What game are you trying to stream? Is it on Twitch.tv?
What software?

I recommend using "Open Broadcast Software " (OBS) as a free, open source, up-to-date streaming software.

In Video Encoding, set Quality to 6 and your Max bitrate / Buffers to ~6000kb/s.

Streaming in 1080p and 60 fps can be quite demanding on your PC, and unless you're a Twitch.TV partner, you will force your viewers to watch in the same quality. Meaning, they can't downgrade to "Low" or "Medium" settings, that's a service only offered to partners.

Hence, most people settle on 720p/30fps streaming, so that viewers don't watch a choppy mess of a stream because they don't have the bandwidth to watch.

Anyways, report back on what you're trying to do and I'll see if I can help.

720p/30 fps 2000 bitrate. Your cpu isn't that good for streaming.

Go to Broadcast > justin.tv/twitch > Settings > Setup Wizard (in the bottom left corner)

and that will give you your best settings based on hardware and connection.

Send me your twitch so I can help you to see if it looks good.

1) When you stream L4D2, in OBS, the bottom right corner of OBS tells you how much kb/s you're sending to Twitch. What are the numbers shown? Does it go in the yellow/red sometimes? Make sure you put enough bandwidth so that the number never goes over.

2) When you're streaming, disable the preview window by right-clicking it and un-checking "Enable View".

3) Drop the Quality in Encoding to something lower, like 3-4.

4) Close other apps that are running while you stream.

5) Change the server to which you're streaming. I.E. Most of the time I stream to US East/New York, but sometimes, that server becomes heavily congested because some StarCraft/LOL championship is being run through that server.

You can change to Global Load or somewhere else and see if that affects anything.

There is a lot of stuttering in some parts but 70% of the time the game runs fine.
