Twitch streaming while racing

Post by TechnologicMau5 on Tue 8 Jul 2014 - 20:43

Hey everyone, just sharing an important bit of info I discovered while racing in the first round of the GP championship.

Coming around to the 4th corner on lap one, I ended up tossing my teammate BR BOLLAND 95 off the track. I saw it coming, and did my best to avoid it. Although I should have narrowly missed him (after checking the replay), there was slight lag, and the collider for his car wasn't synced. I was completely bewildered. Yes, I was streaming while I was racing, but that shouldn't have been the problem, shouldn't being the key word. Even with me streaming, I still had 7.5MB of upload bandwidth free, 3x what was being occupied by the stream. Furthermore, that is also 3x what I had at my old place, where I had no issues. After checking the recorded stream, I found that it dropped about 4-5 seconds at the time that I threw BOLLAND off the road, so I knew the stream was still responsible. It then occurred to me that it was the Xbox itself that had issues handling the network traffic, not my internet. With this realization, I am obviously holding off from using the Twitch app while racing, and HIGHLY suggest that everyone else do the same in ANY XBOX ONE series they compete in.

I'm just happy we caught onto this early, and can hopefully prevent any future issues that may arise from people using Twitch while racing, regardless of how fast their internet is.

 Cheers

It does work we have used it for CQRs last 10 race nights but you need a really good upload I.e 10 meg+. The only time we have had any lag due to processing is 15 players all liveried up around the longest track on the game so a hell of a lot of detail that probably hasn't been tested by T10.

The main cause is if you have slow upload and choose to stream you will cause the lag in the lobby's.

That's the thing, I've got 10 upload, which hits 11 almost all the time. I didn't have issues with anyone else though, so it may not bring up mass issues, but it can still easily cause problems with specific people.

It may be a small thing, but it can still cause problems which may cost other people their race. It's simply a precaution.

I very much doubt it was your fault then unless your speeds really dropped, more likely others slow internet less than 1meg which means they shouldn't even be gaming on Xbox One really.

Well we shouldn't bar anyone from racing simply because their internet isn't quite fast enough, we all know ISP's are pretty damn scummy when it comes to internet prices. We have no issues with each other when I'm not streaming.

Well Xbox one has minimum requirements for online gaming if there not being met then there only causing problems for everyone. We have members who want a Xbox One but haven't got the internet capabilities so choose to not buy it as they would ruin everyone else's races.

Try a factory reset on your console means you will need to reinstall everything but might sort this issue you have going on with the twitch app.

Regardless, this is still an issue that has come up, and will undoubtedly be a concern in the future. The Xbox One did just come out, and things aren't near as optimized as they could be, just look at how far the 360 has come. People should still refrain from using the Twitch app unless they are 100% certain there won't be any issues. Ultimately they will be responsible for any issues that may arise.

Yeh I totally understand why you brought it up just giving a few reasons as to why you may be seeing it and just saying it does work but there could be other reasons why which are not down to your connection and streaming.

Yea, I'm sure it will be fine in the future once both the games and the Twitch app get more refined, they just aren't quite there yet.
