Optimizing Internet TV Publisher settings
Publish - choose preferred type (Audio + Video / Audio only / Video Only)
Audio quality - set stream audio quality (HQ / LQ - high or low quality)
Camera resolution - set of resolutions in 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratio.
Video frame rate - amount of images displayed per second
Video quality - set stream video quality (use plus and minus icons)
Live quality preview - if enabled, allows you to preview the stream quality changes, before start of streaming.
To get most out of the Internet TV Publisher you should analyze streaming conditions before start of the stream. Particularly two main factors:
1) available internet bandwidth
2) streaming environment dynamics
If bandwidth is low, lowering the video quality improves streaming fluency greatly. If environment is more static, you can lower the video frame rate to keep higher video quality. You can try experimenting with settings to achieve required streaming quality.
Important note: Please note that changing the resolution or audio quality during the broadcasting can destroy the video. Unfortunatelly, we don't support this kind of changes on the fly.
