I have the same problem, an error box pops up as soon as I click 'Start broadcasting' and then even though it tries to start, it just doesn't work? Any help would be appreciated. I have Windows 7, maybe that has something to do with it?

Run these two tests and link to the results
http://speedtest.net/
and
http://www.pingtest.net/

also post the exact upload settings you're using.

Where do I find the upload settings?

I did notice my audio sampling rate was set to low so I fixed that and that fixed audio issues I posted about in another thread.

Upload bandwidth might mean you should set your stream to target 500kbps.
The Pingtest couldn't test for packet loss which may mean you need to update/install java. Your ping is OK and jitter is good. I don't think you're having a packet loss issue but you should look into getting that to work.

minipolkadots, Those are very bad results.
The server you checked with is 250 miles away can you let speedtest find one closer or is that the closest?

You should check to see what speed your ISP claims they can provide and if you are getting well below that you need to contact them to fix the speed. Also the ping test is very poor and even at slower speeds should still be A.
The ISP should fix that as well.

Default Ping (latency) vs. upload speed

What would be better to send good quality video upstream

A 3G wireless connection with a max of 1mps upload with bad 1000 Ping
Or a wired DSL connection with a max 512kb upload with good ping

Thanks

A Hobson's choice.
It depends how and where you're using the 3G. I've found it can be very unreliable depending on location and carrier.

I'd run the ping test I linked to above and look at the overall letter grade. My hunch is the DSL will be better but I've seen issues with that as well. Throw in wireless and you add to the risk. If you have deep pockets you could get a bonded 3G device. Livestream has LivePack
