Video Streaming Requirements

In this manual page we will highlight the recommended settings for live video streaming according to:

Note: Please remember, there is no “best setting” that we can recommend, as this is highly content and situational dependent.

 

 

Recommended bandwidth

To broadcast through TikiLIVE we recommend using a wired connection with an upload bandwidth of at least 700Kbps. Your upload bandwidth must be greater than your stream’s total bit-rate. It is recommended that your upload speed be at least 50% greater than the bit-rate of your broadcast.

Many times what appears to be a great connection is somewhat less in the real world. If you see connection drops, reduce the published bit-rate to a lower value.
