a6500 settings for Live Streaming

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Sorry if this isn't in the right forum, but I was hoping to ask for some group wisdom here.

I use the a6500 for live streaming to Facebook through a platform called OBS. But I'm having some glitches because (I think) I'm pumping out too big of a signal.

What settings would you suggest to reduce the workload?

Any setting that gives you a smaller bitrate than what you've currently set. "Bitrate" are those funny Mbps values in the linked document.

You will anyhow be limited by the smallest bandwidth of either WLAN, LAN, switches, routers and/or bandwidth as supplied by your internet connection, which may be part of the total transmission chain.

Awesome, so based on the document linked I could start streaming at:

  • MP4 file format
  • 30p/25p
  • 6 Mbps

for a 720/30p 6M output, correct?

I'll give it a shot to make sure it's not to pixelated.

Thanks!

Well, since you were asking how to reduce, and I didn't know where you had started out from, I could only give you this general hint. But your selection

is in fact the lowest that's documented in the help guide. Good luck! Maybe you can let us know how it finally worked out.

    • Welcome to our forum!
    • ... just to say hello to all of you. I'm new to this forum and I hope to get new contact to other A7 addicts. Best wishes - Andreas
    • I was looking for an official number for the A7ii for shutter life expectancy but couldn't find anything on sonys page. On other bodies like A7Rii iii snd A6400 A6600 and so on they state how much the shutter has been tested for. If ypu google it you get unconfirmed 200k, but that isn't from sony themselves so Im suspicious about that.  Btw, how much worse is the af on the 7ii compared to the 7rii? 
    • Hi All I'm new to this forum and did a quick check as i'm sure this has been answered before but I couldn't find anything. I have an A6000 that I want to download the Time Lapse app to but in order to do this I need to connect it to a laptop. I've now tried two different laptops and two different genuine Sony cables but still nothing. I've been through the troubleshooting on the Sony website but none of that worked including trying the different USB Connection settings. Any ideas?
