YouTube and Twitch are great video sharing platforms that can be utilized for self-promotion. You can utilize them in brand promotion with minimal investment, whether you are doing podcasts or stream live content. Quick start involves downloading OBS and associating your platform credentials. The software provides a scene called streaming, and it will integrate both your camera and microphone. You can have chatroom for your stream, and some folks will engage with their viewers in real time. Once you are comfortable with your basic setting, explore the capability of software to implement different scenes, record and organize your streaming sessions.
- To start streaming, you first have to sign up and create an account on Twitch or Youtube.
- You will need a device and/or software in order to capture your screen, such as OBS so viewers can watch you play.
- You also will want to get a microphone and a good audio mixer so that you can communicate with your chat during your stream.
“First, streaming means sending some input source (or sources) from your machine to the Internet for people to watch live.”
