If you watched our livestream last Saturday, you know that we are back to streaming Minecraft via my YouTube channel. There were a couple of hiccups, but those got resolved and we will be consistently streaming again.

For those that didn’t know I even did this, I take a couple hours at night to livestream a Christian, family-friendly stream on YouTube. If you are ever interested in seeing all of the archived streams, check out my Patreon page.

A Couple Of Resolved Glitches

As I shared above, the previous stream had a couple of glitches that I didn’t fix until after the stream was over.

First, my Internet is less than half the speed here in Ohio as it was in Colorado. Because of this, I had to drop the bit rate (how much information I’m sending over the Internet) down to 4500 from 10,000. That fixed the buffering issue immediately. Unfortunately at this time, the best Internet my residence is offered is 60Mb down and 4Mb up, compared to the previous 125Mb down and 25Mb up. (The upload rate is the key for this stream.)

Secondly, my lighting at the new house was nonexistent before the stream so my facecam was dark. I setup my newly purchased LED light but did not play with it ahead of time and it was too dim on the stream. Now it’s perfect. You can see the layout for this on my Instagram photo.

So I’m looking forward to doing more Let’s Plays, Livestreams, and Patreon Exclusives (content you can only see if you are a patron). I’m uping the content quality every chance I get and this is a big jump for me right now. I wonder what else I can do.

Let me know if you have any thoughts on how I can make this better!
