In a recent article, I wrote about how to create a gaming video from XSplit Broadcaster for YouTube. Since then, the software has had a few adjustments. Today, I am going to cover a bit about how to make a quick YouTube video from Broadcaster. This doesn’t include adding the game capture, though.
If you want to stream to Twitch and have the ability to modify your broadcast’s appearance, you’ll need good streaming software. Personally, I use XSplit. However, I wanted to test out why so many people prefer Open Broadcaster Software. So, I decided to compare XSplit to OBS to see which is better.
XSplit Broadcaster is not only an easy way to stream game play to Twitch. It can also be used to promote your game play on YouTube. If you’re looking to market yourself in the digital world, it’s a good idea to have your social bases covered. When you make YouTube videos, you can broaden your target audience. Personally, I use Broadcaster to make the health videos I’ve been developing for Crossing Colorado. The potential is great, and it’s not that difficult to do. In fact, you can probably get started right now.
When you want to stream your games to services such as Twitch, you need broadcasting software. If you’re not technically inclined, you need streaming software that is easy to use. XSplit Broadcaster may be one of the easiest methods I have used for sending my games to my Twitch channel. As a large portion of the application is automated, people of all technical skills can benefit from this software.
If you use XSplit Broadcaster to stream on Twitch, you may experience a doubling effect from your microphone. If the game itself is working fine during the stream, meaning it doesn’t have the same echo effect as your voice, then you might have too many recording devices enabled. This produces the echo on Twitch stream as the software is pulling from more than one source. XSplit Broadcaster may be to blame if you have verified that there are no other devices recording your voice.
