Default Getting a Low Bandwidth message.

I'm trying to stream a game called League of Legends though every time i try after about 10 mins of streaming i get a message saying that there's Low Bandwidth and it needs to restart the stream this message also alt tabs me.

For some reason i cant put it on Game Mode when i play league of legends it just doesn't seem to work well anyways this is the results i got from Speedtest.net

Download speed: 23.73 mb/s
Upload 0.51 mb/s
Ping: 15 ms

Can someone please tell me the settings I should be using and if im able to go into Game Mode when playing league of Legends also i want the stream to be the highest quality possible.

Also this low bandwidth problem only works when i play league of legends and also i want the game to lag as little as possible when im playing I don't mind if it makes the quality worse.

Swooz,

0.51mbps upload speed is very low and is probably the reason you are running into trouble when trying to stream. Please note that all network activity uses bandwidth, so if you are also playing the game online then this can also affect the stability of your broadcast.

For streaming games, we usually recommend at least 1mbps upload bandwidth.

Is there any good way (Livestream or else) anyone knows about to monitor upload speed available? Sure, I will notice when my viewers complain about lag, but being preempatative never hurts.

Default Upload speed for games

It is ideal to have a minimum speed of 700Kbps to stream efficiently your games without any issue.

If you games have high graphics, you can also use graphic cards.
