kilobits per second I usually go 5000 it’s really good bitrate all around but just mess around with it and see what works best for you so just find which quality would be in your little equilibrium I guess and another thing I have to say about the bitrate stuff so say you have an upload of 1.5 make 1.5 megabits per second or 1500 kilobits per second so you don’t want to use up all of your internet on

The stream because if you’re playing like an online game or something that’s actually going to use band look too so you might start lagging so let’s say you have a 1500 like upload speed so you want to go 480p and go with a bitrate of like a thousand just so you can you know not lag in online gaming so really I’d recommend anything from a 2500 bitrate up anything below that is pretty bad for your overall speed so anyways let’s go into OBS and start configuring some stuff so once you’ve found what you want you go into video this is where you set the resolution so if I’m going to scream at 1080p 60fps for example my resolution would be set to 1920 x 1080 um so
