Stops recording after 5 hours
 
So livestream stops recording after 5 hours which can be annoying because I didn't realize until an hour after so I lost an hour of gameplay for my on-demand. Why the limit?

Probably due to disk space considerations. Just start a new sequence every so often, if you can, to avoid this.

As a side note, I don't care what game you're streaming, no one is interesting in watching five straight hours of it, or seeking through five hours of it for an exciting part.

Segment your game stream at logical break points. :)

Actually there are plenty of people who want to watch full playthroughs of the entire game. I wouldn't speak for the whole world if I were you.

In Livestream Studio I cue the camera that I'm already streaming and then go to it again. That can initiate a new 5 hour recording interval.

I'm not sure that's possible directly in Procaster but a workaround might be going to the studio while streaming the game and seeing if you can re initiate another recording interval.

Thanks for the warning ahead of time, I say with utter sarcasm.

And don't whine about me bumping a three-year-old topic if your results still show up in Google and you don't lock old threads (if you're the kind of community that cries about that crap)
