Stream configurations with different settings can lead to faulty delivery and transcodings
(e.g. black screens for viewers).
A detailed guide on how to set up Gameshow, OBS, XSplit, and AVerMedia's RECentral can be found here.
Quality settings like bitrate, resolution or FPS should be set according to the bandwidth of your internet connection, the processing power of your PC, and the feedback of your viewers.
Being able to stream with a high bitrate will improve the quality of your stream, but will exclude a portion of your viewers from being able to watch it, as their personal internet connections might not be fast enough.
