Switcher Studio's Twitch integration allows you to stream to Twitch with only a few taps. There are three core steps to going live:

  1. Linking your Twitch account to Switcher Studio

  2. Setting up the Twitch stream

  3. Starting the Twitch stream (aka going live)

This article provides options and step-by-step instructions for each step. Use the links in the list above to skip to a specific section.

Linking your Twitch account to Switcher Studio

In order to use the native Switcher Studio / Twitch integration, you will need to link your Twitch account. You will need to do this to initially begin streaming with the integration, and you will occasionally be asked to reauthorize your Twitch access. You will not have to do this every time you want to stream.

  • Tap the "+" icon in the Outputs tab.

  • Tap Connect Account.

  • Enter your Twitch username and password (this is different than the email address/password combination that is used for your Switcher Studio account).

  • Tap Log In.

  • You will receive an SMS text message to the phone number linked to your Twitch account. This phone number was chosen when you created your Twitch account originally on twitch.tv and is not determined by Switcher Studio.

  • Type the code provided via SMS text message into the Token box.

  • Tap Verify Token.

  • Next, you'll need to authorize your account. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click Authorize.

Your Twitch account is now linked to Switcher Studio!

Note: The Twitch linking authorization expires occasionally. If you receive an error message about a user token, or if you are prompted to relink your account, you can easily relink in the Switcher Studio Dashboard or iOS app.

Setting up a Twitch livestream within Switcher Studio

Step 1: Select the Twitch destination in Outputs

  • Open the Switcher Studio app on your main switcher device and go to the Outputs tab (box with arrow icon).

  • Tap the blue arrow next to Twitch.

  • Tap the name of your Twitch account.

  • You will be taken to the stream setup screen.

Step 2: Set up the stream settings

  • Enter the fields for Title and Category.

  • You can also choose whether to implement a delay or ingest the servers.

  • Then, select a quality for your broadcast.

Note: Keep in mind the quality of your production still depends on the strength and consistency of your network. If you are concerned about your upload speed or reliability of your network, we recommend selecting a lower stream quality to prevent broadcast issues. This article outlines the minimum upload speeds for each stream quality.

  • Once you are satisfied, tap Save.

Starting the Twitch Stream

After tapping Save in the step above, you’ll be taken back to the main Switcher Studio screen, with the Outputs tab visible.

  • Tap Twitch to select it at your streaming destination. Once selected, there will be a blue checkmark visible.

  • If everything looks correct, tap the big red button in the top-right corner to go live!
