Oh, I thought I missed it, but, time zones are a thing, apparently.

About 45 min from now and my twitch starts. Pretty sure it will be saved and viewable for at least a month

The good: Streaming is easier than I thought. I can talk about nothing for 4 hours and hopefull be entertaining.

The bad: I can talk about nothing for 4 hours *questions sanity*

The ugly: 4 hours ugggghhh. I think my next stream will be a more comfy 2 hours

Next week's schedule (won't be on my Twitch schedule until next Monday):
2020-11-07_13-36-17.jpg
2020-11-07_13-36-17.jpg (31.79 KiB) Viewed 8841 times

My first 'Gotcha': Maeve mentioned the so-so streaming quality, so my next few streams will be 570p instead of 720p. The 'gotcha' is the my ATI card is horrible at streaming and a last-gen i5 CPU isn't great at x264 encoding

... what?

In 2 weeks i'll install a Nvidia 1660 Ti video card which has MOAR POWAR and better firmware/software for streaming.

I just assumed it was my internet connection!

It would buffer for a while, and then burst out bits of the game, but then it would jump around, cut back to scenes that already played, and then buffer again.

mmmmmmmmaybe it's you but it probably isn't? My interwebs is good but my CPU and video card are definite bottlenecks. I'm not going to build a new PC anytime soon so the simplest fix is installing a last-years-model video card. My current PC is a small quiet ITX cube on my desk and I'm trying to keep it small and quiet.

A long time ago when I was into neon lights and overclocking I bought a best-of-the-best video card and it was so noisy it ruined any gameplay immersion. Plus the thing blasted too much hot air into the room. The only thing that's supposed to blast hot air in my home office is ME.
