How to Stream to Twitch on PS4

This shows how to stream to twitch with your PlayStation 4, and PlayStation did an awesome job in incorporating live streaming software and equipment all with the PlayStation 4, it's super easy, super convenient, and high quality.

Here I'm going to show you how to stream to twitch with your PlayStation 4, so you can see here we've got the PlayStation 4 dashboard loaded up, so the first thing you need to do is set up your twitch account, and how you going to do that is you're going to when you're at the dashboard.

Go ahead and press the share button on the PlayStation 4 controller, that's going to bring up this, where you can upload a clip or upload a screenshot, then you see down there in the lower left corner, it says options, so we're going to press the options button on the controller, and go to share settings from here, you go to broadcast settings, and this is all your settings for when you live stream through the PlayStation 4.

First thing you need to do is sign in your twitch account or Ustream account, that's where you go to manage account information, and you can see view stream, or I've already got my twitch account loaded in there, so you can delete it, this is where you can update information for either account. Once you have that, you go back and then you can mess with the settings here with comments on the screen, with or without them, you can use the microphone from the PlayStation 4 camera or the headset, and you can include your video from the PlayStation camera in your broadcast, the quality I would imagine you'd always want that set on high, because what it does takes is based on your internet connection, it's going to give you the output quality, so if you have a good upload speed, good internet connection, it's going to go ahead and give you the best quality, slower ZAR going to not be as good, but I would recommend always leaving this a high, so you get the best possible output.

Once this is all set up, you need to load up a game, so you back out of that,t and you pick a game, let's load up blacklight retribution, so we're going to go ahead and start that boom here, once the game has been loaded up, what you're going to need to do is press that share button again, and then broadcast gameplay, so you click on broadcast, you can choose Ustream or twitch, I have the twitch account, so I'm going to go ahead and choose twitch, select that and then this is where you get the options.

If you have your Facebook or Twitter account linked up through the PlayStation Network, you can post a link every time you livestream, so you can check mark, Facebook boom will go ahead and do it, if you let you know who's going to do, it gives you an automatic message that you can edit and then you can update the message, so I'm going to delete this, because that's not Killzone using the motion controller here, I'm going to say blacklight, and then I'll put gameplay done, black light gameplay start broadcasting boom my camera, my PlayStation cameras a little off to the side, so that's why it's not there, but you see in the upper right corner, the broadcast has started boom, so if I was in there out there, I'm looking good, so there it is, you can see who's watching comments are going to be down below, and you are live streaming when you are done click that share button one more time, and stop broadcasting it's as simple as that.

PlayStation did an awesome job in incorporating this live streaming software and equipment all with the PlayStation 4, it's super easy, super convenient, I really like it and it's high quality too, if you got the internet connection, you're going to get a good live stream, it's really cool, easy to use, and I'm really enjoying it so far, so if you guys have any questions let me know in the comments down below, and if you're new be sure to subscribe and follow me on Twitch, because I'm going to be live streaming a ton as I have a ton of games to play on my new PlayStation 4.
