Can I go live to Twitch/Facebook/YouTube from my Xbox without a capture card, as I did with the Mixer project?

While we only support direct console streaming to Mixer, as of June 25th, the Mixer integration will allow you to stream to your Mixer channel and your new platform (Twitch, Facebook, YouTube) simultaneously!

This feature is available to anyone with a Lightstream Gamer subscription and Mixer Pro users.

View our blog for more information regarding these changes.

Is there any way I can stream from Lightstream Studio to Twitch, Facebook, YouTube?

Lightstream Studio supports broadcasting to all of these platforms through a computer. To bring in your console gameplay, we currently require a capture card. You can do this with the RTMP Source layer.

Can I move my overlays from the Mixer Project to Lightstream Studio for Twitch, Facebook, YouTube?

During the Mixer transition, we’d be happy to accommodate you and transfer your Mixer Project into a Studio project. Please reach out to us via our in-app chat so we can get you taken care of.

When will direct console capture be available for destinations other than Mixer?

We’re working on it - the news around Mixer came as much as a surprise to us as I’m sure it did for many of you.

In the meantime, you can sign up for our Lightstream Gamer subscription trial to stream to Mixer in addition to your new platform for free! We are actively working with Microsoft to capture your Xbox feed even once Mixer is gone.
