    Does streaming to a site (like BlogTV, YouTube, or Twitch) in HD is limited to your internet speed (obvious), RAM, and/or Processor? My Macbook Air's specs is mid-2012 256GB/ 4GB/ Core i5/ 1.8Ghz (Basically the $1400 one). Is this enough to stream in full 720p/1080p even if my connection is good enough?

    -Thanks

    The only limit will be the internet speed and CPU (if the stream uses Flash or Silverlight (which is often less CPU intensive than Flash), but you will be more than okay to stream 720p and 1080p with your computational hardware.
