    The media team are looking for anyone who would be able to host Mkboards streams over the course of the World Cup and potentially beyond. You are not required to cast in order to be a stream host but that is also accepted. If so then a decent quality Microphone is required.

    Recommended Computer Requirements:
    CPU: No AMD, Intel i3-4XXX+ or i5/i7-2XXX+
    Clock Speed: Irrelevant if the CPU meets the above requirements
    Cores: 2 with hyper-threading or 4 with/without hyper-threading
    GPU: Irrelevant if the CPU meets the above requirements
    RAM: 8 GB
    UL: 5 Mbps
    DL: 15 Mbps
    Ping: Irrelevant. As long as it's stable, it's fine

    Recommended = Rabb.it account.

    These numbers aren't exact so if you think you might be able to do it then either comment below or msg me on Mkboards with your stats.

    I feel like disallowing integrated graphics cards is a bad idea.

    Intel's GPUs all support Quick Sync, and an AMD APU (provided the CPU half of it is powerful enough) can run a high quality stream also.

    With Quick Sync, a lot of stress on the CPU is put onto the GPU. If using an AMD CPU (where Quick Sync isn't available), you're going to be forced to use x264 as the encoder on OBS anyways.

    x264 relies on CPU power, not GPU power. An integrated graphics card vs. a dedicated one is completely irrelevant in that regard.

    What matters is CPU power; GPU hardly matters unless you're gaming on PC.

    What also matters is Internet Upload Speed and Ping (which you should add a requirement for). Although I never hear of download speed being terrible if the upload speed is good, if you have someone with 30 upload and 5 download, they should be allowed as well. Ethernet is a good recommendation, but don't make it mandatory since Wireless connections can be effective too.

    Edited my post a bit. I've been working with OBS for years, so I know the ins-and-outs for it. I'll PM you recommended specs.

    My computer far exceeds these requirements but I sadly won't be available for any of the matches.
