I WoW on twitch on a regular basis and unless some other bigger streamer shouts/raids you, You will have a very small chance of suceeding on twitch as a WoW streamer.Asmongold owns the WoW sector at 40k viewers a stream
I aspire to upload vids to YouTube that might help fellow players. I’ve found it generally rewarding but my audience isn’t a tenth of the streamers that I follow. Cusps to everyone pushing to make the community better!
Don't feel like reading all that right now but I plan to come back to it. I do want to mention to anyone that just wants to upload to youtube, windows 10 has a built in game DVR you can activate by hitting "win + g" it works pretty well for what little it does.
it is difficult to pull off for some.... im not the best player of wow nor the best streamer but i still strive to get better in both aspects and i really appreciate and enjoy seeing things like this come across my newsfeed. so thank you wowhead and all you wow partnered streamers for giving your insight to us smaller streamers that are trying to grow.
the tutorial linked for OBS is SUPER old, 2012, there have been multitudes of changes since then, esp OSB Studio. who uses a camcorder via elgato link? that's for higher end streamers who can invest that much money into a camcorder (the one in his clip is $700!). a logitech c920 is gonna be pretty much what anyone needs and a heck of a lot cheaper ($50). and if you spend time tweaking the contrast, brightness, gain, and exposure, and setting up your lighting right (tons of tutorials out there) you can make a logitech c920 look fairly close to what his cam looks like, just not at 60fps. He even says his webcam is on "default settings" so yeah of course he is gonna looked washed out, his gain and/or exposure was probably too high, esp for the lighting he had.since WoW isnt on console, dont even to include the elgato capture card in this guide unless people are planning on streaming with dual PC, who can afford two PCs?, and even then you dont need a second one. you can get a pre-assembled Raspberry Pi for like $80, though that is a bit more technical (lots of tutorials out there). the elgato hd60 pro is gonna set people back $190.stream deck? sure, after you have been streaming for awhile. they arent necessary, esp if you have a 2nd monitor. another unecessary expense of $140 as they are just an item of convenience.I'd say this guide is intended for the more advanced streamer, sort of, definitely not an intro guide nor intermediate. Even Preach Gaming doesnt use an expensive camera. Dont invest thousands of dollars into your streaming gear unless you know you can recoup those costs within a couple or few months. which 90% of streamers wont be able to. heck my stream setup only cost my about $200, not including the PC......Cam, xlr mic, scissor boom, green screen, usb mixer, logitech c920 webcam, a 2nd monitor I bought used from goodwill for $20 and away I went. Maybe commission a digital artist for some cool graphics & layouts (never ask them to do it for exposure!) but again, not necessary but custom graphics are pretty nice.nightbot? sure if you are streaming on youtube, if streaming on twitch or mixer there are better bots out there like scorpbot or scottybot
No one should ever be encouraged to stream.
If anyone is thinking this article is anything more than a big advert for Elgato and Co. Then you are out of your minds 😝 If/when you want to start streaming, you should be searching at the right places for the right setup within your budget.
I see a lot of "don't promote your stream here" yet the very first thing in the guide are promoted streams.
Made me laugh someone actually had a "hey Ladies" button for their streamboard thingy. So greasy :\
Love this guide. Thankfully I'm already following some of this, but there are some pearls of wisdom in here as well.
How is this even allowed to post here? You guys getting sponsored? All I see is elegato here, elegato there...Ppl are not allowed to promote their own stream in the comment section, but all you do is promoting other streamers and one brand fo get the stuff from.contradictory much?
Can't we all just get along, all i see is a bunch of whining, for a guy like me wants to get into streaming but doesn't know where to start on setup. Found this article useful, gave me some insight and helpful tips to think about and that was the point of the whole thing. NOT promoting this person or that person, this thing or that.
i'm not planning on ever steaming (seriously, who'd want to spend 3 hours watching a female gnome mining or a male pandaren fishing?) but some of the info here will be useful to me as i am getting back into videography and film-making.last time i was active in those fields, VHS was high-tech and dial-up was a smoking 28800. there seems to have been 1 or 2 minor changes since then and while a large chunk of this article will be useless for me, the other 15% i am glad to have available.
