That's a VERY low res camera (480).  You are never going to be happy with the video quality.  I don't think most devices nowadays even support less than 720.

Thank you!

I will check the bitrate and internet connection speeds tonight.

Thanks for the input on the video windows. I'll hook up an additional monitor to view the live stream simultaneously.

Any other feedback on vMix? Anything specific to consider when hooking up a new camera?

Thanks again!

Alright. The bitrate I had set for the stream last night was 6mbps. The internet connection speeds were 80mbps down and 11mbps up. Which I am guessing might be just a bit too low.

I'm checking with my team at church real quick. I thought we had ordered one capable of 1080p at least. They may have sent the wrong link.

Thanks,

Sounds like you have Cox Communications for internet; me too, similar speeds.  I can reliably stream 720P 25 FPS (YooToob) but 1080P is very hit/miss.  I suggest the internet provider be consulted and see if they'll bump the up speed to 20mbps.  I called Cox and they bumped my down speed to 150mpbs at no extra charge.  I guess nobody else with a residential account needs up speed?

Almost all internet services have upload speeds as an afterthought.
You should have 1.5 to 2 times the upload speed as your stream.
15 to 20 mbs is probably the minimum for a decent 1080 stream.
BTW a high quality 720 feed is better than a low quality 1080.
Some streamers, like the ATEM mini, have several different upload bit rates at each resolution.

I confirmed that we do have the 1080p version of that camera with an output resolution 1920x1080. I'll be looking into internet speeds and different capture cards at this point.

Open you browser and type in 'speed test'.  It's a free up and downlink checker.  Takes about a minute.
