Stream Requirements

Please follow the requirements to avoid issues with the quality of the broadcast.


  • Codec: H.264 (x264)
  • Mode: Strict CBR
  • Keyframe Interval: 2 seconds
  • Maximum bitrate: 6,000kbs


  • Codec: AAC-LC or MP3, Stereo or Mono
  • Maximum bit rate: 160 kbps (AAC), 128 kbps (MP3)
  • Sampling frequency: any (AAC), 44.1 kHz (MP3)

If you stream to Twitch, the main limiting factor is a maximal bitrate of 6000 kbit/s. If you exceed that Twitch bitrate limitation, you will get the error: 5000, and your viewers will not be able to watch your stream.
