Broadcast Terminated

by SangMan » Mon Jun 24, 2013 11:18 pm

I click broadcast and 5 seconds later it say broadcast terminated test bandwith.

Does this have anything to do with my upload?

If not what could be the problem?

My upload at the moment is 8.5mbs and it hovers around that and 10.

I linked my twitch.tv account with a new key as well.

Thanks in advance.

It actually means: Broadcast terminated -> please do a Bandwidth Test
In your channel settings thats the "Test Bandwidth" button.

You would also help us if you fill in your Hardware/Internet Specs to your profile (ucp.php?i=173) and if you could tell us what settings you used in the channel setup. Especially the bitrate would be interesting.

If you can, just take a screenshot of your stream channel settings, so it's easier.
(just block out your stream key if you use that)

@soldier075

So you've already updated your Twitch plugin, and you also get your broadcast terminated after some time?

Please post your stream channel settings here as well.

Wait, so you're still getting the same issue here?
viewtopic.php?f=91&t=20506

If so, just make sure to update the plugin.

But yeah, no worries if you can only start testing tomorrow, just keep us updated.

Same problem, I cannot start my broadcast, and nothing has changed. Just attempted to go live and no dice, auto terminate, and when I try and test my bandwith it says "aborted" after attempted to connect. I tested my connection off of Xsplit and it works perfectly.

Just to doublecheck, but did you enter your password or stream key properly?

I think that can happen if the stream key is incorrect.

Yes double checked my password, because it changed the other day and I had updated it properly. Still have the same problem today.

I recently had a few people being able to get around an authentication problem by resetting their stream key and using this new key in XSplit. Thinking your streams might be aborting because of this.
You can do this right here: http://www.twitch.tv/broadcast
First click show key, then reset key, then use this key instead of your password in the Twitch Plugin.

Anything, I missed my stream last night and in about 6 hours I am slated to stream again. Any ideas would be helpful.

Alrighty, still cannot figure it out nothing I have tried has work. Reinstalling, resetting, double checked all my information. Instant termination. Could really use some support here, considering I am close to losing another streaming day.

Try doing this:

In the main broadcaster window, go to Broadcast > Add Channel > More > then install the newer Twitch Plugin (it will have a black and white logo instead of the purple one). If it was already installed, uninstall it then reinstall the plugin again.

After that, try entering your credentials again.

I had tried that, but I re did it to see if I just messed it up and no dice. I copied what I got from trying to test my bandwith though.

"Initializing connection to server...
rtmp://live-lax-backup.twitch.tv/app/
Trying to stream maximum data rate of 3096 kbps...
Initializing transmission to server... (100%)
Server authentication failed.
Aborted.
"

Its more information.

Looks like Specsquee was getting an incomplete stream key from Twitch, so he just had to make sure that he was getting the complete one from the broadcast page.

To anyone else having this problem, please double-check the stream key you are getting. :)
