Have you been wondering what Twitch is all about? It is the largest streaming community online. But, it is complicated for a newbie to stream there game there. Why? The mobile app does not give users access to streams games directly from their phone. Maybe, in future, they will release an update that will allow that.
For now, the app allows you to stream IRL with your camera and microphone. So, if you just want to watch any streamer, you don’t need this guide, just get the app.
But for other, you need to have a streaming app designed to stream from your android phone. The best and only working one is OBS – Open Broadcaster Software. It is open source, meaning that if you are a developer, you can edit and add more features.
The app is not for android. You need to download and run it on your computer.
Before you start it, go to your mobile app store, search for any screen recorder, and then install it.
Once you have really done that, open OBS. Connect your device to your PC and enable USB debugging. You can do that by going to Settings – About Phone. Tab on build number 10 times.
Wait for it to display, you have unlocked developer options.
Enter developer option and enable USD debugging by turning it on.
Once you do all that, connect your Twitch account to OBS, start the mobile screen recording app. Then start the game you want to show. OBS will pick up the recording and start showing it live on Twitch.
Is the tutorial not simple?
You must take into some certain things while performing all that. They include:
- You need to connect using a USB cable.
- Your phone must be powerful to run an interesting game.
If your cable is bad, or doesn’t fit in tight to your device, you won’t succeed in during this.
If the device you use has a very low RAM, you will only stream games for dummies.
So, you need to ensure that you get all those two stuffs set before you think of showing everyone the game you play.
If you can’t, then it is best you just record a video and post on other video sites. That will be better and may not need a high end device for during that.
