Wondering how to set XSplit up to stream your games? This guide should answer every question you have.

In this guide, we cover:
– Where to get XSplit
– How to link XSplit to your streaming service (Justin, Twitch, UStream, Own3d)
– How to calculate max bitrate
– What resolution you should stream at
– How to get game & mic sounds over the stream
– How to insert pictures, text, webcams, and game images into XSplit
– And more!

Streaming depends a lot on your PC’s specs and internet connection. Streaming is like running a 2nd game of equal/greater spec requirements on your PC, and it’s very dependent on a stable, fast internet connection.

If you have the specs and bandwidth, you’re 50% there. Watch this tutorial for the rest.

    How do I make the scenes automatically play as a slide show? I stream live weather coverage and have multiple maps and I want it to automatically switch scenes for me.

    Why isn't "virtual camera output" a streaming destination option instead of being a "general" tab option?

    If you just want to mux a lot of video and audio sources to an application that takes a single camera as its input, you don't need to stream your XSplit to any network-based service. The only output for XSplit would be to the camera.

    The presence of "virtual camera output" on the general tab makes it look like the virtual camera is in addition to the streaming to a network service?

    You really need to consider your viewers internet speeds when choosing what resolution you are streaming at, It is recommended you streram at 720 regardless of you pc and internet speeds.
