If you're looking to achieve the best quality in your streams, buying a good webcam will not avail it without a good internet connection. That's why we advice everyone to run a speed test before start streaming to check if your connection meets the minimum requirements. Depending on your geographic location, you can use one of these links:
In case your internet doesn't pass the speed test, please contact your internet service provider.
On the technical side, you must have at least Windows 10 OS, and processors Intel Core i5 or AMD Ryzen, with 8 GB of RAM and SSD disc, or better.
The other key factor to achieve the highest quality is streaming with OBS. Make sure that it's configured according to our personal setup to ensure the desired outcome: https://support.xhamsterlive.com/hc/en-us/articles/4410727142545-How-to-set-up-OBS
If you're streaming from a mobile device instead of a computer, note that not all mobile devices are supported on our site due to the mobile broadcasting technology we're using. You won't be able to stream using Honor, ZTE, or Huawei smartphones. Overall, we can't recommend any Chinese phones because of technological incompatibility, but here's our list of recommended devices for mobile broadcasting: Samsung Galaxy S8+, S9, S9+, S10, S10+, iPhone 7 and above, Google Pixel 2, Sony Xperia, and tablets.
