With Lightstream Studio on Mixer there's no need for complicated broadcast software, even on your Windows 10 computer.

First, enable your Game Bar enabled inside of Windows itself. 

To enable it, follow these steps:

  1. Open your computer's settings by hitting your Windows key
  2. Type “Settings” in the search field and hit enter. 
  3. Proceed to the “Gaming” section, 
  4. Toggle recording/broadcast to “On”

To start a broadcast from Windows 10:

 Simply start your game and press the shortcut to launch the Windows 10 Game Bar (by default, this is Win + G)*. 

*You may be presented with a dialog that asks "Do you want to open Game Bar?". If this happens, tick the box that reads "Yes, this is a game".

The Game Bar will appear below the chosen application. Press the broadcast button as shown below (alternatively, you can always begin the broadcast without the game bar with Win + Alt + B).

The Mixer broadcast dialogue box should then appear. From there, you can choose to stream the game window or your entire desktop. 

You can also configure webcam placement and provide a title for your stream. When ready, press the "Start broadcast" button to go live on Mixer.

If you've added overlays and alerts in Lightstream those will appear over your gameplay capture on the Mixer site.
