Hope I'm in the right spot for help.
I'm seeing some pixilation/buffer flickers on my livestream. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this or knows if there is a solution. A good example shows up at 1:25.
I'm outputting 720p30 4mbps apple h.264 bitrate 4128K
I've lowered to 480p to see if that would work, but it did not.

Any number of potential causes from File Playback, Internet Bandwidth, B Frames, the encoder selection and a few other possibilities.
Please make sure you're on Wirecast 14.3.3
First playback your source file in Wirecast without streaming and see how it looks like in the Live window. That will make sure it's not a playback issue.
If it's good in Live window try doing a local recording using the same settings as you would stream with. That eliminates internet and CDN/Server as possible causes.
If you're using something other than our presets it might be an issue with your custom encoder settings.
