Streamlabs OBS

When it comes to setting up the stream, most people prefer not to mess around with their software and they choose something like OBS Studio or XSplit. But who said that ‘the most popular’ equals ‘the best’? That’s what Streamlabs stands for. It proves that sometimes you can find the best options in unpopular resources.

What is it?

Streamlabs is the streaming app packed with a lot of features. Of course, it deals with its basic function – streaming – with ease. But, as any other tool, it has its own advantages. What is important, it provides a huge variety of add-ons in order to make your stream unique.

Features

Face masks

Everyone needs money. But most streamers simply put donation sound over money transactions or only read the donation message’s text. Streamlabs allows you to put the “face mask” on the top of your head after you get a donation. “Face mask” is a custom 3D-animation which will trigger each time after you’ll get a donation. They look funny and entertaining which can certainly boost channel’s revenue.

Easy setup

Even though Streamlabs is often considered as a professional streaming tool, it doesn’t mean that it is hard to set it up. In fact, you only need to import stuff from OBS, which usually takes about a couple of seconds and then you can go live.

RAM Save

Streamlabs actually cares about users with slow PCs. For example, it allows you to combine multiple windows like Twitch Chat, Twitch Dashboard, Streamlabs and OBS, etc. into a live view. That will save you up to 25% of CPU and RAM, which is undoubtedly great.

Better video encoding

Streamlabs can reduce CPU usage even more. You can reduce over 20% of total CPU usage while having the same quality. In case you have a powerful PC you can also make your video look two times better with the usual amount of CPU usage. This option gives some profit to enhanced PCs but can also be used on low PC settings.

Mobile streaming

Some great games can be made exclusively for iOS or Android. What shall you do then? Some people download PC software like BlueStacks in order to play them on PC. But they can’t suit every mobile game: for example, you can’t play ‘Piano Tiles’ with ease on it.

That’s why Streamlabs made a mobile app which allows you to stream live on Twitch and YouTube in just a tap. You can also share your camera or screen. And there is no need to set up widgets, app will do it automatically for you. You only need to click on the icon of the widget you’d like to include and the software will do everything else. Your desktop settings will be synced with your mobile and then you can stream with ease. By the way, you can also do it on a go. Just open the app and start streaming whenever you like.

Widgets

Of course, if you have seen how other people stream, you might have noticed that they have chat overlays on their streams, or donation goals, or other stuff like that. These things make stream more interactive. And, of course, Streamlabs allows you to have your own.

As in any other aspect of Streamlabs, the setup is quite easy. Just click on the icon of the widget on the website and you’ll have it installed in a few seconds. One of the most significant widgets is, of course, the donations widget. With it you can collect tips from your viewers without any fees. Paypal, Webmoney, credit cards and many other payment services are supported in over 20 languages in order to make it easy for the viewers.

Chatbot

Sometimes you don’t have enough time to look in your chat in order to answer viewers’ questions. Just to simplify your life you can add a chatbot. It was written on Python and it suits Twitch streams very well. It provides both moderation and entertainment features for your stream so you can focus on what you do the best – playing games and interacting with your viewers.
