Works great. Looks fantastic and doesn't give a performance hit even in resource intensive games

There doesn't seem to be a games-only restriction atm so you can just stream whatever I guess, for now.

yeah I was getting in the order of 2-5 seconds when I was testing it out.


Anyone "serious" about streaming is going to stick to using OBS so they can have a webcam and use chroma key with their greenscreen (I'm sure webcam is soon but chroma key might not be) but this is pretty neat I guess.

so there's no webcam support yet? no scarecams as a five nights at freddy jumps at the screen? what about audio? can someone at least scream into a microphone? i just need to hear someone scream.

yeah you can scream into a mic. I imagine their feedback is flooded with 'y u no webcum?' right now tho so expect it soon.



I sure wish 'y u no hl3' would work that well.

twitch is run by volunteer moderators who have ties to popular streamers and regularly abuse their powers

Made my game lag when people started watching, way more than using game capture in OBS ever did.

yeah but that just means you gotta make friends with a corrupt admin/staff to fully utilize twitch. They're literally everywhere so it's not even hard.

Make shitposts an impossibility in your mind.



i knew a guy who went on to work at twitch and according to him a lot of their infrastructure is really shoddy because they had to expand a whole bunch in a short amount of time.

steam broadcast owns, as well.

I think this is just steam's answer to the new consoles having this stuff. It works super well for a first day beta thing though. Steam owns

Yeah, but now we have an alternative to Twitch that's being pushed by Valve so people may actually use it.
