Do you stream games? If so, when?


I personally use a bit of a mix of Twitch and Hitbox. I don't stream very often, but it's there.

(At some point in the future I want to make #x report when people from here go live, too )

I only have an Hitbox account (actually, I have two but I only "use" this one), but I hardly use it at all. The bad max upload speed doesn't help either.

I also haven't streamed in quite a while, but I have planned to stream the infamous GBA version of Sonic Spinball (screen crunch, oh boy) at some point.

In any case, I usually stream at early night.

I am technically on Twitch, as a carry-over from Justin.tv (thus the two highlights don't work anymore), but an effective upload speed of usually sub-1 Mbps prevents me from really streaming anything with acceptable quality...

I'm considering switching to some kinda faster connection that would allow me to stream properly, but I'm not sure just yet.

I'm on twitch! I stream very erratically. When I do it's usually a pokémon randomizer race or similar, but I might get into streaming more one day.

My internet quality isn't the best for streaming, the maximum is 240p, so you can see why I don't stream. I do have both a Hitbox and a Twitch account (and OBS) ready for the day I decide to stream, but it probably won't be anytime soon. Then again it's probably for the best, I doubt I would be able to provide interesting commentary for who knows how much time.

upload'll keep me from streaming... even though it's smaller than a tenth of my download, any upload activity eats up all of my bandwidth...

I have both a Twitch and a Hitbox, though I pretty much only stream on my Twitch. If OBS gains the ability to stream to both services simultaneously, I'll probably give that a try.

I just "finished" a Bioshock Infinite Any% run. Got almost to the end, and wound up forfeiting. But, now that I have an almost complete route, I'll be streaming practice fairly frequently, along with picking up stuff like Super Metroid, Zero Mission and Mario 64. Should be fun!

I have a recent Twitch account but I haven't been doing it lately. I've had thoughts of doing an Oddworld: New 'n Tasty playthrough and maybe some other games but my CPU, even though it's an i5 4440, is a bit rough on some games like Dirty Bomb and PlanetSide 2 especially in 60fps. Internet is fine though so I can go 3000 bitrate if I wanted to.

I'm trying to assemble a schedule for streaming but I'm also taking care of one of my grandparent who I live with. That's why I haven't been doing it that often.

I have both a Twitch and Hitbox but have yet to stream with either due to an incredible .07mbps upload speed. I'll probably begin streaming when I move next month a ton and make a new Twitch/Hitbox that works with my current username instead of my old one.

Until then I'll just stick to watching others stream.

I streamed for a while but kind of gave up. I used twitch some and hitbox far more. But, well, I feel it's useless to stream since I don't really add anything to the content.

Nope, I'm not a streamer. I feel I would be bad at it since I'm bad improvising commentary on the fly. I mean, half the fun of watching a stream is to watch the gameplay plus listen to what the streamer has to say. Otherwise you could just watch a TAS or something. Also, I dislike the idea of being at the center of attention to some group of people. That's just my personal preference I suppose.

I guess the other thing is that there are a bunch of other streamers too. You are one in a sea of many. If you actually want to have a following of some sort then you have to do something that separates yourself from the rest.

But ya, I don't have a problem with streamers.

I'm in the same boat. I'm pretty good at playing games, but I'm really bad at making conversation, let alone adding commentary over playing a game. There'd be pretty much no reason to watch me.

That's not true, really. I actually enjoy those sorts of streams, and as long as you talk in the chat when people are around, I don't think anybody minds. Not everyone needs a scarecam or microphone.

Nobody should have one unless they have a REALLY GOOD REASON TO.

But nobody does and it is quite annoying to see someone's fast plastered over the game, covering something that should be important.

Yeah that's true I suppose. I'm so used to streamers having a cam and mic that I've just assumed that they go together at this point. That give me a slightly different outlook than before. I wouldn't mind playing so much without the cam and mic. At least I wouldn't feel like I'm at the center of attention. For some reason, Metroid Fusion sounds like a fun game to stream but I digress.

Ya I hate when someone's fast is plastered all over a game too

...seriously though, I do agree. It should be mostly about the game or have a main focus on the game.

I stream occasionally on twitch but much more often on hitbox

I'm 2Tie on both, and am part of Xkeeper's "chill streamers" group on hitbox as well

I might stream some more metroid: zero mission if i finish other stuff tonight

I may stream sometimes on Twitch. Lately, I've been doing some 64DD streams. I usually speak French, but English isn't impossible from me either. :p

I also have a hitbox, but not really using it lately, even if the monetization stuff does make me want to try again...

I stream almost every night on hitbox, usually starting between 10-11:30 PM(whatever I post on my facebook page), and sometimes in the afternoon.

Currently playing GTA V on Sundays and Mondays and on every other day, trying to blaze through ZC: Randomizer Outlands before the ZC 2 week quest contest entries get released on the 16th. I sometimes start 30-45 minutes before the posted time and just stream a little Minecraft or Splatoon before the main game.

I don't arsed to stream games, apparantly I did once on Black Ops 2 (not that I did) but that never processed.

If I could stream BO1, to DAILYMOTION, I would (because I left YT a few months back for that site, yet never uploaded anything to it), though. BO1 was an actual good Call of Duty and in my mind the last good one.

I have a Hitbox account from which I sometimes stream.

I'd stream more often if I actually had someone who'd be interested in watching, since just streaming to no audience feels pointless to me. When I stream it's either hacks, misc games, or me working whatever game project I currently had. (Did a few ZC related streams a bit back.)
