Okay FINALLY

Here is a video, 17 minutes of my first real successful test running with AUDIO

http://www.twitch.tv/rwhitegoose/b/334251842

A lot of playing around with stuff, volume, lights, camera angle, looking around because I'm not used to seeing myself on camera, etc.

I play some S1 SA and Silo A.  Go to the end, like 15:15 to see a Silo A 1:05 (as well as me burping.)

Give me feedback, what do you think, etc!!!!

Glad you got it working!

Just as a tip (and this applies to everyone who streams), you should right click > configure your game source in Xsplit and select deinterlace to improve the video quality a bit.

Ok thanks for that tip.  I'll definitely play a little bit more tonight and mess around with settings and stuff, always trying to make it better.

DK, if you wouldn't mind PMing me information to use the elite's stream?  I probably only need the KEY but anyone can change that at anytime so I guess pw and all is good.  I might go back and forth between channels for a little while.


***TO EVERYONE ELSE (CLEM, MARC, ILLU, ETC)***

Sometime soon we need to start racing on speedrunslive.  Apparently it's super simple and all you need is to enter an irc chatroom, someone gives commands to start a race, and that's that.  We would all stream on our own channels.  This would really help promote each of our individual stuff, as well as the community as a whole.

We could start simple with agent or secret agent races, then eventually move to 00 and 100%.  I really cannot fathom how insane 1 try 00 and 100% runs would be... it's so easy to die 4 minutes into a run on Control, Caverns, Aztec, that no one would ever really be out of the race.  

There are tons of race options.  Even small races like "get 2x throwing knives cheat from a fresh file" count as races, and the more races you do, the higher your score gets on SRL, the more exposure you get, the more people follow your channel, etc etc.  Then we can make races like "get invisibility cheat" so that would basically be a half 00A run.  Or we could even play BINGOS with cheats.  Where we generate a random bingo card with all the cheats and you have to decide which 4 in a row you will go for to complete.

With the right promotion we can make this super successful and eventually get revenue from ads on our channel and hot women sending us fanmail and all that good stuff.

There is NO ONE playing Goldeneye right now.  N64 is super popular, and Goldeneye was one of the most popular N64 games.  We can do this right and become FAMOUS.

So yeah, we need to get on that.


Seriously, the utter concept of Goose/Clem/Illu/Marc doing 4x4 get cheat bingos or 100% run races all streaming live should be making everyone in this community wet.  The talent pool here is so deep... if we got others in on this, Boss, Henning, Jimbo, Wouter, Lovins, Bauer, Acke, I don't even know who else... any race could literally be anyone's taking.

It will seriously be 100x better soon.  My older sister moved out in the summer and she had the room in the basement.  I'm working on making my setup in that room so that I can talk to interact with chat, as well as play music, dance around, maybe have my keyboard there, have deep conversations about life/women/society with chat, constantly eat snacks and drink beverages, look sexy (though I already do in that stream) generally be myself... Even simple stuff like having the TV volume louder so you can hear it better.  Right now this setup is in my bedroom, 1 wall separation from my parents room, so obv I have to be very toned down.

Once I get that setup going is when I will try to promote my stream to become very popular, and I think I can do it.  I will definitely be doing 100% runs and just streaming whenever I'm playing.  I really hope to have high hundreds of viewers, maybe thousands by the time I've had a great stream going for a few months.  This is my goal.

I've realized that gaming is a true passion of mine, and there is nothing wrong with following your passions; in fact that is the right thing to do in life.  And finally twitch.tv offers us a productive, respectable outlet for our gaming passions.

I'm in the middle of applying for jobs, school, etc, but hopefully soon enough this goal becomes reality.

http://www.twitch.tv/delline - I was streaming a few hours yesterday for fun. Broke a world record on MSUSA and choked a bit too many runs on S1 SA. My setup was capture card, with mic next to the TV and webcam pointed towards me sitting in a chair.

I have a better audio codec now for Xsplit, so there should be no sound problems in my future streams. I'm going to add a webcam to the stream as well. Gonna try and stream some agent speedrun attempts in 45 minutes or so http://da.twitch.tv/theelitegaming

Help (ATTN DK)

I made a highlight on my channel, from theelitegaming's channel.  Well I've done this a lot with my PRs and notable runs.  But I accidentally made a highlight that's an hour long and just a session of me playing Caverns.  I meant to make a 1:36 fail but the brackets got messed, whatever.

Anyways, I've deleted it from my highlights page like 50 times.  It will say "recording deleted" but when I check back, it's still there.  I've tried doing it from different browsers, clearing cookies, etc but nothing works.  It's just a huge annoyance more than anything.  But maybe since it's theelitegaming's video I'm highlighting I need to use that account to delete it?

I'm just at a complete loss and this is really tilting.

Yea I mean I've got no clue how to delete stuff from the elite stream so there's all kinds of unnessesary crap there by me :P I record everything myself with another program running when I stream anyway so if someone wants to delete my stuff then be free to do so.

But ofcouse if I can do this myself then I will do it but right now I have no idea how, from my own channel it's easy to eraze ofcouse.

I adjusted some settings that may help fix the problem in the future, but I don't see any way to delete the highlights that have already been made unless you go to the twitch support forums and ask an admin to delete it for you.

Your frame rate is bad and the sound has horrible lag and pauses, it's unwatchable without getting a headache. Maybe your uplink or computer is too weak? Resolution and color are perfect though.

No need to apologize, I'm just trying to give feedback for you to get it right :D Is there a way to reduce the resolution or bitrate of the video stream so that it runs more fluently maybe? Also it looks like you forgot the deinterlace stuff, but that's no big deal.

if you're having troubles with lag, best to turn off deinterlace if possible, or at least not until the stream works fluently. Also, try to turn down the resolution a bit. Most likely your internet (upload speed) is not fast enough, OR your computer is not fast enough to process/compress the video/audio for the stream to be consistent.

4 GB RAM, AMD E-450 APU with Radeon HD 1.65 GHz

Testing the bandwidth..

2nd try: 1083 kbps

How do I turn off deinterlace?
I can't find it anywhere.

If you are experiencing lag issues, first and foremost you should check and make sure you're using the closest server location (in Channel settings). Using the wrong server location is the most common cause of lag.

To toggle deinterlace you right click your game source > Configure > Force deinterlace (it should be off by default).

With 1000 upload, you can probably get away with 700-800 video bit rate (leaving some bandwidth for audio and other stuff). You should set your video buffer to about 1.5x whatever your video bitrate is (so 1200 buffer for 800 bit rate). That may help with lag issues.

Uh 1.29mbs upload is more than good enough (at VA we only had 0.60 max and still managed good quality). Use the settings I mentioned earlier for video bitrate and buffer and adjust it down slowly until you get a smooth stream. If you're only using half your bandwidth and you still get lots of lag then bitrate is not the problem.

Did a "100% run" on NTSC-NA knowing I would fail, but just trying to make it far to see if it would get viewers.

We peaked at 66 viewers and now have 100 followers!!  People loved GE speedrunning so yeah this can definitely be super popular if done right.  Full game runs seem to be the way to go.

I'm not sure if you are familiar with the difference between Mbit/s and Mb/s

these speedtests always meassure Mbit/s

Forcing deinterlace (right click game source > Configure) may help get rid of those horizontal lines. Otherwise it looks good.

And Cara, you're right. But the reality is that if your upload value from speedtest.net is anything over 1.0 then you should be able to stream with decent enough quality. We only had about 0.5 to work with at VA (and that was with 20 other boZos trying to connect at the same time) and still got surprisingly good quality.

Also, I just want to say that it's great to have people streaming every day now and our viewership is getting very good. I was thinking about doing a special PD stream this weekend to celebrate 100 followers  :)

I have a really anoying problem when i try and stream GE with webcam. When the webcam is on the screen too, GE lags just slightly, not a lot, but just enough that it is unwatchable. Here is an example: http://nl.twitch.tv/theelitegaming/b/335197630

I switched to the server in frankfurt, germany, since that one had lowest ping and is the closest to me as well, didn't make any difference, i tried to lower and higher the video bitrate, didn't make any difference. Thought my upload speed might be a bit bad, but i heard from ace and others as well that i have more than enough (1.61mb) Does anyone have an idea what the issue might be? Thanks  :)

the issue might be your computer? is it fast enough? adding another screen to your stream increases CPU load.

The problem is definitely in the speed of your computer.

Upgrade it. :P What are your current specs?

You can clean your computer, disable the explorer while streaming and try other techniques such as using Game Booster to optimise performance too, but doing any of that won't ameliorate the speed by much I think.

What Bke said, you can clean your computer. After awhile, your computer begins to get disorganized (depending on how well you maintain your computer) and you may presently have files that you do not need anymore. CCleaner is a great program to use for cleaning purposes. You can set which files you'd like to keep/delete. I good full clean can erase GBs of data!
You will also want to make sure all of your software/hardware is up to date. You can update your drivers in the control panel. You may also want to check for viruses with your anti-virus programs.
If all of this fails, you can try re-installing your OS. Make sure that you back up all of your files/user settings before though. Hope your computer gets faster!

EDIT: Also close all applications that are running while streaming (previously mentioned by Bke).

Gonna meet up with Marc tomorrow (tuesday) so we're gonna be streaming some multiplayer and stuff in the days.
