Streamlabs' new Multistreaming feature gives live streamers the ability to stream simultaneously to Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube. It is the only Multistream experience entirely integrated into a popular desktop live streaming tool as a first-party integration. Today we are going to show how to set it up and start streaming using Streamlabs Desktop.
Link Your Accounts
Because we built this Multistream feature from the ground up, we’ve designed it to be as streamlined and straightforward as possible. First, open Streamlabs Desktop and click on the settings cog. Open your stream settings and make sure your Facebook Gaming and YouTube accounts are linked.
Update Stream Info
After linking your accounts, press the “Go Live” button to bring up the “Go Live” window. From here, you’ll be able to toggle which platforms you’d like to stream to.
The title and description you choose here will reflect across all streaming platforms (please note that Twitch does not have a description and will not display on your Twitch stream). The game category needs to be selected individually because each platform has a unique game library.
For those that want an extra level of control, toggle on “Show Advanced Settings.” On this page, you can fill out all the information for each platform individually. It also allows you to set more advanced platform-specific features like tags on Twitch.
