  1. Streamer Resources

    Greetings everyone! For those of you who will be streaming for Extra Life on November 4th, this thread is to provide resources for streaming. While many streamers utilize multiple streaming applications, I wanted to create a place to provide help documents for working with streaming apps. If you're just getting started with streaming, this thread will hopefully be a place for you to request help, read documents that provide instructions on how to easily set up your stream for Extra Life. For those members in our guild who regularly stream, and have experience with the various streaming apps (XSplit, OBS, Bebo, etc) it would be great if we can start compiling all of this knowledge into documents to help our guild members succeed on Twitch when streaming for Extra Life.
  2. If you've decided to start streaming for Extra Life and are using XSplit, then you might want a little help adding some Extra Life flair to your broadcast. By adding an Extra Life overlay and Donation alert, you can further engage your viewers in donating and becoming aware of why we play games #ForTheKids! First, get familiar with using XSplit! If you haven't used this broadcasting application, you should download it and then take a look at their Getting Starting guide. (https://www.xsplit.com/broadcaster/getting-started-guide/) Once you download and log into your XSplit software and complete the "Getting Started" guide, you will want to add an overlay to one of you scenes. The overlay is a great way to tell people that you are playing for Extra Life! You can download the items from Broadcaster Kit and Media Kit at https://www.extra-life.org/mediakit. Add an overlay to your XSplit broadcast software Now that you have your overlays, find the "Scene" you want to add your Extra Life overlay to and select "Add" at the bottom of the application > Media File > search for and open the recently downloaded overlay for Extra Life > click a corner to resize/reposition if necessary. Add the Extra Life Alert extension to your XSplit broadcast software To add the Extra Life alert, go to "Extensions" (top menu) > "Get more extensions" > select "Show Sources" icon (to the left of the "plug" icon) > find and select the "Extra Life Alert" > "Install" > close the plugin windows and go back to your main broadcasting screen. Now find the 'Scene" you want to add the alert box to > click "Add" > "Widgets" > "Extra Life Alerts". Click, drag and resize/reposition the alert box as you see fit > right click on the "Extra Life Alert" box > select the 'Extra Life Alert" tab on the next window > input your "Participant" or "Team" id (you can find this by going to your Extra Life participant page and grabbing the number at the end of the URL after the "=" ) > select and alert sound > check "Show Donation Alert" if you want the box to display a recent donation as if occurs > "Test Alert" to see it in action! Now your stream viewers can see your Extra Life pride, your current donation total and hear/see alerts when donations are made! Have a favorite overlay, alert or widget you use for streaming for Extra Life? Let us know in the comments below!

  7. A member of the Good4Gaming stream team, Isa_Kole, will be streaming on our twitch channel ( https://www.twitch.tv/good4gaming) on 6/13 at 7PM CST. She will be talking about her experiences streaming for charity efforts and provide details on things that have and have not worked for her while trying to raise donations. She will also be answering questions, so if you are new to the exciting world of charity streams please consider stopping by and saying hello. And for anyone interested in joining a Stream Team, our only requirement to join Good4Gaming is a yearly charity stream, so if you are here you most likely already qualify. We currently have a team of 33 streamers raising money for Extra Life, Able Gamers, Special Effect, Operation Supply Drop, and many more. If you are interested fill out the form at http://tiny.cc/TeamG4G and we will contact you. thanks, Dave
  8. Good Morning Everyone! I just wanted to share with all of you a new streaming service I was introduced to, https://www.caffeine.tv . A little about this streaming service, they just started accepting streamers about a month or to ago and they are oriented towards PC gamers currently (with plans to expand to other platforms in the future). Some things that I like about streaming on Caffeine is their real time streaming capability (not new I know, but it works consistently for me as opposed to Mixer), easy streaming setup (install their client and play a supported game, turn the stream on, and you are good!), and their client hooks a stream overlay directly into the game you are playing so you get viewer count and chat right on your game screen. Some current downsides, there is currently no way to advertise your extra life page within the stream other than the things you mention, no custom overlays are currently possible, and the client will only work properly (hook in the chat) on games that it's told to support. They are adding new games fairly quickly and most of the popular streaming games are already there (LoL, HOTS, SC2, PUBG, WOW, etc...). It may not currently be quite was some of you are looking for in tour streaming service, but the devs are very busy working on getting it up and running and they actually listen to their streamers :-) Gotta get in during those formative years :-P I've already asked them to try and look into some sort of integration for Extra Life, I will let you all know if anything comes of it :-) In the mean time, everyone over there has been awesome and friendly, so I encourage you guys to take a look :-)
  9. I have been asked to start a guide to help Extra Lifers with the technical aspects of streaming. The guide will be broken out into 3 parts outlined below.Part 1 will be the "How do I get started?" guide, while the subsequent parts will explore more advanced topics. I am open to explore additional topics for Part 2 & 3, if suggested in this thread, but Part 1 will be kept simple for the obvious reason. I will added suggestions to the Potential Additional Topics list below as I consider them and update the outline as they are accepted. Please note that if you are looking for help with building an audience or suggestions on how to get more donations, this is the wrong place to be looking. The best recommendation I can give for that is: content & personality. Guide Outline Part 1 - Basic Twitch Streaming Know Your Connection Twitch Essentials Built-in Streaming on Console Xbox One PlayStation 4 Basic PC Streaming Entry-Level Streaming Software Pre-Built Overlays Part 2 - Intermediate Streaming using a PC Other Streaming Services Robust Streaming Software Webcams Audio Mixing External Capture Part 3 - Advanced Streaming using a PC Customizing Overlays Chroma Key Audio Ducking Potential Additional Topics Extra Life JSON
  10. Hey all! I love to play competitive video games such as League of Legends, Overwatch, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, CS:GO, and so forth. I'm ranked pretty high in each game and was looking to see if we could start up an ExtraLife themed team where we could compete either in local events, or online events, and call it ExtraLife. It would probably gain some notoriety with the scene, and cause gamers to search for what ExtraLife is and such. And if we attended the same type of lan events, I'm sure people would sign up once they meet us. I'm a local around Philadelphia, PA and would love to even get some online events going. Here are a list of the games I play, and a way to contact me: 1. League of Legends - Diamond 4 Support / Top Main 2. Overwatch - Master Tier - Season 3 Ended 3800 MR, Season 4 is currently 3650. 3. Hearthstone - I normally end up around Rank 2-3, but I know there are a lot of tournaments held online for points. 4. CS:GO - Haven't played in a year or two, I was LEM before I stopped. If I had a team I could get back into it for Extra Life 5. Heroes of the Storm - Just started but I am well versatile in MOBAs and am trying to get to ranked now. 6. I also play Smash Brothers Melee in tournaments from time to time. You can contact me on: Battlenet - Clementine#11594 Steam ID - I'll modify this when I get home and get it You can always drop me a message on the forums as well. This is just an idea I had, If anyone is interested in getting a following together, it would be great and super fun! We could even stream our tournament matches, make some vods and get some publicity out there in the gaming world!
  11. Post TwitchCon 2016

    Sorry for the delay on this post but I think I'm officially done unpacking from this convention & mapped out what happened from Twitch 2016 This is what happened ! (i.e. Hotel stay was about .5 miles from Convention Center, ill be editing this because i know that I fail at grammar) Wed 28th Sept Arrived at the Hotel and checked in. Unpacked and when Pokemon Hunting, and the local gay bar (yeah sue me) Lots of Growlithe, Ekans, Geodudes. (RIP Dratini's) . I would of gone to Santa Monica Pier but that costs money (not happening). For a weekday in San Diego was busy af. Anyway, great places to go to eat but I stayed at the hotel to await Playing with Fire members. Thurs 29th Sept Had breakfast, more Pokemon hunting and tourist stuffs. (weird living in Niagara Falls, its was always the other way around) 2 Playing with Fire members checked in, then we planned for Sunday for Dinner. Had lunch (Panera Bread i had a free pastery for being in the club and a sandwich because my birthday was Sept 1) spent $5 on premium soda (because I felt boss af). More Pokemon hunting, went back to my hotel to print my Discord Unoffical-Offical Pre-Con Party. Open bar from 9pm to 2am PST.... (I'm still trying to remember that night) Went back to the hotel via UBER (Free) and crashed. Fri 30th Sept 730a Woke up breakfast then, walked to the convention center by 845a to stand in line.( I should of gotten there earlier, and brought a fold-able chair.) doors open at 9. We go up stair to wait in another line to get into the expo hall.(>.<) Then when the expo hall opened, I bolted to the merch line. (I wasn't waiting 8 hours like last year) 2 hrs later I hit the floor. I would say that i walked in that expo hall about 10 miles that day. I met with the Partnered Broadcasters and ask the questions like (What is it like to sustain partnership? What is the dos and dont's etc.) With the best answer I go was "Be yourself, and have fun doing it. Your Audience is there for you not the game. Let your fun personality shine." Im thinking to myself. That's what I'm doing already. Then i realized the reason you grow is who you know as well. Understanding the culture that we live in now, you need to embrace the streaming communities. Exchange information, be apart of their broadcasts. 1230p Went to I played the quest they had for us at the convention. Realized that its a 3 day quest to complete(wow a mmo in real life!) Turned in, Then i preceded to panels upstairs. I went to Tips and Tricks for Better Chat 330p Panel for Protecting Yourself on the Internet (Streamer Edition) then @ 530p Twitch Partnership FAQ Met with More Playing with Fire members went to different panels. Alpha tested PlayBreakaway.com that was unboxed in front of us. (sidenote: i was in the merch line and there was a HUGE black curtain over a big arena. Made it hard to get to the line. I was like wtf is this bs, then they dropped the curtain) Signed up and tested it, played it on the main stage. Got a alpha key. Signed up for streaming the game. ( I literally pooped myself. Im going to stream a Amazon Prime game that is in Alpha. I was thinking OK Jesus, i will do what you say) Met with my subscription casters (Joeneverfails, Purplekoolaidman & abraham_linksys) chatted talked to their communities. Went back downstairs to talk to a few booths talked with the Extra Life Reps. Saw, the card readers & got jelly. I didn't see Mike Kinney ( because i was looking for him all weekend, no dice) Retouched with people who became my best friend in the merch line. Went to FatShark Games Booth slide as many free steam keys because the man made a face at me. Awkwardly walked to the next booth to play Payday 2. ( I should buy this game, stream-able with friends ) Got a free shirt and bracelet. Left convention to unload swag and shower. Then UBER pool back to downtown. Met up with SkyDiveGayGuy( yeah i know, that's his twitch name ) ate subway then caught more Pokemon. Then bed. Saturday 1st Oct Breakfast at the hotel, All day talked to different booths about services that could better my live-stream. Most of them I'm already familiar with Streamlabs, BAND together app, XSplit, etc.But i wanted to get deeper into mobile. Amazon booth that you can trade in anything to open a locker filled with swag. Most got gift cards for 5, I was a pimp that walked with a $25, then i gave it to my mom when i got home. Did the quest on second day this one was more go find this because a certain computer.... in a sea of hundreds... 1p Lunch 2p Spoke with #HackHarrassment Charity (Intel Powered) about their cause 3-5p: Met with Mamas & Papa's meetup: Stream team community that i watch often. (semi-to real lewd/ weird community) 6p Sat on a panel Dire Straights: How LGBT+ Streamers Survive and Thrive. (tbh, the buffalo LGBT community could of learned a thing or 2 (or 7) about being tolerant against the internet. 7p Met with UGRGaming, DistractedElf, Anne Mution post panel. Learning to convert trolls to active community members. 8pm Left Convention had dinner with MisterGambino, and StatusChance at a mexican restaurant. The food was amazing (I paid for that extra cheese later, #lactoseProblems) 10p Departed to the TwitchCon after party at PetCo Park. So....many.....people....I....cant....move....forward.. $13 for a Rum & Coke (first and last drink from there) Watched T-Pain(nursing a hangover) Steve Aoki( threw 10 cakes into the crowd ), and Darude ( duDuDu ) Sun 2nd Oct. 12a left Park to go to Tipsy Crow, met up with Playing with Fire members Jwill, and Nelstar with PurplekoolaidMan's Mama's and Papa's 1245a Left to go to Whiskey House to meet All of Playing with Fire members and network. 230a left bar to go back to hotel. Caught more Pokemon, then went to bed. 8a Breakfast, went down to the convention enter for last day. 9am Networked, and visited more booths Hairbrained Studios, FatShark Games 11a - Livestream Amazon Studios PlayBreakaway.com received 3 keys, network (This game is what i want to stream asap. Is funded by amazon. This to me is the game to get to partner on Twitch) 230p Started to say goodbyes, got feels......alot 4pm played ShardBound seeing applied to stream when game goes into alpha. 530p - Playing with Fire team dinner @ Hard Rock 745p - Back to Whiskey house. I had no alcohol night.

  19. What is the Official Extra Life Stream Team? The Extra Life Stream Team is a group of our most enthusiastic community members who volunteer their time to provide a presence for Extra Life on Twitch.tv on the official Extra Life Twitch Channel. The Stream Team promotes the national Extra Life movement. The members of the Stream Team are goodwill ambassadors for Extra Life and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. They represent the very best of our community through their dedication and passion for gaming for charity while live streaming. We Want Streamers! Do you have streaming experience? We are looking for Extra Lifers who have experience in streaming for at least 2 hours on a regular (weekly) basis for period of 8 weeks to start. Are you well versed in the Extra life program? Can you talk about it conversationally? Great! Don't have a ton of followers? Not a problem. However, live streaming is a skill and while we understand many of you may want to ‘get into streaming’, we are looking for folks who have a bit of experience engaging the viewer. Don't have experience streaming? Start streaming on your own channel, follow, watch and participate in chat in other streams. You have to start somewhere! We have a core group that know their way around a stream and are experts concerning the Extra Life program. If that sounds like you, then we want to hear from you. Your time to shine and share your love for Extra Life Being on the Stream Team is being an Extra Life aficionado. To be clear this about making Extra Life visible and to encourage participation. It's not about your personal donation page (though a casual mention during your stream is permissible), your guild or team. This application is solely for the person submitting it. If your fellow team or guild members are interested, have them complete an application! The more the merrier! If you are unable to stream during your assigned time please contact the Stream Team Lead- @herobyclicking. What is expected of the Stream Team? Stream Amazing Content You’re free to stream just about anything you can "play". We are representing a children’s charity and you’ll be streaming on the official Extra Life channel, so we do require the following: You must use the official Twitch backgrounds provided in by the Extra Life team. Please, no modifications, donation alerts etc. These materials are approved by the national team and we appreciate you adhering to this guideline. NO PROFANITY AT ANY TIME (the all caps means we are serious). Keep it PG/PG-13 when streaming. Be sure to have an appropriate. family friendly screenname for Twitch, Twitter and the whatnot. Keep the content of your games to a maximum rating of “T for Teen.” No “M” rated games (and most games rated PEGI 16+, not sure? Ask!). This shouldn't be a big surprise! There are plenty of games to play outside of that rating. Get creative if you get stuck! Ask the Stream Team community if you get into a rut! Remember, it's for the kids. Use the Official Extra Life Stream Team assets when streaming. Console streamers MUST have access to a capture card and software that supports Twitch Stream Keys. (PS4 and Xbox One do not support this natively). Emulators and ROMS are not allowed on stream in adherence to DMCA. Contact the Stream Team Lead in the event you cannot stream. We are flexible and understanding of the needs of your personal schedule, just keep us in the loop. Failure to adhere to these expectations will affect your continued eligibility as a member of the team. It's all about Extra Life The primary focus while streaming on the official Extra Life twitch channel should be on promoting the Extra Life program. Your audience will be from all over North America and possibly the world. Focus on educating the public about Extra Life and encouraging them to register to participate. What does the Stream Team do? As a member of the Stream Team you will have... A regular, weekly, two hour block of time on the official Extra Life channel for at least a two month period. Depending on demand this could be extended. The opportunity to represent Extra Life to the Twitch community. An opportunity, once per hour, to promote your personal fund raising page, Guild, or Team on the official Extra life twitch channel. That warm fuzzy feeling of doing something that can help others join our amazing community. How to Apply You can check the official Stream Team Schedule for time slots.

Direct message the team leads, @allthewayj, @heartandthesynapse, @MajorLinux and @Quaseymoto!
  20. Hey y'all, So I was wondering if anyone uses the Extra Life notification options in Streampro for alerts a goal progress. It has stopped working for me and was wondering if anyone else is having issues with it. I am planning on doing a marathon stream and need something to track goal progress and notify everyone when someone donates. Streampro's Extra Life integration was great and I really hope it either get fixed, or I can learn why it's not working for me. Also if anyone has any other ways to get EL alerts and whatnot on my stream, I would love suggestions! I couldn't find any other options besides Streampro. Thanks!
  21. Toronto Streaming

    I'm pretty new to the whole Twitch thing, but I'm interested in getting started and possibly raising some money with it in the future. I'm between PCs at the moment, so I'll be buying a Playstation Eye so I can make my PS4 streaming a bit more presentable. When I get a proper PC built I'll go to the streaming section of the EL forums and soak up all that wisdom. To start I'll be streaming Overwatch and No Man's Sky when they come out. Anyone else here streaming?
