Some things to work on
This review will be based on FirstDropDanny’s past few VOD’s, since I haven’t caught them live. First off: The gameplay and gamactica engagement portions seem to be perfectly fine! However, when it comes to entertainment of the stream, there’s a lot of silence throughout the VOD’s. To me commentary is very important in a stream whether or not chat is moving at the time, so that took off quite a few points in my eyes. Chat interaction is mostly alright though from what I’ve seen. Something I’d suggest for the bettering of the viewing experience, besides adding a bit more commentary, would be a repositioning and cropping of the webcam. Right now it’s a little too high and Danny often dives lower while playing, therefore taking up even less of the cam real estate. My suggestion: Point the webcam angel lower and crop out empty space with alt + mouse drag on the edges. This way you are more of the focus and the camera as a whole takes less space, but you take a lot more space. Which seems only fitting for the star of the show. Another little quality related suggestion: Bitrate is too low for the resolution you stream at, according to video stats it’s at around 3k bitrate while the source resolution is 864p60fps. With something high moving like Apex Legends that ends up rather blocky during the action. So I’d either drop the source resolution if there’s a reason for the low bitrate, or up the bitrate to better fit the resolution you want to stream at!
