Some tips on using StreamEez (standalone)
- Before you change any settings, make sure you are Off Air and the Lock button is unlocked (just click on the button to unlock).
- Choose your Video Source. Xbox 360 normally uses HDMI while PS3 normally uses Component.
- Choose your Audio Source. Xbox 360 normally uses HDMI while PS3 normally uses Line.
- In Quality Profile, the default is High Bandwidth. Depending upon the uplink speed of your Internet service, you may need to change to Medium or Low bandwidth. A laggy or jerky stream means your uplink speed is too low and you need to choose a different Quality Profile.
- If you would like to preview your video in StreamEez, make sure the slider under the preview window is set to 'Normal speed'. You should now see your video in the preview window.
- Then choose your Stream Service, either Twitch or YouTube. ( You must have an account setup with the stream service you wish to use)
- In Channel, select Login. Enter your Login and Password. You will see a message "Gathering credentials" as we check your user name and password.
- Once your user name and password are confirmed, you will see the URL of your stream in the box "Copy stream link". If you click on the words "Copy stream link", the URL will be copied to the clip board.
- Leave the Network Connection as the default
To start streaming
- To start streaming, click the red dot next to "Off Air." The indicator should be changed to "On Air" and you will now be streaming live over the Internet!
- Once you are On Air, you cannot change any settings. You need to stop streaming by clicking the green dot next to On Air to stop the stream.
