Live Streaming with Low Packet Loss? Use Speedify!

One of the issues live streamers are having when broadcasting online is the high packet loss rates they usually have. This is usually generated by network congestion. You will surely recognize the presence of packet loss while streaming on Twitch when you’re dropping frames and your video becomes blocky due to bitrate fluctuations.

However, there’s a solution to all this, which has (once again) been confirmed recently by members of the Twitch community: Speedify!

Read below to see how Speedify can help solve your packet loss issues when streaming.

Whether at home, work, or on-the-go, Speedify is the only VPN that makes your online experiences faster, more reliable and more secure.

Minimizing Packet Loss while Streaming – the Hard Way

The first thing you should do when you encounter heavy packet loss while streaming is check your Internet connection health with a specialized Twitch tool or network diagnostics tool. You may run speed and latency tests just to discover that due to network congestion, faulty or outdated hardware or even software bugs, the bitrate of your Internet connection is fluctuating and even dropping at times, which automatically generates packet loss while live streaming.

So, then, you might want to take this up with your ISP, but that won’t always fix your issue, and it’ll certainly not be a fast fix. Resetting your modem, router and network adapters might lower the rate temporarily, but eventually if you’re getting a lossy Internet connection, you’ll be right where you started, with high packet loss rates while streaming.

How Speedify fixes Packet Loss while Streaming on Twitch

Then, there’s the easy way to minimize packet loss while streaming live – using Speedify to run while you’re broadcasting on Twitch!

Speedify is a next generation channel bonding mobile VPN service that allows you to combine multiple Internet connections at the same time into one super pipe for increased bandwidth and reliability, while lowering latency and minimizing packet loss when streaming.

The secret lays in Speedify’s fast error correction features, even with just one Internet connection. It instantly detects when a network packet has been lost, and resends it before the Internet protocol realizes that. Thereby, slowdowns are prevented before they occur.
