Stream Without a Capture Card: How to use Lightstream with the Twitch Xbox App

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

In this video we’ll cover how to:
1. 0:09 | Setup Lightstream
2. 1:03 | Get an Xbox game source into your project
3. 2:18 | Add overlays, alerts, and other media with our editor
4. 4:04 | Control your stream

04:21 IMPORTANT: Don’t navigate away from the Twitch app until the “Start Streaming” button changes to “Stop Streaming” and the red LIVE rectangle appears.

You’ll need an Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S and any basic PC or laptop for the initial setup. Once setup, Lightstream will automatically add overlays, alerts, and other media to your stream every time you go live. Look like a pro with a streaming PC or capture card.

    The only thing that I don't like is that we have to pay for this, I know it isn't that much but for streamers on xbox starting out it will be complicated.

  • xDarkhartProx 2 years ago

    Just an idea! Maybe adding transitions when switching scenes or have them go smoother to switch scene. I have overlays with transition scenes but i dont wanna click one then the next one then next one lol BUT I LOVE USING THIS! Makes my whole stream VERY PROFESSIONAL

  • Abdiel Urbina Vargas 2 years ago

    As soon as I bought Lightstream, I use Xbox to transmit but when I do live with Lightstream the live is lagged and when I do the live without Lightstream it goes well, I have 150 megabytes internet and I do speed tests while being live and everything is fine … Anyone do you know any solution? Lightstream is a very good tool and I want to continue using it without lag 🙁

    @Lightstream Can you stream to multiple platforms? Sometimes I stream to YouTube, sometimes to Facebook gaming and sometimes to Twitch. If I sign up, will I have access to stream to all of my preferred services or do I have to just pick one and not have access to the others? @Lightstream
