Live transmission stops every 29 minutes
Hello all!, I'm using Procaster to stream my PC desktop but the stream stops every 29 minutes (about 29 min), and I should Stop and "Go Live" to start the transmission again.
Can someone tell me why this happens?
Thank you !

Are you using Procaster on a Mac or a PC? Try going into the Preferences menu, then to the video tab, and uncheck "Device Rate." Then manually select your camera's frame-rate from the dropdown menu.

Next, go int the Desktop top and change the Effect Render Method to "Simple". Save your changes.

didnt work... same error around 30 minutes

i lowered bitrate to 300, fps to 20...

this is very bad...
i do several 3 hours events... having to do this every 30 minutes when i paid for a basic plan is very bad...

Hi Isaque,

In that case, I would need to take a look at your logs. Go into the Preferences ---> Video tab ---> select "Save logs."

This will save a zip file to your desktop. Please attach this in an email to Bring it to ATTN: Brandon.

Also, keep in mind that the Basic plan applies to the New Livestream platform, not the Original Livestream:
