XSplit has always been the gateway for streaming games and major live production events on Twitch. Here’s our guide on how to start streaming to one of the most popular platforms online.
Step 1: Authenticate Your Twitch Account
When launching XSplit Broadcaster for the first time, click the Twitch logo on the log-in window and authenticate your Twitch account.
You will be prompted to connect Twitch to an XSplit account. You can choose between a new user, which will register a new XSplit account, or an existing XSplit user which will ask you to login to an existing account.
Step 2: Setting Up Your Presentation
Now, you’ll be brought to the main XSplit Broadcaster window. Here, you can add sources, which are anything that you want to present in your stream or recording such as your game, overlays or Twitch widgets. You can learn more about adding Sources by clicking here.
Step 3: Add a Twitch Output
Once your sources are set, let’s now setup your Twitch broadcast. Go to the Broadcast menu and select Twitch to configure it. This will take you to a wizard that will setup your channel for streaming.
Step 4: Start Your Twitch Output
Once you’re set, you’re now ready to start a stream. Go on the Broadcast menu and select your created Twitch output. A red status bar should appear at the top of the XSplit Broadcaster application window showing that you’re live.
