Stream Settings:

I use the 64-bit version of Open Broadcaster Software and the 64-bit version of WoW to stream.  I recommend playing WoW in full-screen windowed mode for optimal FPS.

I have tried using Dxtory but was plagued with annoying crashes and 32 vs 64-bit compatibility issues.  For now, I am not bothering with Dxtory and see no reason to use it.

If you’re new to streaming, check out this guide.  If you’re familiar with streaming (and XSplit), but new to OBS, then check out this one instead.

My stream settings are based on having 30Mbps download and 5Mbps upload.  If I had higher upload then I would try streaming in 1080p, but when faced with choosing between 720p @ 60FPS or 1080p @ 30FPS, I think the 60FPS looks much better.

You may use this program to determine which Twitch server to connect to.
