This is the error I get...
Yep. I'm already hiring my own 6 cores server that allows me streaming with up to 1080p/3.5 mbit/30 fps if needed (using it for 720p/2400kbit/30fps atm). But I could buy your services instead if you weren't such an alpha. ;-)thanks for the idea.
we will discuss about it in the evening with our team

Chat is a cool idea! We hope we could implement it soon.This may seem a bit odd of a request, but since you already added a viewer count, could you also add an embedded chat system for all the streams on the same page? I'm not saying to mix all of the chats into one, just embedded, like the popout windows and such. Would just make things easier to have it all in one page.
Beyond that, while I haven't actually tried the service, it seems great. Perhaps you could monetize it (down the line anyway) by limiting streaming to say 480@30 or 720@30 for free, and charge $5 a month or something to allow higher resolutions and higher framerates. This kind of thing is common and expected by most I would think. It's a great service, and I would have set something like this up myself, but I'm not sure how RTMP systems work, and I don't have much as far as upload speed myself either (4mb/s).
Anyway, thanks for putting this up and such. :D (You could also probably add extra stats and such as an incentive to pay for it. Don't know, but there's probably a lot you could add to make it more easy for people to pay.)
Thank you!The service works fine when streaming to Twitch and Hitbox. Haven't seen any hiccups and VODs seem to work after streaming to both services, which I think was one of the issues with using nginx?
Used the following encoding settings below:
The only issue that I had with the site is that after you registered an account, you're given the default RTMP server, which is set to EU. For anyone reading, make sure you're streaming to the correct Restream server if you're dropping frames like crazy.
- 1280x720 (being downscaled from 1920x1080)
- 2372kbs Max Bitrate (no custom buffer)
- 128kbs AAC 48kHz
- 60 FPS
I've found http://streamchats.diraven.com on the forum as an alternative for chat if you're streaming to multiple services like Twitch and Hitbox.
Сonnection time should not exceed 20 seconds.I can't seem to get it to connect to Twitch servers. Just says "connecting". I tried all the east coast servers for Twitch. How long should it take to connect? I waited a couple minutes for each attempt.
Hitbox seems to work fine though.
EDIT: It's working now, must have just hiccup'd.
We will fix streaming statusYeah i noticed that yesterday as well when streaming. It would stay as "Connecting..." but would never update to "Online". Even though the corresponding streams were working great on their relevant websites. So far i haven't seen any issues using this Service and hope to see some great new features in the future!
