    Hi everyone,

    We were thinking around here that it would be nice to show off some rounds. I seen many rounds done on youtube and they are good but twitch may offer an easier way, which wouldn't involve recording videos and then compressing and uploading them.

    Has anyone been streaming successfully via twitch? Anyone has any interest? Specifically for the big tournaments, high stakes ready go's? If so, please let me know and link your stream pages so we can check it out.


    p.s I moved both replay sticky threads to community introductions forum, so if you are wondering what happened, they are there.

    I use Hypercam 2 and Wondershare video converter and then upload to youtube currently but this sounds like it might be a better way as my current way takes ages to upload.

    I have opened a twitch account but dont know how to start recording?

    Any advice would be great..

    I have been using xsplit to broadcast, but have just started playing with OBS.  This seems to be really good, less complicated and less adjustments than xsplit and produces a great broadcast.  Go to for download.  Also if you have a twitch account they have tutorials on how to setup a few of the different broadcast softwares.  Remember though to broadcast a decent stream and still be able to play the game you need an i5 chip or better, 6g ram and internet upload of at least 3-4 mbps. Anything lower and you will have meter issues and broadcast quality will also degrade.


    Now using OBS on

    I might have a problem then, According to the sticker on my laptop, I only have an i3 chip and 4mb ram. My upload speed is only 1.6mbps.

    I will give it a try and hope for the best, if nothing else, then I will upgrade my line and get a better pc.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    When will the WGT game client be a compliant game source for game capture mode like with the new xsplit gamecaster?  Only the main screen can be captured while the actual game client window will not.  This ability would be in line with almost all pc games. This game window capture should work just like most of the games that can be played on a pc.

    no wonder you cant game dont want it......its a nice site...but really sounds like some North Koreans are starting to manage the site

    So you are saying we cant record our rounds anymore?

    Why not?

    What a silly rule!

    Can someone from WGT confirm/deny please, hate to have my account closed purely because I am having some fun.

    They dont want us to have proof of when the game screws us over so they dont have to try to explain what happened. Guess it back to submitting bug reports lmao.
