And once the process is complete , you will have your own channel and you will only have to create content. But it's important that you read the Twitch community guidelines first and learn about the rule violations.

Now we're going to determine which devices we want to use to stream live streams on Twitch after creating them. Since it is good that you know that from a PC, regardless of the operating system, it is more difficult to broadcast than from a PS4. Since there is no need to include software, as is the case with a PC, you need to use the OBS transmission free .

And among them you have to find and choose Transmission tool. This action will show you a page where you will find different applications.

In our case we will go to Search OBS and click on the Download option and select the version needed for your PC, for Windows, Linux or Mac. Once the download is complete, it is important that you do some configurations. This will allow your broadcasts to be optimal.



And you should focus on three key points, which are il bit rate audio, the video bit rate and the encoder. In the Output to OBS option and here you will set the video bit rate to 2500 OR 3500. If you want to output in high resolution, now the audio bit rate must be 128.

Now in order to broadcast you need to find and enter the broadcast key, to do so, log into Twitch and while on the tab, click in the top right corner to select Channel from the menu. Now you will be taken to a page where your password will be displayed, which you need to copy. Once this process is done, you can configure the microphone and audio and volume options.

You can now open the game you want to stream and in the Sources menu click the plus sign + so that a list of items appears. Now for catch the game, click the Screenshot option. But if you just want to capture the game use the Game Capture option. And now you just have to click on Start Streaming.
