Below you can find the few steps required to get started with using stream labels .If you run into issues or you’re more of a visual person, here is a comprehensive video walkthrough (skip to 1:40 for instructions):
- Download from the Streamlabs Website
Click here to be redirected to the StreamLabels desktop app download page. As of now, we support Windows and Mac. The Linux version will be released as soon as it is finished.
- Logging in and setting and output directory
Upon opening the app you will be prompted with a connect to twitch button and a message saying a login window will appear soon . Enter in your twitch credentials to login and then you will be prompted again to set an output directory. Simply find or create a new folder to save all your new text files to (the my documents area is usually a good place). Now all the files will be added to the folder.✪ if the login window never appears it usually means something is blocking the pop up . We suggest allowing StreamLabels through any antivirus and if you have adblock try disabling it before attempting to login to StreamLabels.
- Adding a file
Open your streaming software and click to add a source and "add a text file". Find the read from file section and check it and then click the browse and navigate to your folder you created earlier. Decide what you want to display from the many files. (ex: If you want to display your most recent follower use most_recent_follower.txt)
Remember that the Stream Labels app needs to be opened on your computer for it to update the text files in real time. Now get to streaming! :)
