What do you need to start streaming games to Twitch or YouTube?
Instead of simply playing PC games, if you’ve ever dreamt about thousands of people watching you play them live on a streaming platform, you’ll be pleased to learn that it’s relatively straightforward to get started. All you need is a capable PC, some additional equipment, broadcasting software, and you’re good to broadcast out to the masses.
All the hardware you’ll need to stream
Whether you want to broadcast on Twitch or make Let’s Play videos for YouTube, there’s some equipment you’ll want to invest in first. Before we even consider software choices, you need to make sure you’ve got quality hardware for capturing voice and video, so you can properly interact with your audience.
What you’ll need inside your PC
Building a gaming PC is one thing, but putting together a machine that can not only handle playing a PC title but can also encode a continuous stream and publish it to the outside world, that’s a whole different ballpark. Luckily, it’s not difficult to build a PC that can do both to a degree, and if you want to take streaming seriously, you can later add a separate dedicated streaming machine.
