    Why am I getting: "This machine doesn't meet the min requirements for streaming."

    Requirements:

    Microsoft 64bit OS
    4GB RAM
    Quad Core CPU


    My Machine:

    Windows 7 Professional (x64) Service Pack 1 (build 7601)
    8GB RAM
    3.40Ghz AMD Phenom II X4 965

    Sooo...uh... why don't I meet the minimum requirements?

    Have you submitted a support ticket through Hi-Rez yet? I've heard the twitch functionality in Smite is a bit buggy too though.

    Oh no, It's not that important where I wanted to bother HiRez about it, I just wanted to fiddle it, see what's it like. Was thinking someone here might be able to give me a tip or two.

    While you do meet the minimums, those are not them... Here are the actual minimums.

    I think he's talking about for streaming to Twitch, not the game's requirements. Anyway, the in-game streamer is pretty awful and it's a beta feature. It's probably low on the priority list. The recommended programs from streaming to Twitch are OBS and Xsplit - OBS is free, Xsplit has a free version while the paid version has more features. I would recommend OBS as it's open-source, has lots of great plugins, and has a good community behind on it their forums.

    Oh really? meh, never mind then, Xsplit only ever gave me problems, and I don't wanna run a background program just to fiddle with something.

    Chaeote,

    They're several known issues with the in-game streaming tool. For now I would recommend using a 3rd party tool. Open Broadcaster Software is very good and free to use as some other users stated.

    PS: If your trying to get the Twitch rewards, you can still get them streaming via a 3rd party tool. Be sure to save your recordings on Twitch and contact hirezhelp once you reach each milestone.

    Ha ha.

    @Chaeote - OBS has minimal resource usage in and of itself, but when streaming the resource usage will be about the same as if you were using the in-game streaming tool. There's no reason not to try it out if you really want to stream.
