Free Stream Deck Icon Pack

We’ve designed over 180 free Stream Deck icons that you can use to create the ultimate studio controller. The icon pack has a consistent and clean design, as well as access to a Photoshop .psd file that allows you to create and expand upon the style. If you don’t own a Stream Deck or prefer to use other programs, such as Touch Portal, you’ll have no issues using these icons as they were made at higher resolution to support higher resolution displays.Read more

How Do I Setup Facebook Gaming Alerts and Notifications?

If you’re new to the streaming world, setting up your channel can be quite a challenge. We’ve worked with streamers for the past 6 years and have always done our best to make setting up our products as easy as possible. Follow the step-by-step instructions below to get started, and to be on your way to having a better looking stream!

  1. Sign up for Streamlabs.,This is currently the only place we know of that supports Facebook Gaming Alerts and Notifications. Streamlabs will be used to drive the alerts and interactive elements in your stream. For this guide, they will be used as your notification platform.
  2. Connect Streamlabs with Facebook Gaming. Under settings > account settings you will find a connections tab that let’s you connect your Streamlabs account with Facebook. This will enable Streamlabs to push notifications when you receive shares, likes, supports, stars, and more!
  3. Download and unzip one of our products. As I mentioned above, these products support Facebook Gaming. There are premium and free alerts that you can use from our website. Once you’ve found the right fit for you, download and unzip the product somewhere onto your computer.
  4. Click the import link in the product folder. Now that you’ve got the product unzipped, you can quick one of the “Quick Install” guides. While the wording may vary slightly in different products, you should be able to find a quick install link that will automatically bring you to Streamlabs.
  5. Select a theme to import the alerts into. Our quick-install link will automatically bring in any files and code that you need. Once you”ve clicked the link and you’re brought to the Streamlabs page, you’ll find that can select “USE” on any widget profile you’ve created. This will import our designs to that profile. Generally we recommend that you create a new widget profile for this process, so that you can save any of the default or custom designs that you’ve used in the past.
  6. Customize your alerts. Depending on the product you’ve selected, you’ll be able to further customize your alerts. Please refer to the product’s read me guide for more information about this.
  7. Add your alerts into your streaming software. With everything set up, we can now bring the alerts into you streaming software. This means software like OBS Studio, XSplit, Streamlabs OBS, and more. You can do this via the Browser Source option in your streaming software. This basically means you’re opening a web page in your streaming software. The webpage that you’re opening will be your Widget URL link found in Streamlabs. You can customize the width and height of this source as well, to better fit your stream design.
    1. Note: We quickly want to mention that the Streamlabs notification platform will work with all other types of streaming software.
  8. Test your new Facebook Gaming Alerts. In the Alert Box section of Streamlabs you will find buttons that allow you test your alerts. Click these while watching your software to make sure each alert works as intended.

Deadmau5's Overlay and Alerts

Deadmau5's Stream Design

Let’s take a look at the overlays and alerts we designed for Deadmau5. One of the big advantages we had when beginning this project is that the ideas wouldn’t stop flowing. I think this is the result of having such a strong brand identity and unique style to work with. As fans of Deadmau5’s music and streams I thought we’d be more nervous when working on this project, but once we got started that anxiety quickly turned into excitement. If you don't already, you can follow Deadmau5 on Twitch and Twitter.

Free Twitch Overlays

Free Twitch Overlays, Alerts, and Widgets

We’ve been making free twitch overlays, alerts, and stream widgets for a few years and decided it’s about time we made a one-stop post to help you find what you want quickly and easily. Over time we’re seen a lot of new users coming to our site and we wanted to make sure they knew the full scope of free twitch overlays, panels, and general resources that we offer. While Twitch is definitely the most popular streaming platform that we support, almost all of the items listed here will work with Facebook, YouTube Gaming, Mixer, and more!

Our goal with our overlays is to make them modular. Meaning you can use the bits and pieces that you want to. This also will allow you to use things like the color correction source in OBS Studio and Streamlabs OBS to make it fit your stream’s theme. While some items may have a “suggested price” on them, just enter in “0” for the price to get them for free.

Our complete list of free Twitch overlays, alerts, and stream widgets

Below you’ll find a list of free overlays and scene designs. While some may have a “suggested” price, you can enter in “0” to receive the item for free.

Get started with our free Twitch overlays

Ready to go? We’ve included a section in our shop specifically for free resources. However, this post will detail more about each pack and the extras they include. While we offer a lot of free resources our shop contains premium items that you can purchase and use on your stream as well.

Custom designed free Twitch overlays

The overlays below are “lite” versions of full packages that we’ve made. Typically these are static (or non-animated) overlays. But, we do our best to pack all that you would need to create a full stream design. In fact, most of them come with free Twitch panels, icons, and a bit more.

Clearview Lite

This overlay was create to give off a clean, professional, and unique look. You can easily adapt this design to most games and applications, making it perfect for those of you that do IRL streams or variety gaming. It works with all major streaming software.

When downloading, make sure to select the “lite version” option.

Download Clearview Lite

Extras included with Clearview Lite

A lot of the packs listed in this post will have more than just free overlays included. In the case of Clearview you’ll also get access to icon designs, Twitch panels, and stinger transitions. This pack is at the top of our list for a reason!

Stone Fire Nerfed

Listen, we love “clean and modern” as much as the next person, but sometimes you have to change it up. Stone Fire was created for those that want more theme and texture in their overlay designs. This free Twitch overlay includes webcam frames, supporter sections, and Twitch panels.

Download Stone Fire Nerfed

Stone Fire was designed for League of Legends and DotA 2 streamers

Components of the overlay pack are specifically made for LoL and DotA 2  streamers. We did our best to design it in a way to let you show as much of the action as possible, while still showing the information on your stream that you need to.

Free Overwatch Overlay

This is one of our first free Twitch overlays that we designed and remains one of our favorites. This pack includes multiple webcam frames, support panel layouts, and a HUD that you can align to the bottom of your stream. The only difference between this pack and the full version, is that it is non-animated.

Download the Overwatch overlay

Did you know we have a free to use Overwatch panel maker?

Looking for Twitch panels to compliment your new overlay? Look no further, our free to use Overwatch Twitch panel maker let’s you customize and download Twitch panels to fit the Overwatch design aesthetic.

Free Call of Duty Overlay

While this overlay was originally designed for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, we think it still holds up today. It features multiple webcam layouts and a supporter section design that lets you decide if you’d like them to be stacked vertically or horizontally. A great option for new streamers.

How to get dynamic labels in your stream, a helpful tip to new streamers

One of our most frequently asked question is: how do I get the usernames to update automatically on my overlay? To add these dynamic “labels” to your scenes, you’ll first need to add text sources. We recommend entering in some demo text so that you can position and size your text properly. Please note that’s best to change the font size inside of the text source properties, and not drag to scale (this can cause blurry text).

Next, you’ll need to download and run a program that updates text files dynamically as you get new users, tips, subscribers, etc. A good place to start is the program Stream Labels for StreamLabs. When you install this program, it will create various text files on your computer that you can then sync inside of OBS Studio (or your streaming software).

In the text source properties enable “read from file”. Here, you will “browse” to find a file that you want read and synced inside of your streaming software. Choose the appropriate file, and then it will be connected and updated automatically.

No Man’s Sky Free Overlay

One of the biggest video game disappointments turned out to inspire one of our favorite overlays. While this is a “No Man’s Sky” overlay, don’t let the name fool you, this overlay was designed with a sci-fi feel, and a clean look that can work on any stream design. With the announcement of No Man’s Sky Next, this overlay should keep your stream looking great for years to come!

Create your own free Twitch overlay

We get a lot of questions about looping popups, so let me explain the easiest way I’ve found to make these happen. First, design something cool in After Effects or similar. Second, export that as a WebM. Finally, create a local HTML page that plays that WebM on loop with a bit of delay. If you’re reading this post, it’s likely you’re interested in creating stream designs yourself. If you can pull off the steps for creating a social media popup, then you can make everything else listed in this blog post. In my opinion it’d be a solid place to start and to challenge yourself a bit.

More free Twitch overlays we recommend

Unfortunately not all of the best free Twitch Overlays are on our website… but we’re working on it! However, we have some other options that you can check out on our sister-site Twitch Temple.

We’ve included a wide variety of design aesthetics. From sci-fi and clean/modern overlays to textured and themed. Let us know if you think there’s a design we need to add next! We’re always looking to improve what we have on our site and your suggestions are what help us the most.

MANvsGAME Twitch Stream Design

MANvsGAME Stream Design

Not much needs to be said to introduce someone like MANvsGAME, a man who's name is synonymous with Twitch streaming. His content and ambition to conquer games is one of the reasons I found video game streams appealing when I started watching. It's more and more common to make games the focus of the designs. Shying away from overlays, bulky bars, and an overload of information is a trend that viewers and streamers alike are embracing more and more. This design is no exception.

JoshOG's Stream Design and Alerts

JoshOG's Alerts and Stream Design

Within a few minutes of discussing the ideas for JoshOG's stream, we knew we'd have to do things differently. The most exciting aspect of this project was that the alerts were the main focus. I mean come on, how often do  you get to work on a duck driving a spaghetti shooting tank?

Flisky took on a majority of the design process and animation, while I figured out how to get things to work within StreamLabs, Muxy, and OBS Studio. Also, I'd like to thank the artist that created the duck mascot for their work on the vector files used in this project.Read more
