Streaming FAQ

Brain still boggled by streaming? We have a few frequently asked questions, complete with helpful answers, for you to peruse. 

Can I stream from my gaming PC or laptop? 

For the most part, yes you can stream from your gaming PC or laptop. The caveat is you need powerful enough hardware to do so. Twitch officially recommends a dual-core CPU and 4GB RAM, but if you want to run your game smoothly whilst streaming, then it is advised you opt for higher core counts and RAM capacities. Our “What are the Best PCs for Streaming?” article goes over everything you need in detail. 

What platforms can I use to stream? 

There are a few streaming platforms available to use. Twitch is the most popular by far, with YouTube a solid alternative. These both integrate well with streaming and broadcasting software. For more info, read the “Everything You Need for the Ultimate Streaming PC for Twitch and Co” article. 

Do I need dedicated software for streaming? 

To get the best out of your stream, it is advised you use specialised streaming software. This could be Open Broadcasting Software (OBS) or Streamlabs OBS. Both are free to use and have user-friendly interfaces to streamline the process. For more info, check out “Do You Want to Get into the World of PC Streaming?”.
