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 :-)

So, in the two minutes I've been watching a stream, I must say I'm impressed. I might have to spend a day looking into this...

It's pretty neat, still a lot of work to be done and the Devs have plans ☺️ Looking forward to where they take it.
