    How much RAM do you have, exactly what model of Radeon is the APU chipset based on? I don't think it's too awful to stream from by what I'm seeing here. What problems are you running into? Are you using a wired or wireless connection?

    Depends on what streaming service you're using and what your bandwidth can handle.

    These are the settings we usually use for RTMP streaming.

    Code:
    Encoding
    Video Encoding
    Encoder: x264
    Use CBR: Checked
    Enabled CBR Padding: Checked
    Max Bitrate: 3000kb/s
    
    Audio Encoding
    Codec: AAC
    Format: 48kHz
    Bitrate: 192
    
    Broadcast Settings
    Mode: Live Stream
    Streaming Service: Custom
    FMS URL: (Your RTMP URL goes here)
    Play Path: Leave Empty
    
    Video
    Resolution Downscale: 1.50 (1280x720)
    Filter: Bicubic sharper
    FPS: 30
    Disable Aero: Unchecked
    
    Audio
    Desktop Audio Device: Here's it's recommended to use a device other than your Default that isn't plugged in and then use that same device in VLC Media Player or any other application that you're using to play videos. The reason for this is due to the fact that if you select your Default, everybody in the stream will be able to hear things like your GMod, Steam Message Notifications, and other OS Sounds, instead of just the video.
    
    Advanced
    Use Multithreaded Optimizations: Checked
    Scene Buffering Time (milliseconds): 3500
    
    If you can't connect to the RTMP Server using OBS, then either your IP changed or RTMP DDoS Mitigation is enabled. Either way, you'll need to talk to me about it before it'll connect again.

    Ok, that's definitely fast enough. I'm honestly perplexed.
