So as you probably know by now I have a yt channel and I stream on it 3-5 times a week and I use obs on my laptop to record this gameplay.
Obs is quite simple to use and I’m going to go over what stream settings I use to get good quality video recordings as well as good quality streaming
First off you need to the maximum they can be then for you stream you want them to be 1 or 2 settings lower so that they will have a better fps and it will also guarantee good frames as opposed to no guarantee of amazing frames.
After that if you have a webcam you need to make sure that you activate/deactivate it on obs otherwise it will always be running or it wont be running at all which for obvious reasons is bad. Also make sure to light up the space/object that your webcam si recording other wise it will appear really dark
as you can see just the light from one lamp can make it a much clearer view for your audience and it is totally worth it as this ikea light i got is only about 15$ but it makes it look like I have professional setup with a ring light that costs like 100$.
Although if you have an rgb keyboard you will not need as direct light as it will look weird in the webcam if it is reflecting onto the already brightly lit keyboard so make sure to keep that in mind.
My final OBS tips/settings are as long as you have a decent PC make sure you have a bit rate above 4500 as any lower and it will be laggy and slow. also you don’t really want to do 60+ fps I personally go for 59.94 but over 6o I would only recommend for a decent PC. And also make sure that when you are streaming if you are using a hand cam you want to make sure vit is active it can become inactive occasionally so if you have more than 1 monitor make sure obs is running smoothly on 1 and that the game is running well on the other that way you will know if any malfunctions happen.
Thank you all for reading my blog post and Check out my YT channel I will be streaming there tonight at 7:00 pm PST and I might be unboxing my new steelseries apex 5 keyboard. link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrlNUqQVBxLIbdltHQBdcYg?view_as=subscriber
