Pi 4 load for streams

Hi to evryone! To be true I don’t have "raspberries" for now, and I ask this question to understand should I buy it or not.
There is a python script that periodically checks the status of the twitch stream and (if the stream has become online) recording starts (via streamlink).
Has anyone done anything like this?
I wonder if the pi 4 can handle 2-3-4 simultaneous streams from a twitch at, say, 1080p 5-10kbit / s? Will there be frame drops / wild overheating / other troubles?
I understand that the question is very narrowly focused. But maybe someone did something like that.

All cursory views of videos / articles like "pi 4 as desktop" disappointed me - pi 4 even 720p video on youtube via chromium loads the processor by almost 100%. Is this still the case?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Thanks! But anyway, I bought Pi 4 for our project visualisation, of observing climate change statistics. It's for my kids

I have tried something similar. I was forced to admit defeat, the issue was not solved
