Frequently asked questions
Does capture card help streaming?
If you play and stream on the same PC, the capture card won’t make any difference. These devices are used only to transfer data: to another computer that is configured for streaming or (if the capture card has a PC-free mode) to an SD-card. If you have a second PC or want to stream from a console, the card will help.
How to start streaming on Twitch TV?
First, get a Twitch account if you don’t have one. Then, download and install the Open Broadcasting Software. After that, go to the Settings menu and choose Twitch as the service. Visit the Twitch website, get a stream key from the Settings menu and type (or just copy) it into the Stream key field in Open Broadcasting Software. You’re done!
What equipment do you need to start streaming?
Basically, a single computer with Internet access and software installed will be enough. Of course, you can add a webcam, a microphone and an audio mixer to this combination, but all will work even without these additions. Don’t forget to make a streaming channel!
