My Periscope streams are ending prematurely. What is the reason for that?
Your Periscope streams may be ending prematurely because Periscope is forcefully terminating the connection to end the stream. This may be due to your recording/file not meeting the specs to stream or exceeds the maximum allowed bitrate.
The supported specifications for streaming to Periscope are as followed:
Video Bitrate & Codec: 2500 kbps (recommended), 4000 kbps (max), H.264
Audio Bitrate & Codec: 128 kbps AAC-LC
Framerate: 30 fps
Resolution: 1280 x 720
- One potential workaround to get your recordings to stream properly is to change the encoding profile of the stream to meet spec. You can contact a SnapStream Support Engineer for assistance on how to do this.
- Another workaround would be to transcode the file/recording to a resolution suitable for Periscope.
