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: Signing In
When launching XSplit Broadcaster for the first time, you'll be asked to Sign In or Sign Up for an XSplit account to use the app. Click the Sign In button if you've already created an account. And if you haven't signed up yet, go here to register an XSplit account with your email.
Once you've clicked sign in, the app will use your browser to authenticate your XSplit account so make sure that it is logged in on our browser site.
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, adding a camera device, overlays, or Twitch widgets. You can learn more about adding Sources by clicking here.
Step 3: Setting Up Your Twitch Broadcast
After your sources are ready, let’s now set up your Twitch broadcast output. Go to the Broadcast menu, and select Set up a new output, then click Twitch. This will take you to a wizard that will easily link and authenticate your Twitch channel for streaming.
Note: All Twitch streamers are required to enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for your Twitch accounts before you can broadcast.

Step 4: Starting Your Twitch Output
You’re now ready to start a stream. Go to the Broadcast menu again and select your created Twitch output.
Alternatively, you can also start your stream by clicking on the Stream button at the top bar section of Broadcaster.
A red status bar should appear at the top of the XSplit Broadcaster application window showing that you’re live stream is running.
