Wirecast, Equipment, and Streaming
Emergency Use Only
Before You Stream
Check your internet connection. Preform a Speedtest and compare results to the chart below.
|30 FPS||60 FPS|
|480p||3 Mbps||6 Mbps|
|720p||10 Mbps||15 Mbps|
Make sure the main slider at the bottom right is at the “U”.
The level of the actual channel should be around the turn to 12 o’clock position.
Lastly, if it is still quiet there is a Gain knob below the XLR input. Adjust the gain knob so that it is around the 2 o’clock position.
There are three main culprits for dropped frames or jitters in a live stream. The most common is internet connection issues. High CPU usage can also cause problems with a live stream. Additionally, in rare cases schools have encountered a bug in Wirecast where the template gets corrupted and causes dropped frames and jitters.
High CPU Usage
We recommend CPU usage remain below 80% for most of the stream, short spikes of CPU usage over 80% are normal. If CPU usage is consistently over 80% for minutes at a time your stream can suffer because of it. To reduce the CPU usage see our article dedicated to reducing high CPU usage.
The error that causes dropped frames and jitters is very rare and usually occurs after upgrading from Wirecast 7 or older to Wirecast 9 or newer. Unfortunately the only available solution is to completely rebuild the Wirecast template. To do this quickly see our article dedicated to quickly rebuilding a Wirecast template.
There have been rare cases that the audio bars do not show to the right of the LIVE window. If this happens restart Wirecast. It may take a few restarts to get the bars to display.
