Nowadays, video games are not meant to be played – or viewed – alone. Fortunately, broadcasting your games to Twitch from a computer is just as simple as streaming from a phone. Here’s how to broadcast on Twitch with a PC.

Step 1. Check Your Internet Connection and PC

To broadcast on Twitch from a PC, you’ll first need to make sure your internet connection and PC can support your broadcasting.

Step 2. Download Streamlabs OBS

Streamlabs OBS allows you to adjust your settings to get the best possible quality stream from your PC, and includes many other convenient setting options. To get started, head over to Streamlabs.com and download the free installer.

Step 3. Launch Streamlabs OBS and Adjust Settings

Once you launch Streamlabs OBS, if it is your first time using the program, it will prompt you to login to your Twitch account to sync Streamlabs to Twitch.
After logging in, launch the game that you want to broadcast, then select the “+” next to “Sources.” Then, choose”Window Capture” from the list of options, and name your source. Next click “Add New Source.”
In the “Window” option, select your game from the list of available windows. Hit “Done,” and you are ready to stream!

If you’d like, you can add extras like a webcam, overlays, and more via the same “+” method.

Step 4. Start Broadcasting!

After adjusting the settings, you are all set to start broadcasting. Simply hit the “Go Live” option in the bottom right of Streamlabs OBS, edit your stream info, and click “Done.” Then, you will be broadcasting live directly to Twitch.
