How Do I Improve My Broadcast Quality In Chrome?

By default, Google Chrome uses its own Flash software which will degrade the quality of your broadcast stream (and even worse in HD). This fix will allow you to use the Adobe Flash software on Chrome and improve your broadcast quality.

 Why should I fix it?

We want to make sure you have the best quality stream. Here is an example of Abbey broadcasting with Chrome’s Flash software. You can see pixelation from within the broadcast.


Below, Abbey has disabled Chrome’s Flash software and is now using the Adobe Flash software. The stream is now very clear and crisp.
