How to Set Up Streamlabs
Well setting up stream Lab is not an easy job. It’s a three-step process.
And before you get into setting this up, make sure you have an existing Twitch account.
Now let’s get started –
Well as the heading suggest, Streamlabs comes with a complicated dashboard.
So much complicated that a newbie will find it hard to work around it.
Don’t you believe me?
We’ll head over to the editor tab and see for yourself.
Isn’t this complicated.
Now that you’re into the editor tab, let me know what do you think?
Well, if you’re having a hard time using it, I would recommend you to watch this short video for better understanding of the dashboard.
Adding Widget & Themes
A unique widget and themes setup is what sets your dashboard apart from other streams.
But just like it’s complicated dashboard, setting up widgets and themes isn’t easy at all. In fact many of you wouldn’t agree with me as some may find this to be quite easy to use.
But for me, when I started streaming, I found that I found this part even harder then browsing through it’s complicated dashboard.
Now comes the difficult part, how can you add widgets and themes?
Well first head over to the add Source tab in the settings of the Streamlabs app. Along with some options you will also see a widget menu. Click on it.
if you don’t have a better understanding of what you’re doing, I would recommend you to play through with these options one by one.
Then device what do you want. Add a widget it switch or switch themes.
To switch a theme, head over to the themes menus in the settings and choose any one theme out of all the available themes.
And the great thing about steamlabs is that even if you have not purchased its membership it lets you use switch to a different theme as per your requirement, then customize it and then at last, install it on.
Go Live or Start Recording
Despite the complicated dashboard, once you have got the hang of the editor tab, what do you wanna do?
Once again, head over to editor tab and finally choose an option between –
LIVE STREAMING or START RECORDING.
