Am running a test live now and signal is RED. What’s going on?September 17, 2020 at 6:43 am #90010
The red light means that Wirecast is unable to broadcast (upload) at the required rate due to insufficient bandwidth. You can either upgrade your connection or reduce the bitrate to sort out the problem.
You can test your connection against our speed tester here
Also you can enable QoS metrics for your account, these may help you diagnose issues with your broadcast and network, especially if fluctuating.

This has been a problem before that an agent on the chat was able to resolve. Not sure why your agent now online seems to be not so capable of anything.
1. I have a 89mbps on average upload at 2 PING ms
2. During my last experience I was told the my stream was touted to North America and to resolve the issue she had all my stream routed to Singapore. An this fixed the issue.
I am 100% sure that this is not an internet connection problem on my end.
Can you please find a solution as we have a big show coming this October 3 with 1000 audience for 3 hours.
I hope you can fully assist us on this matter.

I’m finding that you are still set up to ingest in Singapore, that has not changed
Also one of your channels is enabled for adaptive bitrate, please note the restrictions and shortcomings of that or just broadcast on a different channel and see if better.
I’d advise you take the time to enable QoS, it has greatly helped customers with similar issues. Unfortunately there’s more to networking than just raw speed, and each case is different.
Need to note here that we do not have, and never had throughput or congestion issues at the infrastructure level. Ingest servers sit on multiple redundant T1 lines and we constantly run test broadcasts at up to 80mbps against ordinary internet connections.September 17, 2020 at 12:11 pm #90045
How do I enable my QOS?September 17, 2020 at 2:55 pm #90077
