To go live to your preferred site, you will need to first set it up as an output on XSplit Broadcaster.

For platforms like Twitch, Facebook Live, Mixer and YouTube Live, it’s as easy as logging in.
Here’s how to set them up using XSplit Broadcaster.

Twitch

Twitch is a live streaming video platform primarily focuses on video game live streaming, including broadcasts of eSports competitions, creative content, "in real life" streams, music broadcasts and personal streams from the top gaming personalities.

Facebook Live

Reach new audiences in new ways. People love watching video, which is why we’ve built a dedicated place to watch this engaging content on Facebook. While your current fans will be able to keep up here and in News Feed, the experience will help new followers discover you too.

YouTube Live

The world’s largest online video sharing site now offers live broadcasting for YouTubers in good standing.

Mixer

Mixer is a next-generation live streaming platform for gamers that offers viewers real-time influence and participation in live game streams and engage with the content directly. Features can be integrated into games to allow users to affect gameplay or vote on elements using buttons displayed alongside the stream.
