Does live streaming affect power readings?

Has anyone looked into whether live streaming interferes with power readings in Zwift?

I’ve heard it can cause erratic readings and change the average power.

Is there a way to set up live streaming that doesn’t impact power readings?

A racer who has been asked to live stream but has heard it can impact power readings.

I have never heard of streaming impact power readings, there are many big names racing and streaming, and it does not seem to impact them.

I also stream using OBS and have not seen this happen.
