With that in mind, we’ve separated some frequently asked questions and tips that we’ve developed over the course of this year to help your career as a streamer and finally achieve your dream of reaching the top of Twitch!
What are Twitch Overlays and Stream Packs?
Twitch Overlays are graphic projects designed to improve your stream and consolidate your brand making your viewers realize the value of your stream and have more engagement generating your own community. However, we felt that Twitch Overlays lacked something more and that we could add more elements such as banners, emotes, alerts, subs medals, scene transitions and other features to their lives.
So we created Stream Packs, complete packages for your stream containing the essentials to become a professional and successful streamer, with everything from overlays to elements for Twitch, OBS Studio, Streamlabs Desktop and Streamelements.
We also know that there may be some questions left over from the stream pack items such as “What is the Stream Starting scene for?” and “How to best use it?” with that in mind we will explain each item in the stream pack and how to use them in the most efficient way.
What is the Starting Soon OBS scene for?
The Stream Starting or Starting Soon scene is one of the most important for your stream, it serves as a “Waiting Room” for your viewers to wait while you make the final adjustments to your live, but do you know what all its functions are?
1. Share your live link on social media
A great use of this scene is to share your live in the main media such as instagram, twitter, facebook, whatsapp and discord groups, so people who click on the link will stay in this scene until you start the live, this helps in the retention of the audience as it is good better than broadcasting your offline stream and people finding an off channel and then closing it down to do something else.
2. Adjust the songs in your stream
We all know that a stream is much better with music and this is the perfect time for you to adjust your playlist to liven up your audience while waiting for the stream to start, remember that Twitch doesn’t allow copyrighted music to play so always look for copyright free playlists, we recommend Streambeats created by Harris Heller which contains great songs 100% copyright free.
3. Adjust and check sound, dropped frames and stream settings
This moment is also for you to check if the frames are good, the volume is at the right time and if everything is configured to start your stream in the best possible way.
