In the recent past, there was only one dominant way to handle a video game. One sat and played. Or maybe there is an old buddy buddy to help you survive longer and complete missions faster. However, it was still quite far from what could be called the "spectacular game." Reportedly, over the years, the script has changed significantly, polite gamers on YouTube, the racing popularity of eSports and, of course, Twitch is one of the good video streaming services that has received wide recognition in no time. Running a stream and testifying that someone is playing a few miles away is now a fully recognized way to enjoy the game.

Although it sounds funny, sometimes it can be very sad, but in some regions of the world you may encounter a quick blocking of access to the site content. A quick fix to these problems may be to route your connection through the VPN client. You can try and install free VPN on your device, Despite the limitations, a free VPN will help you to tunnel traffic through a remote server, as VPN helps to access the site from another IP. Such a fake location not only allows access to blocked content, but also provides complete anonymity. If this works for you, consider getting a premium subscription to get more bandwidth and better speeds.

Basic requirements

First you need a strong PC with a well-defined graphics card that will allow you to play streaming games without any delay. This is important because you will work as well as download video and audio at the same time. Twitch often resorts to using dual PC settings to help achieve this when one PC is used for streaming and the other for gaming. Nevertheless, it requires a complex passage and is never recommended for those who are just starting. Let's start by considering the PC requirements:

  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4670 or AMD equivalent
  • Ram: 8 GB
  • Graphics: DirectX 10 compatible. For modern games Direct X 11 and 12

If you have a high-end PC set up, Twitch services will work better. Besides PC requirements, another important thing is your internet connection. According to official Twitch rules for broadcasting, it is required to reach 4500–6000 kbps to achieve 1080p at 60 frames per second, and also 3500–5000 kbps for 1080p at 30 frames per second.

Introduction to OBS Studio

Before you start broadcasting with Twitch, you will need two more things:

  • Desktop software that can record and stream video from your PC
  • Official Twitch account.

Let's start with the software part first. Although the website is filled with several reviews related to the OBS studio (Open Broadcaster Software), it appears to be one program that is not only free, but relatively easy to set up. In addition, it also functions to integrate with Twitch without any hassle.

After you have downloaded and successfully installed OBS Studio, the client will start automatically, after which you will be greeted by a window with a mailbox screen (empty) and another options screen right below. Now you will need to customize the scene and source for the broadcast. Most Twitch threads are not only a game screencast, but also combine a number of sources in the form of picture in picture, screen overlay, watermarks, and more. Four major such sources include:

  • Webcam
  • A game
  • Audio player

Customize game flow

  • Before setting up the game flow, you will need to rename the screen by right-clicking the scene that is in the left pane along the bottom of the OBS window. Now you can add game tape. Start the game and, when it starts, press Alt & Tab to return to the OBS window. In case you own multiple monitors; You may have OBS studio running on an additional monitor during installation.
  • Soon you will need to "Add a new source." Click the “+” sign right along the Sources panel, and then go to “Capture Game” from the menu. A new window will open, and when you click OK, a new third window will open.
  • Once you add a game from the properties window, select the drop-down menu that is next to the mode, and then select Capture. Then select another drop-down menu to the right of the game executable file, which will be listed. there, as it already works, after which there will be a preview appearing and surrounded by a thin red line.

Webcam feed setting

For streamers using Twitch, using a webcam is a fairly standard thing. Here's how to set it up correctly:

  • Click the “+” sign in the Sources field.
  • Select the “Video Capture” device from the context and click OK to go to the properties.

OBS Studio automatically selects a webcam. You can try to adjust the corresponding parameters, but as long as your webcam takes the first place in the list, everything should work almost normally. Just remember to set the angle of the webcam and the lighting in the room.

Microphone setup

OBS continues to add the default microphone. However, if you have an additional microphone, you will need to specify which one you want to choose as the output source. You can mix your audio scores right from your dashboard.

  • Go to the "Mixer"
  • Select Mic / Aux Record
  • Click "Settings" in the far right corner to open the properties window in which you need to select a microphone.

Streaming on Twitch

  • Twitch setup is as simple as ever. All you need to do is create a user account. Then select your username and go to the “Toolbar”. Next, click "Settings", and in the next window you will see the option "Stream key". Click to select the same, and then click "Show Key". Make a copy of the code to the clipboard.
  • Now open OBS and click “Settings” to select “Stream”. Select "Twitch" from the list of streaming services. You may have to select a server manually if the system does not provide you with a pre-selected one. Then you need to copy the streaming key in the “Stream Key” field and click “Apply” and then “OK” to complete the process.
  • Then go to the Twitch control panel and click Live. Then enter the name of the stream and the name of the game, and then click “Update Information” to get started.
