You can test the speed of your connection by going to http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and clicking on San Francisco. This will test your available download and upload bandwidth, but you only need to be concerned with the upload speed. Test your speed a few times to make sure it isn’t fluctuating greatly and refer to the chart below when selecting your output setting.
Upload Speeds - - - - Encoding Preset
0.3 – 0.6 Mbps - - - - Lowest SD Quality – 200 kbps
0.6 – 0.8 Mbps - - - - Basic SD Quality – 350 kbps
0.6 – 0.8 Mbps - - - - Standard SD Quality – 350 kbps
0.8 – 1 Mbps - - - - High SD Quality – 500 kbps
> 1 Mbps - - - - Best SD Quality – 600 kbps
If your available bandwidth is less than 0.3 Mbps, try the Lowest SD Quality setting. If you find that your broadcast keeps disconnecting you will most likely want to use the broadcast console in your Ustream account dashboard.
