Tools for streamers

If you’re wanting to stand out from the crowd there are plenty of ways to jazz up your stream. We’ve pulled together our favourite third party tools and created some Mind branded resources to help make your stream generate the most money and raise awareness for Mind in the most fun ways.

Streaming software

Once you’ve got your game sorted you will need some streaming software to connect with your audience.

  • OBS Studio is free software to help you stream to straight to Twitch, YouTube, Facebook and many other platforms. You can even stream to multiple platforms at once, ideal if you have an audience that hangs out in different places. There are a lot of cool guides out there on how to use OBS, including a fun wiki page
  • Streamlabs OBS is another free streaming software, which is maybe a little simpler, and more user friendly if you’re just getting going with broadcasting your event. We especially like the goals and alerts widgets on Streamlabs, which is a fantastic tool to help you keep your audience, engaged with your fundraising and thank them for those live donations.
