Types of Streaming

There is an array of reasons to live stream your online activity, from pursuing it as a casual hobby to establishing your own personal brand. Although PC gaming makes up the majority of the live streaming market, it's not the only style of content viewers crave to take part of.

A PC gamer's streaming setup

PC Gaming Streaming

If you're going to be broadcasting yourself playing the latest games to a live audience, then you need a rig that can handle the graphical intensity of modern gaming as well as the processing power required to record, stream & edit simultaneously. Whereas Console streaming may allow for more budget friendly hardware, if you're looking for that high octane, gaming and streaming PC experience, then a rig equal in graphical and processing prowess is required.

A console gamer's streaming setup

Console Gaming Streaming

So, you're a Console gamer looking to stream your favourite games from your PS4, Xbox or Switch console to a live captivated audience. If this is the case, you're going to need a system capable of streaming, editing & rendering. As you're playing these games on a console, you don't exactly require a top-of-the-line GPU. This enables the processor as the main focal point of the system. Arguably of equal importance, if you're looking to stream at high resolutions with the lowest latencies then you're going to want a top-of-the-line capture card to go along with your system.

A in-real life streamer's setup

IRL Streaming

If you're an IRL Streamer and don't want to be tied down to one streaming category, then you should be looking at a rig with great flexibility. If you're streaming out in the wild or hosting a live talk show, you're going to want a system that can handle high resolution editing along with some capable memory and a CPU alike. With IRL streaming, it's not about your performance in game, it's about showcasing that distinctive personality that keeps viewers tuning in for more! And what better way to help facilitate this than some top grade streaming equipment such as a microphone, stream deck & webcam.

The Streaming Setup

The key parts of streaming

For the ultimate PC streaming setup, you'll need a great combination of streaming peripherals and a high-end streaming computer.

CPU

1. CPU

The CPU is the main number-crunching 'brain' of a system. It's what programs (by-and-large) run on though it does occasionally call upon the aid of other processing units. The CPU is also one of the most important components when it comes to editing & rendering videos.

A Graphics Card

2. GPU (Graphics Card)

The Graphics card's (GPUs) job is to process high-quality images to the screen as quickly as possible. Ideally, it needs to do this sixty or more times per second (60fps) if you want that crisp, smooth streaming experience. The GPU is of high importance if you're looking to stream the likes of recent AAA games.

A Capture Card

3. Capture Card

A capture card is a physical device commonly used to 'capture' gameplay footage from a console or even another PC. The footage can either be streamed live to your desired streaming platform or saved to be edited and uploaded as a video. Capture cards can take the strain away from your system, reducing stuttering & improving stream stability.

Webcam

Webcam

A webcam is a digital camera that connects to a computer and streams video in real-time. Plenty of streamers stream without a webcam, but if you are an aspiring IRL streamer, a webcam is an essential piece of hardware used to showcase that vibrant personality to your audience.

Microphone

5. Microphone

Discrete microphones are excellent for streamers. How else will you efficiently captivate that live audience or defend yourself against chat as you repeatedly fail at what they see as an easy game? If you want something that plugs straight into your computer, look for a mic with a digital USB connector. Often higher microphone quality correlates to higher stream quality; keep that in mind.

Stream Deck

6. Stream Deck

A stream deck is a small control panel with various buttons, which can be customised to fit the user's needs. Stream decks have become a staple for any aspiring streamer as they provide seamless in-stream functions such as scene changes or even soundboard functions without the need to tab out of your session.

Key Light

7. Key Light

If you're looking for the best face-cam quality for your streams, a key light is another essential piece of kit. Key lights ensure your face is evenly lit, increasing visual quality & enabling a more professional looking stream.

Peripherals

8. Periperals

Having the smaller parts of a streaming setup is also important. This can be things like a headset, keyboard, or a gaming mouse. Without your favourite peripherals, your gaming/streaming setup is not complete.

Custom Streaming PCs | CyberPowerPC UK FAQs

How to stream on Twitch to PC?

Twitch Studio is the perfect tool for quickly setting up your stream and going live. The Twitch studio tutorial will walk you through adjusting audio inputs, connecting to a webcam or headset microphone (for video), finding an accustomed resolution size that works well with both clarity of content delivery as well as aesthetics on screen at any given time during gameplay exposure periods - all within one simple interface!

To make sure you have the best experience possible on Twitch, we recommend that all broadcasters adhere to these requirements.

A solid internet connection is necessary for your broadcast.
Streaming software will allow users of any device or platform access through their web browser - including mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets!
A machine that will run your content needs top performance from its cpu/gpu + ram so it can stay online during peak hours when there's lots going down at once.

How to stream Xbox to PC?

You'll need to connect your HDMI out of the Xbox One console with an external video capture device in order to stream live gameplay. You can either use one monitor if you want both software feed and game play on display at once, but a better experience. It's best to have two monitors.

How to stream Nintendo Switch to PC?

Dock your Nintendo Switch, and then using a HDMI cable connect the input to your capture card. Using a USB cable connect your capture card to your computer. From there your capture card will record, save and stream your game play straight to your PC.

What is the best streaming software to use?

With the number of streaming software options growing exponentially, it's hard to keep up with everything out there. Here is a list of some popular and powerful ones you should consider using in 2022: OWN3D Pro OBS Studio, Streamlabs, OBS, LightStream, vMix, XSplit Broadcaster, Gamecaster, Nvidia Shadowplay and Wirecast.

What is a dual PC streaming setup?

Dual PC streaming was considered the best way to maximize your performance, with two separate computers, one for gaming and another solely used as a broadcasting station. However, with modern components like the 30 series GPUs, the latest Intel and AMD CPUs, and the launch of DDR5 RAM, one PC with a capture card will be powerful enough to stream, create, game and anything else you do on your computer.
