Turn off wifi and connect with ethernet
Make sure you're connected to the network by ethernet and have turned off wifi. Wifi signals aren't consistent enough to support low-latency live streaming.
Close all non-essential applications and browser tabs
To ensure the smoothest possible live stream, close any browser tab and application that isn't absolutely essential.
Turn off software auto-updates and desktop notifications
Don't get surprised by an automatic update or distracted by a desktop notification in the middle of your broadcast.
