Twitch Streaming Issue. (not sure is it right place)

Hello

(Sorry for my English, not my native language)

I stream from time to time on Twitch, recently I've noticed a lot of frame drops.

Thought it's my hardware, or wrong settings in OBS.

But looks like it's network issue.

I did a test with Twitch bandwidth test v1.5

And every EU servers gives me 0 quality which cause issues.

This is how it looks: 

So I connected my phone to PC to use LTE and it's definitely a network issue:

Same issue when I stream to YT.

Speed looks "ok"

Anyone with similar issue?

Re: Twitch Streaming Issue. (not sure is it right place)

Is Virgin blocking twitch?

So in last two days I had issues again.

Is it just me or Virgin recently started to "block" twitch?

I know that they stopped to limit upload speed if u stream to much, but I'm not sure about that right now, I mean upload is ok, just streaming to twitch is impossible atm.

Hi Dominix,

 

I'm very sorry to hear this. We are not aware of any issues with this. 

 

Have you tried this on multiple devices?

Re: Twitch Streaming Issue. (not sure is it right place)

I stream only from one device.

Problem with this is that everything can be ok for few days, I can stream 8h+ long without any single issue until today, when suddenly I can't stream at all because of network issue.

So today I streamed for around 2h than it happen.

https://www.speedtest.net/result/8160937307

Upload speed goes down to even 3mb from 20!

Probably in few hours it will be ok again, but in recent days it happens a bit more often than in past 2-3 months.

There is something going on, even if https://my.virginmedia.com/faults/service-status says no issue in my area.

Re: Twitch Streaming Issue. (not sure is it right place)

So the problem is not with Twitch, problem is with Upload speed going down.

So I started my stream over 4h ago, everything was fine until now.

My bitrate is set to 6Mb/s (upload speed normally is ~20Mb/s, vivid 350) But suddenly my stream started to lag and than disconnect.

So I checked speed and here is result: https://www.speedtest.net/result/8164432494

I Don't care that much about DL speeds, I would like to see stable 20Mb/s upload all the time to avoid these problems.

And even worse: https://www.speedtest.net/result/8164442599

I am not majorly into all of this stuff but I would like to recommend maybe restarting your router since your line may be congested at times which then this will fix that by putting you on the best line.

Re: Twitch Streaming Issue. (not sure is it right place)

that test was done 5min later: https://www.speedtest.net/result/8164445744

no restart is needed because I tried that few times when for few hours I had problem like that, that was when I post this thread, day after, everything was fine.

But now from time to time, during the day, Upload just go down to under 6Mb/s or less, what during streaming causes a lot of dropped frames.

Re: Twitch Streaming Issue. (not sure is it right place)

Hello Dominix

Appreciate you taking the time to post on our forums 

Just a question at the moment from myself 

Have you tried a reboot on the hub like @Seanbe2003 has kindly advised 

If so would you be happy to run another speed test and post the results on here 

Hope to hear back from you soon
