So I know of a handful of people here follow me on Twitch and pop in from time to time so I thought it would be appropriate to let everyone know that I’m in the process of moving full time from Twitch over to Mixer (formerly known as beam.pro) although I may still stream from Twitch from time to time but Mixer will be my new preferred streaming platform.
So some of yall maybe wondering why I’m making a switch from Twitch to Mixer when I already have a community built on Twitch (for the most part at least I have 730+ followers) and the reasons are Mixer has what they call FTL (faster than light) Streaming Protocol which lets you stream with nearly no delay which is something I latched on and liked the idea immediately… but that alone isn’t what made me switch I have always streamed to beam/mixer every great once in a while and the last stream I did before making the move I realized just how great the platform is… When streaming to Twitch I max out my computers CPU (I have a potato computer) but when streaming to Mixer I use half of my CPU which means I can stream and play so much more than just Minecraft and it makes a overall more enjoyable experience for me that I’m not having to play a choppy Minecraft that’s getting like 5 FPS… in return over on Mixer I have noticed my streams look higher in quality which is more enjoyable for those stopping by to watch and in return has pushed me away from Twitch.
With that being said I just hit 100 followers over on Mixer and I am in the process of scheduling a 12 hour+ stream for hitting 100 followers so that’ll be coming soon.

My “normal” stream schedule is usually everyday starting somewhere between Midnight and 2 AM CST but I do a lot of random streams throughout the day.
