Encoder Overloaded when starting stream from MacBook Pro (retina, Mid 2012)


New Member
Hey all,

i am super new to streaming. I have a PS5 that i've connected an Elgato HD60 S+ to and it connects to my Macbook Pro (retina, Mid 2012)

Mac Specs:
Apple MacBook Pro 15-Inch "Core i7" 2.3 Retina 2012 Specs
a NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 1 GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory and an "integrated" Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphics processor that shares system memory, as well as an integrated 720p FaceTime HD webcam.

just some of the specs

I figured out how to start stream but I've noticed tha my encoder would get overloaded. Then when i check on my twitch it says stream is unstable. I have no idea what to do or how to fix it.

Is there any settings anyone would suggest?

From what I can remember (i am not at home)

I have my stream settings

3000 KBS for the bitrate
2 keyframes,
encoder x264
CPU: fast

Internet speeds: 500mb/500mb

Output resolution is 720.

thats all I can remember, Any help, suggestions, tips will be great!

thanks all! and happy streaming!
