16. Click < Settings
17. Next, we will need to configure to Video and Audio settings to get the best picture possible.
18. Click on the Video option
19. Click on Resolution, and choose the option for 1920x1080. This will get us the best quality for streaming online.
20. Make sure the “Bitrate matches resolution” option is turned “off” This will allow us to adjust the bitrate at which we will be sending a signal out to Stellar.
21. Before we make any changes to bitrate, let’s do a quick internet speed test to make sure we have enough bandwidth to push out the broadcast at an acceptable speed. Let’s go to htttp://wwww.speedtest.net and hit the GO button. The results here will determine the output of the stream. The number will are looking for is the “Upload”speed.
22. Now that we have the upload number we can adjust the Bitrate. If you have the bandwidth available lets change the “Bitrate” to “10,000” which is equivalent to 10MB
23. Everything else should be standard and you can now click < Settings
24. Click on Audio
25. Click on “Audio Channels” and change from mono to Stereo everything else can stay the same. Click < Settings
26. Click < Back
27. It will now take you back to your video and confirm at the top of the video screen the settings for the resolution would appear. When ready click the white “Record” button and this will begin the streaming process to Stellar.
28. On the bottom left hand corner you will see what even you are connecting to and the bitrate for the broadcast. This number should be close to the number we adjusted in the Video settings. It will fluctuate depending what is being broadcasted out.
29. Keep in mind that with any internet broadcasting there is a 15-20 latency delay with Stellar. So when you click the broadcast “Record” button in Larix you will not see anything come through on Stellar for the initial 15-20 seconds after you push video out.
30. Once you let this time lapse, you should now see the feed coming in on Stellar and you will now be ready to “Start Broadcast” in Stellar!
