Twitch’s platform and you want to start taking your content on the go to expand
out into mobile streams well if you are you’re in luck because twitch came out
with an update to their mobile app that makes mobile streaming on Twitch easier
than ever I’m gonna show you how to do it and the best tips and tricks to make
sure you have a successful mobile stream and we’re get started right after this
looking to upgrade the production value within your stream look no further than
OWN3D.TV from overlays to alerts to stinger transitions to emotes own3d has
got you covered from beginner to professional simply find a graphic or
design that fits your style and flair for your stream and before you purchase
you can see how it will look with their interactive showcase it’s time you
became bigger and better by heading over to by clicking in the links
below! alrighty let’s dive right into it now obviously if you want to stream to
twitch from your mobile device please make sure you download the mobile app
before you proceed now this video will work for both iPhone and Android but I’m
gonna show you how to do it on my iPhone because that’s all I have access to but
the steps are basically the same so you’ll be able to keep up likewise for
next your little tease I’m gonna show you some awesome tips at the end of this
video so make sure you stick around and now we’re gonna go over to the mobile
device open up your twitch mobile app and in
the top left corner will be your account go ahead and click on that and
in the header you will see the go live button when you click on the go live
button it will take to the video feed of yourself below how you doing there let’s
start from the top and work our way down for everything so that way you’re good
to rock and roll and the top right corner right up there is what flips the
camera from front facing to back facing and you can do this in between your
stream if you want to a little bit more on this later so right now you look at
me but I can flip this and it’s around and show what my camera is looking at
right now it’s looking at the cradle and monitor not much to see and you can flip
it right back with one easy touch right below this is your information about
your account that you’ll putting up on your broadcast so your
name and then describe your stream is actually your stream title so we’re just
gonna title this test for the video here and hit done and below that is you get
to select your category now they’ve made this a little more streamlined by giving
you default categories that you can go to for IRL streams so pick which one
best suits your needs for this I’m just gonna do just chatting for the tutorial
and below that is where you get to share it too now you can share this with
different social medias or you can even share it with different people that you
might want to have tuned into your channel and all the way at the bottom is
the start stream when he hit start stream to technically get it to go you
have to rotate the camera and this will activate it let me get somewhere I can
go over three two one you’ll start broadcasting now at the top of the
header there it has your title in your stream and then also if you tap on the
screen there you will get the overlay for flipping your camera if you need to
do that just like we do here again can’t see much of anything cuz it shows the
cradle and if you need to end the stream hits right over there on the right side
is where it will populate the chat for when people start typing in to your
stream everything like that and at the bottom shows you that your live or if
you’re gonna have any interruption issues and the bottom right-hand corner
of the video player itself has three dots that allows you to share the stream
again so this way again you can access if you need to tweet it out or post it
anywhere for a certain link or if you want to mute the microphone or hide the
chat so that way it goes out of the way and you can even click back the chat if
you need to alright so for the last option where you can lock your screen
I’m a little bit confused because when I first did the recording on this video I
thought lock screen literally meant you would lock your screen at a horizontal
and when you record and you turned it to show like different angles and move it around
it wouldn’t adjust the camera frame and it did that the first few times but now
it doesn’t seem like it does that anymore so then I assume perhaps maybe
lock screen made it so you couldn’t accidentally touch buttons like hit the
end stream button when you didn’t mean to but it doesn’t do that either so I’m
actually not entirely what locking your screen does so if
anybody knows out there make sure you leave a comment down below or twitch if
you’re watching how about you let us know the only thing that I think that’s
really missing from this introductory version of mobile streaming to twitch is
you really don’t get to pick what resolutions you’ll be broadcasting at
and we also don’t know what kilobit rate we’re broadcasting at so I don’t know if
it’s on a dynamic basis where it will automatically adjust for the best
situation for where you are in your internet but I can only assume that’s
probably the way that it’s built since that’s almost streaming services and
broadcasting services are going well you made it this far so allow me to give you
some awesome tips gonna allow you to crush it when you’re doing your live
mobile streams to twitch now our first tip is is if you kind of have a little
bit of an older phone I would recommend only keeping the front-facing camera or
the camera that faces away from you and not flip it flip-flopping between the
two that often because switching that camera has a hard time keeping the
processing power going and there will be a lot of stutter which can make you
drop a lot of frames and sometimes can even crash your stream so think about
what content you’re gonna be generating pick one and stick with it
number two is think about where you will be streaming through the entire movement
of the stream as in where you’ll be walking around to and think about if
there’s gonna be strong internet or not or even Wi-Fi because the whole point of
this tip is you need to pick if you want to have Wi-Fi on where it’ll be
searching for it or off and going off LTE 5G 4G whatever you have access to
the reason this tip is important because if you tell it to search for both and it
looks for Wi-Fi but keeps flipping between LTE and back and forth there’s
gonna be a lot of stutter and a lot of drop frames because your phone doesn’t
know what to do so if you have access to a certain point like a hotspot or Wi-Fi
just stick with that and that way you’ll have a flawless stream or if you’re on
the go where there’s not a lot of Wi-Fi stick with LTE 5G 4G and that way you’ll
have a good stream angles are super important when doing a mobile stream so
make sure you invest in something that’s gonna give you good angles cuz nobody
wants to look up at your nose for an entire stream so make sure you invest in
like a nice selfie stick or a good little tripod or self stick that can
hold your camera we’re even like a Joby Gorillapod stand
so that way you can mount your camera somewhere will be easy to see you and
what you’re doing for the content that you’re generating you can even get like
a switchblade tripod so that way you can have a tripod and a nice little hand
grip selfie stick mount that you can take on the go but this really helps
with capturing what you’re trying to do that you want to show to your audience
and trust me it’s gonna pay huge dividends mobile streaming to twitch is
a great way to give your community more of what they want which is obviously you
so go ahead and give mobile streaming a shot and if you do and you like it

  2. They still haven't fixed the issue on Android where when you go live, and turn the phone, it just sits at the 3 and never counts down. I opened a ticket with support and they said the below:

    Thank you for taking the time to submit this feedback.

    I wanted to let you know that I have passed this information along to the appropriate teams and developers for investigation.

  3. I have started a twitch account, and invested so many hours into it. I have made pretty much every social media account posible, personalized my twitch account and done over 80 minutes streaming so far. However, I am only on 3 followers, any advice anyone?
