Hey folks, i need help figuring out how to fix my streaming. I tried streaming dota 2 but in game i am getting some spikes. I recently just built this computer for streaming purposes and it sucks i cannot even stream properly. Anyhow here are my settings
i5 2500k (not overclock)
windows 7 64 bit ultimate.
I'll admit, I didn't watch all of either stream you have on Justin.tv, but just skimming through it, it looked fine to me. In any case, I would absolutely NOT expect a system like that to struggle with streaming. It SHOULD be more than enough. The RAM is the only thing I can think of. An extra 4GB couldn't hurt.
Other than that, just try a small OC to see what that does for you and make sure that you use the High Performance power plan in Widows to stay at full speed constantly to see if that makes a difference.
If an OC and 4GB more RAM don't help, I'm not sure what else to tell you.
Thats got to be The ultimate Fios pkg. 50 down 35 up iirc.
Streaming on the same pc your gaming on is difficult to get right. I would definitely upgrade to 16gb ram and give yourself some breathing room. DOTA2 wants 4gb to run on max settings leaves you with nothing for the system and xsplit so its going to revert to virtual memory and use your harddrive. I'd bet thats where your lag coes in, HDD thrashing as its trying to read and write at the same time.
