Streamers with jobs

Twitch is being a buffering monster for me today. I tried to watch but just couldn't get more than two or three seconds of video in between thirty second spans of buffering.

Maybe next time

If Masher_66 is a GWJer, then thanks for watching and your comments. I was bloody awful at it.

Yep. That was me. The delay on Twitch makes trying to be interactive a challenge, so some of my comments probably seemed out of place and I didn't want to distract too much from the gameplay.
Seemed like you had things under control overall for never having played before. Especially liked the "disposing of bodies off a cliff for distance" mini-game.

Thanks for tuning in, Button. I think twitch comments might show up more easily if I streamed with them in the sidebar - which is an option on PS4 - but that means a smaller window for the gameplay. The app is the alternative, but it does have some issues.

I can't be the only one that chucks bodies off cliffs in games, just to see how they bounce. If they could fit a skateboarding mini game into the MGS series, I'm sure they could manage corpse pinball.

I played Race the Sun. I think it's on sale on Steam at the moment. (Also is there a thread where one can post videos of gameplay rather than taking up space here?)

How do people go about streaming on Twitch and then getting videos of the stream that are edited to show just the best bits? I know Twitch automatically uploads videos to Youtube, but I'd prefer it if I could just edit it all down first to have just the highlights!

Use this, or a similar service, to get the video and then edit on your laptop. There is some highlight feature on twitch, but I don't know how that works.

The highlight feature on twitch is really easy to use. I've used it to make just about all of my highlights. It just, basically, opens up the VOD, and you click and drag in the time bar at the bottom to highlight the portion of the video you want. When you finish making the highlight, you can have twitch upload the highlight to YouTube.

If you want more robust editing, you can, of course, use something to get the video on your machine (or just have OBS also output to a file while you're streaming so that you don't have to download it from anything) and edit there, but Twitch's built-in highlight feature is absurdly easy to use.

That sounds very useful. Perhaps the thing to bear in mind is the balance between speed of editing and quality of video; there's a real drop in quality when twitch exports to youtube.

Thanks for the link, I'll check it out! I was going to use the OBS to record and stream, but it sounds from reading around that it's a bit heavy on the CPU to do both. I may give it a go, I know the highlight thing is quite cool, although is it possible with it to say take a section from 1:03-2:04 and a section from 5:25-7:10 (just for example) and putting them in the same highlight?

I don't save highlights anymore - not after Twitch muted most of my Castlevania: SOTN playthrough. If I do get back into streaming - and I've been doing it sporadically - I'd be saving those videos to my hard drive to upload them to Youtube.

Can anyone recommend software for Mac that will allow me to download my twitch streams? At the moment I'm using NightDev, but because the servers are hammered I have to sit there and keep re-trying until it works.

I'm willing to pay for software that works without the hassle, but I can't find a clear winner, or one that people say *isnt'* riddled with adware.

Personally, I prefer to record my stream locally with my streaming software. I cant' speak for others, but XSplit lets you tell it where to dump your stream locally as you're streaming.

So as I'm uploading bits to restream.io - I'm also saving that same data to my 3TB network drive. In theory this is so I'll edit the files later, but I never seem to get around to that step.

I agree with Wolfstar, I'd really try and record locally, it'll save data going back and forth. But I'm helpless when it comes to Mac, so I can't help you there.

I'm playing on a PS4, so part of the appeal is streaming to twitch without any hassle. It's just getting said video down from twitch to edit htat's the problem. Nightdev is great, when the servers aren't overloaded. I want a way to bypass them and get to the video directly on twitch after I finish on PS4.

Ahhh.

Yeah, it's a bit more complicated with Consoles. Short of grabbing a capture card and streaming to pc then editing that, NightDev is likely your best bet.

on that note , stay away from the hauppauge Rocket; it has a background buzz and weird clicking noises on the audio.

I played CoD and, via twitch chat, spoke to Clusks about potato addiction.

Oh yay!!! I can't wait!

Could be good, as long as there's a PS4 app and it doesn't try to claim copyright on wheezes and sighs in my videos.

My favorite was when I live streamed all of "Vanishing of Ethan Carter" and both Twitch and YouTube claimed a violation on some "wilderness sounds" thing. :facepalm:

YouTube is muuuuch more copyright sensitive than Twitch, so that could be an issue. I've actually turned all music off in my videos because of it.

I've never been a big fan of playing music while I game - but when it came to playing GTA V, I've had to keep the music off in there or lose my ability to broadcast and archive to YouTube. :/

Exactly. I got hit with a copyright strike because of music via X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, so I just turned it all off ever since.

I searched and still couldn't find this thread before making my own. Oh well. I'll leave it open in case there are specific discussion topics.

It's live now, go check it out!

This may not be an issue now on Twitch, but believe me it will be in the future. It's only a matter of time before the content owners want a cut of that pie as well.

Also here:

There's a chance that my copy of the Phantom Pain will arrive tomorrow. If I'm able I'll stream the gameplay. My plan is stream every time I play it.

Already got mine, PS4 wouldn't let me stream it yesterday or today

You're the second person to tell me that. Did you try streaming using twitch on PS4 or the Sony software?
