Streamlabs OBS allows you to view multiple windows like chat box, video editor, Streamlabs dashboard etc in one place. This walkthrough will show you exactly what each window provides and how to utilize the window to improve your stream. Let's get started!
The app will automatically take you to the editor window after the initial onboarding process, and when you first open the app. The editor window allows you to make changes to your scenes, sources, and mixer and you can see how the broadcast will look like in the video preview.
Scenes: A content set up with a group of arranged sources. EX: Stream starting soon scene, Be right back scene, League of Legends game capture scene.
Sources: The visual components of each scene which may include overlays, widgets, game capture, window capture, images and other assets you want to add.
Mixer: The audio, recording, and visual control of your stream setup. You can adjust audio filters, mute or adjust the volume, and change the audio/recording devices to your preference. You can also toggle with facemasks and other filters in the mixer control.
The dashboard window is extracted straight from the Streamlabs website. Once you log in through SLOBS, you will be automatically logged in on your dashboard. You can access everything on the window from widgets, alert profiles, donation settings, account settings and more.
Tip: You can change your alert profiles and alerts straight from the dashboard window. You'll never need to use your browser to make changes ever again!
You can see the preview of the overlays in "library" and click on the themes to install them. These overlays (regular and animated) are FREE! Each art frames are adjustable and removable. You can further customize them in the editor window.
Live Window (Recent Events)
This window is your Recent Events window on the Streamlabs website. You can see the most recent stream events, redemptions, giveaways & polls, and the overlay extension music player in this window. You can pause, mute, and skip alerts whenever you want with the control buttons on the top right corner.
