Alright, so as I indicated in the update to the last post, my internet connection issues have improved, at least to some extent. I'm still closely monitoring the situation but for the time being I have been able to live stream without issue.
That having been said, in an effort to hedge my bets, I've decided to add a new content platform, LBRY. The goal here is to give me a secondary platform to upload the VODs or some of my better Twitch streams too. Twitch is an amazingly unstable platform lately, both from a technical standpoint (I've had viewers complain to me about it) and from a social standpoint with all the DMCA Strikes and insanely vague bans of career streamers like Dr. Disrespect.
UPDATE 6/9: The frame drops appear to be the result of the fact that my Spectrum Business Cable Internet connection is dropping between 1% and 6% of packets. I discovered this while testing this afternoon and the cable company is sending somebody out on Thursday. So we shall see.
So long story short - the technical gremlins associated with streaming are beginning to wear me down. If it's not one thing it's another. It's a pain in the ass to keep streaming especially when my cable modem decides to start dropping packets during a stream or when phantombot bugs me to update and the latest build won't finishing initializing on my SBC where I run it.
So it's been a rocky road, but it would appear that I have a fully functional streaming setup and that I'm able to produce content. I managed to complete my inaugural game BioForge on stream yesterday and that marks the official beginning of the second age of the Bumbling Rogue.
Let's see how long it lasts this time around, eh?
