Input Size / Frame Rate


This is the resolution and frame rate of the video that vMix sends to the stream prior to it being resized for broadcast.

This setting matches what is set in Settings - External Output - vMix Video Device and by default will automatically match the settings used in the Streaming Quality window as close as possible for best performance.



The green lock button automatically adjusts the Input Size to match the settings used in Streaming Quality and should be left green for best results.


Quality


Select the encoding profile to use for the stream. A number of built in presets are included or you can click the cog icon to customise these.

See Streaming Quality for more information


Application


FMLE


Use Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder as the streaming encoder. Requires Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder to be installed which is free from the Adobe web site.

FMLE has built in support for H264 video and MP3 audio. For AAC audio an additional plugin can be purchased from MainConcept.


FFMPEG


This is a free streaming encoder installed with vMix.

FFMPEG supports H264 video and AAC audio.


FFMPEG provides better quality and AAC audio support, but may not be supported by some providers.


Use Hardware Encoder


This check box is available for most NVIDIA graphics cards and substantially reduces the CPU usage of the computer when streaming by taking advantage

of the hardware encoder built into most recent NVIDIA graphics cards, including the 750, and 9xx series.

View Status


View some technical information on the stream while it is running. This is useful when troubleshooting connection issues.


Save and Close
