I've set everything up and can successfully stream, but instead of spending a few hours tinkering with values, I was hoping someone out there who also has a late 2011 macbook pro and streams could possibly advise me on the best settings (it's very choppy with standard levels as well as game lag)?

Or, if you feel it necessary, you could also chime in and let me know macbooks are awful for streaming and to not even try.

Programs I'm using:

flash media live encoder
soundflower
camtwist

thank you!
