Twitch Output Update for XSplit Broadcaster

The XSplit TeamThe XSplit TeamFebruary 23, 20221 min read

As some of you may be aware, Twitch is having a phased shutdown of its old v5 API, as detailed here. A result of this was difficulty connecting to Twitch for any streaming software, XSplit Broadcaster included. We have taken steps to update our Twitch plugin which should be in effect now.

When you first open XSplit Broadcaster you will be prompted to update your Twitch plugin, once you have completed this everything should be applied and run as normal. Any older versions of the plugin will not be able to connect and you will need to use the workaround solution of a custom RTMP connection. However, once you have followed the steps in the update prompt you shouldn’t need to do this.

There will be some ongoing issues due to this change which we’ll be updating and issuing fixes as soon as possible.

  • Sources that use Twitch such as the chat plugin or alerts plugin may experience issues.
  • Some in-game HUD and Game Bar functionalities may also be affected.

Both of these issues should be resolved in the coming days via an additional application update.

If you still experience login issues after the Twitch output plugin has updated, please uncheck the “confirm ingest server” setting in the stream channel settings in XSplit Broadcaster and try again.

If you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to drop a message to our customer support team who are available 24/7.
