Setting up your Broadcast Outputs

With your game and other sources added, you’re ready to set up your Broadcast outputs. First, go to Broadcast then Set up a new Output. Just select the streaming service you’ll be using and a setup wizard will be launched to help you create your Broadcast output. This wizard will optimize your stream settings based on your hardware and internet connection.

Here are links on setting up Broadcast outputs for popular streaming services:

If you don’t see your preferred Streaming Platform, click on Find more outputs. You’ll be directed to the Plugin Store where you can select and install more broadcast plugins.

Setting up a Custom RTMP Output

If the Broadcasting Output you’re looking for isn’t available in the Plugin Store you can set up a Custom RTMP Output to you preferred streaming Platform. This will require you to have a RTMP URL and Stream Name for your Broadcast. Once you have set your RTMP Details you can now set your preferred encoding settings.

You can learn more about setting up Custom RTMP here.

Starting your Livestream

To go Live, go back to the Broadcast Menu and click on your output. It will open up a tab for you to input your Broadcast Details before you go Live. During your livestream you will see your streaming stats written in red on the Title Bar. If you notice your stream dropping frames, you can lower your Bitrate.
