Here’s how to stream your gameplay from any device
Here’s how to stream your gameplay from any device you might be playing on, whether it’s a PC, the Xbox One, a PlayStation 4, a Nintendo Switch, or even Android or iOS. A gaming device, an external microphone or gaming headset, a webcam, a fast internet connection (both upload and download), Twitch, YouTube Gaming, or Mixer accounts, and, obviously, at least one game title are the absolute minimum requirements for starting a stream, regardless of the platform you’re using to play.
Streaming with Twitch
Twitch is your best option if you want to reach a large audience (or be recognized and meet the love of your life). Be ready to install a few programs if you want to stream your video game sessions to the largest game streaming service in the world. In order to link and stream to your profile using the free broadcasting apps that Twitch suggests, you must first create a Twitch account and copy your stream key. Make sure not to distribute it.
Open Broadcast Software (OBS) – It’s a powerful app, despite not having the prettiest user interface. Once installed, you’ll be prompted to enter your stream key so that OBS can communicate with your Twitch channel and actually, you know, stream something. From there, you can select your source if you want OBS to stream from a specific window, your whole desktop, or whenever it detects a full-screen app(a game).
Streaming with Mixer
It used to be fairly easy to stream directly from a Windows gaming PC to Mixer, Microsofi’s alternative to Twitch. All you had to do was press Windows key + G to open the Windows Game Bar, then press Broadcast to begin. Since Microsofi removed that function from its Game Bar, streaming to Mixer is now quite similar to streaming to Twitch, which means that the quickest and simplest method to do that is to start using the previously mentioned software, Streamlabs’ OBS.
Streaming with YouTube
Hit the “Share” button on your DualShock controller, choose YouTube, and then input your login information to broadcast your gameplay to YouTube. Similar toTwitch, you will still need to purchase a PlayStation Eye camera if you want to add a face reaction camera to your YouTube stream. After logging in, make any necessary adjustments to the broadcast’s quality, title, and comments before pressing the “Start Broadcasting” button to start the stream.
