If you find that your stream is lagging or choppy, go through and test the following points:
- Check your connection speed at speedtest.net – UPLOAD has to be set with a reserve that is larger than your set bitrate. Latency should be a minimum of 100ms.
- DPI: Deep Packet Inspection causes random network latency to your firewall, which the RTMP does not like.
- Camera load – an overloaded camera will leave out frames. Reduce the camera load by:
a) Checking/reducing the number of outgoing streams from the camera
b) Turning off the other ACAP applications on the camera
c) Reducing the audio sample rate
- Use the default “Video Quality”. Selecting “custom” can lead to video sent to YouTube with the wrong parameters. See here.
