How you set up your PS4‘s Twitch or Ustream feed is up to you but here you can tweak under the hood with options to manage your accounts, change the quality depending on your internet speeds (it’s set to ‘high’ but ‘best’ might be better if your connection’s a bit flaky). You can also switch the PS4 camera and/or mic on and off depending on how sociable you feel, and turn comments on and off if you don’t like people appearing on the screen.
