Issues with LiveStream & Other Alternative Tools

One viewer of the episode 71 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts was having issues with LiveStream. Alternative tools to LiveStream were also discussed.

The exact question was:

Also having an issue trying to live stream. I have excellent upload speeds at 26.68 Mbps. Compressed the raw file to .wmv format and is only 10.6 meg in size. Saved the file as 480p quality in Format factory. I shut down all unnecessary programs in Start UP under msconfig. I have NOT tried disabling my Windows Firewall as I have never had to before because I don't like the security risk by doing that. When the stream is going on Wirecast it shows me only using 6-8% of my total available RAM and 32% of my CPU. The streams end up very choppy and delayed. This has never happened before and was wondering if you had any ideas on how I can overcome this issue. Thanks…
