OK... So I just had my first go at live streaming. As you may know you cannot live stream on mobile until you get to 1000 subs so I had to do it on my home computer and webcam.

It started off OK, but as time went on the image got more and more poor resolution. It's probably my rubbish internet connection, but wondered if I was doing something wrong?!?

Any hints or tips from the pro's? You can see the video on my channel - I'm going to take it off in an hour or so - but you'll see what I mean. It gets a bit glitchy - and my one viewer!!! pointed out they could hardly see me lol. Oh my days how much of a noob am I?

Thanks,

Graeme

Were you using YouTube's native livestream or were you using a livestream software like OBS?

YouTube's Native - just clicked on add video and then live. Is that not the best way to do it?

I've never used the native livestream before so I wouldn't know, but everybody I know who livestream uses OBS. With the right settings, you can get a smoother stream out.
