Overview

STAGE TEN is an advanced production platform that gives you tools to create dynamic live streams on YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, or Twitter. 

General Tips

  • Always use the latest version of Google Chrome.
  • Turn off any ad-blockers - anything that blocks UDP traffic will create issues.
  • If possible, disable any VPNs as they may throttle bandwidth between locations.
  • Use a direct ethernet connection as opposed to WiFi.
  • Close any non-essential browser tabs or applications.
  • If using a laptop, we recommend keeping it plugged in.
  • Using a headset will provide a better experience.
  • Note: Ensure that you do not completely obscure the STAGE TEN studio when you are broadcasting
