I am evaluating the streaming service. I am supplying a live video stream and watching it via more than one video player. They all show the same problem, which is dropping of video quality and stalling.
How might I get to the bottom of this problem?
I tried following the guidelines in the various documentation with no effect.
I do not have problems streaming with a different provider.
Today I’m having the same problem. It’s crashing all the time above 360p. Works best only at 240p.
Are you experiencing poor performance with live streaming or on-demand streaming? Any additional info (such as video IDs) that you can share privately?

FWIW I had a similar issue to this streaming from OBS.
Switched from CPU encode to using the hardware (Intel QSV) encoder and Stream seemed much happier with things after that. I suspect something was amiss with the cpu encoded input stream. Gop was reporting strange numbers like 109.8 frames / 1.83 seconds despite being set to 180f/3s.
Swapped to QSV and got a solid 180 frames / 3 seconds - buffering drops went away once stream had been up for 60ish seconds.
Could be worth a try if you have that option available
Hello with OSB its ruuning ok, but when I try to broadcast live via Vmix it keeps crashing all the time. Do you know any configuration to use with VMIX?

Thank you very much, the problem was solved.
Do you know how can i disable the live audience counter inside the Cloudflare player?
No worries, glad it helped.
From what I know you cant currently disable that in the CF embedded player, you’d need to use some other player (JWPlayer for example) as your frontend to get rid of that
