Downloads

Below are the links to the software you will need to download and install. The links below are setup to ‘open in new window’ so you don’t have to worry about losing your place on this site. I’m also going to assume from here moving forward, that you are the administrator for your computer and can install software.

I just reformatted my PC so I will be doing this setup process myself. That way everything has been tested.

OBS Studio

Pretty forward setup. Just like installing any software.

  • Download Software, Save, Open the .exe

  • If your specific camera is a ‘realsense camera’ you can check the box in ‘Choose Components’ option when installing.

  • Start OBS Studio

  • It will ask if you want to use the auto-configuration wizard. I would for starters.

  • Optimize for streaming, recording is secondary.

  • Base (Canvas) Resolution: Basically, what do you want to stream at? I stream at 1440p. You can do whatever you like. 1080p or 1440p.

  • FPS: Generally with Hearthstone you want to lock it at 30 fps. This will make sure that the quality being displayed is high. You can also choose ‘Either 60 or 30, but prefer high resolution’ too. 30 is fine though, unless you get complaints from viewers.

  • Streaming Service - Twitch - It will have a blue (Link) you can click on to get your key and copy it.

  • Prefer hardware encoding, estimate bitrate should be checked. You might need to switch to software, but start with hardware encoding.

  • Next runs the test. Apply Settings. "(Check the applied resolution to make sure it didn’t drop it down. If it did, go to File, Settings, Video, —> Output (Scaled) Resolution and make sure it’s at the right settings. This is good for people who record in 4k and down sample. Or people with slower PCs.)
