On behalf of all the people who have problems with streaming, (Whenever its the Ingame problem or Stream problem) I have decided to make this ultimate guide covering as much as i can.
I will be covering stuff in sections that will be easier for you to find the info you need.
This is a video guide , actually my 1st one and please do not mind my english accent and everything else including. I have learned my english through playing WoW and i am not sure how good it is.
But first of all , my story ...
One full month i have been working on setting the Xsplit to not make my game choppy and laggy. I spent 6-7 hours per day with no results at all.
Every single setting i have tested out didnt worked for me. That was until i found out the problem. Xsplit is in beta version and i am quite aware of the fact its not working the same on every single PC configuration. I posted in Xsplit forums 1 month ago and i had 0 reply from their staff (gj keeping your community Xsplit) and as well i have read thousands of guides that didnt helped me at all. For a moment i thought that my PC is actually crap and cant stream even 480p. But that wasnt the case.
As i am quite sure there are many people having problem with Xsplit , making their game unplayable and choppy while they having some extremely good CPUs and Upload speed to handle even 1080p resolution without a problem.It is frustrating , isnt it ?
Well the whole problem lies in the Screen Source.Some PC configurations dont have any problems with it but as i saw many others do. Even guys with i7 2500k processors having that problem is ridicules.
Whenever i was adding a screen region and setting my Xsplit FPS above 15 i had unberable choppy / laggy game performance which i was very much frustrated. Anything below 15 FPS for me was making my game very smooth , but who would like to watch 15 fps stream for more than 10 minutes ?
Well if you are one of those people who have this particular problem than you are on the right place to solve it out.
1. Solving your Issue.
Nothing that you will try to do in Xsplit will solve the current issue you have. Only way to fix it is using another program for screen output such as Dxtory.
I have tried VHScreen capture but it gave me the same results just like using Xsplit by itself so i throw it away.
Dxtory is paid program but you can get it for a free trial version and you can check it out.
I can guarantee you that if you have this problem that i had , you wont have it anymore with this program.
2. Setting Dxtory.
Dxtory is a program that has a lot of options to set and it is allowing you to use it as an output to another program and/or local record your game.
Take in mind that Dxtory will not screen capture your Desktop but only your games.
I will later on cover how you can stream with Dxtory+Xsplit and still get the Desktop while streaming.
Here is a video explanation of what you need to do so you can set it up.
3.Getting Dxtory working on Xsplit
4. Setting Xsplit regarding your PC configuration and Upload speed.
5. Capturing your Desktop while using Dxtory and adding webcam in the screen.
My PC configuration :
i5 760 lyn 3.6 OC
4gb mushkin 1600
HD5770 1024 ddr5
My upload speed :
Tested to Twitch tv server
Tested to my provider server
Pretty bad Upload right ? A lot of people will say that i wont stream at all with this upload speed. Well i can and as well check the stream quality of my stream and wonder how it is possible.
Finally the end :
Thank you for reading my guide and i hope it helped many people.
