Twitch Streaming through Virgin Media

ello livestreamers,

I have Virgin media and I was having issues streaming on Twitch. At one point my stream would be perfect the next I'm at 0Mbps, it blew my mind. When streaming on other platforms it would be fine so what was causing the problem?

I decided to use a VPN on my next stream. Throughout the entire stream through Twitch it didn't drop at all. I tried it again at another time and no issue. Keep in mind that every stream on Twitch would always crash.

So what is the problem you ask? Virgin Media you tell me.

Not sure if you are having a similar issues to me Kevin. Might be worth taking a look at my thread to see if you are having the same problem:

I've heard nothing back for over 7 weeks that even remotely indicates a solution is in the pipeline.

Really quite disgusted by the entire affair to be honest.

Speed has little to do with the issue, VM don't have extraordinary peering, how long pieces of youtube require to stack are a model, on the off chance that you fire up YouTube on a xDSL association it'll stack near on in a split second. Investigate changing your dns aswell, VM's dns is famously horse.

Additionally take a gander at buying a genuine switch (at the Nighthawk arrangement are all around suggested by individuals on the authority VM discussions - I have a substantially more intricate arrangement myself), essentially put the Hub3 (and I hear likewise the Hub4 are a pack of **bleep**e aswell) put the VM switch in modem just mode, attach your own switch and really appreciate the web once more,
