After being on Youtube for years I decided that I wanted to create game-related content myself as well and thus FelixInfintum was born in September of 2014.
In April of 2016 I met Sips in Rust, played some of it with him and made some complication videos about the footage he recorded. This sparked my subcount to go to 40 and suddenly I got the urge to really start making videos myself. Back in the day streaming became more and more popular and I began streaming on my laptop in November 2016.
From the start I decided that I wanted to get a good audio setup as audio is one of the most important in video content. Streaming with a two screen setup I grew and started streaming regularly since January 2017. I got the Streamdeck in May 2017 which increased my control during streaming. In August of 2017 I decided to use a webcam, as a webcam or a camera in general adds a piece of personality in comparison to just listening to a voice. During that time I also switched from my laptop to my desktop which added a big improvement in quality.
Since February 2018 I have a Camlink which gives far better video quality than the webcam I used before that. It also makes doing IRL and Creative streams far easier.

I use OBS to stream to Twitch whereby the desktop plays the game and well as encodes the stream to Twitch. I also have an option to use the NDI protocol to stream with 2 pc’s, the desktop will play the game and the laptop will encode the stream and send it to Twitch.
I stream on 1080p 60fps with a bitrate of 6000 kbps, encoding on the x264 protocol. This ensures a high quality stream that can be easily edited and uploaded to Youtube without loss of quality.
