DRACULA: ORIGIN - How to Get Started with Live-streaming Your Video Game Sessions

Video games have become more popular than ever, and it’s no surprise that people want to share their gameplays with their friends or even to a bigger crowd. Because of this, live-streamers have emerged and paved for themselves not only a big audience but even their own industry. But doing this, the biggest challenge is where does steam save screenshots. Just like in sports where you watch your favorite athletes play their respective games, multiplayer video-gaming also has its own competitive market called eSports.

Whether you play competitively and want to get into eSports, or you simply want to share your live gameplay to an audience, the following information will help you get started on your live-streaming journey.

So where do people stream?

There are a lot of platforms where fans can watch streams in, and the following are some of the biggest names in the market:

Twitch

You may have already heard of the name Twitch, and rightly so since it is currently the leading platform in the market. Twitch has recently become part of Amazon, and it still has the biggest number of streamers and spectators around the world. Twitch allows viewers to support their favorite streamers monetarily, and the active community has made it a gamer favorite.

Mixer

Mixer is a streaming platform launched by Microsoft that is not as big as Twitch but is constantly gaining traction, especially since the popular streamer Ninja left Twitch to join Mixer. It has features similar to Twitch; Mixer also allows viewers to support streamers monetarily. The edge here is that Microsoft consoles and Windows computers come integrated with Mixer.

YouTube

A classic name in the video industry, YouTube has its own streaming service called YouTube Gaming. It’s not as big as Twitch and Mixer; however, streamers even from other platforms upload their finished streams onto YouTube for fans to watch; although, these videos are mostly edits of the live video game streams.

Facebook

Even the social media platform Facebook has its own gaming channel, but because it’s still small and growing, there aren’t as many streamers there as there are on the other streaming platforms.

Tools you need for live-streaming

Now that you’ve looked into the different streaming platforms, you can now get started on your stream (gaming platform) setup.

First and foremost, you want to get the basics down. You need to have a stable internet connection, and you also want to make sure that you have a good environment and quality video and audio sources. Get yourself a quiet room, a good camera and a clear microphone for a quality stream.

The more complicated part is that you might need an encoder to capture your gameplay from your selected gaming console to the internet. Some consoles have built-in streaming capabilities, like the PlayStation and the Xbox, but if you’re playing on a computer, you might need to get yourself an encoder.

An encoder takes your video signal and processes it so that it’s web-friendly for online viewing. There are software encoders you can download for your computer like the very popular OBS, and there are also external hardware ones. Which one you’re going to use is up to your computer’s processing power, as streaming using software encoders is very CPU-heavy. If your computer isn’t powerful enough, you’re better off getting a hardware encoder.

Conclusion

Live-streaming is a complicated topic, and getting started requires a lot of setup and preparation. While the situation can vary per console, the above information is meant to give you a general idea of everything you need to get started on live-streaming.
