You should know, however, that not every computer is capable of streaming, While the requirements change depending on the games you plan to stream, I recommend having at least 4GB of RAM, a high-end graphics card (Ge Force or Radeon with support for Direct X 10.1) , and a powerful processor, such as a second generation Intel Core i5 or Core i7.
These specs will make it easy to stream popular games like Dota 2, League of Legends, World of Warcraft, Titanfall, or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
All you need is the console, a Dual Shock 4 controller, a game to play, a stable Internet connection, and a Play Station 4 camera, which will allow others to see and hear you. To start, press the Share button on the controller while playing a game.
Interested in broadcasting your gameplay to the world?
This guide will tell you everything you need to know about setting up a Twitch game stream.
It can be a bit more complicated to use, but this guide from Twitch will help you get started.
The hardest part about streaming isn't setting up the software, it's building an audience. That's why I spoke to current game streamers about what new users could do to build an audience.
From this menu you can also enable your webcam, change video and audio settings, and more.
While the Gamecaster software is free and easy to use, it does have its flaws.
This can be done by clicking on the "Open Authentication Window" box and signing into your Twitch account.
Then just simply launch a game you want to broadcast, click the CTRL and Tab key after it has launched, and select the "Stream" option.
Most people aren't going to watch a streamer who plays an unpopular game.
The people I spoke to recommended choosing new games or older ones with large followings.
That amount may seem odd for people who aren't familiar with the service, but Twitch's traffic is huge.
