What do you guys think the most popular live video streaming website is? I think it is twitch tv but I am not sure. I am planning on streaming GW2 game play with some commentary, but I am not sure what has the most viewers.
Twitch.tv seems to be the big dog atm, closely followed by own3d.tv. Other than that, in Germany we have Xfire, but personally I think it sucks. The encoder is rather clumsy and I don't like when people force a community on me when all I want to do is stream and have a link to share with people.
I also have xfire, but 90% of the time when I hit the buttons to stream and record it never works and I have changed and messed with all the settings and nothing worked :P
Yeah, Xfire doesn't have its own encoder. It uses some other company's encoder underneath, I think it's ustream or that other site of which I forgot the name. And they don't get the proper encoder, it's some trimmed down version. Frankly, I wouldn't bother with Xfire, it's more work than any other.
