EDIT: SOLUTION FOUND
I have 1mb upload speed. I know its not a lot but I've seen plenty of guides to run under 720p
I have the CPU power to handle the rendering easily, i7 3770k

I'm trying 800x600 (16:10) @ 20-30 fps
VHscrCap is capturing 1920x1200 @ 60fps

Xsplit settings:
Codec: X.264
Bitrate kbps: 500
Mode: VBR
Quality: 6
Keyframe interval: default
VBV buffer kbit (500)
Video size: Default
Audio is Speex 42.2 bitrate

Not sure what to do, but when I watch my stream it runs at about 3-8 FPS.
In game runs fine and I've set affinity for VHscrCap and Xsplit to 3 cores each and SC2 to 2 cores. Seems fine?

halp?


EDIT:

Just noticed, the stream captures my mouse perfectly fine at 30fps that its set.. Just the game isn't being captured any higher than 5fps?
Which is strange.. Suggestions?

Well, I just figured it out after 5 minutes of posting. Sorry everyone :P
I've been looking for the answer for 2-3 days now!

Anyone else who uses VHScrCap - Untick the "optimize capture" tickbox.

Sorry guys ^^,

I stream for TDTV, we are also in the same boat of having shit upload speed.

Most of my streams I run at the following which is more than watchable for FPS and LoL

Xsplit settings:
Codec: X.264
Bitrate kbps: 750
Mode: VBR
Quality: 10 (dont make much difference tho)
Keyframe interval: default
VBV buffer kbit (1500)
Video size: Default
Audio is AAC LC LQ 80 bitrate
Resolution most times - 960 : 540 ( some times I can get away with 720p)

I also have a 17 3770k, 16Gb Kingston RAM, and a handful of SSD's and a WD black drive.

The streaming location I test before each cast but since last xsplit update I have been finding Default location pretty solid.

This is pretty much my "stock" settings but each game has a few variations. (CoD4, LoL, Mw3, Black Ops, Bo2)

People still use xsplit?

Edit: Try using OBS, I wasn't able to brush 30fps using xsplit, but I can get a constant 45 (i haven't tried higher) using OBS. Worth a shot. It's superior to xsplit IMO.

For a very very basic stream I have heard its good. I tried it but the options for inserting media / backgrounds / images in general are still no where near the possibilities of Xsplit. But if you are just doing a basic play and stream then OBS will do the task.
