OBS> Resolution setting and bitrate

The two most important data that determine streaming quality are resolution and transmission bitrate.

To change the resolution go to the «Video» section.

To change the bitrate, go to the «Output» section. Remember to enter the bitrate value in both the «simple output mode» section and the «advanced output mode» section.

To adapt the video preview to the screen, right-click on the preview, select «Transform» and then «Fit to screen».

We recommend that you check your available upload bandwidth, and set resolution and bitrate accordingly.


OBS> Transmission and Registration

Now you are ready to stream! Click on the «start broadcast» button to start your live stream. You can also record your event on your PC by clicking the «Start recording» button.

N.B. We recommend that you register your event locally in order to have a quality that is not affected by any internet bitrate fluctuation.
