    Facebook probably doesn't have a local node so you're streaming to the UK more than likely.

    Why not Twitch or YouTube?

    Youtube would be a better choice because if you arent a partner on twitch or have enough viewers, watching on twitch for people with slow lines will only be able to watch the stream in source. Can't select a quality that will work with your line so it will chase viewers away.

    youtube allows for quality selection either way

    Thant video looks fine for the resolution, it's only 720P @30FPS after all.

    I sometimes watch BF1 live streams, it looks crap if it's not 1080P @ 60fps
