TOP STREAMING TIPS! 🌎 This morning we tried streaming the Q&A at 6000 kbps for video and 256 kbps for audio for the first time, upgrading from 4000 kbps and 192 kbps on OBS. 📈
This seemed to work fine across LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube and Twitch ... however Twitter (via Periscope) looks like it couldn't handle it. 😱 The stream didn't even appear. 🥺
With playing with your settings it is important to find the limits of different platforms and find the balance of maximising your reach by hitting every platform, vs making small improvements which people might not even notice - like what we did today.
For next weeks interview I will drop the video kbps back to 4000 kbps, but keep the audio at its new level, to see if we can find a compromise. 😳
It appears Twitter may be stopping support for Periscope some time soon anyway, so this might change things, but always try new settings and find what works for you!!
