Aspects to consider


Speed:

As a first step, before starting to publish content, it is necessary to perform a speed test, especially the upload bit rate, since this is linked to the quality of the broadcast that we must configure; It is recommended to carry out this test on the page https://testmy.net/ it is very fast and accurate when it comes to giving the results, and it is hosted 100% in the USA, another page that can be used is https: // www. speedtest.net/en The recommended bitrate should be at least 10MB upload.

Confirmation of the Encoding Profile for a correct restream from Platform

To correctly integrate the broadcast to the platform, the parameters that we have configured in it must match exactly in the encoder, since any of the 2 platforms mentioned, generates a series of alerts if it is not receiving the signal properly.
