IF YOU ARE STREAMING, DON’T USE PROCASTER.
DON’T. USE. PROCASTER.
Livestream procaster consumes large amounts of cpu for nothing. No joke, nothing. As a result your stream can become laggy and sometimes it can damage your hardware as your PC has to push itself to keep what your streaming functioning as well as possible.
"But if we can’t use procaster what can we use insteaaaaad?"
Simple. There’s two programs, both that are free, that you can use that uses very little CPU and has more options than procaster. These programs are called Xsplit and OBS. To keep your head in one piece, I’m going to go over how to stream on Livestream with Xsplit.
Under the cut of course.
Reblogging this so I can find it later
I’ve been having a kind of a creative dry spell and my art has been horrific lately. Everything I was drew was looking sub par and without energy and I wasn’t sure what was going on. I was getting into this “I guess I just have to admit I’m a crappy artist and I’m just not going to get any better. Maybe I should stop” type mind-set.
THEN, today I started listening to different music. Something more upbeat and suddenly I had more energy, more excitement. I had been listening to sad songs for weeks. Not because I was sad or depressed, but just because I thought they were pretty. But I guess they were taking their toll.
Got my sugar sweet bubblegum happy pop mix out and things are going much better! Sometimes when we’re down, maybe it means we’ve got to take some time to look at what we’ve been doing lately and see if there’s anything we need to change a bit.
