Make the following changes on the "Video" tab of OBS settings:
- Base (Canvas) Resolution: 1920x1080

Then on the "Output" tab of OBS, set your bitrate to 3,000:
Click "OK" to save your OBS Settings.
First, check your camera to find its resolution capabilities. Never select a resolution in OBS that is higher than that of your webcam.
Next, run a network speed test to find your upload bandwidth. We recommend using our custom speed test here: https://volumevideo.speedtestcustom.com/
We recommend comparing your speed test to the following table:
|Resolution||Minimum Upload Speed|
|3840x2160 (4K)||12000 kbps|
Note: 1000 kbps = 1 Mbps
Please keep in mind that internet speed is just one factor that affects the quality of your stream. We recommend monitoring the OBS status bar while broadcasting and making changes to your resolution as needed to achieve the highest quality broadcast for your setup!
If you are streaming at a higher resolution, you will need to adjust your bitrate correspondingly. Higher resolutions and FPS require more bandwidth and processing power on your computer. If you are unsure of what your system can handle, start with the default settings below and then adjust based on your stream quality.
|Resolution||Video Bitrate - 30 FPS
||Video Bitrate - 60 FPS
|1280x720||3500 kbps||5500 kbps||160 kbps|
|1920x1080||6500 kbps||8000 kbps||192 kbps|
|2560x1440||9000 kbps||12000 kbps||320 kbps|
|3840x2160 (4k)||12000 kbps||16000 kbps||320 kbps|
Note: Audio and video bitrates are set as 'kbps' within OBS.
