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


Sodapoppin's Overlay and Alert Design

I was given the opportunity to work with Sodapoppin, one of of the biggest streamers on Twitch. This all came about because a fan of the site tagged me in a Twitter post (thanks K!TTeN).  I enlisted the help of Froyd, who worked on the initial design for the overlay and the motion graphics. We created in-game overlays, a custom intro/intermission screen, and some of my favorite alerts yet. Let's take a look at how it all came together.Read more

Stream to Twitch and Youtube at the Same Time, and Many More!

In this post we're going to talk about how to stream to Twitch and YouTube at the same time. We'll also cover how to stream to Hitbox, BeamPro, and much more simultaneously - and it’s completely free.

One of the questions I get asked a lot is, “what service should I stream to?” The answer I give is usually Twitch or YouTube Gaming, but there’s a lot of merit in other services such as HitBox, BeamPro, and a few others. Usually my answer depends on what the goal of the streamer is, but with a the service ReStream.IO, there’s almost no reason you have to choose a specific streaming platform anymore.
