Old encoder software banned?

Starting December 1st: warning messages will appear on streams that have bad/incorrect encoder settings. Notifications will be going out to broadcasters via the website outlining what encoder software is supported as well as what encoder settings are considered correct.

If you are using old and outdated encoder software to broadcast, you will be affected by this. To ensure best possible results, use the latest version of OBS Studio. If you do not use the recommended encoder software and settings, then that is done so at your own risk.

If you use the Go LIVE Now broadcaster in the Android app or on the desktop browser, you will not be affected by these changes.
