Hey everyone, in this video we’re going to discuss what alert system you should use as a new streamer on Twitch. Then, at the end of the video I’ll walk you through how to set up some on screen labels to display your latest stream supporters.

If you’re not familiar with alert or notification systems, they’re applications that allow you to display on screen events, which are generally when someone follows, subscribes to, tips, or hosts your Twitch channel. So in essence, they’re a way to show an on screen ‘thank you’ to the people that are supporting you as a streamer.

We’ll start with Twitch Alerts. This application is probably the most popular one out there – and for one big reason – it’s easy to set up and understand. If I needed to set up a new stream and I could probably do it within 2 minutes, while using Twitch alerts. This application is mostly web based, but like a couple of the other choices that we have, it has a downloadable program that we can run on our computer and use to monitor the alerts from our viewers – the program, called Stream Labels, will also update text files that we can bring into OBS. These text files can be used as a static on screen label of who our recent follower was, and a host of other options.

Let’s move on to another alert system that is quite new – Muxy.IO . This is my personal go-to alert system. I’ve been working with these applications for years now, and was impressed when I first tried out Muxy. Like almost all of the system we’ll talk about, Muxy does feature a dashboard with analytics, easy to set up basic alerts, a downloadable program called the ‘Ticker’ that will provide similar functions as Twitch Alerts. Muxy also makes it easy to set up alerts with Patreon and Gamewisp, as well as integration with Discord. They even allow connections to Twitch Alerts, Stream Tip, and NightBot. If some of these names don’t sound familiar, don’t worry – we’ll talk about them soon.

Another popular option is StreamPro.IO – I actually made a full video about StreamPro – so if you’re interested, check that out to get the details. One thing that has changed since that video, is that StreamPro is now under the same company as Twitch Alerts. This makes a lot of sense to me, as I feel that StreamPro brings a lot to the table in terms of being current.

This app is more than just a notification system. It featuresan easy to use overlay system, to where you can add in different widgets, and customize them to your liking. Once you’re done – you can bring in your design to OBS or any streaming software via the browser source. So in essence, your overlay and alerts system is saved in the cloud. You can also work from pre-built templates which will allow you to get graphics added into your stream within minutes. Notable widgets are their twitter feed, straw poll, and simple to add Twitch chat.

Another new system that I just haven’t had the time to fully experience and review is Gaming For Good. This platform originally began as a way for streamers to raise funds for charities, but has evolved into so much more. From what I’ve seen so far – it’s very quick and responsive, and easy to set up. A really cool part is that you can set a specific percentage of the tips that you earn to go to integrated charities such as Save the Children, or you can set the full amount to go to yourself. It also has a cool YouTube Jukebox that allows viewers to pay for songs to be played on your stream.

  • Aeroica Gaming 6 years ago

    Do any of these sites, such as Twitch Alerts, work for YouTube's live stream service?

  • DirksModsCz 6 years ago

    Only two thing that you forgot.
    1. When you use Gaming4Good alert for donation, you don't have to solve chargebacks, because money goes to g2a wallet and chargebacks are solved by g2a.
    2. For donations which goes to charity you and donator gets points (donator gets twice as much as streamer i think) and for that points you can buy games or streamer can make auto subscriber giveaways (when someone subscribes he can get game for your points)
    Btw. Your tutorials are awesome. Keep up the good work :-)
