Required bandwidth to stream games

Streaming games over broadband requires the following fast broadband uplink and a correctly configured router.

Broadband networks have far greater downlink speed than uplink speed. 

The uplink speed determines the maximum resolution that can be streamed. 

You need at least 4Mb-6Mb uplink to use StreamMyGame at 720p.

Please try out our free software over your broadband network before subscribing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Setting up your Server's router (WiFi or Cable)

BEFORE you try to stream a over broadband make sure your have recorded a game to a video file and streamed over your local LAN.

To Stream over broadband you only need to configure the router connected to the StreamMyGame Server.

You will need to access your router configuration screen and also know the IP address of your Server.

To get to your configuration screen, most home routers can be accessed by simply typing 192.168.0.1 in your browser's URL box.

If this does not work, look in your router manual.

The StreamMyGame Server needs inbound ports 55082 to 55091 UDP and TCP

To find the IP address of the Server open a Command Prompt and type "ipconfig". 

You can find the Command Prompt on XP in Start/Accessories/Command Prompt.

If the Server computer IP address is 192.168.1.10 the router configuration page will look like this.

Notice that this router enables Type to be set as Both, UDP and TCP.



Here is an example of a Belkin Router setup screen.

Notice that this router does not have an option to set the Type as Both, so a separate option for UPD and TCP must be set.

Also the Belkin router has an additional Private Port option which needs to have the same setting as the Inbound Ports.




Here is an example of the latest Virgin Media Super Hub used on 100Mb broadband.

Enter http://192.168.0.1/ in your browser, login and select Advanced Settings which is in red at the bottom of the screen

Select Port Forwarding and follow the instruction above.

If the Server computer IP address is 192.168.1.2 the router configuration page will look like this.
