How to set up a livestream gaming marathon

The most popular platform to live stream your gaming is through Twitch. Use the links below to ensure that you have set up the basic requirements to do this.

Create your Twitch account 
Set up your JustGiving page

Setting up a Twitch account and a JustGiving page will mean supporters can watch you play and donate to your page, but they will have to leave your livestream to do so. Using video broadcast software, such as OBS studio, you can create browser source overlays in Twitch to get in stream donations and keep people watching. 

In order to do this, you’ll have to connect your JustGiving page and Twitch account.

Use JustGiving’s step by step guide to setting up OBS, Twitch and JustGiving. Now you are ready to start gaming!
