Default Going To Try a Livestream Using Orbiter

I'm going to try to do a livestream on Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 2:00 PM Eastern time in the Orbiter simulator. I'll be streaming from this channel.

I would recommend Twitch instead. It's always worked better for me and my friends who used to stream Orbiter regularly for our joint/separate missions, and doesn't come with annoying advertisements. Orbiter is considered a game, so Twitch won't flag you for it.

We also use Open Broadcast Software which is pretty easy to setup with your Twitch account: https://obsproject.com/

From my experience, this is the easiest way to stream Orbiter. I'm not saying livestream is a bad choice, but I thought I'd offer my advice since livestream can be cumbersome and irritating to deal with.

I use OBS regularly, so that won't be a problem. I do have a Twitch account but I rarely use it. In fact, I don't have anything on it right now.

I had success with YouTube. Just some lag in the chat on my second stream. I will go back to previous settings as the first stream was smoother in chat. For me it's a better platform because not all of my subscribers are on Twitch.

I have noticed a lot of YouTube live steams have a lot of lag in the chat where the streamer displays the chat in his/her videos. What settings do you use to prevent that?

Chat lag on Twitch isn't much better to be honest. That or YT either one are good choices. I'd hoped to stream some Orbiter missions this year and get back into streaming X-Plane, but life has just been too busy. I haven't streamed in over a year.

I won't be putting the chat on the screen this time. Just means people who miss the livestream won't see the chat.

That was my plan all along. That way, nothing vulgar appears on my videos. I have a zero-tolerance policy on vulgar language.

Twitch has chat replay now though. You can see the recorded chat when watching the video.

Aww really? That's a damn shame. Probably for the best though since stream comments are hell.

That's a neat feature. Lets the streamer scrutinize afterwards for valid comments.
