How do I stream my gameplay?
Mixer is integrated into the game and will stream at 4K. On a console you can open Mixer from the Guide, or install the Twitch app to stream. You can co-stream in Mixer with up to 3 other players on Xbox. On Windows 10 you can open the Game Bar with WinKey + G (or Win+Alt+B to open Broadcast) to start streaming.
Software: Chatbots such as Nightbot and Scottybot can enhance your stream by automating welcome messages for viewers, muting offensive chat behavior, and adding features such as raffles and points. Restream allows users to simultaneously stream to Twitch and Mixer and other platforms. Graphics card makers NVIDIA and AMD offer their own streaming software GeForce Experience/Shadowplay and Radeon ReLive. Third party software XSplit and Wirecast and OBS Studio are other popular options for encoding streams on YouTube and Facebook.
Hardware: A microphone and camera (or Kinect) are not required but will enhance your stream. Elgato sells streaming/capture devices for PCs. See also the See the Hardware & Peripheral forum for tips.
Making a living: Look up Partner Programs on Mixer and Twitch and YouTube to see how you can earn income from streaming games. One of the most important aspects of being a successful streamer is consistency (regular schedule etc).
