hello and SOS!
i recently started camming on chaturbate from my chromebook. All was well (albeit basic) until i got a lovense lush. I learned that to make the lush tip controlled, i need to run the lovense stream software and an OBS, and the OBS won't work with my limited chromebook (to my understanding.) So i dug out an older windows gateway laptop and was able to successfully install all the software i needed there. Everything looks like it's running perfectly until i actually start the stream. Then for me it shows as extremely laggy, and my viewers say they either get a black screen with the lovense overlay, or the lovense overlay with a frozen or extremely laggy cam. (viewers have sent me videos of their screen showing my audio and video feed being nearly three minutes behind from when they tipped. I feel like i can't even stream now, it's so bad!
So here's my question? What option sounds best?
- the ideal solution is i figure out a way to run obs on my chromebook. i seem to be able to get the lovense taskbar to pop up but can't do any type of overlay without OBS. things like my lovense menu, sounds, tip animations, and games send me to an OBS error message when i try to apply them through the lovense software. i can only set my prices for vibrations and it wont let me get through anything else. if anyone has advice with how to make that work, you get a big wet kiss because the gateway runs really slow. can i ditch the old gateway computer and go back to trying the chromebook somehow?
- should i just accept that i can't use any visual aids without a better computer and try running only the lovense software on my chromebook? it does pull up the taskbar but i'm unsure if my viewers are able to use it. i could list menu options through a bot in chaturbate but i want to be sure that viewers will get what they tipped for. the taskbar does allow a send test tip option so my worst case scenario is to try running the losense software on my chromebook and having people tip off menu, and i manually type it in as a test tip, but that would be miserable to do everytime, especially, with a busy room.
- is it an issue with the software on the gateway computer? is there something i can do either in obs or in chaturbate that will make the feedback run smoother? i'm not able to connect to my internet with a cable, i have to use wifi, which i suspect isn't helping in combination with the old gateway computer. and my cam quality is already pretty low so i don't want to lower it anymore and pixelize myself.
i'm BEGGING the universe to send me a magical little tech wizard who can help save the day here. this has given me such an anxiety about my streams and is quickly starting to effect my income. i'm considering not even using the lovense because i don't want to mislead my viewers if i can't get it working right. I feel terrible when someone sends me hundreds of tokens and all they get is a glitchy laggy moan three minutes later or a black screen. PLEASE let someone out there have the answers.
