Stream World of Warcraft with

Hello everyone, I’m going to take a break from my usual Profession and Achievement guides, and talk about streaming live games on This guide is not for people who are not good at using computers, or those who are afraid of getting their hands dirty with some brief coding. You also need to have a fairly decent computer and internet connection in order for this to work. If you are using a wimpy acer computer you might as well close this guide right now. Without any further ado, let us begin.


Streaming games on means that other people from around the world can visit a url (which you will set up) and watch you play World of Warcraft, or any other game for that matter, live. This technique is incredibly lucrative if you wish to broadcast PvP matches, provide live commentaries on dungeons and raids, or just to show off your skills to your friends. 

Step 1Create a account. Choose your account name carefully, as it will part of the url that you use to spread your videos.
Catgirlthunderbroadofcantebury: A bad name
AbhorsenJayWoWStream: A good name

Step 2Get some software. Download and install Adobe Flash Media Encoder 2.5. Do NOT use 3.x as it is significantly slower (sometimes more than 400%) than FME 2.5. Once you are done installing, do not run FME, instead, download and install VHScrCap.

Step 3Now it is time to set up VHScrCap. Run:

Start Menu\Hmelyoff\VHScrCap\Config.exe
Select “Create new one”. Click settings, change your frame rate to 30, and ensure that only Align VideoShow Mouse, and Show Clicks are checked off. Click theCapture tab, do not click any boxes. Click select, and drag the cursor to your World of Warcraft window. You will probably see a red outline.

Step 4Create a batch file for FME. Create a new folder, I like to have mine in the C drive, and call it whatever you like. For instance:
Create c:\fme
Once this is done, create a new text document in notepad, and insert the following:
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Flash Media Encoder 2.5\FMEcmd.exe” c:\fme\justin.xml
Save this in your FME folder as justin.bat. If the path to FMEcmd.exe is incorrect, change the document as needed.

Step 5Now we need to get the initial XML. Run Flash Media Encoder 2.5 and select the sound capture device that you wish to use, for instance, select Stereo Mix. Select “Save Profile” and save your xml document wherever you like. Open up that file and locate the following line:
Line In (Realtek High Definitio
It should be noted that the name of the audio device will most likely be different based on what you have selected. Copy and paste this line into a new document and save it. You may now close the xml profile as well as the FME graphic interface.

Step 6Create a new notepad file in your original FME folder, call it justin.xml and fill it with the following text:

Edit your Width and Height, and make sure to cut/paste in the audio device you had saved in the last step. Next, you need to find and insert your stream ID. To find this, log in to JTV and then click here. Go down to “other”, and select Stream Key: Show. Keep this safe, this is essentially your password. Go down to save options and select UNICODE. This is critical, your program will not run if you do not save it in Unicode. If later, when you run your justin.bat, the window flashes open for half a second and closes, it is because you did not save this in Unicode.

Step 7It’s time to set your bitrate, open up your justin.xml file and locate the following line
1000 kbps is enough for a stream of decent quality, however, if your internet connection upload speed can accommodate it, change the number to 1500 or higher. Keep in mind that whatever datarate you set, your viewers will need a data stream rate to match it.

Step 8To start streaming, simply run the justin.bat file and it should pop up a black window that displays some miscellaneous stats. 

EXTRA INFO (from Exact way to stream with FME to JTV - READ HERE - Multiboxing in World of Warcraft and Beyond!)

Lindline added an awesome note to automatically make FME be "high" in its CPU priority, increasing your FPS output of streaming.

Modify your FME.bat to include this if you have a hyperthread quad-core CPU such as the i7.

CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Flash Media Encoder 2.5"
start /affinity 80 /high FMEcmd.exe /p c:\fme\console.xml

Modify your FME.bat to include this if you have an quad-core CPU.

CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Flash Media Encoder 2.5"
start /affinity 8 /high FMEcmd.exe /p c:\fme\console.xml

Modify your FME.bat to include this if you have an dual core CPU.

CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Flash Media Encoder 2.5"
start /affinity 2 /high FMEcmd.exe /p c:\fme\console.xml

Modify your FME.bat to include this if you have any random CPU

CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Flash Media Encoder 2.5"
start /high FMEcmd.exe /p c:\fme\console.xml

If you don't want to worry about showing your stream ID when you launch the .bat file, create another batch file. You will run this file whenever you want to start streaming. Inside of it, type this

start /min justin.bat (or whatever your batch file is called)
