There are many ways to improve the quality of your webcam broadcast.

To improve your quality even more you can use different kinds of stand alone apps such as
Flash Media Live Encoder
Those different application provides you with more quality tweaking features. There are several tutorials on those application on their respective sites.
At last just some basic recomendations. Lowering the quality setting or video bitrate will improve video smoothness. If your picture quality is poor, you may consider investing in a higher quality camera. Also try adjusting your lighting.
