My Twitch Stream Keeps Disconnecting; How to Fix
Twitch.tv is the market leader of live streaming video platform focused on video gaming, eSports competitions and creative content. Hundreds of millions of people watch every day the most exciting gaming broadcasts and given its nature, Twitch is hungry for bandwidth and reliability from the users’ Internet connection, especially if you’re streaming (broadcasting) on Twitch with OBS or any other solution.
Every day people are complaining about Twitch buffering and streaming disconnects on social media and if you’re reading this article, you’re probably having similar issues with Twitch losing connection, getting dropped from Twitch servers.
Read below to see a quick and easy fix for a completely smooth Twitch.tv gaming experience without dealing with streaming disconnects
Why Does My Twitch Stream Disconnect When Broadcasting or Watching?
First of all, we will exclude any software conflicts in this between Twitch and the software you’re using to broadcast the stream. As mentioned above, when broadcasting or watching Twitch streams, your computer requires a good amount of bandwidth from your Internet connection to work properly, so when determining why your Twitch.tv is dropping out, you should look at your Internet connection.
It might be that your Internet connection is too slow and doesn’t have enough bandwidth for streaming from Twitch, or that the connection is flaky and experiencing excessive “packet loss.” What’s worse, is that both of these issues are often amplified when you are on the move (e.g. watching Twitch.tv streams when traveling) since mobile devices can not easily transition between different Wi-Fi networks or cell towers without interrupting apps and dropping streams.
Regardless of the root cause, by default any device, whether it’s a computer, laptop, iPhone, Android smartphone is designed to only use one Internet connection at a time, despite the fact that they are often connected to more than one connection – e.g. in the case of mobile phones: Wi-Fi and mobile data. But, what if you could use ALL connections for their combined speed and reliability?
