Add overlays and alerts to PS4 streams to Twitch with Lightstream

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to personalize your Playstation 4 streams to Twitch without a capture card using Lightstream Studio.

In this video we’ll cover how to:
1. 0:09 | Setup Lightstream
2. 1:01 | Get a Playstation game source into your project
3. 2:09 | Add overlays, alerts, and other media with our editor
4. 3:39 | Adjust a one-time network setting change on your PS4
4. 4:20 | Go live and control your stream

You’ll need a PS4 and any basic PC or laptop for the initial setup. Once setup, Lightstream will automatically add overlays, alerts, and other media to your stream everytime you go live. Look like a pro with a streaming PC or capture card.

    I was going to use this but you need to pay for it

  • Meister-Fuhrer 4 months ago

    seems pretty easy, way easier than shit obs. but i wish it wasnt 12 God damn bucks. The process is kind of like discord, easy, fast, and works better than most in game comms. yet, they only charge like 5 or 6 bucks, which seems immensely fair.

    I can't get it to work on PS4. According to your website you have agents available to chat etc… I go to ask them for help "unavailable" waste of money.

    Do you have to change your WiFi settings to use light stream on PlayStation?

  • bexxyrae 4 months ago

    Hey there. I am using a LAN cable for my ps4. I've tested this 50 times and each time I set my DNS to this it takes my upload speed down to around 2.5Mbps… when my normal speed is around 80.0-100.0Mbps. Huge difference. (I need an upload speed of at least 4Mbps to stream) The first few times I used streamlight it worked fine but now it's not working at all. My stream keeps dropping out and it makes it completely unplayable. If you could give me some advice? I know for a fact it's the DNS because when I put it back to normal my speed is back. Thanks for your time. I don't want to get rid of streamlight I have loved it the first few times I've used it but now if this continues I can't keep it.

    How does this work when a playstation camera is connected? I tried to stream to Twitch the other day and I could see myself on my monitor I was playing on. When connected to Lightstream, will this remove my facecam from what i'm seeing on my gameplay monitor?

  • Marie Music 4 months ago

    Hi I added this to my streams and I can’t figure out how to set up the alert only to appear when someone follows. I added it into my 3rd party but it shows the whole time and doesn’t pop up
