Many game vloggers have turned up in recent years.

 

With users like Pewdiepie and Jablinski leading the forefront of game streaming, we all wonder, how exactly does one broadcast? What is the easiest way? How do you do it from the comfort of your home, without all the expensive tools-of-the-trade?

 

Steam allows users to broadcast their games via their own profiles. These streams can even be accessible via a web browser, making them even more open to the public. In the age of Web 2.0, game streaming has become quite a hype. Is it lucrative? It can be. It is fun? Of course.

 

So how do you do it? Let’s start!

 

From the Steam UI, go to the Settings (which is Steam>Settings). From there, you will be faced with different categories of configurations.

 

From the Settings dialogue, find the one on Broadcasting, in the left-hand side.

 

 

From the Broadcasting tab, make sure that you have the right configs checked, or else your broadcast might not be at par with your own internet connection. Either people might not be able to watch your broadcast properly, or your connection would not suffice to give them the stream.

 

 

Below the quality settings, there are options on whether you would wish to use your audio sources, such as microphone, or external sounds, within the game. You may opt to include your comments, background sounds, or even your very own funny sound effects if you were to check these boxes.

 

 

Go to the Downloads Tab, and make sure you have enough bandwidth available for streaming, and not being used for downloading, patching, or updating your games. These things could slow down your stream, make them inaudible, or make them stop altogether.

 

From there, start playing!

 

You will be given a prompt on the Steam overlay whenever someone decides to watch your broadcast. If you put your broadcasts to “everyone”, the public may choose to watch your streams from your profile, and a thumbnail of what you are currently doing is present there for users to see.
