How to troubleshoot livestreaming to Twitch.tv
I occasionally livestream to Twitch.tv and have done so for over a year now without any major issues, but recently, as of around 15 days ago, I have been constantly dropping frames on OBS. While using dynamic bitrate, I have dropped bitrate constantly. I should be able to stream at a constant 6000kb/s, but now it will drop to zero or fluctuate anywhere from 1000 to 5000, only sometimes staying stable at 6000. I don't know if this is an issue anyone else has faced.
I contacted support on the phone, but they said they couldn't identify any issues. I'm not sure if the problem is with my router, modem, or any wires, but I have run out of ideas. It could be spectrum's connection to Twitch servers upstream, but I am in the dark as of now.
Sometimes, I will drop connection to twitch servers entirely. I have tried several different servers on their end. However, while this happens, anything else I am connected still works. I will be able to play a video game online with zero issues while this happens. Doing speed tests, I still get good enough upload, at least 15-25 mbps, which has been fine up until recently. There has to be an issue out of my hands for something like this, but I cannot identify what it is.
