Manjaro Gaming Group - Twitch, Youtube, and Mixer to showoff gaming on Manjaro

I was wondering if anyone ever thought of showing off Manjaro by showing how well games play on Linux via the big three streaming sites? It would be a great free marketing idea for the OS and fun too! Anyone interested in this?

I definitely would if I had the bandwidth, I tried streaming via twitch and it impacted too much on the online multiplayer game I was trying to stream (8Mbps upload bandwidth is not sufficient for gaming and streaming at the same time, the frame dropouts are horrid). I ended up instead recording games with nvidia shadowplay (Windows NVIDIA Geforce Experience feature) and uploading to my YouTube after the events. At present I have stopped that too for the moment because I don't like the current YouTube upload page, it fails on large uploads too easily.

Manjaro is pretty awesome for gaming though, I have to say I'm very impressed at the ease of it and level of performance.

Man, I just bought Unreal Tournament 2004 and Age of Empires recently. Some of my favourites.

Been enjoying it. Maybe I should Twitch. Am not a hardcore gamer. :thinking:
Anyways, Thanks for the idea @derekgraham :slight_smile:

Im not a hardcore gamer either, just figured we could show how well gaming runs on our machines by streaming them somewhere :slight_smile:

I would, but my hw needs updating before i try. I am running amd 8350 OC to 4.5GHz and nvidia gtx titan. I can play witcher 3 now, but i doubt i could do both. Looking to upgrade next year, so may consider it then.

I just did a test run the other day https://www.twitch.tv/videos/518632668 I think I need to set my channel design similar to yours @derekgraham, it looks sleek. I still need to figure out my settings to get better performance, but once I do count me in!

Those old AMD chips actually handle streaming pretty well, the single threaded performance stinks but you still have 8 of them. I used to stream on a 6300 and a gtx660 so you should be fine!
