The recommended Internet Bandwidth requirements:

1. For broadcasting live on myvideobroadcaster using superstream

 * 500kbit constant upstream for medium quality broadcast

 * 1mbit constant upstream for high quality broadcast

 2. For viewing the live broadcast

 * 500kbit/1mbit constant downstream for viewing live broadcast

3. For making/sending a video email

 * 250kbit constant upstream

 4. For making myvideochannel

 * 1mbit constant downstream for High Quality videos playing

 Please note that these values apply when user is connected to the USA server.

So if you do a bandwidth test from South Africa, user must check his internet upstream and downstream in connection to an USA server for accurate data.

Bellow we will detail how to check bandwidth in connection to USA server.

Go to website and click on the setings button:

1. Click here to open the speed test settings

The settings panel will open and you will need to select a server located in USA - in the image we have selected the New York server:

3. Click here to save the settings

Now you will need to click on Begin Test button to start testing your internet speed.

When you move your mouse over the Begin Test button, the server we just selected will be listed:

This way you can make sure that you are testing the internet speed to the right server.

When the speed test is over you will view the results:

1. Here you can view your download speed

2. Here you can view your upload speed

3. Ping ( a good ping is below 50ms) the best results will have a ping at 25ms or lower. )

Note: is recommended to close any programs that you have running which may be connecting to the internet
