Note: in case your camera troubleshoots while live streaming, restart the application and continue the broadcast.
Sometimes, the rate at which Flash Media Live Encoder streams media to Flash Media Server exceeds the rate at which the network can handle the data. This scenario happens if network latency is high or network bandwidth is lowered for some reason. In this case you will need to select the Auto Adjust option:
1. To turn on automatic adjustment, select the Auto Adjust option in the Output panel. You can choose to degrade video quality or drop video frames.
2. This setting drops video frames from the RTMP buffer until data can stream without exceeding the RTMP buffer size. When Auto Adjust is enabled, Drop Frames is enabled by default.
3. This setting degrades the quality of the video by reducing the bit rate until data can be streamed without exceeding the specified RTMP buffer size.
